For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle in Rowley, Massachusetts

Vehicle Description

"The exterior design of the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS represented a major change from previous years. The long sloping nose with horizontal headlights was dropped in favor of round headlights mounted on either side of a smaller grille. The grille was extended and moved forward to cover most of each front fender, creating a longer hood. The body sides were sculpted into flying buttress panels that extended down and around to the car's rear end, which gave it an appearance similar to European sports cars. Vertical taillights were inset into rounded tailfins on either side, making them one inch wider than other models at their widest point. On all models, sport wheels and larger tires were fitted as standard equipment but had been optional features in earlier years." -Hotcars.com

This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 originally delivered to Baker Chevrolet Inc. in Beaver PA has remained in the same ownership for the last 20 plus years. Finished in Cranberry Red (paint code 75) with black stripes. This Chevelle SS is well documented with original window sticker, build sheet and protect-o-plate.

The interior is fitted with a front bench seat with black vinyl upholstery and believed to be original. The overall interior is in very good condition with no signs of excessive wear or fading. This Chevelle SS appears to have had one older repaint in the original color, at some point the underside of the Chevelle was heavily undercoated but it appears that the floor pans and quarter panels are original to the car.

The paint presents well from the Cowl Induction hood to the rear bumper. There are the typical road nicks and imperfections to be expected with a 52-year-old vehicle. There is an area of minor corrosion on the lower right front fender and rear valance below the window which is identified in the pictures. Aside from these blemishes this Chevelle is an exceptional example of an unmolested iconic car manufactured in what many believe to be the pinnacle year for American muscle.

The numbers matching 396 cubic inch motor, factory rated at 350 horsepower is mated to the correct 4-speed Muncie transmission. This Chevelle pulls through the gears swiftly and powerfully while coming to a quick stop when needed with the power front disc brakes.

Every collector or enthusiasts needs a 1970 Chevelle SS 396 in their garage, after long ownership this one is now available.
