Here’s a 1970 Super Sport Chevelle with a 396 / 375 cloaked in “Shadow Gray” GM factory paint. I was so doe-eyed over “ OMG!! Is this a REAL L-78?!?!?” that I forgot if it’s an automatic or a 4-speed!! Nor did I look at the carburetor. Obviously there’s an aftermarket manifold and someone else was using their cellphone flashlight looking at casting numbers on the engine block to verify yea or nay. For the sake of this summer weekend, let’s pretend it’s a valid 396/375 L-78 with a Muncie M-22 Rockcrusher. :-) Have a great weekend everyone!!!

1967 Chevelle Super Sport in Ermine White with a 396 big block and a factory Muncie 4-speed. There is an owner-added Hurst shifter. (His horsepower sticker on the breather is incorrect, only came in 325, 340 or 375, but I won’t fault him for that 😊). Look at the ignition switch at the top of the dash. Yes, the factory clock on the console still works. Would love to have this car as a daily driver!

Mint condition 1967 Camaro Indy 500 Pace Car at a local car show last weekend. This car has a 350 with 295 horsepower and a Powerglide transmission and is of course, a convertible. The factory color is “Ermine White” with a blue interior. Some versions came with a clear coat over the pace car graphics. Speculation on the number of ‘67 Pace Cars built range from 103 to over 600, take your pick. :-) This car is for sale too!

1972 Chevelle Super Sport looking sharp with her classic Craiger S/S rims! The owner wasn’t around when I took these pics so I’m not sure what power plant is under her hood. The car does have an automatic; turbo 400 perhaps? On the pic of the interior, the car looks orange. Glare. I have read that in ‘72 Chevelles, only 454s came with hood pins, and I see hood pins…
