1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Additional Info:

This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is an awful lot of car for the money. It packs a strong-running 502, gorgeous paint, and a beautifully finished interior. There's always a lot of talk about matching numbers when discussing these cars, but that completely overlooks the fact that these cars are a ton of fun to drive, look awesome, and nice ones with great options are still out there for affordable prices. Originally code 45 Green Mist, they went a little more modern by giving it a glowing coat of Corvette Atomic Orange with black SS stripes. Bodywork is excellent throughout, with great gaps and a smooth finish thanks to hours and hours of block sanding before a drop of paint was sprayed. Look how nicely those quarters fit, the smooth, unbroken line that runs from nose to tail, and the gaps on the doors; this car was put together very carefully. 1970 is arguably the most popular year for Chevelles, both now and when they were new, and the look never goes out of style. Four headlights up front frame a black SS grille, while out back, a red-rimmed rub strip with SS emblems highlights the bumper. Hood pins, a cowl induction hood, and a wicked stance all say this is a car that's not to be messed with. I don't care what you're driving, you're going to think twice when this thumping big block Chevelle rolls up next to you.Inside, this one has had a full makeover, including a set of black factory buckets with a custom console featuring a trick shifter for the TH400 3-speed automatic underneath. The original gauges are gone, replaced by a full set of Dakota Digital units that look fantastic. The dash has been modified for the touch-screen AM/FM/CD/iPod/Bluetooth/navigation system in the center and custom kick panels feature powerful speakers and there's a big subwoofer in back. Custom bass controls on the console will let you determine how much pounding your ears can take. The dash pad and door panels also got an upgrade to match, and the restorer went the extra mile to get everything right by including fresh black seat belts as well. This car was originally equipped with A/C, and today it is fully functional and has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant thanks to Vintage Air hardware and a digital control panel. The trunk is beautifully finished with custom panels and yes, a big bottle of nitrous.The engine is a 502 inch crate motor that's been built for combat. Nicely detailed at the time of restoration, it shows some signs of use, but will still show well at the local cruise night. As I mentioned, there's A/C with modern components, and performance upgrades include an Edelbrock intake manifold, Holley carburetor, MSD ignition and an electric fuel pump to free up a few ponies. There's a lot of carbon fiber to give it a high-tech look and a serpentine belt drive system for the accessories ensures reliability. That potent big block is ably supported by a TH400 3-speed automatic turning a durable 12-bolt rear end. Showing signs of clean living, the chassis is in great condition and the exhaust system features long-tube headers, Flowmaster mufflers, and cool rectangular tips. 4-wheel disc brakes from a C5 Corvette offer awesome stopping power and look great through the spokes of those 20-inch wheels with 255/35/20 front and 275/35/20 rear radials.If you've been watching the market thinking that big block Chevelles were suddenly being priced out of reach, guess again. With good bones, a nice restoration, and no secrets, this Chevelle simply couldn't be duplicated for the asking price. Call today!
