Everybody Should Own One At Least Once Once — Really Great Car!!! Lots Of Power Fun To Drive. Parts cost alot to restore it. I found it on a farm in VA in a old barn. Tried to buy it for years and the farmer finally sold it to me.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Miss This Car A Lot — This car was a head turner. Sleek and sexy, Plenty of power, rides nice and smooth, and never let me down. With a 2 spped powerglyde transmission, and a 327 Turbo Jet, this car was hard to keep your foot out of it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

It Is A Awesome Majestic Car That When You Match Up The Nubers And When You Put A 302 Big Block In. — This is a american muscle car that some people would pay tremendous amounts of money for but what really gets me is the performance even when my dad and I first bought it it was driveable and that saying a lot considering nobody had drove it in 25 years.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

!966 Impala Super Sport Convertible — My 1966 Impala convertible is also an SS model. The factory 327-275 hp engine has been rebuilt to 1966 Corvette engine specifications. The powerplant includes the addition of new 10.25:1 pistons etc, Comp cam, bee hive valve springs and roller tip rocker arms, a 625cfm Holley carb, headers and dual exhaust bring this beast to cruising speed nicely. It has a black bucket seat interior with only a tachometer added tastefully to the stock interior. It is a blast to drive and we get the thumbs up from many admirers at cruise nights or just cruisin to the local burger or icecream place. I luv it!

A Real Head Turner!!! — Second owner, and had this car for over 35 years. Wins lots of trophies at the shows here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Has been choosen as the front cover of Impala News, USA. I truly look forward to a nice summer day when we cruise with family and friends. Chrome, chrome, chrome will make one stand back when admiring the goods under the hood. This car is a joy to ride and indeed a honour to own. The red body and white boot attract alot of attention, especially, July 1st, Canada Day. Nothing beats a 1966 Chevy Impala Convertible. Top This, licence plate says it all.

Owner for 36 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:1,500

I'd Do It Again If I Had An Extra Million Dollars Laying Around. By Russell

My Uncle's Impala By Krista

Well, the car belongs to my uncle, but in 1958 I don't think they were as interested in "handling" so much as going fast and looking good at it. This car is all original, rides like a dream, and made... Read More

Slow and bad handling. The worst styling of the era which earned it the lowest selling price. Drum brakes all around that were good for one hard stop. A challenge when it was time for the yearly inspe... Read More

It Was My All-time Favorite Car (and I Have Had Over 30). By Statguy

Styling -- 5 stars -- especially the Impala coupe. Performance was fine, not outstanding. I had 283 V8, not a 348, so that's what one would expect. If you want a car that will turn heads and contin... Read More
