COLLECTOR, #'S MATCH 396, AUTO, A/C, SE TRICENT., DOCUMENTS, EXC ALL OVER, A+++!

This one is probably for the true collectors. A 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS with a numbers-matching L34 big block is already a tantalizing proposition, but have you checked out the paint? This is actually a special edition car specially ordered for Charleston, SC's tricentennial celebration. So far you only need your hands to count the number of known survivors, and this coupe has a ton of the right paperwork to prove it!

Let's put aside for a moment that we've only been able to locate eight of these special edition cars in the world right now. Instead, just look at the gold paint on this coupe. There's an amazing shimmer over an exceptionally crisp body, and that's no accident. The paint needs to be right because the 927-98457 code for the golden hue is special for the SC Tricentennial Edition, and we even have multiple build sheets that tells this tale. So, with a car this special, we understand why over $100K has been invested in restoring this Chevelle back to day one specs. You see the quality work in the big items like the pristine white vinyl roof, and the mirror-like chrome bumpers. And the details are all there, too, like the panel gaps that are so good that the doors close effortlessly, and how the profile easily shows off its Coke-bottle curves with its unbroken style lines. So while 1970 is often considered the ultimate year for owing a Chevelle, having an exceptionally rare factory-prepared specialty model SS is the way to always be the king amongst all muscle car royalty.

The ivory interior is a great complementing color to the special gold paint, which makes peeking into this hardtop a must for most Chevy enthusiasts. And when they look inside, they won't be disappointed. This six-passenger rapid express has all of great Malibu textures, as well as the correct SS badging on the door and steering wheel. The restoration budget was splurged here to make sure everything is looking its best (remember, the goal is to look like the day this very special coupe left the Atlanta factory.) You can use the dealer invoice to check off all the original features that are still in place - from the AM radio, to the factory air conditioning that's still blowing cold to keep everyone comfortable.

Yes, that is the original numbers-matching big-block V8 you see in the pictures. While the car was called the SS 396, the motor actually displaced 402 cubic-inches from the factory. If that wasn't enough, this coupe was optioned with the desirable L34 package. The V8 was advertised at a dominating 350 hp, and every bit of it makes one heck of a rumble from the dual exhaust. But that's not the real reason why you love it so much. The restoration photos tell a story of a nut-n-bolt rejuvenation, and you can see the product in the engine bay that looks correct in everything from the orange on the block, to the stickers on the fan shroud, to the top of the battery. Then you look at the undercarriage photos, and we bet you're wondering if you've ever seen such a clean car before (you can even see the factory-style markings on the driveshaft!) Everything is so precise, you even get correct reproduction Goodyear Polyglas tires on color-matched SS Mag wheels. It's so clean, and there's only 330 miles on it since completion. But even if this special Chevelle is amazingly factory fresh, features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes will mean you won't be able to resist plenty of joyrides.

Remember, you get documentation like the factory buildsheets, dealer invoice, original bill of sale, and warranty card to showcase how unique this Chevelle is. And then there are a ton of restoration recipes to back up the quality everyone can already see. This is a dream car for a true collector. Don't miss what could be a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity...call today!!
