Hello all, I have a 70 SS camaro, numbers don't match. Was originally a
straight 6. It's been sitting for 20 years without being driven. I have a
454 big block in it, that's never been run. In your opinion is this car
I'm afraid to start poking around at it, from fear or what I might find.
What can I expect to find? I know the engine does need to be rebuilt again.
Don't ask me why it's been sitting for 20 years.
someone probaly put a 6 in it...if its been sitting..its worth restore..but
more $ the brakes,lines n alot of other stuff r probaly froze up or rusted
off..the engine will be the cheaper part of this reso...how is the body?
If the car originally came with a straight six, then it's not really an SS.
The smallest engine that ever came in an SS Camaro any year was the 350. In
1970 there were a few rare beast built with 402's, but budged a 396. - Gary
it is NOT an SS Camaro if it had a 6 cylinder originally
only the 300hp/350 4bbl engine and the 396's were available in the SS Camaro
But ALL 70-81 Camaros are worthy of restoration as far as preserving it. the
6 cyl. 307 350-2bbl cars are worthy of speed parts and engine swaps.
So strap in the BBC
Make the car pretty and enjoy it
