What a beautiful car, it looks very well cared for and I appreciate you taking the time and sharing the pics!
I do see where you stated you've switched the grill and tail lights to a 77. Any chance you might want to part ways with the 78 Impala grill?
Keep up the great work and please keep sharing!
I will be selling the grilles (all 3) and tail light lenses from the 78. I modified the rear tail-light housings to accept the 77 lenses, that is why I am selling the rear lenses only.
I am also likely going to sell the front and rear seats, since I am installing bucket seats and customizing the rear seat area making it a true two seater coupe.
I promise you, I will contact you as soon as ready to sell... which will be very soon.

I wish my body on my 79 was that nice.
Thanks Terry. I am 43 years old, and have been wanting and looking for one this clean since I was 16..... I feel like I hit the lotto.
Hi fellow 77-79 B fans. I sure am glad I found this group. I have been on a 3 year project f putting a 1996 Corvtte LT4 and 4l60E into a 78 coupe. It was a substantial job, and the wiring for the EFI was much of the chore. Hoverer the results are great and it really is a nice ruining and drivable machine. Not to mention the improved fuel economy, which is nice considering I now have about 330 HP, instead of the anemic 140 with the original power plant.
I am installing a 406 Chevy that should put out about 550 horse at the flywheel, a TH350 built to the hilt with a 28-3200 stall converter and 4.56 posi rear.
My 1979 you see in my left hand post panel was nicknamed the "5-Liter Eater", and I used to race Mustangs for their "5.0" emblems and place them like kill marks on my drivers door.... like a WWII fighter plane.
Nothing angers a Mustang owner like being beat by a full size "family car".
