Welcome Phil, This is a perfect place for anyone with a Impala. Sorry but I know of no one that reproduces a 70 Impala hood.

Welcome to the Team Phil!

If you wan a steel hood it will need to be off a donor vehicle but none came with a cowl hood from the factory. In fiberglass there are about a total of two. Here is one I saw the other day. You need to scroll down the page about 4/5ths of the way to the bottom. they have three hoods to choose from.
