Blacked-out, murdered-out, or midnight hero... no matter what you can call this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle, it's darker than the color of asphalt because that's what this powerful big block custom build eats for every meal.
Paint and bodywork mean everything to a car like this. The 1970 Chevelle coupe is one of the most iconic muscle cars, so when you want a cut above classic in slick black, it means investing in super straight panels that get showcased with the shiniest clearcoat black money can buy. While most cars of this caliber will add white SS stripes, this Chevelle remains distinctive in its unobstructed darkness. In fact, it wants nothing to get in the way of its expensive black so much that even the door handles are shaved. Add in the blacked-out grille and cowl induction style hood, and you get an appearance that is pure intimidation. Like any good classic American there's room for brightwork, and when it's against a black this glossy, it must also shine like a mirror on the bumpers and trim surrounding the glass. Add in Ridler wheels with a staggered size for added stance, and this is a truly an intimidating package.
The moment you open the door, you begin to see a great merger of the world of vintage Chevelle with some very nicely placed upgrades. It starts with the high-backed bucket seats that almost look like they belong in a late-model Corvette, except the pattern still matches the rear bench. These modern front buckets provide more bolstering and all-day comfort than anything that came out of the '70s. Speaking of comfort, your left hand will love the black and chrome sports steering wheel, and your right one will rest nicely on the center console with iconic horseshoe shifter. This Chevelle does borrow the Super Sport's triple round gauge package, and it has been upgraded to new readouts that glow bright and offer a large speedo and tach. The moment you turn the key, the exhaust growl is the most hypnotic, but for those few time when you want something else, the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input will let you play the most modern tunes with ease.
Open the hood, and see it filled with big block V8 power. The bright orange block looks like it's radiating power against the glossy black inner fenders, and the polished components like the air grabber and fined valve covers are always a good choice. But look beyond the shine and see the substance of a 454 motor enhanced with a Holley carburetor and Edelbrock RPM intake. Plus, there's an electric fan to keep this monster motor cool. It exhales through Hedman long-tube headers that not only add power, but also helps create the thundering rumble that come from the huge three-inch MagnaFlow dual exhaust. That is what makes this sound like the most amazing big block most have ever heard, making everyone within earshot turn their heads. This Chevelle knows how to handle its extra power thanks to features like the stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and the sticky grip of modern ZR-rated tires at each corner.
