Part of the fourth-generation Impala, the 1967 model introduced a series of styling improvements and safety changes, including the addition of side marker lights and fully collapsible steering columns to absorb the energy of the impact.
On the other hand, the engine lineup was pretty much the same as with its predecessor, with Chevrolet now offering the 427-ci (7.0-liter) V8 with 385 horsepower as a high-performance option.

The Impala you see here retains the 1967 styling improvements rolled out by Chevrolet but, on the other hand, received several upgrades, including one under the hood.

First and foremost, it’s worth knowing the car was purchased from the very beginning to be transformed into a replica of the Impala used in the TV show Supernatural. As you can easily figure out by simply browsing the photos in the gallery, the project hasn’t been completed just yet, though certain improvements, fixes, and upgrades have already been performed.

It all starts with the engine, as the original unit is gone, and now the car is powered by a Chevrolet 350 small-block bored out to 355. Paired with a Turbo 350 transmission, the engine now produces some 400 horsepower and has been used for approximately 20 miles (32 km) since it’s been rebuilt.

The Impala comes with the original door panels, a new headliner, show accurate wheels and tires, and factory air conditioning. On the other hand, rust can also be seen in several areas, including the trunk, so if you’re planning to continue the project and restore the car to show condition, dealing with this problem should be a priority.

The Chevy has been sitting for over a year, and although it was running before being parked, some fixes might still be required to get it back on the road, the owner says.

So how much is a 1967 Impala in this condition and with several extras really worth? The owner says at least $6,000, as this is the starting price of the eBay auction where it’s listed. The car is parked in Sainte Genevieve, Missouri.
