    Matt – The 2006 edition of the Encyclopedia of American Cars published by Publications International LTD. is 864 pages of production numbers and info on every Amercan car made from 1930-2006. I believe 2006 is the most recent edition. Check on Amzon or other used book seller.

    The 1,074,925 figure was for Impala’s. If Chevrolet was “clinging” to the notion of the full size Chevy being “The Chevrolet” the total would have been 1,463,214. There were 124,100 Bel Air’s sold and 145,300 Biscaynes sold. (Source – Almanac of American Cars)

      Hi Dan,
      Thanks very much for these precisions. Do you happen to have sales figures for more years over the period? I have been desperately looking for them for ages but can’t seem to find anything online?
      Thank you very much in advance for your response.
      Best,
      Matt

    Is the 1,074,925 figure for Impalas alone or all fullsize Chevys? They were still clinging to the notion of the full-size Chevy being “The Chevrolet” and using several different nameplates for what are nothing more than different trim levels of the same car.
