Awesome — The front chrome bumper gives the car a tough and slick appearance. Unlike the 1969 model however the 1969 rear bumper was a little more stylish than the 1970 in my opinion. My 1970 was not equipped with a power booster break system which makes quick stopping difficult, Not to mention drum brake all around.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

This Car Is Very Stylish & Beautiful Plus Has Power On Demand!! — I honestly don't like nothing specific about this car, I absolutely loved everything about it!! I mean just look at this car how could u not love everything about it... It's a classic, it has a unique body design, it demands your attention when you see & hear it approaching. This is a real weekend warrior type of vehicle that anyone would love cruising around town or over to your local strip!

This Car Is Very Stylish & Beautiful Plus Has Power On Demand!! — I liked everthing about this car! The look, the feel, the attention it draws when out cruising about... I love that the maintenance on it is so affordable, plus it is very easy to keep clean & up to par. Thou if it's one thing I hate it's the gas consumption due to the cam.

American Classic — This car is truly a classic American car, The thing I love the best is the styling. 1970 was a great year for cars especially Chevrolet. I like the idea of a full size car with a full frame , quality built car.

Fun To Drive & Always A Head Turner — I still have my 70 caprice custom coupe after 25yrs. I love it ! The 454 has more power than it needs. The Z-24 package makes it handle good for as big as it is. I put headers & duels on & my son & grandsons call it the (Big Noisy Car!)I hope to restore it some day. My 7 yr old son said he wants it some day !

My Uncle's Impala By Krista

Well, the car belongs to my uncle, but in 1958 I don't think they were as interested in "handling" so much as going fast and looking good at it. This car is all original, rides like a dream, and made... Read More

It Was My All-time Favorite Car (and I Have Had Over 30). By Statguy

Styling -- 5 stars -- especially the Impala coupe. Performance was fine, not outstanding. I had 283 V8, not a 348, so that's what one would expect. If you want a car that will turn heads and contin... Read More
