Identify this station wagon

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me identify this station wagon.

My memory is that it may be a 1973 Chevy Impala, but in looking at other pictures on the internet, it doesn't seem to match up.

Thanks in advance!

Clamshell tailgates on full sized GM cars ran from 1971 to 1976.


The large side marker lamp puts it 1974 to 1976.


Caprice Estates had wood trim (might have been a delete option) and Impalas had no woodgrain decal (in the internet pictures, might have been an option to add them).


What makes it 1974 only?

And that ^^^ is why a nice clamshell wagon is hard to find.


I'd like to find another one. Olds Custom Cruiser 1st choice, then Caprice/Impala, then Buick or Pontiac.


I had a driver 76 CC in late 80s. I was trying to get out of a parking lot and a 75 Chrysler Town & Country wanted in. Let's just say there was a few minutes' standoff...😏 A Clash of the Simulated Woodgrain Titans if you will.

Second pic definitely a 69 Chevy. We had one in the exact same color when I was a kid (ours was a 4 door Impala sedan.)  As others have said, your pics show two different cars.
