1972 Chevrolet Impala Overview

The 1972 Impala was the last year a convertible trim was available, and only 6,456 of these were produced. The base engine remained a 250-ci V6 rated at 145 horsepower, but a 400-ci V8 rated at 170 horsepower was available.

The car was not touted as a racing vehicle, but as a smooth-riding family car. There were a few problems with these cars, including "Badge of Excellence" a crack that appeared so routinely in 1972 (and other early-70s) Impalas that owners joked they should have been noted in the spec sheets.

Ample parts are available for 1972 Impalas, and they remain popular restoration and tuning projects.
