The Chevrolet Chevelle is one of the most iconic muscle cars around.
Chevrolet introduced the Chevelle in 1963 as a 1964 model. Though quite large by today's standards, it was classified as a midsize car. What wasn't midsize was the level of passion garnered from the very beginning, a passion that has continued for decades.
Classic Car Overview
If you are in the market for something a bit more aggressive it doesnt get much better than a big block 70 Chevelle. Chevrolet styling grew more impressive across the board with each year in the 1960s, and in 1970 it introduced one of the classic designs of the muscle-car era in the redesigned Chevelle. The new model featured more curvaceous surfaces, an edgier front-end treatment with recessed quad headlights and maintaining the fastback roof line. For many of the Chevelle faithful, its a constant debate between the 67 and the 70 as to which is the most desirable. Take a look at this blue on blue 70 SS clone and decide for yourself! This 70 Chevelle was restored 12 years ago with the sole purpose of being a show car, but not a trailer queen. The current owner was very clear that he didnt want a trailer queen. He wanted a vehicle that he planned on putting on the road and driving regularly while attending shows in his free time. Thats why he chose the classic 454 big block V8 rather than a modern power plant! The block is a 1983 454 2 bolt main with a casting number of 14015445. It has been bored .060 over, decked, and put back together with Keith Black pistons. The engine fires up easily and sounds just like youd expect! The 4-speed manual transmission is the perfect choice to pair with a big block, and it shifts through the gears exactly the way you expect a GM transmission of the era to. Nothing feels quite the same as rowing gears in a big block, 4-speed Chevelle! The exterior is clean and straight, as you can see! During the restoration, the body was fully soda blasted. Both quarter panels have been replaced along with the outer wheel houses and trunk pans, as well as various other smaller patches. The rear fender wells are coated in LINE-X bedliner. The correct 4-speed shifter hump was welded into the floor pan. Lastly, the exterior was painted in PPG Deltron Astro Metallic blue. This is a quality base/clear paint job, and not a scuff and shoot style bargain basement respray. All of the glass is new from Auto City Classic, completing the look of a fully restored car. The underside is just as nice as the topside. The frame was completely disassembled and sand blasted during the restoration, and painted with Chassis Saver GM Restoration paint. All other major chassis components received the same treatment as the frame. The interior is in excellent overall condition and has clearly been well-maintained since the restoration was completed in 2007. It was a complete PUI interior kit, including all weatherstripping. All new everything was installed at the time of restoration. Plus, nothing matches a blue exterior better than a blue interior! While the build sheet confirms that this is NOT an authentic SS454 car, the correct SS badging is in place and helps this car look the part of whats under the hood. If youre looking for a drop-dead gorgeous 1970 Chevelle with a 454, 4-speed, and that classic SS look, this may just be the car for you! This is the perfect show car for the enthusiast that wants to drive to the show. It is a high-quality restoration that shows extremely well, and the restoration process was documented very thoroughly. Included in the sale is a binder of receipts and notes from the restoration.
