For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Big Block convertible. 1970 would the peak year for horsepower and displacement. 1971 would be the start of lower compression ratios resulting in lower horsepower. This 1970 Chevelle is powered by a date coded 396 big block that is producing 350 horsepower and 427 lbs/ft of torque. Certainly more than of enough to smoke the rear tires.

The restoration was completed at the same time and still looks amazing. Backing up that big block power is a TH-400 automatic transmission and on to a twelve bolt rear-end housing 3.31 gears.
