The only series of Impalas that has fewer members on this board than the 1971-'76 cars are the 1977-'90 Impala owners. They are out there but I don't don't see a lot of activity from them as far as posts go. The vast majority of members on this board own early sixties Impalas; with most owning cars being made between 1962 and 1968.

For some strange reason that is what the reproduction industry is just starting to pay attention to as the number of requests from those needing parts have started to attract their attention.

The 1994-'96 Impala SS cars have their own boards and they rarely drop in here. Even though the 1991-'96 model run was the last gasp for rear wheel drive cars thanks to CAFE restrictions. All cars made from 1977-'96 shared the same suspension and only the sheet metal parts where changed as this series of Impalas saw the last of the original SBC motors, and the introduction of the SBC II motor and the new LS-x series of motors. It also was the series of cars that saw the return to power numbers last seen in the late sixties as computers were finally used to make power instead of just lower emissions.

I believe I have a set of those hubcaps that are on that black car. Let me know if you want me to look for them.

I'd believe it. The derby guys kinda dried up the resources over the years.
Yea I ran into a few Derby guys that showed me pics that almost made me cry lol. Some nice @ss 2drs bit the dust over the years :mad: but its all the more rewarding when u restore one and pull up to a show and people flock to it:) I kinda like not being able to order my whole car out of a catalog

the parts are very hard to sell, as well, have a pair of 71-76 doors, including a spirit of america with sport mirror, a few fenders, and a 71 four door parts car that have been sitting in the classifieds for several years now. the yard here had several cleaner examples, including a pair of two doors, but seemed to be in a great hurry to crush them then for the weight.

I have parted out a half dozen of these cars and some parts are easy to sell while others are tough. It also depends on what your prices look like. Do you have any inner fenders? Are you willing to ship them?

Anyone have a good grille for a 74 Impala 4dr? Mine has a small piece broken out of it. Also looking for a factory AM radio and complete door and trunk seals. New to the forum and wasn't seeing a parts wanted section like I have on my Jeep forums, so if I'm in the wrong place, just let me know. Thanks
