    Hello all. I have a 70 camaro for my first build. I purchased a wrecked 79 camaro and plan o n harvesting the wire harness, A/C which is working perfectly (my car is a Norwood car and came with factory A/C), and the interior which is in near perfect condition and that Carmine red color. Do any of the experienced gurus on the site see an issue with any of my plans as far as fitment/functionality?

    Also, the 79 has tilt column and cruise control. I definitely want to keep the column and hope I can transfer the cruise control over to my 70. Any and all feedback is welcome.;)

    Not at all. Everything you want to do can be accomplished fairly easily.

    @jimrr thanks so much for the input. I will start a thread and document my build. I know the dash pad for starters is different 70-78 and 79-81. Im not too worried about it. Im got a jump start by getting the complete running donor for a grand. just wrecked in the front. I wish it would have had a 350/350 drivetrain. It came with a 305/350 so I need a motor. I would have had all the big stuff for the build. Thanks again for the input!

    Your going to need every part of the AC system as a 70 used a expansion valve / POA valve system and the 79 used a factory fixed orifice / clutch cycling system . Even the controls and the box behind the dash
