    I live in Ontario CA, (CANADA) and I thought the same thing. I did notice however that there are no trees around here that look as nice as the ones in the photo backgrounds do.

    Well, in response to your comments:
    1. The car was 2nd gen. representative for 2007 F-Body Chronicles article (super chevy magazine.) Page 2 has a pic of the car and 1st. gen 69 Z-28.
    The caption last sentence says
    " In mid 70 Chevy also produced a very rare SS (right)
    How much "due diligence" do you think the magazine did before putting that statement in print?
    2. The Cowl Tag: (doesn't look like
    there been any tampering.)
    914178
    91 Haven't located that RPO Code
    41 RPO Code for Heavy Duty Suspension front and rear.
    78 RPO Code for 396 Big Block 375hp. 1 of 600 made, but that isn't a selling point for me.
    I'm selling the car because it's time to move forward with other things in life.

    Please feel free to enlighten me a little more about any other features that I may have missed

    Here's a pic of the Street Master I have on my engine.
    This or a Torker 2-0 will fit under a flat hood

    Thanks for the info! My engine has a dual plane manifold on hence the higher profile. The dual plane offers better drivability on the street than a single plane.
    Plus didn't want to void the warranty from GMPP.

    Thanks for posting the pic of the magazine article! Mine is all tattered. What are your thoughts about the car being a "real SS Big Block car?"

    I really don’t know for sure !
    Without the build sheet on the LA cars it’s hard to prove. I would look for the rear end code& date on the axle tube PSide and compare to the build date may help prove it’s the SS It’s looks to me to be the 70 12 bolt housing.

    Thank you very much! I will look next time I'm able to crawl under it. Your the first to seemingly side with me on it's authenticity. All I want to do is present the facts as I've come across them in my advertising. Thanks again
