    I own a 70 Camaro SS and it has the original Muncie M20 4-speed and I was wondering if that leads towards an SS. And also if anyone Nowa vin number and can somehow find out if my vin is a real SS.

    The vin will not help ( well , indirectly it may ) . I noticed the car is a Norwood car so the trim tag should say something . With a vin as high as 83,000 it would be a late build car ( June or later ) . Find the numbers on the Muncie and see if they match the vin . Only the SS and Z28 option cars had Muncie transmissions.

    Look for a 12 bolt rear axle and welded on rear sway bar mounts on rear frame rails? Common features of a SS Or a z28. Cowl tag Information is also needed?

    You kind of answer your own question with the Muncie which you state as original

    If the Muncie has a matching VIN, the car has to be originally an SS or Z28 stated. If the original 12 bolt rear is in the car, the ratio code on it will tell you which of those cars it is. Z28 had either a 3.73 or 4.10. SS had 3.31 unless it was an L78 in which case it would have either a 3.55 or 4.10.
