The Chevrolet Impala is one of America’s most historic cars. It was seen as the standard for comfort and value for a long time. It had a lot of success as a large, luxurious sedan for families all over the world. Keeping your Impala in excellent condition doesn’t have to be difficult if you have the right manuals. We provide a Chevy Impala repair manual for each model.
The Chevy Impala first came out in 1958 and was originally introduced to be a high-end model of the Chevy Bel-Air. This model was only available in sport coupe or convertible. It differed dramatically from other Chevy’s because of its shorter greenhouse, longer rear deck, and lower setting on an X-type frame.
The 1959 model became completely separate from the Bel-Air and had a very radical, distinct design. To this day, the design is an iconic. It was longer and had a read bat-wing lid with “cat-eye” taillights. This model year also introduced the four-door hardtop and four-door sedan models.
1961 was a defining year for Chevrolet and the Impala, with the introduction of the Super Sport, or SS, which was considered to be the first American muscle car. It had a fancier design and was supposed to be the fastest car on the market. Unlike previous models, the bat-wing lid was much less dramatic.
The 1962 model had a much boxier look, catering to the modern family. It also had four large coil springs to absorb bumps and give users a smoother, quieter ride. It was also the first year the all-transistor deluxe push button radio option was offered.
The fourth generation Impala came out in 1964 and ran until 1970. It continued to see updates in its speed and design. The 1970 model featured a 250-horsepower Turbo-Fire V8 engine. The fifth generation, from 1971-1976, was the end of the era of the large sedan for Chevy.
The sixth generation was shorter, narrower and taller than the earlier versions. The seventh generation brought a much different look to the Impala, with its rounded exterior. The 8th and 9th generations continued to make minor improvements and modifications until the 10th generation, which is still in production today.
