The mighty Chevelle is one of Americas all-time automotive success stories. Its a straight-forward, badass muscle car which is just as well regarded now that it populates classic car fields as it was decades ago when it populated dealer showrooms. Just last year, the SS 454 came very close to winning General Motors factory sponsored vote for the ultimate Chevrolet for the divisions first hundred years. And when you take a close look at a gem like this pristine Mist Green coupe, youll understand exactly why. As an inherently scarce real-deal Super Sport, documented numbers matching, this awesome bowtie is 1 of only 3 Flint assembled units listed on the national LS6 Registry. Additionally, it wraps an accurately detailed drivetrain and a long list of original, correct and rare components in a mostly original all-GM body. And, when you add in the fact that its fully documented and fresh out of a hundred point rotisserie restoration, you get one incredible, investment grade classic thats quite possibly the last of its kind. If youre looking for solid Chevelle attitude, but want something thats unique enough to make even the most jaded gearhead stop and stare, THIS is the car for you!

According to the aforementioned window sticker, this clean muscle car was originally shipped from GMs storied Flint manufacturing facility to Casey Chevrolet in Chicopee, Massachusetts where it began a 42 year journey to our RK Motors Charlotte showroom. When the previous owner acquired the car it was a rare, super clean survivor that, while nice, was in need of a minor freshening. So, he decided to subject it to a no-expense-spared, no-holds barred rotisserie restoration which resulted in the concours level show stopper you see today. The professional restorers began by completely stripping the all-original body, welding up one new GM-supplied quarter panel and massaging every one of the cars surfaces to near perfection. Once those panels were as straight and flat as possible, the smooth fuselage was disassembled, layered in a correct coat of GM code 45 Mist Green urethane and decorated with spotless black war paint. And the result is one arrow-straight classic which displays a super-reflective finish, possesses few imperfections and exists as a stunning muscle car that will likely never lose its crowd gathering appeal.
Aesthetically, many enthusiasts believe the 70 Chevelle introduced a host of excellent refinements which transformed the good design of Chevrolets 69 model into something great. At the front of this pastel pavement pounder youll find a familiar crossbar grille which hangs a fresh and prominent SS emblem between a small CHEVELLE script, four chrome-seated T3 headlights and a fresh front bumper. Above that bumper, a functional cowl induction hood anchors rebuilt hide-a-way wipers at the base of factory-tinted glass thats framed by pristine stainless trim and capped by new chrome drip rails. At the base of those drip rails, new red and white inlayed SS454 badges combine with straight stainless wheel frames, traditional chrome door handles and a flashy chrome mirror to add nice visual detail to the cars liquid smooth profile. And at the back of that profile, a second chrome bumper hangs a familiar black Super Sport inlay between clear brake lights, a fresh Chevelle by Chevrolet decklid emblem and spotless chrome exhaust tips which ensure the big 454 is both seen and heard.
In 1970, the biggest and baddest motor you could shove between the fenders of an all-steel Chevrolet passenger car was the mighty LS6 454 V8. And this coupes hot big block, which produces north of 460 horsepower, twists out roughly 500 lb./ft. of torque, and wears an LS6-exclusvie CRV suffix stamp in front of a familiar 3963512 casting number and a February (B) 19th (19) of 1970 (70) date code, has been completely restored to 100% factory-correct condition! This is the original, assembly-line installed LS6 454 to the car. Peer under the pin-less cowl induction hood and youll find a chrome topped, dual-snorkel air cleaner which forces oxygen through a fresh filter element into a new Holley carburetor and an original Winter intake. At the sides of that intake, original 3964921 square port heads hang original chrome valve covers over NOS connecting rods, fully restored exhaust manifolds and a correct smog pump. Behind that smog pump, correct Packard TV R Suppression wires trace small chrome looms to an original points distributor. Opposite that distributor, fresh V-belts and correct pulleys spin an original power steering pump, a date-correct water pump and a correct heavy duty alternator in front of an original timing chain cover and an original water neck. And at the back of the block, a fully rebuilt wiper motor rides beside a correct Delco Moraine brake booster. As youve probably noticed, the clean engine bay is dressed in a pristine combination of smooth black panels, glossy orange paint, and factory-accurate overspray; just as it left the showroom. And all the cars details, from accurate chalk marks and a reproduction Delco Energizer battery to reproduction GM hoses, dated tower clamps and a full array of fresh decals, are on target and exceptionally well-done!
Naturally the bottom of this Chevelle is just as clean and correctly restored as its original body panels and pristine engine bay. The cars rust-free floors are covered in a nice combination of satin black frame spray, Mist Green overspray and red oxide primer. Its factory correct F41 heavy duty suspension, which includes thicker coils, heavy duty shocks, a larger diameter front sway bar, a standard rear sway bar, boxed rear control arms and upper rear cross braces, has been restored to better-than-new condition ...For more information please call the seller.
