1967 Chevrolet Impala SS 396 Coupe
Chassis no. 168877L123629
As the roaring '50s segued into the swinging '60s, Chevrolet moved with it by introducing a new top-of-the-line sporting full-size car in 1958the Impala. Initially featuring the classic finned styling of the 1950s, by the Impala's fourth generation in 1965, the Coke-bottle lines that had come into vogue made their appearance. While the first generation cars, offered in 1958 only, came exclusively as two-door vehicles, the following generations expanded to feature a full range from coupe to station wagons and powered by everything from anemic straight sixes to fire-breathing big block V8s.
The offered Impala features styling emphasizing the Coke-bottle lines that debuted in 1965 and was update for '67. Trimmed in Butternut Yellow over black vinyl, there are a number of desirable options installed. While the SS package was just a trim package from the early 60s onward, this Impala is fitted with the second most potent motor, the 325hp/396cid big block V8, and running through the optional console shifted Turbo Hydra-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, so there is no question that it will accumulate pace with haste. Inside, the optional bucket seats and center console greet the lucky occupants.
Acquired by the vendor in 2007, it has been used exceptionally sparingly and currently shows a hair over 80,000 miles on the odometer. Now ready to move on to the next keeper, there are few better vehicles with which to smoke a pair of Goodyear Eagles than a big-block Chevy Impala.
