A forum for all the owners and enthusiasts of General Motors B-Bodies from 1965-1996, but dedicated to the owners of 1977-1979 Impalas and Caprices. Join up now!
The 406 bottom end gave out and I was tired of dealing with the mechanic that someone I trusted recommended ...so now I'm saving for a blueprint engine I rather risk it with them than a local builderMyloth wrote:Sounds like and looks like a great project and car . I have nothing against big wheels I just like some air between myself
and the ground more than a bicycle tire has anyway. Nothing quite has the look of a large wheeled B body hence their
popularity for large wheel swaps. What happen to your 406 motor anyhow?
Yea back in the day this interior was in style in my area lol but I don't to much like custom interior myself I prefer the factory look ..with the floors a body shop here in town said they could patch it for a fair price because the whole floor isn't bad just a hole in driver and passenger floorsolo79 wrote:Welcome to the Forum! Nice 2-door! That interior sure is wild. Replacing the floor won't be an easy task. Currently, there are no aftermarket pans made for these cars. You either have to patch or cut a non rusty floor out of a donor car. The good news is, you have a huge span of years both 2 and 4 door 77-96 b-body floor pans are virtually the same. Good luck with the project and keep us posted!
