Another "L" Code On Cowl Tag.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1970-...QQcmdZViewItem

Too bad this car is so hacked up. It seems to be a real SS, but with drums up front? It does seem to have an L on the cowl tag.

No VIN no sale in my book!


I never make mistakes, but on occasion I present myself with an opportunity to get very creative.

Being a race car all it's life is no excuse for a missing VIN tag.

Bummer, looks like the L78/LS6 6500rpm redline tach too.

11D date, could've been an L78, unless it was an elusive November built LS6...

Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.
Good livin' will speed it up, but it's worth it.

It's funny that it has manual drum brakes.

Ryan, a lot of drag cars got converted to drum brakes back in the day, as there was no rolling resistance when the brakes are off, unlike discs which have a bit of drag. Don't know how much time it was good for, but I doubt less than a tenth I would bet.
I personally would rather have the discs and be able to stop the car at the end of the 1/4 mile.
