Asked by 72buickgs Mar 30, 2011 at 09:55 PM about the 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle

Question type: General

I have a 69 that came completely torn apart when I got it.  I was told it was an SS which I believed because it had all the tell tale signs, the black stripe in the back, 12 bolt rear end, bucket seats and console, SS trim for inside.  Got a manual and it says all SS's were 138 vin and the car has a 136vin? If sombody cloned it they wen to a lot of trouble to make it look good and then let it go to pot.  I have heard both stories that some SS's had a 136 code in 69?
