Think of it: this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is a hot-looking convertible with a romping, stomping big-block V-8, 4-speed manual transmission, and one of the best handling packages of its day, and it was considered a compromise. That judgment, of course, was in the context of comparison to its NHRA World Championship-winning big brother, the SS454 LS6, long coveted as one of the ultimate classic-era muscle machines. On its own, the Chevelle SS396 still shines as an example of Chevrolet's contributions to that era, in terms of both styling and performance. The 1970 Chevelle SS was simply one of the best-looking automobiles ever produced by Chevrolet to that time, with athletic proportions, bulging contours, sporty exterior detailing, and a wide track stance. The SS interior was more like an office for the driver with room for company, sporting comfortable and handsomely styled available bucket seats, a businesslike instrument panel with blacked-out insert and special round gauges, padded-rim Sport steering wheel, and, on 4-speed models, a well-placed shifter topped with a simple chromed steel ball. There is even more to recommend this authentically restored SS396 convertible. Attractively finished in desirable Black Cherry paint with black sport stripes, power top, and interior, it combines a Cowl Induction-fed L34 396/350 HP big-block V-8 with a Muncie 4-speed and Positraction rear end augmented with power steering and power front disc brakes. In addition to the badges, hood pins, SS wheels and Goodyear Polyglas tires, blacked-out front, and rear treatments, and F41 special suspension that comprise the SS package, the car includes two Day Two add-ons in the form of an under-dash SunPro tach and Hurst shifter.
