Basically the few differences are:

Grill
Rear body panel
Interior door panels(woodgrain)
Steering wheel
Hood has chrome vents(fake but look like vents)
SS models have disc brakes up front
Wheels?

There may be more, but this is what I can think of at this moment.Here's a picture of mine. I'm happy with it. The fact they are clones doesn't change the fact that they are still great cars.

There is nothing rong with building a clone as long as you don't try to sell it off as the real thing. My Chevelle is a SS clone, so what. It is MY CAR and I am not selling it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:waving:
