I have a Fathom Green car that had body colored rockers.  No blackout on this car.

Garage Talk / Re: Rare L72 69 Impala SS

69 SS B-cars came in two 427 configurations only:  390hp and 425hp.  NO A/C on 425hp versions.  My brother has had a 390hp version for 30 years.  Impressive for a big car.  But the L72 would increase the fun factor by quite a bit.

The Holley on my big block does the same thing.  More noticeable since I pulled off the cowl hood flap for full time cool air, providing a noise path.

421 gen 1 small block maybe?  That might be enough small block for a big block guy... 

General Discussion / Re: What intake do i have on my 69 SB 350?

Agree..L79 intake.  Look at the 90 degree bend in the intake runner.

The C1 Vettes with dual quad and FI systems had the dual exhaust cross over pipe at the front of the oil pan.  My '60 270hp job was set up that way.  It ran strong and had a unique tone.  Miss that car.

It never ceases to amaze me that someone would expend the energy to cut a die set for a part and not get it right.  With 3-D scanning available there should be no excuse for putting out parts like the repro's shown.  Who is doing the trade work and where?  Are they blind?  Sad.

Agreed - Do NOT use synthetic.  I made that mistake before I consulted this forum and my shift quality was horrible in a freshly rebuilt M20.  Box had about 150 miles on it when I drained and replaced with the mineral based GL-4(?) spec and it is like a different gear box.  Much better shift quality.

Looks like a fairly solid case for legitimacy at this point.  Congrats.

It was a long shot but I had to ask.  My dad's friend had a company car at that facility with the rally green/rs combination.

Is it rally green with a white top?

Add another one.  I have a Norwood produced 12B X33 76B factory RS car. 

I know for a fact that these scenarios did occur in assembly plants but were, admittedly, very rare.  One of my dad's friends worked at the local Chevrolet assembly plant and had his '66 Chevelle Malibu equipped with seat material from the Caprice models.  It was an intricate woven cloth fabric and from my research was not an RPO.  The vehicle survives today, is still in the owner's family and is in very good original condition. The original owner pampered the car and it never saw a Midwest winter.  One of the best survivor cars I've ever seen. And no it's not for sale. If it was, it would be in my garage.

Glad I checked back in to read the feedback.  Guess I can put in on a shelf for display in the man cave along with my orphan RA-V Pontiac carb.
