1967 Chevrolet Impala Ready for Daily Driving, Encounters Minor Challenge

The fourth-generation Chevrolet Impala debuted in 1965 to become a record-breaking nameplate. In its first year on the market, the new series sold more than 1 million units, becoming the first car to do so in the United States after WWII.

1966 brought several notable changes that led to a dramatic decrease in sales, including the graduation of the Caprice to a stand-alone series. Caprice debuted in 1965 as an Impala version but later embraced its path, selling separately and cannibalizing its parent series.

1967 brought little changes to the Impala, especially from an engine perspective. The new model was a carryover from the previous release, coming with the same engine recipe that included six-cylinder units and V8s. The base choice was the 250 straight-six, while the available V8 options included the famous 283, the more powerful 327, and the almighty 396 Turbo-Jet.


A 1967 Impala made its way to the WWW earlier this week specifically to look for a new home, as the car has been sitting for over two decades without moving a single inch.

The vehicle initially served as an occasional driver, and eBay seller millevoi says it was last inspected in 2000. The car has been sitting ever since, so it now comes in a project car condition, requiring a full restoration.

The engine under the hood is as mysterious as possible, though the good news is that it still cranks. The seller explains the mill has no spark, so theoretically, a good mechanic should be able to bring it back to a fully working shape if they know what to do.


The car is ready to become a daily driver, and despite the seller not sharing many specifics, anyone reading the listing between the lines can eventually decipher more information. For example, they claim the Impala could be driven home if the buyer resolves the engine problem, so theoretically, nothing is missing, and the vehicle still flexes in very good shape.

The car indeed looks complete, but it’s unclear if it still flexes the original engine. The mileage indicates 61,103 miles, suggesting the factory mill is still in the engine bay, but you’ll have to ask the seller for such information.

A 1967 Impala is an excellent choice for a daily driver, and this example is extremely close to becoming one with only minor fixes. Depending on how original it is today, it can also become a collectible, especially as all-original, complete, and unmolested Impalas are in high demand today.

The owner listed the Impala on eBay in a no-reserve auction, so the highest bidder will take it home when the battle ends in five days. The top offer currently exceeds $2,000, with 28 people already fighting to secure the Impala.
