'62 Golden Anniversary Impala SS
Is there a code on the trim tag, or something in the VIN to denote a Golden Anniversary '62 SS? Were these particular cars the only ones to get the trim tag code 927 "Anniversary Gold" paint...or was this color also available on other '62 Impalas also?
Was the trim tag code 891 (yellow/gold vinyl buckets) the only color offered for the interior of these cars?
Were they only offered as highly optioned, ie A/C, power windows, power brakes/steering, etc....?
Was there only one each offered to dealers (resulting in only about 300 being built)?
I have no idea what was going on in 1912 because the first Chevrolet car rolled of the assembly line in November 3, 1911 (made in Detroit, MI since they didn't have sixty four assembly plants scattered around the country back then). There might have been 300 dealers back in 1912, as Ferman was already selling Oldsmobile cars in Tamapa, FL when they got one of the first Chevy to offer to their customers. In 1962 there was a dealership in every city in the country (Tampa had six Chevy dealerships in 1962 because there were no import cars other than Mercedes-Benz, VW, and Jaguar, possibly Rolls Royceback then. (There was a Rolls dealership in Clearwater, FL in 1962).
I hate misleading information on the internet. To answer your questions correctly, the 927 paint code didn't enter the salesman's catalogs until late September, although a few cars were built at Tarrytown in early September. Prior to January '62, the 927 paint code was available only on Sport Coupes and convertibles. After January, it was offered on all Impala models. The gold interior was the only color available with the 927 gold exterior, but the gold interior was also available with Tuxedo Black, Corona Cream & White exterior colors.
No options were required or typical on the 927 cars. They could be plain jane 6cyl cars or highly optioned Super Sport convertibles. Buyer's choice.
Any number of 1962 927 Impalas could have been ordered from each dealer. 1963 was the year that the Anniversary Gold cars were offered to each dealer (over 6800 at the time) and the 927 paint code was never listed in the dealer's catalogs for any customer to order one. They were only produced for a little over 2 months to serve as center pieces for dealer sales campaigns to celebrate the 50 Millionth Chevy built in June of '63.
