1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Coupe
1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Coupe
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, tastefully restored interior and first rate, all-American sheetmetal, you get the picturesque profile of an incredible muscle car!
For consignment the Chevrolet Chevelle SS Coupe. This car has been the beneficiary of an engine rebuild in 2018 and is now painted red sporting wide black racing stripes, shiny chrome, new gauges, and in overall very nice condition.
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 between a small “CHEVELLE” script, stainless-trimmed T3 headlights and an original re-chromed bumper. Opposite that bumper, a domed Super Sport 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 correct wheel trim. And at the back of the car, a second original, re-chromed bumper hangs a standard Super Sport inlay. All bathed in red respray and wide black stripes racing up the middle of the hood and trunk lid. Topping off the bottom of this car are 14-inch Magnum 500 SS center badged wheels all wrapped in Firestone Wide Ovals on all 4 corners.
Its correct combination of bench and bucket seats that are firm to the touch, encased in black vinyl, original belts, and high backs. In front of those seats, a straight Super Sport dash frames new inserted OEM gauges clean and pristine provide all the telemetry you'll need for those hot laps. Below that dash, black carpet floats an original, re-chromed shifter that would make an airline pilot proud, and this is inside a correct console and color-keyed floor mats with red stitched Chevelle script badges. At the sides of that carpet, door panels center classy stainless trim and requisite “SS” emblems on 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 fully restored trunk is finished with a correct jack and full-size spare tire. Headliner is nice and tight and is also black, and where the shoulder belts hang.
Gaze into the Satin Black engine bay and you'll find a ca. 1990-1991 454ci Mark IV short deck, all bedecked in orange paint. That block balances a polished and decaled open-air cleaner on a 4 bbl Holley carburetor. This professionally restored carb rides on a Winters intake, which feeds Chevrolet heads that are topped by re-chromed valve covers. Consigner states a small cam was snuck in during the restoration/rebuild. A newer TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is strapped to the rear of the mill, and it pushes power rearward to a ca. 1971 12 bolt 2.73 posi rear axle.
Well cared for would be the buzzword for the undercarriage, with clean suspension, surface rust free floorpans with plenty of undercoating, and straight rust-free rockers. Independent coil springs and 4 link with coil springs are on for the suspension, and power disc brakes for the front, and power drums for the rear.
Our muscle car aficionado snapped up this test drive, and when he returned, he just had a smile on his face and 2 thumbs up, so it must have been good! He reported nice acceleration, smooth shifting, good cornering and all the positive essentials were working swimmingly. Overall, it was very happy motoring.
A very nice example, ready to go and show with a simple turn of a key. No wrenching, no bodywork, no fuss no muss, just pure SS excitement and enjoyment all while looking just fab!
