Re: 1970 Chevelle SS maybe

Run the gas low and drop the tank. Takes about 20min w a jack and the 2 bolts that hold the straps.. I just did my 68 tank and hoped to find a build sheet just for cool factor, but there wasn't one.

It may take leg work, persistence and luck but maybe you can find the original owner. Or you could start with person that you purchased the car from and go backwards.
I started with the 4th owner of my 69 and went backwards. Made it all the way to the original owner and got stories from all. I also found a newspaper from the local newspaper in the town that my original dealer was located in from Sept 10th 1969 that featured MY 69 being sold as a new car. Never know unless you try.
I tried this. My build sheet indicated my 70 was delivered to Rinke Chevrolet in Centreline Michigan. I found this dealership still exists and I sent a request for info regarding the original purchaser. They were kind enough to respond that they digitized all their paper records but only as far back as 1980 and then destroyed them. Well, at least I tried.

Why is it not a LS-6 for sure, because of the AC?

Thanks,

Bill

Correct. You could not order a/c with the LS6 engine option.

Thanks,

Inside door panels. Under carpet. Top of glove box. In between inner fender and fender. Just some possibilities.
