This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 is a true Super Sport, and it has the buildsheet to prove it! Of course, you'll also love it for its upgraded big block power, four-on-the-floor, and overall attitude of this iconic muscle car hardtop.
The 1970 Chevelle just did it better than the rest. The long hood, proper pillarless hardtop, and fastback profile instantly announced a sports car had arrived. This one was restored later in life, but it still keeps a stock style, right down to the factory correct Cranberry Red paint. And the black SS stripes and black out panels front & rear look quite nice against it all. Imposing chrome bumpers, hood pins, and big dual exhaust tips are all part of what make this a great muscle car. And yes, you have a true cowl-induction hood. Plus, the classic-style Cragar SS wheels are done in a larger 17-inch size as a subtle hint to the upgrades under the hood.
The full black interior coordinates nicely with the exterior accents, and it has all the right pieces you want in a driver's coupe. That means bucket seats, a center console, the classic Chevy sports steering wheel, and a round gauge package with large speedo and tach. There are even upgraded AutoMeter readouts to keep you fully informed. This has an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for the best in modern driving music, but really your favorite volume control comes from rowing the Hurst shifter.
Under the hood is what we all love to see: serious big block power. The 396 cubic-inch V8 looks great with the bold orange block and plenty of polished components around it. It's a tidy setup with the right surrounding components, like the Autorad aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. But your favorite supporting piece will be the gasket around the air grabber. It seals this to the cowl induction hood so that the big block can get plenty of fresh air. Beneath that is a 396 cubic-inch V8. It's a 1971-72 unit that has been upgraded with a four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, and Hooker long tube headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this big block and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. This feeds a 12-bolt rear end with correct SS boxed trailing arms and sway bar. And while this Chevelle was made to eat the streets, it's also easy to tame. That's thanks to good driving features like power steering, power brakes with front disc brakes, and the grip of modern tires.
The sale not only comes with the buildsheet that proves this is a Super Sport, but also the owner's manual. This is the true SS Chevelle with big power and control of a stick shift. That makes for an irresistible deal you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
