I perform all the body and mechanical work myself and have done many of these cars over the past 25 years. I can answer any questions just ask. The pictures I posted are new I just shot them today.

The motor has been rebuilt to original specs 350 HP and has 30k miles on it since.

The car has power steering and upgraded highoutput alternator along with Pertronix ignition system.
The transmission is a four speed Muncie M20, there are no issues it works fine. The driveshaft has new U joints .

No dents and no rust. All doors open and close nicely and gaps are good. Less than 1 quart or body filler was use on the entire car and most of that was block sanded away.
The entire suspension system is new, the front suspension is new aftermarket everything is new. The ball joints, idler arms, upper and lower A arms, springs, shims, sway bars etc. The rear suspension is currently BMR tubular with poly bushing and grease fittings. I still have the original stamped rear suspension and it goes with the car. The front and rear springs are new, the front springs are lowered to give the car a better stance. All the body mounts are new as are all the suspension bushings. The Firestone 500 tires are new as are the KYB shocks.
Entire car was stripped to bare metal and coated in PPG epoxy primer. Car was then covered with three coats of 2k primer which was block sanded and then that process was repeated three separate times until the car was straight. Once the car was straight 3 coats of Marina Blue base Blue was put on followed by 3 coats of PPG clearcoat. Car was then wet sanded with 2000 grit paper and color sanded and buffed out. Paint is excellent and car is very straight. Entire care has less than half a quart of body filler in it just to hide the welds and low spots. Entire car was painted both sides of the fenders, both sides of the hood, both sides of the trunk lid. The entire floor was painted with Eastwood rubberized rust encapsulator. There is no exposed metal on this car, it is painted everywhere so it will never rust.

The frame was blasted and new body mounts were welded in place. The entire frame is solid with no issues, it has been painted outside with POR15 and the inside of the entire frame is painted with Eastwood Green Zinc Frame coating. This frame will never rust.
Car has original exhaust manifolds with Flowmaster mufflers, no leaks just a good basic dual exhaust system. Not too loud.
Car has a new front wiring harness, the battery is new as is the starter and ignition system. There are no blown fuses or issues with the electrical system. All lights, horns, reverse lights, radio etc. works. No blown fuses. I currently don’t have the console clock hooked up because it drains the battery over the winter.

It is a very solid real SS chevelle with nice options and fun to drive. Everything is done on it so it is a turnkey car with no issues.On Mar-27-16 at 06:19:51 PDT, seller added the following information:
This car has a clean MASS. title and it titled as an SS as it should be. Also I posted pics of the VIN tag and Cowl tag on Photobucket link I set up.On Mar-27-16 at 18:28:58 PDT, seller added the following information:
Someone asked what the car looked like before I started. It actually did not look that bad from 30 feet away. It was the same color blue when I bought it but underneath it was green which according to the Cowl tag was the original color. I liked the Marina Blue so I repainted it that color. The car had a lot of body filler on it when I sanded it down and also a lot of rust on the floors, passenger side fender so that is why I replaced them with new sheet metal. I owned the car and drove it for 2 years before I decided to restore it.On Mar-28-16 at 13:06:05 PDT, seller added the following information:
