My First Car Was A 1962 Chevy Impala!
My first car was a 1962 Chevy... quite a hot rod! I drove it until it had 200,000 miles on it! Dad and I overhauled it at about 120,000 miles!
It was a pleasure to drive! Fast! The 409 was a great engine! Tom Hale and I drove it to Louisiana right out of high school and did it fly! I can remember those Texas highways where we never slowed lower than 80 MPH for hours!
Considered to be Ã¢â‚¬Ëœthe best selling full-size car in the U.S.,' in 1962 the Chevy Impala was designed and built by the Chevrolet division of General Motors.
Originating as a sports coupe, the Impala began as a dream car for the 1956 General Motors Motorama.
The name Impala originated from a southern African antelope known for its speed and prowess. Introduced in 1958, the Impala was developed by chief engineer automotive executive for General Motors, Edward Cole.
