Hello,

I have a '70 2800CS (VIN 2270377, 3Jul1970 manufacture date). I've read that gas tanks changed after '70 model cars. Does anyone know what production date marked the change? I'm interested in the tank above; but, I'm not sure it's correct for my car. Thanks in advance for your help.

@HB Chris can confirm. There are a bunch of tanks. I bet you can tell visually if you look at the depth. The opening is the same AFAIK, but the early tank is more shallow. I *think.

Motor and transmission sold, with driveshaft. Diff still available. I will walk Vitaliy through identification. Not sure if it is an LSD. Given the other mods I wouldn’t be surprised!

Hi Folks,

Vitaliy has access to a cheap/free transport to Sacramento. For any california buyers, he can do smaller (fit in the truck) parts for free. The chassis can be trucked down there discounted.

I have contacts in the bay that will run small parts.

Just want to say, Vitaly is a cool dood and very very fair. Do not hesitate to buy from him. I just did. ;)

Those seats look very very nice. Hopefully someone will pick them up, even tho they're the early style, they'd fit any year.

Glad you got a reply. Crickets for days here now and i'm local and ready to buy.
I forwarded your text Steve. He should still have those. Your text may have been lost in the fold. It has been crazy for both of us.
