  This is the first appearance of a car which was to be a staple of the Corgi range right through the next decade and beyond. It was a million plus seller in this livery alone. The '59 Chevy Impala is one of my favourite cars of all time too. This car appeared as a Police cruiser, a Fire Chief car, a taxi and a civilian saloon in this casting and then was re-made in a two-piece casting with a lot of vacuum plated plastic bright work and released in new versions of all four guises. Not content with that there came the two dog vans (Kennel Club & Chipperfields). They certainly got their moneys worth out of the old Impala.

The car is always black with no major variations affecting value. The early one-piece casting Police Impala was made from 1959 to 1965. Early cars have turned hubs and later cars have spun hubs.

This is a fine example of the early release in good, original and bright condition - I was seriously unhappy when I broke off the aerial....
