Buy of the Day, 1970 Chevelle SS396 vs 1970 Chevelle SS

I hate complicated choices, but when it comes to buying a car, we all have to weigh up the pros and cons between a bunch of vehicles.

Here we have two seemingly similar 1970 Chevelle 396 SS rides.

The 70s blue Chevelle – a numbers correct LS6 454-/450HP, may have been a COPO, but no documented proof, barn find with full restoration.

The blue Chevelle says in small print,
‘Also included in car sale is a date correct GM CE code replacement 396/375 L78 Block w/std. bore and in nice shape. ‘
‘Car is registered in the L78 Registry.’….hmmm!

Both have less than 24 hours before auction end (as of 8th May 2015), so if you are interested in the ride(s), you have to decide pretty quick.
