Default Guaranty Chevrolet Santa Ana, Ca.

I recently purchased a 1970 Chevelle SS that according to the NCRS documents was delivered to Guaranty Chevrolet. I'm trying to track some history on the car and was hoping someone might be from the area from back in the day. The car is somewhat unique in that it was a special order paint car 926-99616 Hugger Orange and was supposedly raced from early in it's life. Although the original engine and transmission are long gone it has some signs of possibly being an LS6. It's a Van Nuys car built late in June of 1970 it still has the correct date coded CRW 4.10 rear axle, 6500 redline tach and single fuel line. It had a roll cage installed at one point and was said to have migrated to the Laurel, Mississippi area. It's a long shot but you never know what someone may remember. Thanks

Guaranty Chevrolet is in Santa Ana on 17th St. My wife used to work there. It was owned by the Hamlin family. My nephews went to school with their kids...


I remember a yellow LS6 from Eddie Hopper in Garden Grove, but not an Orange one, sorry!

Just checking back hoping for more on this one.
Cool Lynn worked @ Guaranty Chev Bruce, does she know if they kept any old records?
If any of the lads mentioned in the linked Super Chevy article are still around, they may know more about what Orange Spec Paint '70 'Velles Guaranty Chev ordered/delivered?
Is the subject car a stick or auto also have you exhausted all chances of a build sheet?
Love to see/hear more about it including which paint reference used on the TT?
Here's a 2015 Mecum sale link w/ yet another Guaranty delivered Orange '70 'Velle but this one an L78 car...

Not much to look at in it's present state. Has a 396 and 700R4 automatic in it now. Originally a bench seat 4-speed with Black interior. Someone has cut the cage out and no luck on a build sheet. The couple of Van Nuys Chevelles I've owned in the past I've found the sheet on top of the fuel tank. This car has had a fuel cell in it at some point so I'm guessing it was found years ago and thrown away or the tank in the car no is not original to the car. I'll post up a couple pictures when I get a moment.

Sounds cool. VN 70s also tended to have sheets tucked away in the lower seat springs and in the rear seat. Any luck there?
