The Chevrolet Impala is a sedan based automobile developed and built by the Chevrolet car division of General Motors. Ed Cole, Chevrolet’s chief engineer in the late 1950s, defined the Impala as a “prestige car within the reach of the average American citizen.”
In a country that worships its automobiles, being the favorite brand is a high honor. Since it was first introduced in 1958, Impala has become more than just a car… its unique combination of style, performance and value made it an off-the-charts favorite for millions of Americans. In fact, with sales in excess of 13 million from 1958 to 1996, more American households chose Impala as their car than any other full-size car in the history of the automobile.
The Impala was introduced in 1958 as a new up-level, sporty trim package created for Bel Air coupes and convertibles. Unique to the model were its six taillights, a classic styling cue that became its trademark. It was named for a southern African antelope.
