CORRECT SS EQUIPMENT, PERIOD CORRECT 396, 4 SPEED TRANS, BUCKETS W/ CONSOLE
Popular cars are popular for a good reason, and while there are a lot of 1970 Chevelles around, it's a fact that we just can't seem to keep them in stock. And when they're like this one and pack a period correct big block, a 4-speed, and an awesome color combination like this SS396, well, you really should be picking up the phone right now, because like I said, these just don't last very long.
Code 25 Astro Blue isn't commonly seen, but it's one of the most attractive of all Chevelle colors. Sure, red ones get a lot of attention, but blue ones seem to have no problems winning trophies at the big shows and bringing top dollar at auction, so why not put one in your garage? All the right ingredients are here, including straight, clean sheetmetal, a cowl-induction hood, and proper white SS stripes. A lot of guys prefer cars without vinyl tops, and that's how this one came from the factory, so it has a clean, sleek look that suits the SS perfectly. The bright blue paint has received plenty of attention and shines up beautifully, making this the kind of car you'll spend all day detailing, then look forward to hitting the road for some fun behind the wheel. It's not perfect, of course, but this is a car that will definitely generate attention wherever it goes. The chrome is excellent, the stainless is shiny, and all the glass offers that vintage Soft-Ray tint that's virtually impossible to duplicate today.
Black buckets alongside a center console practically define the Chevelle SS. Everything inside was probably replaced when it was restored a few years ago, including the seat covers, carpets, headliner, and even the gauges, which include a correct tachometer and clock. The lenses are a little faded, but that's not really a big deal and easy to fix. There's also a correct steering wheel, a Hurst shifter for the 4-speed manual gearbox, and an AM/FM/cassette head unit that fits pretty well. There's nothing revolutionary here, just a clean, functional SS that has a great look already baked in by the factory. The trunk has also been finished in spatter paint and includes a full-sized spare tire.
Nicely detailed, the 396 cubic inch V8 under the cowl-induction hood has a correct 3969854 casting number, which indicates a 1969-1972 396/402 block. Up top there's a QuadraJet carburetor on a factory intake, so it has the right look, and the chrome air cleaner and valve covers look great against the bright Chevy Orange paint. And as good as it looks, it runs even better, with a fat torque curve and that RIGHT NOW hit of big torque at any speed. It fires up instantly, idles smoothly, and pulls with ferocity, plus with that 4-speed transmission, it's a real pleasure out on the open road. Long-tube headers and a correct dual exhaust system give it a wonderful basso-profundo soundtrack, the floors are in good order, and there's a heavy duty 12-bolt rear hanging out back. Correct 14-inch SS wheels are fitted with recent 215/70/14 front and 245/60/14 rear BFG T/A radials.
Looking great and ready to rock, this extremely clean Chevelle SS delivers big block thrills in the most popular year of the most popular car. If you're still reading this, it might already be too late. Call now!
