So you would like interchange on the latch in the back of the door as well as the mechanism that the splined inside door handle attaches to?

The lock (latch at the back of the inside of the door) is 7730079.

The control(part the inside handle slides onto) is 8789689. 

I don't have interchange info handy but as far as Pontiacs go, the lock fits only hardtop and convert, 1968 full size and the control fits all models of 1968 Parisienne, but not Laurentian or Strato Chief. Not sure why they don't fit but it's a different number.

So Impala is different? Door handles are the same so thought maybe the same.

Why do you want to change the latch? Most of the time it malfunctions it simply needs a major cleaning and re-lubrification. Another common issue is the little spring that keeps the outer button under tension fails making the lock resistant to unlocking from inside. The spring can be replaced without removing the latch from the car.
