I was at Hershey on Saturday & I did see this car, if I remember correctly, it is Black. As Charley would say "This post is useless without pics". I also saw a 71 Chevelle Malibu Convt. 350 4-speed, bucket seats A/C, positraction, sandalwood w/saddle interior.

The judge may not have been too incorrect, but he probably didn't know it. M20 through various years could also refer to the Saginaw 4 speed trans, particularly after 1974 when Muncie stopped making transmissions. Basically, M20 referred to a wide ratio, 4 speed transmission.

Viz, perhaps this will help. I came across this 1969 photo while restoring our 69 Yenko Chevelle with an M21. You can clearly see the Muncie stamped shifter handle in the photo. Hope this helps.

Here's a link to the GM Heritage Center sales brochure for a 69 Chevelle:

https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/doc...t-Chevelle.pdf

on the second to last page is a shot of the interior with the Muncie shifter, although the Muncie is hard to see. Someone may have a higher rez photo. The shape of the shifter is correct for a Muncie.

Yes, the black one is mine. Is it OK to post pictures in this thread? Wouldn’t really be a highjack?

Thank you all for the pictures and links, I think we're in good shape now. Sincerely appreciate it !
I don't know if it's OK to post pictures here, and I will move them if requested, so here are a few of the car. I ordered it new, it brought each of my newborn sons home from the hospital in the 70's, was stored away in 1981 with 170,000+ miles and the original clutch and entire drivetrain which it still retains, as well as all of the original dated mechanical components. Restoration started in 2017, completed this Spring.
