In 1961/62 Chevy made a drastic styling change to their full-size Impala car line. It marked the end of the wild fins era. The ’62 Hardtop featured the new “convertible roof” design. In addition, while racing by the factories was politically incorrect, the ’62 Impala offered the powerful 409 cubic inch V-8 engine and was used by drag racers. Starting in 1958, this full-size Impala continues to be one of Chevy’s top-selling line of cars. The ’62 model was part of the third generation of Impalas. It featured more conservative styling than previous Impalas. There were 5 different engines to choose from starting with the 230 c.i. 6 cylinders up to the powerful 409 c.i. V-8.
