This 1970 Chevelle SS transitioned from an original rust-free muscle car to a modern-looking street touring ride. Sporting a professional rotisserie restored body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration, the 50,000-mile frame was fully prepared and coated with Satin Black GM epoxy chassis paint. Great care was taken to finish the underside of the body to match the quality of the top side. The body of this Chevelle was finished in five coats of BASF paint on top of a laser-straight body. No body panels were replaced and little filler was used. The interior of the car has been refreshed and modernized with new LED gauges that retain the stock look and style, along with a modern stereo system. The suspension was upgraded with ultra-modern, high-performance UMI red tubular suspension and the brakes were upgraded with Baer discs all around with modern looking wheels. The 396ci engine was upgraded and modernized with super-performance Holley Sniper fuel injection. The original GM Turbo 400 automatic transmission was rebuilt and retained, as well as the original 12-bolt 3.31 posi-traction rear end. The custom-made stainless-steel exhaust features an X-pipe and polished MagnaFlow mufflers. Modern LED headlights light the way for nighttime driving. During warm months, the Chevelle is cooled by a modern Classic Air cooling and ventilation system.
