1967 Chevrolet Impala

This beautiful, and extremely rare 2 owner, Fully Documented 1967 Chevrolet SS427 Fastback came with only one engine, and that was the ground pounding, heart stopping, L-36. This 427ci. engine has 385hp which is passed along to the Turbo Hydromatic transmission and makes this car get up and go. There were only 2,124 SS427s made, and a mere 200 with the RPO D-96 accent stripes on the side.
This SS427 is painted Butternut Yellow, with a Parchment vinyl interior and a Black vinyl top. It has a domed hood with 3 simulated air intakes, Strato-bucket seats, front disc brakes, power steering, Z24 Super Sport Package. This package included the 427ci. engine, the domed hood, heavy duty suspension, front stabilizer bar, and SS427 emblems in several locations. Chevy intentionally left off the Impala emblems to emphasis the SS427.

With all the relatively solid big Detroit cars from the 1960s getting eaten by The Crusher in these days of $4/gallon gasoline and $250/ton scrap steel prices, how does a rough survivor like this sedan manage to stay out of the Chinese steel foundries?

The probable answer: because it keeps running!
