Without the matching engine, it will not be worth nearly as much as it would be if you had it. As stated above, we need some pictures and a better discription of the car along with the overall condtion of the body etc...

70 SS Camaro, I assume its a 350 If its a 396 I'll double my $7.42 offer.

But either way it should have a 12 bolt rear end. A peak underneath will show either 2 bolts at the lowest point of the cover or 1 bolt, 2 bolts =12 bolt, 1 bbolt=10 bolt.

Hide-away wipers
hood insulation blanket
f-41 rear sway bars (opt on 350, std on 396)
black taillight panel on 396 (though my 350 was too, it was an early jan 70 production)
those are a few things to look for.

Hi its got a 12 bolt rear with a rear swaybar its got custom interior wood grain door panels,steering wheel, center console,cluster i have the build sheet with my vin number on it describes it as being a true ss..Needs some body work on rear quarter panel the only real problem is the trunk floor rusted needs to be replace.

dog. In order to value what a car is worth, pictures are a must. What shape is the interior? Auto or 4 speed? SB or BB? Since the trunk floor is gone, are the frame rails also rotten? These questions can be answered with some good pics. A deluxe interior 70 SS could be worth a few $$ to the right person.;)

Tell you what, since there are no pictures I'll give you $500.00 sight unseen.

Did you buy this car off eBay? I remember seeing a 1970 SS, no motor needing a ton of sheetmetal and it went pretty cheap.

You lucky dog!
You found a build sheet for your car, and a 70 to boot!

I completely stripped my 71 RS/SS and never found a single build sheet. :(

Thanks alot dakdawn for posting my pics.Now that my pics are up can any one tell me how much can i sell this camaro 1970 ss 350 for.One member on here told me this was not worth fixing that if it was his he would part it out.I find it hard to believe that this member would part this 1970 camaro ss oh by the way he also told me that if i do part it out he's interested in buying parts.I have the build sheet with maching vin number on it.

All I can tell you is to come up with an asking price, and throw it out there to see what happens. You are going to get all kinds of numbers from different people, so ask what you feel the car is worth. If you can sell it for more than you paid, you are ahead in the game......If not, maybe you paid too much for it to begin with...:mad:

Definitely not a tight-mesh SS grille. No SS steering wheel. But, it has a sway bar.

Hmmmm.....

F 41 suspension was a 1970 option
350's with AC got 12 bolts
Tach and gauges were an option
SS has 350 4v 300hp or 396
hidden wipers
style trim group
hood insulation
power brakes
SS badges
black grille

how about posting a picture of the build sheet and the data plate on the cowl i cant believe that someone would buy a high performance ss with a 12 bolt and leave the ss options off, i dont even see the mounting holes for the badges and every thing ive seen that was required from gm

Hello well to answer your questions the reason the front grill does not have the ss emblem is because someone took it off there is a broken piece on the top middle grill also the picture shows the left side fender no ss emblem only 350 emblem but the right side does have the ss emblem and the 350 emblem too just did not take a picture of the right side.Like i said i have the build sheet it was cover in dirt and oil really hard to see anything but you can clearly see z27 super sport and vin# to..If anyone is interested in buying this camaro i wouldnt have any problem proving this is a real ss camaro because the build sheet says its a super sport

The reason its not a ss steering wheel its because they did not have a ss steering wheel for 1970 camaro they had them for 1971 -1973..

1970 Steering Wheel has a different shroud than the 1971 Shown in above picture. SS Car would have SS in center of shrouid, unless R/S SS in which case it would have RS in the center of Woodgrain Shroud. Note Regular SS could also have woodgrain horn shroud and woodgrain dash if Z-23 Interior accent group was ordered.
iateitdog70ss needs to show the trim tag and show the 197???? Vin tag and stop all this what year is it nonsense

I have a 1970 Camaro SS horn button. Its the same basic shape as the one picture but is thin hard plastic with SS in the middle.
The one shown is a 71-ish padded hoen button.

my understanding for the 1970 year is that whenever the SS option was combined with the RS option, the SS emblems were used and the RS emblems were deleted (steering wheel, fenders). there was no SS grille emblem if you had an RS front end.

my SS/RS has a woodgrain horn shroud with a small SS emblem in the center.

That was my understanding as well. My 1970 396 I had when I was a teen had the SS steering wheel (it was not an RS, FYI). It also had idiot lights and the large gas gauge, no tach....

From looking at the pictures, I would venture to guess that at least part of the front end has been replaced, and perhaps a 72 or 73 grille was used, not paying attention to SS details.

But then again, that does not explain the lack of the SS steering wheel, nor was I there, so it's just a guess.

I believe you too.A lot of changes can happen during the cars 35 years.Grill could be replaced,emblems can be taken off,rally wheels can be added.
