This is the car I was thinking about, but didn’t want to suggest it needs a restoration. :-)

Though it was a nice restoration especially considering it was done in the previous restorers garage and he was not a professional. Unfortunately there were just too many reproduction parts, incorrect colors, pitting in the frame that was not body worked, etc and the new owner said he wanted it perfect so off we go.

The next level :-)

This specific car in my opinion is the pinnacle 1970 Chevelle. (That is my opinion only)

To find one with better options, history, documentation one would need a flux capacitor.

Thank you Charley. Chris mentioned something about there possibly being a washer under the head bolts and this confirms it. Do you have any photos of the exhaust and intake bolts? I believe the intake are the same as in all BB aluminum but was insure on the exhaust as normal BB bolts have a special thread and was not sure they used those on the aluminum heads as well. Thanks again.
