For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle has its numbers-matching L34 396/402ci motor upgraded with dual quads and other go-fast goodies to make for an awesome Super Sport. And with bold paint and a well-coordinated interior, it's an all-around exceptional hardtop muscle machine.


Hugger Orange is such an iconic Chevy color that it pretty much can attract a crowd on its own. Only special cars got this special order color on the 1970 Chevelle, and this one seems like the right one to earn that upgrade, too. This later respray continues to have an impressive gloss and shine. The quality of the finish comes from a good application, good care, and even being off the road and stored in a barn for a while. Oh yes, you can almost call the SS a barn find! Good body lines, nice glass, and bright chrome bumpers give this a quality feel. And of course, we know you love the look of a powerful coupe that comes from the cowl hood, SS grille, blackout rear panel, and the white racing stripes that are painted on for permanence. Plus, those polished Centerline Outlaw-style wheels show off a quarter-mile king kind of stance.


The exterior white stripes go particularly nicely with the parchment white interior. The fundamentals like the door panels, headliner, and upholstery look quite good. You'll even spot fun details, like working dome light and insignia trim in the seatbacks. While this is stylish, the point of a classic Chevelle is to have a real driver's car. So you have stock pieces like the front bucket seats, a center console, and a horseshoe shifter. This is joined by upgrades like the under-dash auxiliary gauges and a large bow tie tach on the steering column.


Under the hood is a clean presentation that makes it easy to show off the numbers-matching 396/402 cubic-inch V8 big block. But more than just history, this motor puts serious power on display. The long air grabber hides a dual set of Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors. There's also an Edelbrock intake and long tube headers feeding a dual exhaust with Flowmasters. You'll also spot good supporting components like an MSD ignition, an Optima battery, and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. It all makes for a strong-running package, and so it's easy to enjoy this Chevelle. The big block is nicely paired with the stout but smooth TH400 three-speed automatic transmission that feeds into a 12-bolt rear end. As you look underneath, you'll sport an SS-style rear suspension with boxed trailing arms and a sway bar. We're even told the front end was rebuilt with new shocks and new bushing only about two years ago. The package is topped off with nice driving features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.


This is the awesome SS396 that upgraded the style and power for a true icon of the blacktop. So don't let this hardtop slip away, call today!
