68 SS impala

Just registered on your site. Thanks. I just purchased a 68 SS 327 4 speed fastback. It is an Ohio car and is rusted bad. I Need a rust free body or close to it. Any help out there for that? Does the 67 fastback share the same body and frame as the 68 fastback? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Jeff

Hey neighbor!
Your expectation is correct, the 67-68 do share a lot of parts. I'm sure someone else will chime in with better detail.

You going to be looking for quarter panels, front fenders or floorboards? Trunk pan?
There are about a good 5-8 shops dealing in Impala parts. Classic, Hubbards, Lutty's, YearOne, maaaybe NPD (National parts depot), Chevrolet Restoration Parts, Bobs Impala, shoot, I can't keep track of them all.


Show us some pics of the beast when you can!

Welcome to the Team Jeff!

Many people buy the car of their dreams and only after they have invested their hard earned cash do they look to see how they are going to get it their dream car into shape. In doing so they often find a much better project car once they widen their perspective ( a Bel Air or Biscayne instead of an Impala for less money in better shape, but without the desired SS interior), and attempt to combine the two cars.

Even a four door can contribute valuable parts if you can buy it cheap enough (just about everything forward of the front doors is the same). So you could find a big block wagon somewhere to put more muscle into your SS impala project, or at least one with prettier ,shinier trim parts such as bumpers and grills. .

The first thing I would do is go to the All American Classics website.

http://www.allamericanclassics.com/

They have everything and anything you will need for the 68 SS.

68 impala

Thanks for the information. This body needs more than a trunk pan, it is toast. That's why I wondered if the 67 and 68 fast back were the same, that would give me more options to find a good body..
