I have been talking to the owner for the last five years and it’s finally mine. 1970 SS 396 350hp auto. This car was sitting in plain view in Los Angeles CA. I got it home yesterday and I have been climbing all over it. Found three build sheet but only two of them are for this car. There is a lot of original parts on this thing including the alternator and starter. The trans is original and I’m still looking at the engine. AM FM with four speaker, AC, 12 bolt, all original exhaust, disc brakes, rear sway bar, master cylinder and Turbo 400. Dr door needs to be replaced and I believe the fender can be fixed. There is a spot of rust on the driver dash area and a spot on the fender and that is all I see. Trunk, floor pans and everywhere else looks good. For now I think I’m going to get it up and running and see how it goes. I like all muscle cars but my knolage lies with Mopars so any info somebody wants to add, please do.

    Awesome looking car. I love the toaster oven look - it’s been baking in the sun for many years.

    A big block SS with A/C.... not many of them around with all those original parts!

    I don’t believe a 4 speaker factory system was available but you’ve got a pretty rare project! :cool:

    Congratulations on finally getting it, big block 70s are getting impossible to find. Especially mostly all original cars like this one. Please keep the pictures coming?
