READER BARN FIND: 1967 Chevrolet Impala 396

From Dustin M – Wanted to show a true barn find I found in the country stuffed in an old shed just outside my hometown. What makes it special is that it was parked in the early 80”s with 40K miles on it. It was bought right here in my hometown Chevy dealership in ’67 from the original owner I bought it from. Although not an SS, it was ordered with a 396 big block. The interior is mint! Not even 1 rat turd!

The body had 2 small dents however the rest of the body is solid. Original enamel Turquoise paint. Numbers matching 396 V8, which over the summer I took out, rebuilt and put back in. While it was out I cleaned up the motor compartment. Original tranny hasn’t been touched.

I like the 70’s look of Crager wheels so I switched out originals for them. They are the only thing not original on the car. Thought this might be a good read for our Barn Finds Community to show that barn finds like this are still out there waiting to be found.

Our thanks to Dustin for sharing his find with us. We always enjoy seeing the stuff that our readers are finding, so if you’ve come across a sweet barn find, be sure to send us photos and the story. You can send them to us at mail@barnfinds.com!

    I am glad there were wasn’t one rat 🐀 dropping as in write up (although I FIND it had to believe ) as farms have mice and they get in and make a mess and nest with seat foam and stuffing etc.
    Parents had retired on 140 acres and they squeezed in new cars, houses etc from time to time 😟
    This was left dormant for years ..maybe they were sophisticated mice 🐁😜and used the outside facilities..

    Very nice! Dustin should look into joining the VCCA. They have a judged class for unrestored cars and this one is a great candidate.

    I had a ‘67 in high school. First car. Just a 283 but had the same paint and interior color as this one. I really loved that car ! Interested in selling ??

    Love it, you’re a lucky fellow. Love the color too. IIRC that’s Emerald Turquois, which happens to be the same color as the 67 Malibu I bought new.
    Loved both the Impala’s and the Malibu’s.

    Restores my enthusiasm about finding a great old car that’s been set up for a long time waiting to be returned to appreciation. Good for you on a great find! ’67 and the ’68 full size Chevy’s we’re great designs, bonus on an original 396!

    I have found 2 of these ’67 2 door fastback SS cars here in Mexico.

    Both have hydraulics.

    I am wondering what it would take to put the stock suspension back on them.

    It is hard to find a 2 door anything here so I might haver to get at least one of them as I love the ’67 Chevys. The huge instruments are great for my aging eyes.

    Shweet. Would make a choice lowrider.
