I think it's a 1967 Chevrolet Impala.

 

 

... not sure, i think the ears were different on the 1967 model.

If we could see a close up the nose...

early models had the closed nostril, on later models they were flared.

Can't you go back and get a photo of the information plate on the compound?😃

 

Looks like an impala.

The one on the left looks like a lesser spotted street urchin in tribal colours.🙄

Female impalas seem to have counter shading that's not white and skinnier necks.  Also, more pattern in the faces.  This is one where seeing the males would be the better ID key.
