What makes a 1972 Chevy SS El Camino a true SS?

What makes it a true SS is that it came from the factory as an

SS. Beware of a clone. Many a standard El Camino has been turned

into an SS and sold as a authentic one. The VIN # will tell you if

this one is for real. The SS package was only available on the

Custom Pickup and included a special instrumentation panel with a

black steering wheel and column and an "SS" hub emblem. It also

included 15x7 inch sport wheels, F60x15 white-lettered bias ply

tires, a sports-type remote control outside body colored rearview

mirror, power disc brakes, and high output battery. Interestingly,

only the LS5 carried external engine ID; they carried "SS 454"

badges. All others only said "SS." So beware of fakes.
