In 1961, the Chevrolet introduced the Impala SS or Super Sport to the market. The new SS badging would soon become Chevrolet’s signature of performance on many of its most popular models. In 1965, Chevrolet had redesigned the Impala and the new, fourth generation designs were used with minimal updating through 1970. Chevrolet supplied the Impalas with a variety of engine options that ranged from a six-cylinder to the powerful big block V-8s.
For the 1967 model year, the standard Impala Series was supplied in six body styles while the Impala Super Sport Series consisted of only two body styles: a two-door hardtop, coupe as well as a sporty, convertible. Approximately 67,000 SS coupes were built while only 9,545 SS convertibles were built. The 1967 Impala SS Convertibles had a factory base price of approximately 3,600.00.
This 1967 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport convertible was built and sold new in St. Louis. It was purchased by the current owner from the original owner in about 1983. It today’s marketplace, it is difficult to find a desirable, 1960s era convertible that has had only two owners from new and has resided in the same city for all of its life. This car is being sold with a Missouri title with a matching VIN number of 168677S161633, which indicates that it is a true Super Sport and built in February of 1967. The mileage is just under 99,000 from new.
As expected from a two-owner car, this Super Sport Impala Convertible is in excellent, overall condition. The current and second owner has restored this vehicle as needed during his 34 years of ownership. Today, this car is ready to use and enjoy.
The body appears to be extremely clean and straight. All of the bodylines are crisp and clear. The doors, hood and trunk lid fit the body with even gaps and margins. The body panels look straight from front to rear, top to bottom. The car has been recently repainted in the original color of Bolero Red. The paint is in excellent overall condition with an even and consistent gloss across all of the body panels.
On the inside, the Parchment White interior is mostly original and shows extremely well. The seats are firm and the upholstery is clean but not perfect.
