For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 LS6 is the muscle car that does it all. Pedigree? It's a real-deal RPO Code Z15 LS6 454 packed with a date-code correct 454 built to LS6 by professionals. Options? Impressive, including power steering, power front disc brakes, and a cowl-induction hood, and a Muncie M22 'Rock Crusher' 4-speed manual. Restoration? Expertly done to a very high standard. You want the ultimate A-body? I think we just found it.

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let us go over the details of this Chevelle's pedigree. It is indeed a true 454 LS6 car, it's an original California car, and it now houses a date-code correct 512 block that was rebuilt to the same specs as a 4-bolt main, solid-lifter 454 LS6. It went under a full nut-and-bolt restoration that was completed in 2019, and features a partial tank sticker/build sheet, a reproduction window sticker, and a folder full of receipts and pictures of the build and of the car's original stampings that underwrite the vehicle's noble birth. Code 932 Shadow Gray is this car's original color, and if you were ordering the ultimate Chevelle in 1970, well, wouldn't this have been a top choice to consider? It's a sinister shade of gray that really makes this sucker look mean, further punctuated by a set of black SS stripes and black vinyl top. The car was beautifully restored in 2019, and nobody will find much to complain about here. Paint and bodywork are excellent, with a deep shine to the two-stage urethane paint and great fit to all the panels. Proper black SS stripes were painted-on, since no Chevelle should go without, and there's a functional cowl-induction hood with locking pins for the performance look. The black vinyl top is a nice addition, working well with the black stripes to give the car a grown-up look, and it, too, was finished to a high standard. Shiny chrome bumpers, a lot of freshly polished stainless trim, and correct badges throughout make this Chevelle look right from any angle.

Born with an original black, split-bench interior, the cabin was restored properly to those exact factory specifications during the restoration. Everything inside still looks brand new, including the seat covers, carpets, headliner, and dash pad, and it all has a very crisp look. The bench seats are very comfortable, and when combined with the feel of the cue-ball topped Hurst shifter in your hand, there's simply nothing more exhilarating than an LS6 Chevelle. The gauges are bright and crisp, including the factory LS5/LS6 spec tachometer, and you'll note that this car includes such good options like an original AM/FM/8-track stereo (with a Led Zeppelin #1 track included with the sale), heat/defrost, an SS steering wheel, and power steering and power front disc brakes. The carpets are super fresh, protected by a set of matching vinyl mats, and the SS-spec door panels are adorned with a slight touch of chrome that really help them stand out. The trunk is detailed with the correct trunk finish paint, along with a reproduction vinyl mat and a full-size spare tire with jack set.

Pop that cowl-induction hood and you'll find the beast that lives within, a period-perfect 454 LS6 V8, precisely the kind of motor this beauty was born with. Born as a date-code correct 512 block (along with a partial VIN and CRV suffix code just like the factory in Van Nuys did for the LS5/LS6), it was machined to meet proper LS6 4-bolt main specs by Chuck's Performance in North Carolina. With a solid-lifter cam, the LS6 is more powerful and unbridled than the hydraulic cam powered LS5, with a healthy torque curve that shouldn't be interrupted by options like A/C, in case you were wondering why a high-dollar such as this was missing it. With only a few hundred miles on the entire build, it runs beautifully, inhaling through a Rochester 4-barrel carburetor and exhaling through cast iron exhaust manifolds. Chrome valve covers were standard equipment on the performance-oriented big blocks and the satin black inner fenders make the Chevy Orange block really pop. The Muncie M22 'Rock Crusher' 4-speed manual transmission was built for big block applications just like this and the Code CRV 12-bolt rear end packed with 3.31 gears just shrugs off the torque. The chassis is simply a thing of beauty, with a satin black frame, red-oxide floor pans, and new components everywhere you look, and the LS6-spec dual exhaust system belts out some of the best tunes any car lover could wish to hear. Correct Magnum 500 wheels with 'SS' center caps wheels look great and are wrapped with FR70-14 Firestone Wide Oval bias-ply tires at all four corners.

If money is no object, this is pretty much the Chevelle you want. It's beautifully done, yes, but it's also full of provenance - a factory buildsheet, reproduction window sticker, restoration phots, build receipts, original owner's manuals, and NCRS paperwork further backing up the vehicle's creed. This is a great one. Call today!
