1967 Chevrolet Impala Sport Sedan Supernatural TV Series by Greenlight


This Greenlight diecast model in 1/43 scale is a must-have for Supernatural fans. This diecast model replicates the beautiful 1967 Chevrolet Impala SS seen in the series. This model’s exterior is painted with a glossy black finish. Its rims, lights and even the grille are consistent with the actual Impala model. As a matter of fact, the details of its interior are also the same.
Supernatural is an American fantasy horror television series created by Eric Kripke. It was first broadcast on September 13, 2005, on The WB, and subsequently became part of successor The CW’s lineup. Starring Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester and Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, the series follows the two brothers as they hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings in the world. The series is produced by Warner Bros.
Throughout the series, Dean drives a black 1967 Chevrolet Impala which he refers to as “Baby.” Having been passed down to him by his father (John), it is Dean’s most prized possession, with actor Jensen Ackles feeling it is Dean’s “life” and “sanctuary”. The brothers travel in it throughout the country as they hunt the supernatural, and the trunk holds various weaponry and their fake IDs. In the first two seasons, it has a Kansas license plate with the number KAZ 2Y5, a reference to the Winchesters’ home state of Kansas, and the series premiere date of 2005. Towards the end of the second season, the car sports a new Ohio license plate (CNK 80Q3) to aid the brothers in hiding from the FBI.
All of the cars used in the show are stock 1967 Chevrolet Impala four door hardtops. They feature Chevrolet small-block engines, recolored interiors, custom seats, and nonfunctioning radios. Other than the one used in the original, all of the Impalas had to be painted black for the series. One of the Impalas used features a detachable roof and doors for up-close shots, and is capable of being separated in half.
