“This is as close as you can get to going back in time and owning a brand-new 1966 L72 Impala.”— Encyclopedia of Muscle Cars author Jim Campisano
Chevrolet introduced an incredible muscle machine to dealers in 1966—the 427ci/425hp Impala Sport Coupe. It hit the streets two years after the birth of the muscle-car era—a time of high performance, high compression and no emissions controls.
Only 1,858 B-body Chevys received the legendary L72 427ci/425hp big-block engine in 1966. Today, the few L72 1966 Impala Sport Coupes that remain are a throwback to the days when the phrase, “There’s no replacement for displacement,” was the solemn rule of the street.
