This is the 1967 Chevy Impala (4 door) from the CW show "Supernatural"
The car belongs to Dean and Sam Winchester played by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki...the fans have nicknamed it Metallicar
"Apparently each car has a different name. The original is called "Hunter." The newest one is called "The Civilian." There are 5 cars in all."
(April 08) From another fan report:
"Hunter" is the original picture car, who has now been retired due to high mileage but they have no plans to part it out.
"Hero" is the current stunt car, who has full protective skid plates underneath and had double brakes (stomp brakes) that control the front and rear brakes seperately and allowed them to do the 180o spin in the episode Croatoan. It's also the car that Sam and Dean work on at the end of Fresh Blood
"Civilian" is the current picture car.
Also due to a director's decision, the spotlights were all ordered to be removed. *wipes tear*
From the 2007 San Diego Comic Con: Jensen was asked by a fan what kind of engines they had in the Impalas (they have at least 5 or 6 that they use for different types of shots) He said...
"We have a 427 in one I know, that's the biggest one we've got, that's the stunt one, we've got some hydraulic brakes, we've got skid plates on that one, we've got some stabilizing bars underneath it, and then we have a few others that are just kinda picture cars, that you know, run, but none of them feel as good as that one."
