1967 Chevrolet Impala Parked Inside for Decades Hides Changes Under the Hood

The 1967 Impala is part of the fourth-generation lineup, and for many people, the first thing that comes to mind whenever this series pops in is the sales record the 1965 model managed to set in the United States.

Because yes, the 1965 Impala was a record-setting release, as it managed to sell over 1 million units in the U.S. alone in just a single year.

The models released in the following years too recorded strong sales, with the Impala eventually becoming the second best-selling convertible in the United States in 1966.

Model year 1967 came with little changes under the hood versus its predecessors, as the car continued to be available with the same base 250ci (4.1-liter) engine developing 155 horsepower, with V8 options including 283 (4.6-liter), 327 (5.4-liter), 396 (6.5-liter), and 427 (7.0-liter) units.

The Impala that we have here is a 2-door fastback that no longer has the original 283 under the hood, but the Craigslist owner claims they found another correct 283 that’s now paired with a Powerglide transmission. They say the powertrain comes from another 1967 Impala, but unfortunately, no further specifics have been provided.

But overall, the car looks good, and the seller claims the car has been “stored inside for several decades.” The Grenada Gold paint is said to be the original one, and while there’s indeed some rust on the frame, the undercarriage looks in good condition.

Needless to say, this isn’t a car that comes in tip-top shape, but on the other hand, it’s a solid candidate for a restoration, though the engine switch under the hood may not be everybody’s cup of tea.

The odometer indicates 62,000 miles (close to 100,000 km), and several parts missing from the photos are said to come with the car.

Listed for $7,000, this Impala appears to be coming with a rather ambitious price tag, especially given all the rust and the non-original engine under the hood. However, if you want to check it out in person, the Impala is parked in Northfield, Minnesota.
