For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

Admit it, you've been enviously looking at cars like this at cruise nights and car shows for years, haven't you? Somehow, Chevelle Restomods speak to almost everyone, with their ideal combination of brute power, comfort, and stylish good looks. This incredibly cool, nut-and-bolt restored 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Restomod - with its killer custom paint job, bespoke interior, thundering 383 Stroker V8 drivetrain, and pro-touring style suspension - is exactly the kind of car that dominates the show field and that you hear hammering down the road late at night.

Dressed in a custom, two-tone suit of Blue and Silver, this hotshot Chevelle really stands out and makes its presence felt. Both colors are electric all alone, but when put together, they complement each other marvelously. And unlike your typical roof-over-body paint layout, the builders used a clever technique and covered most of the body in lustrous blue, contrasted by the striking silver on the hood, front grille, front bumper, and surrounding the bottom portion of the side windows. A bright red pinstripe separates the two colors and manages to enhance them both as a beacon of demarcation, and even the raised cowl hood scoop and the outer lips of the custom wheels show-off this restomod's grand color scheme. Better still, the paint and bodywork were completed to a top driver-quality standard, if not borderline show-quality, with great panel alignment, exacting gaps, and attention to detail that proudly states that this was more than just a quickie job. Sure, it's been driven and enjoyed since the build was completed, and upon closer inspection some minor signs of use will pop up here and there, but we're talking fairly inconsequential imperfections and this beauty still looks like a million bucks when it's blowing past you on the road. Minor imperfections can be easily forgiven when the curb appeal is this high, and even though we're happy with the way this Chevelle sits today, a buff-and-wax could easily kick things up a notch and restore some previous glory and get it ready for the show field. With color-matched bumpers and a stock-style grille, there's not a lot of chrome, but the brightwork around the LED lights, the grille inserts, wheel arches, drip rails, door hardware, and badges all brighten things up, adding just the right amount of sparkle to the already LOUD paint job. Custom '383 Stroker' airbrush work on the hood scoop let everyone know this isn't some average grocery-getter, and the lowered, crouched stance makes it feel like this Chevelle is going to take a swing at you at any moment.

The handsome dark blue vinyl interior was fully restored for a period-correct factory look punched-up with a little extra spice, including comfortable bucket seats with flashy red piping that matches the exterior paint scheme, plush dark blue carpets, and reproduction dark blue door panels that all work to make for an inviting, comfortable place to do the serious business of driving. A factory center console splits the front seats and houses a horseshoe shifter that manages the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission below, a look that shouts high performance in every way. The original gauges were swapped in favor of a full array of Dakota Digital units that fit directly inside a custom bezel ahead of the driver, and the upgraded instruments look incredibly modern and provide a more accurate eye on the big engine under the hood. Amenities include a sporty, wood-rimmed steering wheel that sits atop a polished tilt column, seatbelts fore and aft, an R134a A/C system that blows ice cold, and a Pioneer AM/FM/BT head unit installed neatly in the center of the dash. Not exactly a fully-loaded Lexus, but if that's what you're looking for you probably should've stopped reading a long time ago. The dash pad is in great shape and free of cracks, the headliner above is taut, original Chevelle vinyl floormats protect the carpets, and the back seat provides ample room for three of your friends.

Powering this '70 Chevelle is a beefy, built-up 383 Stroker V8 that was professionally installed and tuned to perfection by the pros at Gearhead Performance. Reported to be a Blueprint crate engine, it was installed in late 2018 and only has 3,257 miles on the block, and it packs a huge punch out in the streets. Dressed to impress, it features shiny Chevrolet valve covers and a matching chrome open-element air cleaner, a polished March serpentine belt system, and all the components, wiring, and plumbing are neatly organized around the block. The beefy motor is fed through a brightly polished aluminum intake and a FiTech fuel-injection system, sparks to life via an MSD ignition and ProBillet distributor, and breathes easy through a set of stainless long-tube headers that feed into a Magnflow X-pipe dual exhaust system that sounds downright erotic. The cowl induction hood feeds the open-element air cleaner and the entire build has a slick look to it that's very appealing, right down to the shiny inner fenders and firewall, polished billet hood hinges, and chrome radiator cover that protects the giant aluminum radiator keeping the whole show nice and cool. The chassis is extremely clean and features new components throughout, a more-than-capable TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, and a heavy-duty 10-bolt rear end out back. Tubular A-arms, a UMI sway bar, and adjustable RideTech shocks man the front suspension, while adjustable Fox shocks and a UMI sway bar keep the rear end planted to the ground with the help of modern power steering and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors. Flashy Boyd Coddington wheels are staggered with 18's up front and 20'is in the rear, and they perfectly complement the electric bodywork.
