Here to find a home for my Grandmothers Impala

I joined this forum to find someone who wants to buy my late Grandmothers Impala. She inherited the car to me because I was the only one in the family that loved the car, waxed her every time I visited, and loved to cruise around windows down. Unfortunately I do not have the space nor the money to keep her stored during the Hot Humid summers here in Oklahoma. The car right now is in storage up in Montana where I drove it after my Grandmother past. I'm looking for a person that really loves impalas as much as my grandma loved hers. The cars name is Betsy and her exterior was fully restored in 2011. The interior was restored many years before that. This was my grandmas only vehicle from 1971-2010. Vehicle is in amazing shape. I will post an add in the classifieds once I have gotten better photos and confirm weather or not the block was replaced or if it has machining numbers and was just rebuilt.

Thanks,
Steve

Welcome to the Team Steve!

I am assuming he has a 1971 or older Impala. !971-'76 production years were the biggest heaviest of the full size B-body cars, and as such are not as popular. A car of this size wants a 454 to motivate it (same size car in the Cadillac line had a 500 cube motor to get it rolling).

I live in Montana and just got hooked on the Impala. I would be interested to hear more about ol betsy. I'm guessing with a car name like that she didn't have a 427 4 speed car?

1969 was the last year for the 427. It was replaced in 1970 by the 454 available in the A-body for the first time in the 1970 SS model (breaking the 400 cube self imposed limit so as to compete with Ford putting 428 and 429 cube big blocks in all of their cars in 1969), as well as the usual B and Y body cars (impala and Corvette).

Sorry for the delay holiday season was busy. Betsy is a 4 door hard top 1970 impala with a 350. Engine was replaced a number of years ago. Like I said before my Grandmother used Betsy as her daily driver from 1971 until 2011. Of course she was retired in late 80's so there was not tons of miles ever put on this car. I uploaded the only good photo I have of the car. I am planning a trip back to Montana in March where I can gather all the specific details on the car while I am up there. The car is being stored indoors at a storage facility.
