1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Pro Touring

As you can tell from the photos, this isn't your average 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle. Looking like a star player in the next "Fast and Furious" movie, this evil-looking big block Chevelle is a fresh professional build that takes a new look at an old favorite.This is the A-body stripped down to its barest essence, a car single-mindedly dedicated to going fast and it leaves off most of the stuff that doesn't further that goal. Part of going fast is keeping a low profile, so instead of bright Cranberry Red with white stripes, this one wears a slightly more subtle coat of Tuxedo Black with silver stripes and the most subtle of red pinstripes to highlight the package. Now just because it doesn't assault your eyeballs with color, don't make the mistake of assuming that this car doesn't get noticed, because it cruises through traffic like an apex predator and you'll be shocked by how lesser machines scurry to get out of its way. Part of that comes from traditional SS hardware, including the SS grille, hood pins, and cowl-induction hood, but the rest is just pure charisma. The finish is impossibly shiny, the sheetmetal is incredibly straight, and even the smallest pieces were treated to a high-quality restoration that literally spared no expense.More major upgrades inside, starting with a set of deeply sculpted TMI leather bucket seats. Grippy suede inserts are perfect for a car with this much grip and the red stitching really ties it together with the exterior. New black carpets (can you see a theme here?) are OEM-grade, but they're hardly the end of the upgrades. The instrument panel is full of modern Dakota Digital gauges with carbon-fiber faces, there's a fat billet steering wheel, and a custom center console is fitted with a trick shifter for the 6-speed manual transmission. Entertainment comes via a Pioneer digital sound system with AM/FM/iPod/MP3/Bluetooth capability, a Phoenix amplifier, Alpine subwoofer, and Pioneer speakers stashed throughout the interior. This is also a factory air-conditioned car, which now uses modern components to make the chill using the original controls. The trunk is completely carpeted and nicely finished, indicative of a complete build by guys who really knew their stuff.We don't know what engine was originally in this Chevelle and we don't care, because it now sports an all-aluminum LS2 that makes about 450 horsepower. Nestled into the satin black engine bay with smooth inner fenders and firewall, it looks purposeful with the twin coil covers painted to match the bodywork and a custom snorkel for the air intake. The monochromatic look works rather well on the heavy-duty V8, and as many OEM parts were used as possible to preserve reliability. There's a close-ratio Tremec 6-speed manual transmission and a custom-built 12-bolt rear end with an Auburn Posi unit to plant the power, and the front suspension is upgraded with QA1 tubular A-arms and adjustable Bilstein coil-overs. There's a Wilwood disc brake at all four corners that really pop with the bright red calipers on cross-drilled rotors and nothing sounds better than a big block exhaling through Jet-Hot coated headers and a Flowmaster exhaust system. Satin black HRE 3-piece wheels complete the look and cost about $1500 each, and carry staggered 255/30/20 front and 305/30/20 rear Pirelli performance radials. This is a seriously nice Chevelle and as a fresh build with only a handful of miles, it's poised to storm the shows next summer and start collecting trophies. Call today!
