RE: 1969 Impala SS427


There was another link to Corvette from the '67 Chevrolet SS427.

Remember the special fender flags/numbers?


Do the numbers look a bit familiar?


Here's my hood....


And another...


My apologies for hijacking this thread, but we don't get to talk about these cars much. wink

I have 1 of 31 built in Canada, a 2dr Caprice with factory 427. I bought a z24 hood for it.There was a guy on another site that located a triple black z24 car for sale but it was auto and not 4 speed. Interesting that there was no High horse 427 put out in any car but the Corvette for the 67 year. they have records that shows 12 motors were built but have no idea where they went. Check this site out for more info www.impala427.com/1967_engine.htm

I recieved a message from the vendor. This car is incredibly about a 5 minute drive from my place. There is little doubt we will see it. Anyway to post details about a 69. In reading the post so far I see that the car should not have Impala badging yet this one does, no special hood on this one either. Perhaps he has documentation that we can see to verify car.

Any chance St.Therese built 427 cars would have a different hood and have the emblems? Get some photos if you go see it!

Hi Ray,

As mentioned earlier, by '69 the Chevrolet SS427 was a ghost of itself (in terms of badging and special body features). There was no special hood (like '67 and '68).....no fender louvures (like '68)....no big SS427 emblems (like '67 and '68) just the SS emblem. In fact, since the Z-03 regular Super Sport was no longer available, I guess the Z-24 filled that void in its last year of production , By the end of the '69 model year run, those famous SS emblems were gone from the full-size car for many years to come.

ADDITIONAL INFO FOR RAY. In the absence of the Z-03 Super Sport, 1969 was the first year where they actually badged the Z-24 as an Impala, so the Impala badging on that car is correct.

While it's true that the L-72 was not a Regular Production Option (RPO) in 1967, it was certainly available and was installed in several cars. At least one '67 Chevrolet SS427 got a L-72. As I mentioned in another thread, I know the person who ordered it.....a now retired Senior Engineer with Corvette.

Those cars carried an additional badge.........


You just had to be in the know and get your salesman to use a Central Office Production Order (COPO). Sadly, most salesman had no idea what they were either. wink

From the 1967 Chevrolet Assembly Manual....

kind of surprising this one has been posted so long, he had it at fall Waterdown (september 2008) for sale and its been on/off kijiji since, a friend seen it and said the cosmetics were tired but thats to be expected-at the time he wanted 14,500 or 11,000 rolling-best to buy it running, drive it while you gather parts or even just leave that engine-the car is what it is.

Here's a very unusual '68 Chevrolet SS427, with the over-the-counter cowl induction on a L-72.



These pieces are very similar to the cowl induction used with the Z-28 2x4 stuff.

Don't believe this stuff was available? I bought the following piece (across the Chevrolet parts counter) for my '67 (after changing from 3x2 induction to a 850 dbl-ppr Holley) way back in 1968. wink



Yes, it has a Chevy part number. There was a host of special stuff available back in the day.

IMG_0027.jpgI remember seeing that cowl induction set up on a 68/69 Chevelle at Carlisle, Penn back in the early 90's. Wild set up! Supposed to have derived from Nascar (?). And Hey? What is wrong with the Green? Everyone has owned a "Snot Green" GM at one time or another...

Just to be certain fellas, the vendor told me the car will be sold without an engine. He says it can be driven now but the engine will be pulled if it sells.
So at the end of the day I suppose you would be buying a decent shell with a rare VIN.

Hi Ray,

This information leads me to the bizzare "numbers matching" phrase that's all the buzz these days. It started in the Corvette world, but the madness has spread. I'm seeing 4-door Studebaker Larks advertised as "numbers matching". wink

In the '69 SS427 ad, he says, "A true collector would probably want to find a date code correct motor anyway". Let's examine that statement. Even if a person could find a "correct" 427 block casting, the stamped codes on the front pad would be for another car. So, what to do then? Many people, in their search for the Holy Grail, then proceed to deck the block so they can stamp the "correct" VIN, etc. on the pad. And, that's assuming they can get stamps with the correct font and they can get the positioning and spacing right. But.......oh, oh.....now that they've decked the block, they've messed up the broach marks and it's obviously a restamp. So, now people are trying to get the correct broach marks when decking. rofl.gif

Numbers Matching is madness. Those of us who had these cars when they were new realize that the number of original Special High Performance big blocks still alive today would fit through the eye of a needle. These cars were purchased to beat on, and beat on them we did. The bottom end of those engines usually grenaded as the top end made too much power for the bottom end to handle. Just for the sake of argument though, let's suppose a person could "manufacturer" a "correct" block for this car. Does that make it an original "numbers matching" car? Really?

If the Little Old Lady From Pasadena had bought a BBC, rather than a Super Stock Dodge, even her car wouldn't be "original" numbers matching anymore..........so what does all that "numbers matching" stuff really mean????? It means, I want more money. rofl.gif

Besides, if people were aware of the number of clues to cloning of these cars there really were, they wouldn't try to phony one up for sale anyway.

I'm not against the cloning of cars, as long as that is clearly stated every time it is sold down the line. I wonder what the chances are of that? And, if "Clone" is clearly stated, they why would "matching numbers" matter anyway?????

biggrin

That's a nice Canadian-built example. $45,000 US is what, $50,000 CDN now?



Even the colour's nice. wink

More like $55,350. I had to buy $70,000 yesterday at $1.23, ya not for me at work!

As for numbers matching, I'm not sure the cars we drive everyday bought new are, plenty of parts have been changed as they break and need replacement. In fact I know my wife's Suburban is not and she's had it since day one, we put a rebulit transfer case in there, ditto for the beater Regal, it's got a junk yard transaxle. It truly boggles the mind how a 40 year old car, especially a muscle car can still have all the original parts...does anybody really believe this?

Hey Ray,

Apparently, most of the high-rollers at Barrett Jackson do.

My brothers was told his 67 was original but when the timing chain jumped you could see it was not and the water pump had been rebuilt

The ones that really drive me bonkers are the cars from the 60's with the original window stickers still in place.

Ahhhh....huh.

It's a joke that got started by the NCRS type crowd. The 1st person who asked me that question was a member of the Corvette Restorers, back in 1979. I had a 65 convertible for sale that I had changed the engine in that summer due to the original 327 being seized. I replaced it with a 350/300 hp and I sold the original engine to a drag racer who used it to build up and put in a gasser. The NCRS guy came to look at my 65 and proceeded to tell me it wasn't worth anything because it didn't have the original engine, but he would relieve me of my burden for $4000, when it was  priced at $6500. That's what started my contempt of those a**holes ever since.

Fascinating reading. I have seen this car in person and it is different in a good way.

Way back in the eighties there was a guy around my area who had a "67(?) Imapla SS with that special hood. I thought it was a 396 car though. Memory says it was from up Wasaga Beach area before the neighbour bought it. It was a dark green with a dark interior. Tinted glass and bucket seats/floor shift.
