I ended up with this in a lot. It's a 1969 Impala low profile body. I assume it's bagged because it wouldn't fit in the standard boxes.

Very unusual.
1968 or '69 I believe.  But hard to tell as you didn't show the taillights clearly.
Nice find!
I would say build something cool to go under it but.... you would be better suited finding a vacuum former to donate it to.
But that's just my opinion.

Sweet find!

Thanks.

 

It's a '69 with the rectangular lights. 

I'll have to decide which way to go with it.

Everyone should be aware that offering a vac body to be used to make a new mold does not mean that body is harmed or destroyed.    It's a simple matter to pour silicone inside the body and remove it after it is cured.      This inner silicone plug is then used for  the rest of the mold making procedure. 

 

 That is it, the original body is then wiped out and put back in the original package.   No damage at all is done to the original.
