Re: El camino trim tag

L: Probably the most controversial is the letter L found on Malibu series Chevelles. It's strongly believed this letter L indicates external SS396 or SS454 trim but this has NOT been confirmed by any direct knowledge or GM documentation. https://www.chevellestuff.net/1970/c...s/70-kan-1.htm
