After doing more research I have confirmed only that it is a 1970 sports coupe built in July-August and did leave the factory with a V-8. But that’s about all I got. I do know this is not the original engine but everything else is.


Well, you have been able to find most of the information you wanted. Now, start restoring it and enjoy it!

Thanks, just wanting to confirm or nail down if it was in fact a true SS. Again everything seems to be leading that way but just hit the wall with a definitive answer on the V8 engine... Someone did say that there could be a “build” sheet on top of the gas tank so I will look there this weekend.



So I found the build sheet above the gas tank unfortunately it’s not legible. I can only read/make out certain section of it. Does anyone have a blank build sheet that would tell me where to look for the information on which V8 engine it shipped with?
