By 1970, the Chevelle had already captured Chevy enthusiasts hearts
and this year's design and performance changes enhanced their love
for the model. The '70 model year saw an edgier body introduced
with a more squared-up stance in contrast with the curves of the
'69 year-model. Enhancing the SS option, Chevelle owners saw
increased offerings that came with the SS badge. Buyers could
choose from a 396 or 454 cubic inch V8. The SS received a "power
dome" hood, black accented grill and rear bumper insert. The sport
wheels on the SS where equipped with wide-oval tires. There was no
doubt with the introduction of '70 Chevelle SS that this car would
become a legend.
This '70 Chevelle SS is powered by a matching numbers 454ci/450hp
LS6 V8. The result of a frame-off restoration, we acquired this car
from a large private collection where the car had sat on display
for some time. We immediately had the exterior stripped and
repainted in order to bring the exterior to the standard of the
rest of the car. In addition, the motor, heads and transmission
were broken down and resealed, a new clutch was installed, brakes
were replaced all around, including brake lines, and a new master
cylinder and brake booster were also added. The M22 heavy duty
4-speed manual transmission and 12-bolt Positraction rear axle on
the car are both date code correct. This LS6 Chevelle is truly
unique with it's Black Cherry (Code 6868) exterior and Saddle vinyl
bench seat. On the exterior, the gleaming fresh paint is set off by
white rally stripes that run into over the cowl induction hood.
Soft Ray tinted glass and Firestone Wide Oval tires round out the
curb appeal. On the inside, the saddle seating is complemented by
the two-tone saddle and brown dash. Options include AM/FM radio,
deluxe seat belts with shoulder harness and 6,500 redline
Well-restored true 1970 LS6 Chevelles, especially those that
present with unique builds, are becoming more and more difficult to
acquire. This Chevelle is undoubtedly an investment worthy car that
will continue to present appreciation opportunity.
