1963 Chevrolet Impala

General Overview

The 1963 Impala is the most popular for collectors, although almost identical mechanically to the previous year, and featured new lines.

It sported pointier front and rear fenders that emphasize the long, low, sleek designs of popular 60s cars.

The sport sedan featured a new, creased roof line that proved popular. A new “coved” instrument panel was sleeker with the replacement of the temperature gauge with ‘idiot lights’ for hot and cold engine conditions.

The SS package continued to increase in sales as the muscle car craze began to develop.

Engine choices remained fairly similar to ’62, and production was up yet again at 832,600.
