No VIN tag - I'd make sure to ask the prior owner if he still has the 69 dash with the VIN. Very important part (the VIN).
Not sure where you would get the 69 metal dash parts except from a parts car.
Drum brakes? I don't think this originally was an SS then. Maybe a LM1?

Tail light lenses are not RS and I do not see the cut outs for the back up lights in the rear pan so I don't think it is an RS either.

If you read his earlier post and pic, he says the RS tailights got swapped out at one point, and you can see in the pic he posted that the back up lights got filled in as well.

I believe a pic was posted that showed reverse light holes filled in, in an earlier post in thread. I think Fahad should be checking that hidden VIN and making sure his car was not sent overseas because there is a problem with its history.

I would hold off on sand blasting the steering box, you don't want small particles getting in through the seals and ruining it. The rest looks good though

By the way I would buy repair kit for the steering box.

Many thanks for your observation.

You displayed a new automatic transmission that I assume you will be using, correct? If not already planned for you will need a different cross-member as the one in your picture is for a manual transmission.
