Hooniverse Fastback Friday – A Golden 1967 Chevrolet Impala with only 6,900 Miles


Welcome back to Hooniverse Fasstback Friday. After last weeks feature on what you thought was a fastback, I spotted this gem on Auto Trader Classics from the Connors Motor Company in West Chester, PA. The body style is a fastback in my opinion, with the rear deck lid that tapers from the rear window to the back end of the car gradually. And look, it only has 6,900 miles on it….


This car has everything that makes most of us here salivate (well, maybe its just me, but whatever…) including a hardtop body style, small and easily maintainable V-8, a Powerglide Transmission, a glorious bench seat (in Brocade cloth no less), vent windows, and more. According to the listing:

The lowest mileage 67 Impala on the planet, this survivor is completely original and has only 6,000 original miles, gorgeous Grenada gold and Capri Cream two-tone paint, perfect Gold brocade cloth interior, brilliant chrome and trim, ultra -smooth 283 cu in V8, automatic, Power steering, Power brakes, AM radio with rear speaker and rear mounted antenna, wire wheel covers, Protecto-plate and Build Sheet, the cigarette lighter and ash tray have never been used, in dry storage her entire life she still rides on the original tires, this car cannot be replaced at any price and she runs, drives, and looks new!


The asking price for this low mileage honey is $28,500, which is quite reasonable compared with what comparable Chevelles, Novas, and other GM intermediates go for. So, does this Fastback Chevrolet do anything for you? See the listing here.

    Damn, that is clean, and a true fastback. I like it, but blah blah low miles cars, blah blah museum blah blah.
    I am glad you are back to a regular schedule Jim.

    Too undriven and too plain, plus a 283 and Powerslush won't be much of a party either. You should be able to find a nice 327 or 396 Impala SS coupe in this price range.

      Hey, it's got a *clock*. As Chevys go, that's loaded. I do like the brocade, which helps since it doesn't have A/C (your sweaty shirt won't stick to the seat).

        My grandpa had one…. 2door fastback with a 283 and 3 on-a-tree, no PS , PB or air with blackwalls and dog dish hubcaps. He ordered it NEW that way!

      Does it really matter that it hasn't been driven if, judging from the underhood photo, the owner has replaced every wear part and renewed the engine already? Assuming he's done the same under the car, it should be good to go.
      But it is a pity that respect for its low mileage led the owner to keep the regrettable drivetrain and even follow that cheesy auction house saw about still riding on the original tires. I guess it's just a trailer queen now. You're dead right about finding a 396 instead.

    Ugh, Powerglides only belong in drag racers, in my ever so humble opinion. I'd have a 700r4 in there before I got it home. That said, $28,500 for a lightly used full-size Chevy doesn't sound so bad (and yes I'm totally ignoring the issues of sitting too much.)

      Power Glides work excellent on short track ovals too

    I have to say these late 60's 2dr Impalas do nothing for me I actually think the 4dr variants look better

      Agreed, the fastback makes that huge rear overhang look even longer, sedans look more balanced.

    It's certainly a nice, clean example but I'm sure the soft bits need a look or two, unless the owner has already done that work.

    First order of business…true duals with glasspacks, next…a posi unit(if it doesn't already have one), third…incinerate the rear tires until bald, switch with fronts, and repeat. Last…replace stock wheels and tires with something a little more "cocky" (preferably something in the line of a Cragar S/S with a white letter tire).
    I have no use for a showpiece. Not saying that your ride should not look good, but cars are meant to be used, and if necessary, redone in order to be used again. I can guarantee that if I were to buy this car, it would have at least 300 more miles on it within the first couple of days, and probably over 10,000 by the end of the summer.
