I got it for like $7. I know it's a bit expensive, but I rarely find old '60s Impala replicas that aren't lowriders. I don't know the scale for sure because it doesn't say on the bottom and it didn't come in a box. It's one of those toy cars that you pull back and it zooms off. The alignment is off, but whatever. Doors open and hood opens. It's got some details like a chrome shifter and door handles and windshild wipers and decals. The radiator seems to be in backwards (the fan shroud is in the space between the radiator and grille). The engine looks a bit small. Anyways, I had an urge to take some pics of it, so click the link below to see the rest of the pics. I've never taken many detailed shots of a miniature before and some of them came out pretty good. They're pretty big, so it'll take a while to load.

Ok, I guess it's a 1/43 then. I've been thinking it was a 1/32.

I've got a 1/24 new Impala Chicago Taxi, 1/18 Back to the Future Delorean hover-conversion, 1/25 new Crown Vic CHP cruiser, 1/25 '66 GTO, and 1/25 '58 Edsel.
