Your on the right track! Three Pentagons and a gaggle of Covens complete it.

496CHEVY3100 I tried to correct the post above but cant edit it,,

you are correct about disc brakes,the rear end and front parts were from an Impala which had drum brakes,it had many other options but the Posi Traction was not one of them,,funny thing the 6 cyl and the small blocks were avalible with it and the L79 small block was rated at only 25 HP less,.
