The third generation Chevrolet Impala displayed a toned-down styling from the outrageous fins of its predecessors, but it's still a handsome car. Body styles into the mid-60s included 2 and 4-door hardtops, a 2-door coupe, 4-door sedan and wagon, and a 2-door convertible. The station wagon took the place of the Nomad at the top of Chevrolet's station wagon offerings. Engine options in this era included the base 235 cubic inch inline 6-cylinder engine, 283 and 327 cubic inch small block V8 engines in various trims, and a new 409 cubic inch big block option at 340 horsepower. Transmission options included 2-speed Powerglide automatic or a manual gearbox. While not as distinctive as the 1958-1961 Impalas, this generation of Chevy's top of the line full size car remains a popular and affordable car for domestic fans. With over 1 million Impalas produced in 1964 alone, these cars aren't ever going to be rare. Seek out any SS (Super Sport) trim package, especially with the big block 409 (if you can find one) or a 290-horse 327.
