my 1970 ELKY project has A/C and when I purchased the car it had a 350 SBC from an 81 car installed in it, the car had caught fire Engine compartment only. With going through the car I cannot find a build sheet but everything I am seeing in it points to an SS what engine could it be with a factory installed A/C

The cowl tag should tell you what engine was original.

Post that and we can help decode.

Built 4th week of september - final number is just something that refers back to build sheet I believe
nothing on this tag would verify a SS model

I'm reasonably sure that in 70
  • all SS cars were big blocks.
  • all big blocks had 12 bolt rears
  • no rear sway bar in the el camino
  • posi was optional
  • with AC I think you would have to have the 350 hp 396
  • short of a build sheet or other documentation (such as engine suffix) there is no reliable way to ID a SS in 1970

that's pretty much what I have come up with as well I have been looking around and all I have come to is 396/350HP as well. the car is 12bolt it does have posi, no signs of having trailer hitch. I have looked all over for build sheet but have had no luck as of yet.
