Bought the car two years ago (in 2010). Since then the car has been painted, glass replaced, new seats, new tires and pretty much everything else is new.
The 1961 Chevy Impala was the first of the third generation which included the 61, the 62, the 63 and the 64.
The first generation only had one model, the 58 Chevy Impala and the second generation had two, the 59 and the 60. The Impala was lower, wider and longer than its Chevy predecessors. One of the main attractive features of the Chevy Impala was the sharp looking tail fins. Another feature that became the hallmark of the Impala was the six taillights introduced with the 1960 model replacing the somewhat controversial large teardrop taillights of the 1959 model.
Fourth generation started with the 1965 Chevrolet Impala which was totally redesigned. This model sold more than 1 million in the US making it a sales record that surpassed any previous records and has not been surpassed by this or any other make or model to this day.
Production was discontinued with the 1985 Impala, the last model year of the sixth generation. However, production resumed with the seventh generation starting with the 1994 model based on the concept car introduced at the 1992 Detroit Auto Show. This was a totally redesigned Impala that didn’t resemble its predecessor in any way.
The seventh generation ended with the 1996 model year. Due to slumping sales, General Motors decided to discontinue the entire B-body line in favor of the more profitable SUVs.
But this was not the end of the Impala. Production resumed in 1999 at the Oshawa Car Assembly Plant in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. The first model of the eighth generation was the 2000 Chevrolet Impala and the last was the 2005 model. The ninth generation is the current generation which started with the 2006 model and is expected to end with the 2013 model year. An update is expected for the 2014 model year which will begin the tenth generation.
