For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

The legendary Chevelle has always been one of the coolest and most popular classics around, and the preservation and endurance provided by the restoration community really puts icing on that cake. But this coupe... Well, it's a bird of another feather. As a one-mile build that supplements premier Chevrolet style with a trick suspension, super slick aesthetics and hot LS power, it represents everything great about timeless American Muscle. Ready for years of open road fun? Time to call your friends at RK Motors!


A righteous cruiser that's benefitted from a ground-up, nut-and-bolt restoration, this sweet Chevelle might just be the ultimate resto-mod. Visually, that exclusive status is achieved through solid sheetmetal that was carefully stripped and lovingly dressed in rich Tuxedo Black two-stage. Naturally, that familiar pigment is pierced by crisp Classic White Rally Stripes. And it all adds up to one stunning Chevy coupe that rolls as an ardent champion for the best virtues of legendary American muscle: style, performance AND approachability!

The car's clean profile flames to life with a stainless-trimmed Super Sport grille, which floats between stainless-trimmed headlights, stylish parking lamps and a broad bumper that's skinned in fresh chrome. At the top of that grille, a pinned Cowl Induction Hood traces factory-tint glass, which is dressed in straight stainless and capped with polished rails. At the sides of the car, bright wheel trim joins traditional Super Sport fender badging to add a little pizzazz while chromed door handles perfectly complement a factory driver's mirror. And out back, a second broad bumper centers a clean "SS" inlay between a classy Chevelle emblem, polished exhaust tips and bright taillights.


Enact this Chevy's hood and you'll find 6.2 liters of divine GM small block. Sourced directly from the pros at BluePrint Engines, that hot LS3 twists 540 dyno-proven horsepower into 515 lb./ft. of dyno-proven torque! At the front of that $17K mill, a Spectre Cold Air Intake slinks breeze through a polished tube to an 87mm LT5 DBW throttle body. A loaded intake feeds lightweight BluePrint Engines heads while factory-style coils fire short BluePrint Engines wires. A nodular crank and hypereutectic pistons, internally balanced by the pros at BluePrint, join a hydraulic roller cam to provide stout 10.7 to 1 compression. Spent gases exit through coated Hooker headers. There's a lightweight Cold Case radiator that's slid between a polished support, a body-matched closeout and twin puller fans. A bright CVF serpentine drive spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. And, as you likely deduced from our photos, the 6-bolt engine rolls in a smooth, Satin Black frame that's finished with niceties like billet caps, billet fluid reservoirs and subtle, Satin Black valve covers.


Check the bottom of this Chevelle and you'll find fresh, Satin Black floors that frame a thoughtfully modified drivetrain. A McLeod Super StreetPro twin-disc clutch kicks a stout Tremec 5-speed that, like the car's engine, was sourced directly from BluePrint Engines. Power flows through a 3.5-inch aluminum driveshaft, sourced directly from Inland Empire, which twists a requisite Ford 9-inch that's finished with a posi-traction differential, 31-spline axles and fun, 3.50 gears. Those gears push a thoughtfully upgraded suspension that features two sway bars, tubular control arms and adjustable QA-1 coil-overs. Turns are easy thanks to fluid power steering. Braking is equally class thanks to bright calipers and drilled and slotted rotors - all part of The Right Stuff Detailing's Signature Big Brake Package. The aforementioned headers dump spent gases into Mandrel-bent pipes, which center a Pypes X crossover in front of Pypes Street Pro mufflers. And everything rolls on handsome U.S. Mags Bullets, which lap 225/45ZR18 Continental ExtremeContacts in front of 275/35ZR20 Continental ExtremeContacts.


Given the broad aftermarket support enjoyed by Chevy, it's relatively easy to build a serious performer. But most builds fail to refine that muscle into something that's livable on an everyday basis. After all, what fun is turning heads down Main Street if the ride there is almost insufferable? This coupe's customized cockpit kicks off with thick TMI buckets that feature striking white stitches. A monochromatic dash hangs attractive Dakota Digital VHX telemetry next to controls for Vintage Air conditioning and Bluetooth-capable Retro Radio audio. Factory side panels front convenient power windows. New carpet frames a simple Hurst shifter. The driver spins a Super Sport themed Rally Wheel around a tilting column. And that laid-back style continues through a fully carpeted trunk.

Chevys are cool, classic cars are cool and muscle cars are cool. That means this Chevelle, a premier classic Chevy that virtually defines the muscle car era, is cool simply by default. And that's not even considering the swagger afforded by the car's built chassis, big power and fresh, one-mile restoration! Call, click or visit to get behind the wheel of a true American original!
