If you want to command respect on the road, then this bruiser of a Bow Tie should fit the bill nicely. Located in Saint Rose, Louisiana and listed for sale on eBay, what we have here is a 1967 Chevrolet Impala SS427 finished in a rare and sinister-looking triple-black. This particular model stands out for its desirability and performance roots, as explained in the seller’s description:
“1967 Chevrolet “Impala” SS 427. I used quotes because a real (rare) SS427 was not actually sold as an Impala, but as its own model, the SS427 (RPO Z24) as opposed to an Impala SS which could be bought with a 427. There were only 2,147 SS427 models built in ’67 so you can imagine how rare it is to find one that’s triple black as well.”
The history behind this particular Chevrolet Impala SS427 starts with a “young doctor” from Kentucky, who used the car for drag racing on the weekends. Originally, the car was fitted with the 385-horsepower L36 427 V8 and a four-speed manual transmission and 3.73 Posi rear end.
Unfortunately, the original owner blew the engine charging down the 1320, so he had a replacement block installed at the original dealership where he purchased the car. Later, he also installed a new, more street-worthy rear end, and gave the car to his wife.
Looking over the pictures, we see an original rust-free body with most of its paint intact, as well as a well-maintained cabin space. There’s also a set of Crager S/S wheels in the corners, while the original, unused hubcaps are in the trunk.
According to the seller, nearly all the parts are original, other than the replacement block and transmission. The odometer reads 115,000 miles.
So while this 1967 Chevrolet Impala SS427 isn’t a numbers-matching car, it’s still a very nice find.
“Easily one of the rarest cars of its era and one of the most sought-after,” writes the seller. “Add in the super rare triple black, and ‘well desirable’ just does not cut it.”
As of this writing, the car’s current bid sits at $37,100 with about 20 hours left to go and 49 bids offered, with 377 bidders watching. The reserve has not yet been met.
