RPO M35 code

For a 1970 chevelle malibu the RPO code for the transmission is M35

desc: M35 Powerglide automatic.

Does this mean it would have had a center console w/buckets or it just describes the transmission type?

Tag...
ST 70 13637 OS547465 BDY
TR 782 4545 PNT
2D U80M35

thanks.
Jules

Just describes the transmission.


D55 would be a console, and A51 would be buckets.

Oshawa-built V8 Chevelle Malibu coupe in Green Mist with Dark Green cloth & vinyl bench seat. Factory radio (either am or am/fm mono) with auxiliary rear speaker. As for V8s, your car with a Powerglide could have had a 307 (likely) or a 350 2 or 4-barrel. VVS could document your Chevelle as to the way it was built - for a price.

Ah, that would be Vintage Vehicle Services, an arm of GM that kept records on many if not most Canadian-built or sold GM vehicles.
Years ago the service was free for the asking. Not many people were asking. Later they were swamped with requests, plus GM is a business so they began charging. Now the information you get is certified with a seal because some people were trying to fake the documentation. With the seal comes a higher price, but at least it is available.

Contact info taken from Chevelles.com:
