Hello!

Hi eveyone, I am a long term Impala nut from Western Canada (Vancouver). I have owned 8 1968 Impala/Caprices over the years, 6 of them of the Big Block variety. I am currently working on a resto of a 1968 L72/427 Convertible.

I look forward to sharing and learning new info on Impalas!

Sounds like a bitchin' ride!

It's good that all 427 Impala's get well-documented. You can start by posting pics here! lol.

Old video of a '68 I used to race:

My 68 Caprice:


I will take some pics of the convert and post them, it is still very early in the resto phase. If all goes well it will be rolling by next spring!
