Can you tell if this ’70 Chevelle Convertible is an SS clone?

    Upon further consideration I will alter my previous statement to state that this might be a wannabee. Did anyone see that 68 Buick Skylark Special W/the Buick 400CI engine? It looks a little rusty but that would be a sweet ride, I had a 400CI Buick engine in my 68 Skylark. White with a black vinyl roof & plain old wheel covers. The #’s matched. I could leave a nice burnout for a block or more, didn’t compare to my 68 GTO or my 69 Firebird but could still haul ass. It had a bench seat and an automatic transmission. That was one of my favorite cars, I smashed it up less than a week after I bought it. After that accident the car would dog-track almost 2 feet, it was like driving a sail boat into a cross wind when I drove it to the junkyard. The block was cracked and the rods were knocking, it was really steaming by the time I got there and you could see a trail of smoke down HWY 45 for over a quarter mile, black and blue, like that poor Skylark was.

    It should also be noted that both the SS396 (actual displacement was 402CI’s) and the SS454 came with hood pins as standard equipment. I highly doubt that someone removed the pins, I believe this to be an SS wannabe.

    Well, gentlemen, upon further inspection, you will find this Chevelle has been fitted with a 396.
