Nice. We had the Chevy Impala version. Lotsa family memories in it.

Did they have that EPA crap in 72?

And I am having a hard time believing the 200 miles deal..

That supposed 455 looks a Lot like an Olds 403...

1971 was the last year for high compression engines if i remember correctly. I think the compression in 72 was 9:1 or less.
