    In need of complete front clip 78 impala

    Post  Dad on Fri Oct 31, 2014 1:32 pm

    My baby girl lost her pride and joy yesterday evening when she was hit by another drive who was doing distracted driving and speeding.  This car is hurt very bad but as a dad I need to do what I can to save the day.  So, in short, I need an entire front clip for this beauty.  Any help would be grateful.

    Welcome to the Forum! Sorry to hear about that, but the main thing is that she is okay. Do you have any pictures of the damage? Are we talking the whole front end or just one side? The parts are difficult to come by these days because the 77-79 Fenders alone are different than 80-90. Also, your header panel and front bumper are different as well. Header panels vary from 77-79. You might check with Sweet Seventy9 on here. He is our resident parts guru. If he doesn't have it, he might be able to track it down. I'm sure he'll chime in here too.
