I am sorry that I cannot. I retried a link that I had through YearOne.com but they have removed the information.

If you can post some numbers, i can help you decode them. But for now here is some basic info: Here are the body styles for 70 impalas.

16437 is an impala 2dr sport coupe
16439 is an impala 4dr sport sedan
16469 is an impala 4dr sedan
16447 is an impala 2dr custom coupe

The third digit tells you if the engine was a 6cyl or a V8. 4 is V8 and 3 is 6cyl. The body styles I showed were V8's. If any of them were a 6cyl, they would be 16337, 16339, 16369. As far as I know, you could not get a 6cyl in a impala custom coupe. There will be a 0 after the body style that means 1970 and then a letter that shows what plant the car was assembled at.
C - Southgate, CA
D - Doraville, GA
J - Janesville, WI
R - Arlington, TX
S - St Louis, MO
T - Tarrytown, NY
Y - Wilmington, DE

The info I just gave you will probably be more reliable than most websites on the internet right now.

I can also help you decode the tirm tag on the firewall as well.

Warren
