For Sale: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

What happens when you take a polished Chevrolet body, bolt it to an upgraded chassis, drop in 502 cubic inches of hot GM Performance Parts big block and pile on a list of mind-blowing parts? You get one incredible classic that instantly becomes the center of attention wherever it goes! Mixing mesmerizing aesthetics with a timeless interior and a level of detail that requires multiple looks to fully comprehend, this sweet Chevelle is a carefully calculated compilation of top-notch performance from some of the biggest names in the business. And what's better: it's a fully sorted cruiser that was built, above all else, to be driven and enjoyed. Want an impressive ride that you can hop in, turn the key and sail some blacktop with? Your chariot has arrived!

TAILOR MADE FOR TIMELESS

A solid cruiser that's benefitted from detailed, ground-up restoration, this sweet Chevelle might just be the ultimate resto-mod. Visually, that exclusive status is achieved through solid sheetmetal that, thanks to the pros at Frederick, Maryland's Givens Collision, is dressed in silky metallic pigment which casts exceptional Indigo reflections. Naturally, that crisp General Motors two-stage includes traditional 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 kicks off with a stainless-trimmed Super Sport grille, which floats a bold "SS" badge between traditional headlights, stylish parking lamps and a broad bumper that's skinned in flashy chrome. At the top of that grille, a pinned Cowl Induction Hood traces a stainless-trimmed greenhouse, which is capped in tight White vinyl. 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 factory mirrors. And out back, a second broad bumper centers a clean Super Sport inlay between a classy Chevelle emblem, polished exhaust tips and traditional taillights.

FROM TURBO-JET TO RAM JET

Built to go just as well as it shows, this Chevy's 502 cubic inch Ram Jet big block provides an excellent mix of fun times and fried tires! At the top of the Jet Black mill, a polished GM Performance Parts air cleaner funnels oxygen into a tall GM Performance Parts intake. That intake feeds lightweight aluminum heads, which tilt stylish Chevrolet valve covers under a bright, color-keyed breather. The fires get lit by a traditional, points-style distributor, which sequences fire through loomed GM Performance Parts plug wires. At the front of those wires, a billet serpentine drive spins a quality Stewart water pump between a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor. Cooling is provided by a beefy aluminum radiator, which aligns quick electric puller fans behind a polished cap and a polished expansion tank. Spent gases get whisked away by coated Hooker Competition headers. And naturally, the buff motor rumbles in a fully finished engine bay that's dotted with first rate hardware like braided hoses, color-keyed sleeving and a stylish closeout panel.

RESTO-MOD: THE CAR OF THE PEOPLE

Park this Chevy on a lift and you'll find solid floorpans that are poised to battle wet and dry roads alike. Behind the 502, a tough hydraulic clutch kicks a tough Tremec TKO 600 5-speed that was sourced directly from Keisler Engineering. That gearbox twists a dressed 12-bolt axle. That pumpkin rides a factory-style 4-link rear-clip that's built with a thick sway bar, boxed 3CFab Racing trailing arms and trick Indigo Blue shocks. That clip pushes a factory-style independent front-half, which floats lucid power steering amid CPP control arms and Viking coil-over-shocks. Quick stops come courtesy of power-assisted calipers, 4-piston Wilwoods up front, which squeeze a quartet of rotors, drilled and slotted up front. Charred dinosaurs traverse polished stainless pipes, which roar through an X-shaped crossover, polished Pypes Race Pro mufflers and polished, factory-style tips. And at the corners, handsome U.S. Mags Bullets spin 245/40ZR20 Nitto NT555 G2s in front of 275/40ZR20 Nitto NT555 G2s.

THE WAY IT SHOULD BE

The timeless Ivory interior hiding behind this Chevelle's glossy doors is an era-correct factory affair that, 53 years after its debut, is still both stylish and cool. Tall bucket seats frame a factory console that's spiced with a traditional Hurst shifter. In front of that island, a monochromatic dash hangs Deluxe Chevelle Telemetry over Delco AM/FM audio and cool Vintage Air climate control. That seat, dash and console trifecta is completely framed by pliable Ivory side panels, which are dotted with shiny factory hardware. Clean Black carpet is shaded by Pioneer kick speakers. And the driver spins a handsome Chevrolet Rally Wheel around a tilting column.

The product of a detailed, ground-up build that would probably take a second mortgage to duplicate, this Chevy rolls on the right side of impressive. It's a highly desirable muscle car that's been carefully fitted with all the right stuff to be one seriously cool cruiser. Dreaming of the perfect blend of old school Motor City style and modern big block performance? You've found the ultimate classic!
