As you can tell by the history of posts about this series, they are not exactly barn burning due to activity here. There are about three maybe four folks who in the last decade I have been looking at posts who have expressed an interest; or actually own one of these barges. This was the reason that Chevy brought the SBC 400 to market as these were not only the largest B, C and D body cars produced but the heaviest. The C-body shared the same frame and sheet metal but was a front wheel drive car, the older D body where based upon the Chevy B-body but where either converted into ambulances or limos by stretching the body and frame ten inches in the rear foot well.

Keep in mind Cadillac, Buick, Olds and Pontiac all made B-body cars that have the same sheet metal and frames; but differ in trim motors and interior. Well that is mostly true they used the same dies but had different inserts to ad a fake air vent or ridge in the hood or some insignificant thing to separate a Cadillac from the same car called a Chevy that cost a half to a third the price. Different motors were significant as in this time frame the Caddy V-8 displaced over 500 cubes, and Buick had a 455 that put out more torque than Chevy's 454. Most Chevy Impalas had a SBC 350 as the base motor with the 454 or the SBC 400 offered as an option.

If you need patch panels or full quarters look at the other GM marquees to see if you can find some good used metal to repair your Chevy.
