Like my topic says I'm from ky, I've got an original paint triple black 67 ss427 4 speed car that my family and I enjoy very much. It was sold new at Webb Chevrolet in bowling green. I have met the original owners and I have the window sticker and pop. I hope a can be a helpful addition to your forum.thanks
You may have no idea how lucky a find that is. It isn't a 1967 Impala SS it is a SS427 Impala. That hood is worth more than many cars on this board as the 427 SS is the rarest of the rare muscle cars made by GM. The only cars more rare are the COPO cars built as a special order not an RPO option that any could order anywhere in the US if they had the cash on hand.
Thanks for the compliments guys,I've had to explain to several people about it being different than a Impala ss and I believe technically is a Chevrolet ss427.the original owner ordered it with m20,3.73 posi,and metallic brake linings and opted for white wall tires instead of redlines,I have pics with original owners I will post when it was new and just a few months ago
That SS427 car had a separate chapter from the other Impala SS cars in a book about the Chevy SS (covered every model made with the SS offered as an RPO). The early and late SS cars that were only trim and decals differed greatly from the few SS cars where ordering an SS package bought you a car different from the rest of the heard. Those few cars that had big powerful motors and heavy duty everything else created the mystic that the other SS cars that were only decals and trim basked in.
I just have no respect for any SS package that includes a six cylinder as an engine option. I used to take six cylinder cars and created street terrors that were able to swallow a factory SS car and spit out the bones. Straight line or autocross I was building what one car mag calls G-machines thirty to forty years ago. Basically I built Corvettes out of Chevy's light weight cars because I couldn't fit in a Corvette and I really wanted one.
