Supernatural TV Show Spikes Interest in Classic Impala

It’s hard to believe that the long-running American dark-fantasy TV show “Supernatural” is now in its 15th and final season. Though, it’s not really surprising that the show has grown a large fan base around the protagonists’ iconic 1967 Chevy Impala.

In the show, brothers Dean and Sam Winchester have the unique family business of traveling the country to fight paranormal monsters. Their black 1967 Chevrolet Impala is their trusty companion whom they dub “Baby.”

Per the show’s creator Eric Kripke, the inspiration for Baby came from the show Knight Rider, where the car KITT played a central role in the series. “I really wanted to introduce the Impala to bring back the idea that a car could be a main character, a trademark to the show,” he said. Kripke chose the ’67 Impala, a vehicle with intimidating looks and a big enough trunk to store a body. Interestingly enough, nine Impalas were used to achieve different camera angles and to capture shots of the Chevy in various states of wreckage.

The show’s success has enhanced the ‘67 Impala model’s popularity, which in turn, has increased its market value. When the show began in 2005, a 1967 Chevy Impala went for as low as $500. In October 2016, the car became the most searched for vehicle on ClassicCars.com, with over 50,000 searches. Currently, ‘67 Impalas range from $20,000 to $50,000. A brand-new 2019 Chevy Impala starts at $28,000.

Give a head-nod to the show’s 1967 Impala when you stop by Sharon Chevrolet to test-drive the current Impala model or these other popular Chevy sedans.
