History:

The Chevrolet Impala is a large sedan car built by the Chevrolet division of General Motors in 1958 [3] to 1985, 1994 to 1996, and from 2000 to 2020. The Impala is Chevrolet’s popular passenger flagship and, in Overall, it was among the best-selling American cars in the United States until it was discontinued.

For its debut in 1958, the Impala distinguished itself from other models by its symmetrical triple rear lights, which returned from 1960 to 96. The Caprice was introduced as a first-rate Impala Sport sedan for the 1965 model year, later becoming a series separated above the Impala in 1966, which, in turn, remained above Bel Air and Biscayne. The Impala remained Chevrolet’s most popular full-size model until the mid-1980s. Between 1994 and 1996, the Impala was revised as a 5.7-liter V8 version of the Caprice Classic sedan.

In 2000, the Impala was reintroduced again as a mainstream Hi-Mid front-wheel drive sedan. As of February 2014, the Impala 2014 ranked number 1 among the Great Accessible Cars in the US ranking and in the World Report (U.S. News & World Report’s rankings). When the current tenth generation of the Impala was introduced for the 2014 model year, the ninth generation was labeled Impala Limited and sold only to fleet customers until 2016. As of the 2015 model year, both versions are sold on United States and Canada, and with the current generation Impala also sold in the Middle East, the People’s Republic of China and South Korea. It was used as a taxi and as a police vehicle.

 

Fourth generation (1965–1970):

Redesigned in 1965, the Impala set an annual sales record of more than 1 million units in the USA. All new large Chevrolets excluded the “X” frame for a full-width perimeter frame, a new body that featured curved, frameless side glass (for models without a column), more sharp angled windshield with ventilation windows recently refurbished and redesigned full suspension coil.

In 1965, Chevrolet introduced the Impala Caprice, exclusively as a four-door hardtop. The Caprices received tufted upholstery, grainy wooden accents on the panel and special door handles inside the doors. This “halo” model also featured the Impala SS spinner wheel covers, with the centers of the “SS” logo replaced by a Chevrolet “bowtie” (bowtie) emblem. The Super Sport’s dark rear trim strip below the triple taillights was also used, with the “Impala SS” emblem replaced by a large “Caprice by Chevrolet” emblem. The Caprice Custom was reintroduced as Chevrolet Caprice in 1966, taking the top position in the Chevrolet line of large size.

Engine options included the six-cylinder in-line, as well as the small-block and large-block V8s. A new three-track Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission was optional on the 396 cu in (6.5 L) V8. The old 409 cu in (6.7 L) “W” engine was discontinued at the beginning of the 1965 model year, so the 1965 production got the 409, as well as 1/10 of 1% had the 396 large block CID. Other cars built later had the option of 396 cu in (6.5 L) as the big block. Two Powerglide speeds, as well as 3 and 4 speed manual transmissions were available. As in previous years, Impalas featured more chrome trim inside and out, with pleated tufted upholstery and door panels. The Impala would be the No. 2 best-selling convertible in the US in 1966, with 38,000 sold; He was defeated by Mustang in almost 2: 1. [16] 1966 saw a pair of large V8s enlarged with 427 cu in (7.0 L). The RPO L36 was rated at 385 horsepower, the L72 at 425. The L72 was only available with a manual transmission.

The 1967 model was redesigned with an improved Coca-Cola style that featured protrusions of front and rear fenders inspired by the Corvette. The curves were the most pronounced with the 1967-1968 models. In accordance with federal regulations, safety features were incorporated into the Impalas during the 1967 and 1968 models, including a fully flexible energy-absorbing steering column, side lights and shoulder belts for closed (non-convertible) models. The L72 engine was not available in 1967, but an L36 Turbo-Jet V8 was optional.

The 1968 model had a “facelifted” face with a new front end. The new rear bumper opened the triple “horseshoe” rear lights. In 1968, a new Impala model, the Custom Coupe, was also seen. This two-door hardtop featured the same formal roof as the Caprice Coupe. It was successful and would continue until 1976. The L72 “427 Turbo-Jet” engine was again on the list of options, a continuous lift V8 rated at 425 horsepower. It would remain available for 1968 and 1969, replaced by the Turbo-Jet 454 for 1970.

The 1969 Impala and other oversized Chevrolets acquired new slab-shaped bodies with a small “upweep” in the rear window, giving them a more formal appearance. It maintained the 119-inch (3.02-meter) wheelbase of previous models. New front bumpers that wrapped the grille and the horizontal taillights were on the rear bumper. The Sport Coupe hardtop obtained a new line of notchback roof, replacing the “fastback” C-pillar from 1967 to 1968. Ventless front windows were used on all models. Chevrolet had a rudimentary “electric ventilation” system with openings in the instrument panel. The ignition key was moved from the instrument panel to the steering column, and when the key was removed, the steering wheel and shift lever were locked.

The 1969 model, Impala production reached Caprice production in 611 thousand units. Impala wagons were renamed Kingswood, a name that would continue until 1972. The similar Impala from 1970 achieved a lower facial elevation with a more conventional method under a parallel grid that replaces the wraparound unit used in 1969, along with the new vertical taillights rear bumper. Canadian buyers chose a lower-priced companion for the Impala Sport Coupe, the Bel Air Sport Coupe, which used the same body, but featured a Bel Air trim.
