An absolutely perfect specimen, as far as I am concerned! This Reader’s Ride is a 1969 Chevrolet Impala!!
According to 1969Chevy.com, Impala was the most popular of the 1969 Chevrolet full size models and second in rank only to Caprice, which was the “top of the line”. However Impala was by far more popular and sales for the “number 2″ model line drastically exceeded Caprice.
Impala had narrow trim extending from the front bumpers all the way to the rear, with a colored insert. They also had a narrow chrome strip that ran the entire length of the rocker panels. Impala came with chrome trim around the wheel well openings, as well as a single chrome ring on the inside of each of the 6 tail lights. In addition to this Impala had “Chevrolet” spelled out in individual letters across the front edge of the hood.
