1969 Impala Parts

1969 Impala Parts

The 1969 Impala was Chevy’s first fully modern look car. They had finally gotten the knack of what it took to make a successful model, and they knew it. The new Impala was a culmination of everything that the brand had learned over the past twenty years, and it showed. It featured one of the most advanced V8 engines in production at the time, an all-new body style with a signature roofline, a more refined interior and more functional accessories than any other full-size car on the market at the time. It also marked Chevy’s first foray into high-end personal luxury cars for American consumers. All of these factors made for quite an impressive capsule of American automobile manufacturing in 1969.

What is a Stock 1969 Impala?

A stock 1969 Impala came with the most common engine and trim combination. This combined offering was called the base Classic line. The Classic included a healthy group of standard and available features, including power windows, power door locks, a column-shifted manual transmission and a relatively basic but functional interior with vinyl seats. If you wanted a station wagon, you had to opt for the low-line Impala Custom series, which was missing certain features like a stereo and rear defogger.

The 1969 Chevy Impala History

The Chevy Impala’s roots trace back to the mid-1930s, and it was the first series production all-new American car in the postwar era. The Impala was named after a Native American tribe, which was an odd choice for a car that was named after the antelope. The first Impala model hit showrooms in 1948, and it was an immediate success. It was mainly sold as a closed car with a sedan or station wagon body style, but it also made its way into the pickup truck market from 1952 through 1956. Over the years, the Impala was redesigned a few times to keep up with changing automotive tastes. For example, it was given a new look for the 1957 model year, and it was also given a new engine for the 1958 model year. The Impala was discontinued after the 1969 model year, but it made its way back on the market as a rebadged version of the Pontiac Bonneville.

Major Changes for the '69 Impala

The Impala was one of the last American full-size cars to sport the classic B-body style, but that would soon change. The 1968 model year saw the introduction of the odd-numbered 1969 body styles that would soon become the standard for American full-size cars. The most notable redesign to the Impala was the addition of the sleek new 300-cid V8 engine that would soon become the standard for American full-size cars. The rest of the Impala was fairly unchanged for the 1969 model year, but this did not stop Chevrolet from adding a host of new features to enhance the Impala’s luxury-sedan package. New options included air conditioning, a tilt steering wheel and a remote-controlled rear defogger. The Impala gained a new option for the 1969 model year as well. The Custom could now be equipped with a vinyl roof, which was now the only way to get the hardtop Impala.

Technical specifications for the 1969 Impala

The 1969 Chevrolet Impala was available in three body styles - a four-door sedan, a two-door hardtop and a four-door station wagon. The Impala was powered by a 300-cubic-inch overhead-cam V8 engine that came standard with three main exhaust manifolds. This engine was a carryover from the 1968 model year and had minor changes for the 1969 model year, which included a more efficient carburetor. The Impala could hit 60 mph from a standstill in approximately 9 seconds and had a top speed of approximately 130 mph. The Impala had a curb weight of approximately 5100 pounds, which was heavy for the times but light for a large American sedan. The Impala came standard with power brakes, power steering and a column-shift manual transmission. The Impala could also be equipped with a Turbo Hydra-matic transmission that made driving with power much easier. The Impala was also one of the first cars to be outfitted with a safety device that would prevent it from accelerating if the driver hit the brakes. The 1969 model year Impala also had the new-for-1969 300-cubic-inch overhead-cam V8 engine. The engine made 180 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 215 foot-pounds of torque at 4800 rpm.
