How do I know if my 1974 Chevrolet el camino is really an SS?
I just bought a 1974 Chevrolet El Camino and it has all the proper SS badging. How do I know if it is really an SS?
You need to find the build plate (Protect-o plate). Should be riveted to the firewall at the top on the drivers side. SS cars are easy to fake. If I where you I'd pick up a Chevelle/El Camino ID book. There are several out there to choose from. It will give you a detailed description of what to look for in a true SS car.
Thank you for that info. Hope when it's a true SS.
maddog you can trust that answer. Dude knows
I hope it is too. Sad thing is there are more clones and fake Chevelle/Camino than real ones. What's up FordNut? Thanks for the compliment. Growing up my dad had a few Chevelles and El Caminos. I learned a lot about classic cars from him.
