The 1967 Chevrolet Impala SS 427 is the kind of coupe we are all on
the lookout to find. It's a factory big block machine with the
numbers-matching powerhouse under the hood. And it's stock
everywhere from the factory paint to the nearly impossibly low
mileage. It makes for a preserved muscle car legend that's a true
rarity wherever it goes.
It is believed that the odometer represents the car's actual
mileage, and so this coupe has averaged less than 450 miles
annually. For us that would mean driving from Charlotte to Bristol
Motor Speedway once a year...and nothing else! And racing is the
key to this car's unique past. We have a ton of original paperwork,
and the story we're told is that this coupe was purchased new by
Mr. Eirk to use the big block as the tow vehicle for his Corvette
race car. So we suspect there was a lot of time just pulling Sunday
duties. More than just a great story, you'll love this one for its
level of preservation. The Nantucket Blue paint is believed to be
the original finish applied by the St. Louis factory over a
half-century ago. There are some touch-ups and marks from over the
years, but it seems more like the kind of pieces that come from
spending so much time in the garage. And that's why this is an
impressive survivor. It has a well-kept appearance, right down to
the premium black vinyl roof. Today we know to covet the '67
Impala, because they introduced some of the curviest fenders of the
era, and that just seems to go perfectly with the Sport Coupe's
fastback profile. And this is also a real-deal Super Sport that
impresses with the vent trim hood, SS callouts, Rally wheels, and
redline tires. It makes for a true muscle car that's also a truly
The time capsule preservation continues on an interior that's equal
parts luxury and sporting. For example, you have individual bucket
seats up front, but they are plush with a button-top presentation.
The center console, floor shifter, three-spoke steering wheel, and
full gauges w/tach all add to the sporty attitude. The radio is a
great classic touch with a factory AM unit with a separate 8-track.
But now there's also a CD changer hidden in the trunk to give you
true cruising music. There's plenty of room in this full-size
coupe, but even when going solo, this Impala is still a great ride.
After all, the power windows mean never having to leave the
driver's seat to show off the pillarless hardtop profile.
Under the hood is a clean and correct engine bay. Even the hood
light works! You'll love that the fresh orange block and polished
valve covers seem to radiate from within the dark inner walls
because it draws plenty of attention to the numbers-matching 427
cubic-inch V8. Good maintenance means this fires up readily. The
proper Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor inhales deeply, and the
newer dual exhaust gives this a sweet tune of a proper classic
cruiser. In fact, while the mileage is low we bet you can't resist
adding to the odometer thanks to easy driving features, like the
three-speed automatic transmission, Positraction rear end, power
steering, and power brakes w/discs up front.
The sale comes with a terrific paperwork file to tell this coupe's
unique tale. It includes the original window sticker, purchase
agreement, Protect-O-Plate warranty card, cam card, and maintenance
records. This is a classic that delivers on originality, features,
and style, so you know it's the rare survivor that goes right to
the top of your list. Call now!
