1973 big block impala

Here is another question I have. I have found a 1973 Impala 2dr that came with a 454. It currently has a 402. The body is very rough. I want it for the motor and tranny. My plan was to pull the motor and tranny and junking the rest since I have no use for it. Then I was wondering if the body would be worth anything since it is an original 454 car

The car it self is pretty rare there might have been alot built but arent around anymore. If it is really rusty The interior trunk lid, doors can all be used to restore a convertible which usually bring good money in nice shape.
It might be worth it to part out.

Sounds like a good idea. I am getting a late 70's camaro for the clip for $100, a 442 olds for the rearend for $125. He wants $350 for the impala so I would buy it at a later date.

all of those cars are worth parting out.. don't waste anything, getting harder to get stuff anyway with the steel prices up, with junkmen that don't care

I plan on getting the camaro for the front clip and rearend. here is no front sheemetal. The olds is missing the motor tranny hood, grill and back window. It had a nice console. I want the rearend for my 51 F-1. I will pull the rearend and take the rest to my uncles and sell parts off it. The impala has a rusty body, it had a vinal top so the meatal is toast. I want it for the 402 even though it needs rebuilt

The rear end in that 73 Imoala is likely a 12 bolt.....maybe posi.....worth saving.

I would bet there is someone somewhere looking for parts off that car.

You should verify the production numbers.

I know not everyone can save stuff until the right person comes along but matt is correct ... they just ain't making them no more.


I will crush a ricer with out a thought but them it hurts.

20 years ago there was a old man who filled up @ the gas station & worked at. 72 2 Dr 454 .

He would mess with kids in town give um a car length or 2 & then shut them down.

A good old fashion spanking .


HA HA HA

I am getting the camaro this weekend. He told me the 442 had a 10 bolt so I am going to pass. My dad was taling about buying it. On the impala he said it had a knock so I will pass. He has a 51 Ford truck minus motor and tranny for $250 and another 51-2 truck for $200. this one is rusty but it has a perfect set of back fenders and bed. I am going to get these when I get the money up. The rolling chassis will be a future poject and the other willl be stripped for parts. My dd wants to graft the camaro clip on a doner frame

A '73 would have the 8.5" 10 bolt but could well be a posi. Either way it's definitely worth crawling under it to find out.
