Car: Chevrolet Impala 427 Hardtop Coupe
What makes it special: The full-sized, fourth generation Chevrolet Impala was produced for the 1958 through 1970 model years. It received numerous facelifts and restyles throughout the years.
What made it famous: The 1969 Impala and lower based models were given crisp body lines and grilles wrapped up by a chrome bumper. Ventless front driver and passenger windows were now the style. The standard V8 was the 235hp, 327, with optional choices like the 255hp or 300hp 350 V8, 265hp, 396 V8, or the 335 or 390hp, 427 V8. The L72 425hp 427 was also available. All engines were available with a three-speed Turbo-Hydramatic, but the two-speed Powerglide was still available for the 327 and 350 V8’s.
Why I would want one: Growing up, we had a 1969 Impala Hardtop coupe with the 327 V8. I always loved the inward, “V-shaped” rear window.
Fun fact: The Impala was created as a “Junior-Grade Cadillac.”
