Impala to Chevelle

Can anyone tell me if the rear end out of a 1967 SS Impala will bolt up to a 1967 Chevelle? I dont know much about Impalas but know where I can get the rear end outta one cheap, and would keep it as a back up.
Thanks...

Nope....it's wider.

A Lemans, Cutlass, Skylark rear will fit a Chevelle.

Yes what Poncho said. GM midsize uses diffrent parts in most cases than GM full size.

Like stated, it IS wider, but that can be corrected by using different wheels with more backspacing.

If this is what you would choose to go with for whatever reason, your only other unknown problem at most would bee the control arm link locations, and if they would allow this to be a direct bolt in or not.
