1962 Chevrolet Impala
Car for sale by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan 49512
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
The Impalas SuperSport option debuted in 1961, and it continued into 1962 with the sports-car assist bar, aluminum side-molding insert, and SS identification. The big-block 409 CI V-8 was also introduced in 1961, and continued for 1962, with either single or two 4-barrel induction. With the dual Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetors, aluminum intake, and solid lifters, the 409 produced the magic one horsepower per cubic inch. Essentially, the 409 was a bored-out 348, which debuted in Chevrolets big-body cars in 1958. However, the two engines shared few interchangeable parts, with the 409 requiring a new crankshaft, larger bearings, shorter connecting rods, and forged-aluminum pistons. Chevrolet described the 1962 Impala as a rare combination of qualities with a new look of richness. Each Impala model had its own roofline, including the Sport Coupe with an exclusive convertible-contoured hardtop.
