1962 Chevrolet Impala Series

The Impala's Super Sport option debuted in 1961, and it continued into 1962 with the sports-car assist bar, aluminum side-molding insert and SS identification. The big-block 409 CI V-8 was also introduced in 1961, and continued for 1962, with either single or two 4-barrel induction. With the dual Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetors, aluminum intake and solid lifters, the 409 produced the magic one horsepower per cubic-inch. Essentially, the 409 was a bored-out 348, which debuted in Chevrolet's big-body cars in 1958. However, the two engines shared few interchangeable parts, with the 409 requiring a new crankshaft, larger bearings, shorter connecting rods and forged-aluminum pistons. Chevrolet described the 1962 Impala as 'a rare combination of qualities' with 'a new look of richness.' Each Impala model had its own roofline, including the Sport Coupe with 'exclusive convertible-contoured' hardtop.

The Impala was Chevrolet's top model line in 1962 and was available as a sedan, 4-door hardtop Sport Sedan, 2-door hardtop Sport Coupe, convertible, and a 6- or 9-passenger station wagon. They were well equipped with a long list of standard features including aluminum front seat end panels, bright metal backed rearview mirror, built-in door safety panel reflectors, rear seat radio grille, and sport-type steering wheel with Impala center emblem. Other features included an electric clock located in the instrument panel, parking brake warning light, glove compartment light, and bright metal valance panels.

All models except the convertible had a simulated rear window vent located below the glass. There was bodyside trim consisting of a full-length upper molding with color-keyed insert, and stainless steel window reveals. The Impala script badge could be found on the rear fenders.
