I recently came across a wrecked 1970 Chevelle "SS" which I feel is basically a parts car. The frame rail in the front isn't too badly twisted but the rear of the frame mangled. It probably could be fixed but not very cost effective, and you end up with a salvage car in the end that never feels right. I would like to buy it but would like to know what's it worth as a complete car as-is? FWIW, it was recently "restored" (body on) and it seemed to be in great shape before it was wrecked.
Some details on the car:
It has a full black interior with buckets and a console. The dash is out of a 72 (it has the seat belt indicator) and the dash pad is cracked in the passenger corner. It has the tach package and a tilt wheel column.
The motor is a solid roller 454 (1971 "CPD" coded block) with a high rise manifold. I didn't cross reference the heads but supposedly they are 68 "COPO" heads. That's about all I can tell without taking anything apart. It has a "muncie" tranny, but not sure whether it is an M20 or 21 (it's not an M22 as per the owner). It does run and supposedly drives but I haven't tried to move it around.
It has the big block steering shaft, disc brakes and F41 suspension, although the rear control arms are aftermarket. It has a 12-bolt in it as well. It doesn't have cowl induction (although the hood is mangled anyways) and no hood pins either. I didn't check the numbers on the tranny or rear.
The windshield is toast but the rest of the glass is good. The only good sheetmetal on the car is the roof, passenger side quarter panel and both doors.
There is no documentation with the car. Judging by the body tag, I can tell that it was originally black cherry (78) with an ivory bench seat interior (790) but no clue if it was originally an SS or not as everything it has that points in that direction could easily have been bolted on when it was restored.
