Default Heavy Chevy - New Lease on Life

Dragged this out of the shed it had been sitting in since the early 80's. 1972 Heavy Chevy that had SS emblems and SS door panels added in the late 70's. It will be fun cleaning it up and seeing if there is a build sheet.

I have not pulled the carpet to look yet.

Does anybody know if these came with SS exhaust tips? This one has them including original resonators.

41,000 miles I believe to be correct judging by the originality of the engine compartment including tower clamps and original GM radiator hoses. Carpet appears to have been added when the door panels were changed. The rubber mat is gone.

Wow! That engine is indeed all original. What are you plans with the car?
My 72, had the exact same Engine, brings back a lot of great memories.
Thanks for sharing this with us.
