For many muscle car collectors, verification of a desirable model is necessary before considering a purchase, as it ensures the car started its life as it appears today. In the case of this Champagne Gold 1970 Chevelle SS, a build sheet verifies that it left the Atlanta, Georgia, assembly plant with its most important equipment.

Raise the domed hood to find a matching-numbers L34 big-block V-8 which, despite emblems and decals to the contrary, displaced 402 CI thanks to an increase in the 396's bore. It was rated by Chevrolet as producing 350 HP and 415 lb-ft of peak torque. Aft of the engine is RPO M40, a Turbo Hydra-Matic TH400 3-speed automatic transmission sending power to the Chevelle's 12-bolt, 3.31-geared rear end. The fun of driving this Chevelle wasn't limited to experiencing its prodigious torque at stoplight launches. Its chassis was equipped with the F41 special performance suspension, which included heavy-duty springs and shock absorbers, plus front and rear sway bars. Drivability was also improved thanks to power steering and power brakes with discs in front. Era-correct F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas bias-ply tires are mounted to five-spoke SS wheels.

The Chevelle's interior is equipped with the optional Strato bucket seats, center console (with the stirrup-shaped transmission shift lever) and a pushbutton radio in the dashboard. SS model Chevelles were fitted with instrument panels different from standard models, with three main pods in front of the driver housing a variety of gauges, depending on what was ordered. The pods in this instrument panel house a fuel gauge, speedometer and tach, while contemporary gauges in an underdash panel keep tabs on the engine's oil pressure, water temperature and voltage. Sold new at Matthews Chevrolet in Saluda, South Carolina, this Chevelle SS396 has been through a comprehensive body-off restoration.
