BEST YEAR/BEST COLOR COMBO, 350 CRATE V8, AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKES, LONGTUBE/DUALS
The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle is one of those cars with universal appeal. Paint it gloss black with white SS stripes, stuff a muscle-bound small block under the hood, and give it a lowered stance and you have one heck of a Saturday night special.
High-visibility cars like this demand high-quality workmanship. Rolling around in a Chevelle SS sends a message, and when it's basic black the message is all about performance. Sure, we've all seen the ones at the local shows with wavy bodywork and dusty paint, but when you set out to build an icon, you do it right. As a result, this one has bodywork that reflects cleanly, which is only the result of hours of time and big piles of cash being spent at the body shop. Gaps are quite good, the cowl induction hood fits well, and nobody's going to know what's living under the hood just by looking at it. White SS stripes are painted on, not decals, and all the correct badging and emblems have been installed. Shiny chrome bumpers sparkle against the glossy black paint, along with bright stainless trim around the windows and wheel arches. A black vinyl top adds a touch of formality but it stays in the background, as you'd expect on a black car.
Bucket seats and Chevy muscle go together like ice cream and apple pie. This one sports a pair of correct buckets flanking a factory console, an upgrade from the original bench that was installed by the factory. Both the front and rear seat covers are correct reproductions that fit well and look great, showing only minor signs of use and no defects. Correct SS door panels were fitted, along with fresh carpets, so it feels quite new inside. Factory instruments cover only the basics and the wide speedometer tells you that this likely wasn't a born real SS, but at this point does it even matter? The original AM radio is gone, replaced by a newer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit and they did the console right, complete with a horseshoe shifter. The trunk is tidy and clean, needing only a reproduction mat to look right.
A 350 cubic inch crate motor nestles right into the Chevelle's engine bay, and with a few modest bolt-on performance parts, it moves like a welterweight prizefighter on the street. The block is nicely dressed in Chevy Orange, with a bare aluminum Edelbrock intake and a few chrome dress-up bits, and the idle suggests a fairly substantial cam lives inside. A QFT 4-barrel carb lives under that open-element air cleaner, and the aluminum valve covers add a combat-ready look. A chrome alternator provides plenty of juice, and long-tube headers feed a dual exhaust system that exhales through oval tips under the rear valence. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission snaps off shifts like a drill sergeant snaps off salutes and feeds a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end. Power steering and power brakes make it effortless to handle and take a good look at how clean those floors are; nice, right? Staggered 225/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials complete the rolling stock.
Fast, handsome, and with a few tricks up its sleeve, this Chevelle is the kind of car we all hope to own someday and the price sure is right. Call now!
