Hi John
Your chrome base looks like an aftermarket piece-a gm open element base is black-as well 1970 original open element bases are 1 yr only and different from all the other ones-the vent tube sticks past the base 1 "-I tried to post the link(my old computer)-but if you go on Yenko.net and search "open element"chads454ls6 had one for sale with great pictures-original 1970 ones are hard to find and expensive-not sure if any of the reproduction ones they sell have the proper vent tube-hope this helps!
Keep on Cruising!!!

The correct open element for 1970 only was GM#6485239-if you search on here and Yenko site it has some good info and pictures-hope this helps-I have a nos one in gm box I bought/found years ago-haven't seen a nos one since-I just sold a factory gm one.
Keep on Cruising!!!
