1970 Chevelle LS6 parked in 70's uncovered
Okay guys, so my uncle got word of a possible 70 chevelle ss "original owner" for sale. Of course he jumped on top of it and we both went on a long haul to Illinois to see this. Well, despite its age it actually was in great shape. We went through the car and decided its authenticity was legit and brought it back home.
Some background on it....
It is a 1970 chevelle ss 454 ls6 automatic originally bought in missouri.
very well documented, well optioned, with protect-0-plate in car.
owner kept all service records for it, pictures, and parts
The owner was 16 when bought brand new off lot, drove it for a few years blew original motor and had it factory replaced under warranty and then it sat since 1974. The car has 40K miles on it
___Things get a little shaky on the motor and I wanted to see if there was some way to trace things back to what happened if anyone can lend a hand but anyways
The motor was out of the car disassembled and the owner said it was a factory replaced block under warranty.
After checking up on the numbers it comes up as showing a 72 454 (CE) block, it is a 4 bolt main, steel crank, dome top pistons, correct heads.
We're scratching our heads about this. two pistons are scarred badly and the bearings are backwards, heads are undamaged and painted so If it's a factory replaced block why is it out and whats with the damage?
The vin is 136370k1xxxxx
