Cool

I agree with roy63 on this one. If you have a choice and the cars in good enough shape save it and tub something else. Find something somebody started and never finished. I have 3 tubbed cars, all projects someone else started and never finished. But a 427 4 speed SS Chevelle, I would have to reconsider tubbing. To many projects already started out there that nobody finished to do that to that car. Just my 2cents.

I'm not well versed on Chevelle options, but is the SS427 in `70 an oddity? I've heard of SS350, 396, and 454's for `70 but I can't recall a 427. Is this really rare? As far as tubbing goes, I'd lean towards cutting up a no numbers non-rare optioned car. Or clone an SS. (sort of a purist that way)

What I remember,on 69-71 chevelles,there is no way you can tell motor size by the any #'s,only way to tell is if you have the build sheet.the 66-68 & 72 chevelles was in the vin. #,I think there are more BOGUS Super sports out,than what was built.I would not tub your car,70 is the Hottest year for Chevelle,Other posts are correct.no 427 in 70.69 was the last year.
