1970 Chevelle Undercarriage(Underbody) finish?

Does anyone have pictures of a 1970 Chevelle's undercarriage that shows the body color overspray and primer?

Does a 1970 Chevelle have the black anti-corrosion coating on the floors? I've seen this on '67 - '69 Camaros.

Is there a dark gray primer available that looks like the original used on the undercarriage?

Is it a very dark gray?

Check out Rick Nelson's MuscleCar Restoration & Design website for some great before and after photos of 70 Chevelles he has restored.

Might also want to pick up a copy of our Chevelle Restoration & Authenticity Guide 1970-1972 for more helpful information.

I agree with others. This depends a lot on the build plant, build date. Built in the States or Canada? Some plants did things there own way. Get some books, Due some research......... Then " Get er done".

Re: 1970 Chevelle Undercarriage(Underbody) finish?

The weirdest one I have seen is that many 1967 Chevelles & Beaumonts built in Oshawa came with blue floors underneath, regardless of body color. I don't know if it was some kind of zinc primer or just regular enamel. Mine had vestiges of body color (dark green in my case).

Re: 1970 Chevelle Undercarriage(Underbody) finish?

A few years ago a member here, DROPTOP L-89 LS-6, posted this picture of a 1970 Chevelle undercarriage that was restored(thread attached in link below). He said it was correctly done. This one has red oxide primer.

It looks to have the black anti-corrosion coating in the transmission tunnel and rear wheel wells.

Does anyone have any pictures of the dark gray primer that was used?

Different plants used different colors and even those can vary. Page 127 of the Chevelle Restoration & Authenticity Guide 1970-1972 has data on this.

I just need to confirm if a dark gray primer was used on the undercarriage.

Do you have the Chevelle Restoration & Authenticity Guide 1970-1972?

If so can you confirm this for me?
