You will want to look at the engine code to see what you have. If it's a 6-Cylinger the engine code is stamped on a pad behind the distributor on right side of block and if it's an 8-Cylinder, it's stamped on the block in front of the right hand cylinder head.

This car had a V8 engine, but do not know which model, if it was 327, 396 or 427, this and my doubts, because I try to make this engine original. The chassis number could not identify what was the right engine.

It depends. Does your car have a two bbl. carburetor or four bbl? From 1961-68 General Mtrs and Canada
chevys with a two bbl. In 1967-68 General Mtrs and Canada produced Hi-performance 327" engines, and 350" engines with four bbls. If you look on center section of carburetor there should be a stamped number, possibly a metal tag on carbs lid. What is that number? You have an excellent chevrolet , and if well maintained, will probably outlive all of us. Even if it's Mfg in Canada if will still be an American Chevy.

I for one have the original carburetor luck, the second a friend of my late father, the carburetor has been saved in your officiating for many years, it is a Jet Rochester 2 manufactured in USA. So there is a number written underneath the carburetor - 7031714, no other numbers in your body. I am sending pictures of the carburetor. You can see the pictures of the car and comment on the state of conservation since I was with my father, until the present day cebalzer.blogspot.com blog.
I appreciate the attention and collaboration of all who are helping to preserve the memory of this wonderful car.

Could not find your carb # listed in my book, However I'm pretty sure that would be a 327 2 barrel engine. In 67 you could buy an Impala with any engine. Big Blocks all came with 4 barrel carbs and you could also get the 327 with a 4 barrel. I had a 68 in high school that came with a 327 275 HP engine. Hope that helps you.
sources: HOLLEY II carb book, series 64, old as dirt, has just about every carb made listed, factory part numbers, interchange etc.
