For sale is this really fine 3 owner 1970 Chevelle Super Sport. This California built vehicle was purchased originally April 8, 1970 by a couple in Clarmont, Ca from College Chevrolet. In April of 2001 it was given to the couple’s nephew Mr. Ed Goin who lived in Virginia. In 2004 Jimmy Jones of Brandon, MS bought the car from Mr. Goin. Jimmy did a ground up restoration on the car. The car was painted at that time and the interior replaced. Jimmy bought the car as his wife had had a new 1970 SS like this one but the interior was red. Jimmy replaced the black vinyl interior with red. The engine was pulled so that the engine compartment could be detailed. Jimmy at that time had found a second engine that came from another 396CI/350HP engine 1970 Chevelle SS. That engine was rebuilt to a high standard and is the engine that is in the car now. The original engine which was running fine is part of the purchase. During the ground up restoration Jimmy did the following to the car (among other things);
*The car was painted using the finest DuPont base coat clear coat products
*A complete new interior was installed; new seat covers with new cushions, new dash pad, new door panels, new carpet and new headliner.
*The transmission was pulled and was resealed with new gaskets and seals and new fluid.
