    How to verify a TRUE SS?

    I have been looking for one for a while and found one that I want but the price just seems too good so I am suspicious...

    I am not sure how to verify that the car started as an actual SS, please help!

    Thanks in advance!

    Also, if you want to confirm any SLP factory alterations to the car, the RPO code Y2Y will also be on that sticker, with the actual SLP alteration sticker being affixed to the passenger's side door.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    I put a deposit on it after verifying that it was a true SS and pick it up soon. I don't think its an SLP car but thats okay with me.

    All 4th gen SS's went to SLP for the Z28 to SS transformation. If any SLP options were ordered, a separate sticker may be on the passenger door listing them.

    My true SS did not have any SLP options therefore no pass door sticker.

    Another quick tip is to look at the "tire" sticker on the driver door jamb. Only true SS's got 17" wheels. Everyone else got 16".

    Thanks!

    It's actually a very good little tip. Even if someone "replaces" the RPO sticker, they wouldn't think to replace the "tire size" sticker.

    Hi All,

    Just brought home a '99 SS that's got me all puzzled??

    Badged as an SS.... but has a B4C code... SS hood, (SLP) exhaust, 17" SS wheels (16" door jam tag) ect...

    Signs of a former roll cage...

    Any guesses?

    Sorry, can't post attachments yet

    Thanks!

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Sounds like a clone and a possible former race car. B4C is a cop car...

    Yeah... I did some research on the b4c.... it's a navy-28U, one of 35. someone spent a load of money to make this an SS clone. Just kind of puzzling....

    X2. Clone. Did you get "charged" for an "SS"?

    No.... I did some "horse trading" on this one..... I was a little uncomfortable... but wow! What a nice car!
    Only now trying to thoruoghly check it out the car. I wanted a WS6 awhile ago... but this fell in my lap.
    Not disappointed... just trying to figure out what it is?

    B4C's got things normal cars didn't like 1LE brakes. There's a thread or 2 on this floating around here somewhere.

    Interesting. The 1LE's are somewhat of a rare beast by themselves, more so than an SS, so either way you got a neat car.

    How do you know if your wheels are 17" and both of your doors have been replaced, in which is my case? I do have a plate on the motor with the car # is that proof enough?

    If you're trying to figure out if your car is a real SS and the doors got replaced, just call SLP and have your VIN handy.

    As for the wheels, only 10 spokes came in 17" and only SS's got them.

    Hope that helps.

    The 5 spoke ZR1's were also an SS exclusive in 17". The 10 spokers didn't show up until some point around 2001.
