1970 Chevelle SS Big Block, Four Speed, 12-Bolt Posi-Trac!
When it comes to General Motors, there have been many popular nameplates across its array of offerings. But, somehow, Chevrolet always rises to the top of the wishlist when it comes to collectability. The Chevelle has been near the top for a while and shows no signs of falling off. First-generation models used to get all of the attention, but now, the second-gens are taking over, with the pinnacle being 1970.
Art & Speed just received this supreme specimen 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS with a big-block V8 (casting number 3969854), manual four-speed, and 12-bolt Posi. Bathed in black with painted white stripes, it doesn't get any more muscle car than that! It is an all-original appearing car, right down to the factory Rally wheels with Firestone Wide Oval F70R14 white-letter, bias-ply tires.
This '70 is recently restored with the body taken all the way down to bare metal before the basecoat/clearcoat Tuxedo Black paint and bright white stripes were applied. The new front and rear chrome bumpers really pop against the jet black paint. The grille and headlight bezels appear in as-new condition, and the taillight housings are brand new. In general, the stainless trim appears in above-average (but not perfect) condition with only a little pitting on the window trim. This Chevelle also wears the optional passenger side-view mirror.
The car's underside received a cleanup and fresh coat of paint after replacing the shocks and springs. All of the front suspension bushings are brand-new as well. This SS sports the factory-correct reinforced (boxed) rear control arms with the sway bar.
Under the working cowl-induction hood, in the tidy engine bay, sits the Chevy big-block engine between brand-new inner fenderwells. The horsepower rating is unknown as it appears the block was decked, but it is healthy with a Holley 4150 carburetor and a fairly new exhaust. It wears a brand-new chrome air cleaner and stock-replacement valve covers. Though it does not have air-conditioning, it does have power steering and power brakes (discs in front; drums in rear). Other new accessories include the wiper motor, washer bottle, battery, and battery tray.
Upgrades and updates abound in the interior as well, from the windshield to the package tray. All of the weatherstripping is new, including the trunk, which also got fresh spatter paint. The dash sports a new top pad and upgraded bezel area complete with a RetroSound stereo and dual front 4-inch Kenwood speakers. New OEM-style gauges with a 6,500rpm tach sit above the freshly painted steering column. The vinyl seats are in great shape but did receive new seatbacks. A new carpet, floor mats, and headliner were installed along with door panels front and rear. The interior trim is all-new, including pedals, door handles, window cranks, door sills, and even the four-speed shifter knob.
This muscle car is a perfect example of why the second-generation Chevelles are so sought after. While it is not a perfect 100-point museum piece, it is a terrific cruiser that is sure to turn heads wherever it goes. You can get in and enjoy the throaty big-block and have confidence in its driveability. Come by Art & Speed and see it for yourself today! You won't be disappointed.
