With nine models based on the original Chevrolet Impala this has to be one of the most familiar shapes. There are two taxis, two police cars, two fire service cars and two saloons, one each of the original type and of the chromed second type. The introduction of the second type was quite late and far fewer appear to be in circulation, making the type 2s a bit more difficult to track down now. The cab above, in fact, is very late, having the fluted cast wheels.

Type 2 Fire service car is to follow.

Strange colours were chosen for the saloons!

The ninth model is an 'extended estate;' so not really in the series and was the Kennel Service Wagon that had a model doggy too and various features specific to the trade.
