From 1958 until 1965, the Impala was Chevrolet's most expensive full-size car. In 1965, Chevrolet introduced the more-expensiveCaprice. In the late sixties, the Impala was typically positioned justbelow the topluxury trim, the Caprice, and above the more economical modelslike the Biscayneor theBelAir. The Impala, named for a southern African antelope, is most readily distinguished by having three pairs of taillights, where most contemporary cars have two. It competed in the market against other full-size cars such as the FordGalaxie 500and thePlymouth Fury. The
