I found a project car that could possibly be an RS/SS. Has the heater core hoses comiing from the center, big block cross member, front disc brakes etc. Need to know what else I can look for to verify this was a real RS/SS. It has no motor, and the rear end has been changed to a Ford 9", so can't use the numbers from those locations. I am aware of the dual exhaust plate on the drivers side rear frame, but haven't seen it yet. Anything else ? I'm going to look at it this weekend, and would like some more info.

Thx

You can see detailed RS identification (RPO Z22) here: http://www.camaros.org/options.shtml#id

That same page shows the dual exhaust reinforcement plate on the driver side rear frame rail for all 69 coupes; an SS coupe must have the plate.

An SS must have an SS domed hood with the correct 28 coil hood springs, an often overlooked detail when "cloning": http://www.camaros.org/underhood.shtml

When you say BB crossmember, do you mean the tubular TH400 crossmember (only used on SS396 cars), or the offset, angle cutout crossmember only used for SS396 4-speed cars?

Also, if the car has OE dual fuel lines, it was a Q-Jet equipped car and could only be an LM1, SS350, SS396/325, or SS396/350.

If it is an OE 4-speed car, with the stamped/punched speedo cable hole under the wiper motor and cable routing clamps across the top of the tunnel and down the passenger side, it was a Muncie equipped car.

An SS396 car would have had the tailpan blacked out around the taillights, so you can look for OE blackout paint along the rear trunk lip and behind the rear bumper.

If the OE radiator is present, there are certain codes used for those: http://www.camaros.org/coolingsystems.shtml
