My 1970 SS has very low miliage (26,000) and is supposedly all original and mostly unmolested. That said, the engine has chrome valve covers and the breather lid is also chrome. I don't beleive these are original to the car.
The guy I bought the car from says he did not put them on and he doesn't believe the previous owner would have either...the previous owner was a freind of his and was one who liked to keep his cars original. However, his freind (the previous owner) did not buy the car new but bought it in 1976 and bought as more of a cruiser/driver (owned the car for 20 years and put 16,000 miles on it) than to be part of his garaged collection.
So can any of the knowledgeable folks here tell me definitively whether these peices are original or not? Here are a couple of pictures.
Thanks for your help.
