THANKS FOR GETTING BACK TO ME ON THE TAG DECODING ON MY CAR. I HAVE A TOUGH TIME BELIEVING THAT THIS CAR IS NOT AN RS FROM ONE OF THE REPLIES THAT CLAIMS X44 AUTOMATICALLY RULES OUT IT BEING AN RS. THE CAR WAS ORIGINALLY HUGGER ORANGE, HAS ALL THE RS TRIM AND PARTS, ETC... AS WELL AS THE INTERIOR HAS THE CONSOLE, CLOCK, ETC... I GUESS WHERE I'M GOING WITH THIS IS THAT EITHER SOMEONE WENT TO GREAT LEAPS AND BOUNDS TO CHANGE THIS OR ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT THEY NEVER BUILT AN X44 RS???

Well have you checked out the information for yourself?
Check out this site....
It appears to me the X44 was a only base car, aka plain jane. If it was the Z22 rally sport, than it was supposed to be X11 on the cowl tag. Those X codes alerted the workers how to deck out the car and the line workers would have all had to place the wrong trim on the car, highly unlikely it would make it thru wiht all the right parts if it was a X44.
You would suprised the lengths persons will go thru to make a clone, I have friend who acquired this plain jane 70 chevelle from his Aunt, in the last 10 yrs he has parted about 25 70-72 Chevelles, adding a lot of things to his car, like PS, PB, tinted glass, SS hood, HD suspension, tilt wheel, 12 bolt etc, TH350 (from a powerglide).

Guaranteed not an original RS car.
Also guarantee that the holes for the backup lights are cut out, not stamped out like they are at the factory.
It's not *that* hard to convert a car to a RS, not that I'd recommend the work. http://www.camaros.net/forum/smile.gif
RS affected nothing in the interior other than the little emblem on the steering wheel.
