Re: 70 Cowl hood air cleaner & parts - are they real?
I would go with a cowl hood on the chevelle ( my 70 has one) but why install NOS set up on a car that was never equipped with it, when repop stuff while not 100% correct is available pretty cheap. Sell the original stuff for a boatload of money, better yet, offer it up in trade for a running 454 and a good 12 bolt and a 4 speed. Someone doing g a nut and bolt restoration on a LS6 will probably pay a premium for NOS stuff. That would go a long way to finance the build of the car.
If all the NOS stuff is installed on the malibu, it's not going to make the car worth any more to anyone vs having a reproduction hood. Heck 99% people wouldnt k ow a original or a factory part. And the 1% that does will say your car never came with a cowl hood anyway. jim
