That's a neat car, easily worth what you paid all day long. Those are some ancient slicks!

Thanks, I'm going to start getting into it tomorrow after work. Looks like the carb is a Holley 800 cfm double pumper. Thought the rear was an open 10 bolt but now I see a tag on the cover, may be a posi.

More pics to come.
Forgot to add, PO went to put the car in his name so he had a recent registration we could transfer. I take the reg and check against the Vin plate...one number wrong. I just LOVE the nys DMV. I am withholding 500 until this gets straightened out. Gotta love it.

Re: 69 SS 396/325 Auto

I have never seen someone loop the heater core connections together. Does that help in cooling?

Generally done to bypass using the heater core. If you think about it, it actually cuts down the amount of coolant in the system a little bit.

Re: 69 SS 396/325 Auto

Ha, yeah, some of the things on here I just shake my head. I almost didn't get the car, good ol boys wanted to take it to the track again. I urged them that they would never pass tech, lol.

Re: 69 SS 396/325 Auto

Mike,

I think you got a decent car for the money. Sure looks like it can be a real SS to me. Does it have a bolted on steering column flange where the column meets the rag joint? Disc brakes? There are more indicators, but those will get you started.

Anyway you have something fun for not a ton of money.

On my Framingham 69 Malibu, I found a full build sheet on top of the gas tank. If it is there, it will have the rest of the documenting evidence of what the car is. My car also has the partial build sheet from under the rear seat; and, I used a flexible inspection camera and just found another partial build sheet inside the driver's side seat-back.

Here's some pictures of the full sheet from on top of the gas tank and the partial from the rear seat. Then one of the two put together.

That is too cool, I am very happy about the car and know that its a real SS. I am going to track down the original owner and drop the tank on the car once I get into it. Never thought to look inside the driver seat but was thinking about pulling the door panels, ya never know. PO cannot find the original build sheet he found back in 2012 but at least I still have my pics of it.

Re: 69 SS 396/325 Auto

Totally off topic but Phil, I too, have a Framingham car and the pic you posted with the piece of build sheet looks identical to the one I found in the seat back. Unfortunately, that was the only one i found in the entire car when I did the resto. Nice to see another "piece" of Framingham history. Now, back to the original topic. Didn't mean to hijack.

Re: 69 SS 396/325 Auto

Duke,

When I found that build sheet I was thrilled. My car had so many options, I thought someone put them on after the fact. Ends up they were there from day one.

Unfortunately, most Framingham cars have only the left 1/3rd build sheet. A friend of mine's Baldwin Motion Chevelle had the left 1/3rd with some of its major options and a deliver dealer of Baldwin Motor Car Company. The rest of the car was well documented, that was just a little icing on the cake. That portion of build sheet was found in the bucket seat skirt area.

Back to topic of Mike's car. Good luck with the rest of the search!

Re: 69 SS 396/325 Auto

It's finally alive and it feels like a beast. Had a few hiccups, the electric fuel pump was dead so I just installed a mechanical pump I had on the shelf. I took it for a drive around the yard. Here is a quick video that my son took, he didn't think it was going to start, lol.

See if you can get a cowl tag picture.

Framingham left full build sheets on top of the gas tank.
