This Chevelle started life as one of only 7,141 convertibles made in 1970. It now presents incredibly as the result of a 3-year, frame-off, completely custom restoration. The body was taken down to metal, and the firewall and inner fenders were all fitted with uniquely designed pieces. It is powered by a supercharged LS9 engine and a heavy-duty 4L65 automatic transmission shifted with the classic Chevelle horseshoe shifter tucked into the center console. This Chevy has dual exhaust with headers and Flowmaster mufflers that produce an awesome growl. It also has a custom chassis and features coilover rack & pinion suspension, 14" Baer brakes on all four corners, power steering and windows, a Vintage Air cooling system, and custom intercooler and radiator. The custom leather interior features 6-way power seats and Classic Instruments gauges with an extra boost gauge, transmission temperature gauge and clock. This Chevelle has been finished in custom-mixed gold paint accented by white Le Mans stripes. No detail was overlooked in finishing this car, including the jewelry on the fenders: nickel-plated silver and hand-painted enamel LS9 badges that were custom-designed, poured and polished.
