Classic Car Overview
We know why you stopped to look here. Everyone wants to know if a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle has the 454 LS6 under the hood. Not only is it that true, but this is the numbers-matching big block with possibly only about 40k miles on the whole car. Thats why this special coupe underwent a nut and bolt restoration. So youre not just going to love this for its amazing quality, but its pedigree, too. Theres so much shine coming off this hardtop that people may think you did a restoration with a modern color. But this Forest Green is factory correct. It just has an exceptionally fresh look and an amazing clearcoat luster. Thats all part of the full frame-off restoration completed only a few years ago. Its a serious investment in all-around quality. That means exceptional sheetmetal - so you get to fully enjoy the fastback profile, form-fitting chrome bumpers, and well-creased fenders. And of course, we love all the sporty details like the power bulge in the hood, all the SS badging, and the 14-inch SS Mag-style wheels. As you look over the whole vehicle, youre going to notice that they really went the extra mile with this one. Its everywhere from the Firestone Wide Oval tires, to a reproduction GM dealer tag on the trunk. So its no wonder we have an appraisal from 2018 that valued this at $140,000. Inside is like hopping into a time machine back to 1970. They made sure the seats, carpeting, door panels headliner, dash, and more all have the correct stock look and an absolutely fresh feeling. And this doesnt stray from the trim tag, right down to the two wide rows of bench seats. Just like the exterior, the restoration was all about keeping it correct, right down to the details. So you have accurate reproduction decals in the door jamb, a correct spare in the trunk, and the AM radio is still cranking out the tunes. And because this is also a true muscle machine, they gave you a few handy upgrades, but never straying from the 1970 feeling. The Sun Super Tach and Hurst Competition Plus shifter makes this a true drivers muscle car, and they are the kind of vintage pieces this car could have had installed on day one. But what really makes this the star of any show is the numbers-matching optional LS6 big-block. That means a 454 cubic-inch V8 with four-bolt main, LS6 solid lifters, and a big Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. The package rated at a whopping 450 hp. This was the only year for the LS6 Chevelle - a brief moment in time when GM went wild and insurance and emissions rules had not caught on. Since its so significate, they made sure to give it a proper restoration, right down to elemets, like the correct GM hoses, classic-style battery topper, and Tonawanda decal on the shining valve covers. The power is unmistakable the moment you fire up the V8 and the dual exhaust makes its presence known. And you control it all with the numbers-matching Muncie M22 Rock Crusher four-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath theres a super-clean presentation that not only has the correct beefy suspension components, but also the factory tags are still in place! Only around 3,500 Chevelles were built in 1970 with this top dog motor and the full control of a four-speed. So well bet youll never find an original one this nice or with such low miles ever again. But while the coupes historic significances is epic and apparent, the massive power combined with great driving features like power steering, a 4.10 Postiraction rear end, and front disc brakes will mean you cant resist adding a few miles to the odometer. The sale comes complete with restoration receipts, build info, a feature story on this car, and photographic evidence of its stampings. This is a time capsule of the ultimate collectable muscle machine. So dont miss what could be your only opportunity ever. Call today!!!
