1978 Chevrolet Impala

After the major redesign in 1977, the 1978 Impala saw few changes.  A new horizontal-bar grilled graced the 1978 models, placing the Chevrolet insignia above rather than on the grille.  

The base engine remained a 250-ci I6 rated at 110 horsepower, with an optional 305-ci V8 rated at 145 horsepower and a 350-ci V8 rated at 170 horsepower.

While underwhelming compared to the earlier versions of this car, the 1978 model remains popular today for its sharp lines and reconditioning opportunities.
