Default 1970 Canadian Built Chevelle Extremely Documented

This is my first post. Hope this the right section to post.
In 1997 I began a search for a 1970 Chevelle SS. Found one in HMN. Talked to the owner and she said...It's 8K firm. Offered her $7,955.00 because according to her husband it needed the cowl induction valve. Her husband said, "That's your problem." Paid the 8K and drove the chevelle from MA to VA and it ran like a champ. They had not stepped on the gas hard enough to make the cowl induction open.
Unless proven wrong this is the best documented Chevelle there is. Documentation includes:
(1) Retail Order for a motor vehicle form
(2) Invoice
(3) 3 Line Tags (Canadian for built sheets)
(4) GM of Canada proof of options
(5) Receipts for paying it cash
(6) Original Window Sticker
(7) Receipt for paying MA taxes
(8) Maitenance records from May of 1970 to the day it was sold in 1997.
Mileage for this Chevelle has been documented from 5.1 miles until today. A computer generated form from 1970 show how the owner documented the mileage. A log book was used to document the mileage, and the following information was logged in:
(1) Date
(2) Mileage
(3) Price per gallon
(4) Amount purchased
(5) Octane of gasoline puchased
(6) Location of gas station
(7) Any repairs performed on the Chevelle.
Ownwer clearly remembers throwing away the POP, but there are seven POPs swiped on warranty repairs and the POP information is clear as day light.

Currently Chevelle is going a full frame restoration. All parts are correct and plated accordingly.
Must of the Maryland Chevelle Club guys have seen the documentation, to include Al Galdi, Bill Rose, Rick E., Chuck Hanson, Chris White, and others.

Here is a link to the resto.

Thanks for the welcome...guys. I have been buying and selling Chevelle/Camaro parts to be able to bring some additional income to help with the restoration. Might become a member so I can sell some parts here. I'm already making plans to attend the show in Chicago. Had to cancell this year due to wife partial knee replacement.
