I have a few sets of those alum slot mags. I have polished a set or two. Just never put them on yet.

Wheels and rolling stock can really change the look and can be easily put back to original so no harm to value as its only bolt on change and not permanent.

I have a 71 that may be up for Grabs, this is how I bought it off E-bay. Bought new side windows interior etc but never got to it. I think it needs some rims though????

I assume that is Shadow Gray paint? What was the original color? Is that a Blue Bench seat in the car?
Nice looking Chevelle

I like that color, reminds me of Pewter. I was going to do mine Pewter with the Black interior. mine was originally a bench seat car. It came Camaro Gold ( forgot the code) from the factory with Black interior and HD suspension, 10 bolt non-posi.

Autumn Gold, Harvest Gold or Dessert Sand

Autumn Gold being the most popular.

I think its a Range Rover colour, I have the paint code on a small bottle that was in the car. Haven't looked at the vin close enough to figure out the original colour.  I would call it a graphite gray. Ya it has a blue bench seat in it. I bought all new black interior for it and have black buckets. The car originally had black seats but previous owner scooped the seats for his project. Got too busy this summer, it was supposed to be a back yard project putting in the new interior etc.... drove all the way to Massachusetts to pick it up, its gone as far as moving from my shop to my back yard garage

I sent the VIN off to GM. I will have to look for the documents. I think it may have been Autumn Gold. Does the fact that it was a Camaro Gold have any significance, or that it was ordered with HD suspension?

I will see if I can find the GM docs on it.
