The '67 Impala was produced in several variations: four-door sedans, wagons and hardtops, two-door hardtops, coupes and open top models. Two-door coupes and hardtops were the most popular, while four-door models were used more as a family car.

After careful sculpting, the Impala 67 becomes the owner of a body with slightly smoothed sidewalls, headlights recessed into the grille and large direction indicators on the sides of them.
The appearance of the car turned out to be quite harmonious and aggressive. In place of the round rear lights came three-section, horizontal, wide, with pointed edges counterparts.

The fuel tank held 90 liters of gasoline, but this amount did not last long. The average American appetite is about 26 liters per 100 km.
It is the Chevy Impala 67 years old, as the most famous of all representatives of this brand, that becomes the heroine of many American films in which it is the vehicle of bandits and gangsters.
