Chevrolet Impala: A Diecast Retrospective

From 1957 to present day, Chevrolet has been producing their best-selling Impala automobiles. This line of full-size sedans has seen ten generations and countless small redesigns, but has remained at the forefront of popular and affordable large cars. Collectable Diecast has many Chevy Impalas available for any collector to add to their display, and to help you choose, here are highlights of a few from different points in history to take you on a retrospective journey of these incredible cars.

As part of the very first generation of Chevy Impalas, the 1958 Convertible was something special. Sculpted rear fenders and a trio of taillights on each side were included in the redesign for the rear, while the front received dual headlights. The overall body was laid out in an “X” form for greater stability and safety, making this model lower and larger than previous models. A powerful V8 engine produced up to 315 hp with optional Turbo-Thrust and Ramjet fuel injection.

As usual, MotorMax only produces models of the highest quality, and this 1958 Chevy Impala Convertible is no exception. Painted in bright red with chrome side detailing, this 1/18 scale vehicle shines. This striking replica is perfect as a focal piece for any classic car collection.

The fourth generation 1967 Chevy Impala SS had many new features and modifications that brought it to such high popularity. Standard front-disc brakes, power locks, and an 8-track stereo player were just a few of the interior modifications, while the exterior design was updated to include coke bottle styling and a hardtop fastback roof line. This iconic Sports Sedan could get up to 425 hp with a powerful Turbo Jet V8 engine offering. Upgraded door panels, carpeting, and cloth-and-vinyl upholstery were all part of the charm of this classic vehicle.

Jada Toys has recreated this recognizable 1967 Chevy Impala SS on a 1/24 scale. Painted in a gorgeous and shiny silver paint, this vehicle is an impressive replica that will stand out in any collection, bringing sophistication, class, and charm to your display.

The 2010 Chevy Impala, as part of the ninth generation of the Impala line, was largely sold as a fleet vehicle. With side-impact air bags and a 0 to 60 mph acceleration of 5.6 seconds, which was impressive for a 4-door sedan and non-sports car, it's no wonder it was chosen as the Miami Police Department's vehicle of choice that year. The 2010 Chevy Impala combined just the right amount of luxury and practicality.

This 1/64 scale replica by Jada Toys shows off all the best aesthetic features of the 2010 Chevy Impala Miami Police Department model. It comes complete with police lights and MPD emblem decals to add character to your collection.
