Default 1970 Monte Carlo assembly line photos

Two more great assembly line pics posted the other day for the 1970 Monte Carlo. I'm not sure what the guide plates (if that's what those are) actually do during the hood installation step? Anyone know?

You could get a 12 bolt in a small block Monte Carlo also. That Astro blue with dark blue Vinyl looks killer. Its hard to make out exactly but looks to be a small block car looks like small block exhaust manifolds.

Also note the natural steel transmission crossmember. I see this a lot especially on Baltimore built Chevelles and Monte Carlos.

Also notice in the body drop picture of the blue Monte Carlo the driveshaft dampner attached to front yolk looks like a harmonic balancer only smaller. Also on the Cranberry Red body drop picture looks like the car has redline tires which I have never seen before on any of the 1970 Monte Carlo built sheet I have ever seen.

Really cool photos, thanks for sharing.
