Laughing It's some stupid decoration thing. It had a little pumpkin headed scarecrow sitting on it but I think the dog got it.

I'll get the specs on the 383 later. I'm thinking about putting my nitrous system on it.

I might add that parts off of a 1968-'72 Chevelle fit well. The parts from 1973-'77 will also fit but are smog year cars, so not exactly high performance oriented. I used 1970 2-1/4" Chevelle BBC headers on my '85 Impala and they fit like a glove. Slap on some 12 inch discs and steering knuckles off of a 1977-'90 Cop car or a station wagon and steal the rear drums or discs if they have them while you are there. Since disc brakes are popular they will probably be gone but the drums off the wagon will be wider with a recessed backing plate. Also grab the sway bars and linkage as once again cop cars had a bigger bar than the SS.

Source all replacement service parts for a RPO code 9C1 cop car when you are buying stuff and you will get heavier duty parts than they put on the Impala SS. Bilstien also makes a set of heavy duty shocks for this car.

I also used a 12 bolt out of a 1970 Chevelle SS under my '85 Impala after I changed the brackets to fit the different suspension attachment system (Chevelle has the spring on the lower control arm and the Impala mounts it above the axle). Plus the lower control arm mounts in a different place on the axle. The Chevelle axle was about an inch wider than the Impala axle but that was easy to take care of with a custom offset wheels. I reused my stock Chevy steel wheels and had them widened at a circle track oriented machine shop not far from where I live so I could retain my stock hub caps. (In the south everyone watches drivers try and chase their tails, like some mangy hunting dog; running around in a circle for hours that for some reason that I can't understand why people find this entertaining).
