I just bought this car and am curious as to whether it is an SS. Either way it was a good deal for the shape and condition. VIN as follows: 124379N556100
ST 69 12437 NOR 194941 BDY
TR 711 65BPNT
Power Disc Brakes, looks like a supply and return fuel line, multileaf rear, 10 bolt cover, standard interior, olympic gold exterior. First week of Dec. Norwood car so no X codes. Am I missing something obvious? Please help!

All I can tell you is that it had an 8 cyl.engine.Disc brake's multi-leaf spring's & dual fuel line's a + for a SS,10 bolt rear possible.
NOTHING LIKE A 69 !!!!!

If it's the original 10 bolt rear, 99% chance it is not an SS. Check the codes and dates on the rear before assuming it's the original. The other options sound like an SS, but not the 10 bolt.

A return line indicates a Q-jet car. That, together with the multi-leafs indicates a 350 engine. The date means the 350 would be either a LM1 or L48. We don't know of any LM1's with 10-bolts, in any transmission, but we do have data that indicates that at least some 69 SS-350 powerglide cars came with multi-leaf 10-bolts.
What is the tranny?
The brakes are the right type for SS, but aren't definitive. (Necessary but not sufficient.)
Check for other physical evidence including tire sticker, hood springs, and dual exhaust hanger reinforcements on both rear frame rails.
