1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS
The storied Chevelle is one of those timeless designs that looks
good no matter how it's built. Stock, modified, race, pro-touring,
whatever; the clean lines and balanced stance on these tough
classics create a confident swagger that's universally admired.
That means, if you're looking to ride in style, you really can't go
wrong with a Chevrolet A-Body. And when you factor in this ride's
big block drivetrain, tasteful interior and first rate,
all-American sheet metal, you get the picturesque profile of an
incredible muscle car!
For consignment, the 1970 version of the illustrious Chevrolet
Chevelle complete with the SS396 package. This car is a one owner
car complete with repair invoices, history through the years and
even the original dealership invoice. As is the case with many a
muscle car of the era, the original drivetrain is long gone,
however this car does hold an era-correct engine under its domed
For 1970, the face-lifted Chevelle moved an impressive 634K units.
Not only did that high-profile success earn GM big money, it also
solidified the nameplate as part of Chevy's oft romanticized
'golden era'. At the front of this coupe, a split grille hangs a
prominent "SS" emblem in the horizontal chromed mid grille bar.
Stainless-trimmed dual headlights are flanking on either side and
are within Black Cherry panels. Below is a nice and shiny bumper.
Opposite that bumper, a domed Super Sport dual white racing wide
striped hood leads the eye to fresh glass that's seated in original
stainless frames. At the base of those frames, chrome door handles,
a chrome driver's mirror and white-tinged "SS396" badges complement
14-inch Magnum 500 wheels. And at the back of the car, a second
original shiny bumper, hangs a standard Super Sport inlay. All
bathed in a Black Cherry respray and wide white stripes racing up
the middle of the hood and trunk lid. Paint has areas of bubbling
and inclusions, but no rust is noted, and the white stripes also
show some sap damage peppering them.
Its correct combination of bench and bucket seats that are firm to
the touch, encased in black vinyl, original belts, and high backs.
This seating presents very well and may be the original materials
and foam making up the buckets and bench. In front of those seats,
a straight rally dash frames a trio of gauges inset into a black
textured dash front. Below that dash, clean black carpet floats an
original center console that has a shifter that would make an
airline pilot proud, and this is inside a correct console. At the
sides of that carpet, door panels center classy stainless trim and
bright embellishments, bright handles and supple, comfortable
armrests. In front of the driver the steering wheel laps a black
column. And behind the passengers, the car's restored trunk is
finished with a correct jack and a full-size spare tire all
floating on black painted steel with evidence of pan repairs. The
headliner shows some sagging and wrinkles and is also black.
Gaze into the satin black engine bay and you'll find a circa 1969
396ci V8 courtesy of a full-size passenger car, all bedecked in a
chipped coating of orange/red GM paint. That block balances a
polished and decaled open air cleaner on a 4-bbl carburetor. This
feeds Chevrolet heads that are topped by chromed valve covers. A
TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is strapped to the rear of the
mill, and it pushes power rearward to a 12-bolt Positraction rear
Some spotty surface rust is noted on the floor pans, frame and
suspension components but no invasive rust is seen, even on the
rockers. Independent coil springs upfront and a 4 link with coil
springs in the rear are on for the suspension, and power disc
brakes for the front, and power drums for the rear. Like new dual
exhaust with some Flowmaster mufflers are on and making their way
rearward and looking just fine.
Our muscle car aficionado snapped up this test drive, and when he
returned he reported nice acceleration, smooth shifting, good
cornering and all the essentials were working swimmingly. Overall,
it was a very happy motoring and he quipped about how many looks he
got during his drive...personally I think people were staring at
1970's muscle alway brings smiles to faces, and this one with a few
frowns still has everyone looking at it smiling. A one owner car
with some of its original documentation and some work over the
years the consignor has owned it. Eat 'em up!
