I bought an American Glory 71 Chevelle, among 6 other JLs today at HL. on the sides of the car, it has the SS then 454 below the SS on the front fender. HA, 70 was the last year of the chevelle that had the engine size right below the SS on the fender. just though id share :)

still a cool looking car!

The 71 and 72 has SS with 454 below it if it had a 454. The small block (350 cid) cars had no engine emblem under the SS emblem.

The 396 (402 cid) was not available in 1971 and 1972, so you should never see a 71 or 72 SS with 396 emblems on it.

1971: The 402 engine that was previously still known as a 396 was renamed the "Turbo Jet 400" and offered only 300bhp, down from 3500bhp. The 375bhp version was no longer available

1972: 402 to 240bhp

I Have Owned 5 Different Year Chevelles Including A 71 And Midtown Is Correct On This One. If You Ever Have Questions On This Sort Of Issues Year One In My Opinion Is The Best Reference Guide You Can Get. But, When It Comes To 67-69 Camaros Just Email John Hooper ( Jhoop302 ) Hell I Think He Writes The Manuals. This Guy Is Amazing.

See Ya At Fest, Z-11

Had a 70 with a 307, and my brother had a 72 with a 350, both back in high school. Mine was a total and complete pile. He had his girlfriend's dad build him a nice street motor for his...
