This is the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS we all dream about. A believed to be real Super Sport, in the factory colors, that has had big money spent on bright paint, a complete bucket seat interior, strong stick shift, and a thundering big block V8. So read on for all the details, but you already know the wait for your perfect muscle machine is over.
The ’70 Chevelle has one-year only unique elements that has made it the prized possession for many of us big power enthusiasts. So when you find one in stunning and factory-correct Cranberry Red, it’s attraction is even further amplified. But the appeal of this one goes well beyond investing in the right color and a professional hand applying it. The white SS stripe package is painted on to give an even shine that’s highlighted further over the super-straight sheetmetal. And details like the trim, window rubber, and headlights confidently stand up to scrutiny. But more than just getting the fundamentals right, this coupe is pure desire on wheels thanks to all the aggressive details. After all, you’ll love arriving everywhere with the hood pins and genuine cowl induction hood boldly leading the way. And there’s correct SS badging everywhere – from the blacked-out grille, to the form-hugging rear bumper, to the correct Mag-style sport wheels.
A factory-correct Ivory interior (code 791) is a great way to get a premium appearance while retaining that factory-correct style. And it always looks the best when the exterior stripe color is a preview of what you see inside. The bucket seats are armchair comfortable, and everything has the correct insignia button trim. The pristine color is easy to maintain because the vinyl cleans up in a snap, so feel free to take family and friend along for the ride without a worry. But you really don’t need anyone else to have fun in this Chevelle. It’s set up for the driver with the dual-spoke SS steering wheel that gives you a clear view at the U14 round gauge panel. One of the best investments in the interior was spent rebuilding the gauges, including the tach. After all, that one’s very important when paired with the Hurst shifter.
All the horsepower you’ll be enjoying is compliments of a thundering 454 cubic-inch big block V8. The motor is a ’72 replacement block – likely rectifying some of the high-horsepower adventures these Chevelle SS coupes received in their first years. In fact, any midnight racer past has been erased thanks to a complete engine rebuild in May 2017. It was put together with all the correct components. That’s why you have the shining valve covers and the bold orange block radiating from within the glossy black engine bay. But the part that real enthusiasts will point at is the air grabber. It’s surrounded by the proper rubber gasket that gives you the vacuum-operated true cowl induction hood. Best of all, there’s only about 75 miles on this coupe since completion, so you get to be part of breaking it in! The big V8 inhales deeply through the four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with the great big block authority out of the H-pipe dual exhaust. You get complete control of the powerhouse and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. And yes, the transmission and clutch were rebuilt/replaced at the same time as the motor to ensure the best in performance. No matter if you use this SS for intimidation or a Sunday cruiser, you’ll appreciate nice driving features such as the power steering, front disc brakes, Positraction rear, and the grip of BF Goodrich tires.
The sale comes with a folder full of receipts, so you can see just how much time and money it took to get this Chevelle to this outstanding condition. These prove that your dream muscle machine is also an amazing deal. Don’t miss out, call today!
