There was the W30 option and the Hurst Olds. The Trans Am was a Firebird, not a Chevelle.

For a week back in high school we had a yellow 1970 Olds 442 w- 30 for a driver's education car. Our regular car (don't remember what it was) was broke down and in the shop. The W-30 was a hoot to drive!

Right and the (Bandit) was a Pontiac made famous by the movie. The SS Chevelle is a badged edition of the Chevy which could of been a Malibu or 2 door post 300 Deluxe, so what are they asking for out of the Custlass is was a Olds. Other names are: F-85, 4 4, Calais, Brougham, Supreme, SX, Rally, Rocket, W-46, W-25, L77, Salon, Colonade, Cutlass S, Optional Nothback, A- Body or G-Body, H-O, Jack (DOC) Watson, OLDS 455, Commotion By Motion, Chance-Vought, Rockette, Coupe, Jetfires, Hardtop, One time I heard that the engine was referred to from its builders as the Fat Block, I guess because the casting was thicker at least for the older blocks.
