The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle is one of those timeless designs that looks good no matter how the car is built. Stock modified race pro-touring whatever; the clean lines and balanced stance on these tough looking muscle cars create a modern look with classic swagger that is an excellent platform for major modifications. Best of all their universal appeal and high production numbers mean that the Chevelle has one of the largest networks of aftermarket support in the collector car hobby. Born from that awesome combination of appeal and support this convertible 1970 Chevelle mixes traditional good looks and drop-top fun with serious modern performance hardware.
When searching for the perfect pro-touring Chevelle there is no shortage of hard top coupes. But when one wants the appeal and fun of a convertible mixed with custom good looks you have to search a little harder. RK Motors Charlotte presents you this handsome 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle convertible. Covered in a vivid coat of Flame Red and accented by painted White stripes this drop-top does a great job of showing off the car's chiseled athletic lines that are complemented with traditional looks. Due to being fresh out of a frame-off restoration that was completed in 2015 the stainless trim presents very well and the chrome pieces adorning the body show mirror-like reflections. The front fenders are dressed with "SS LSX" branded badges in the conventional locations while a "Chevelle by Chevrolet" badge rests on the rear trunk lid. Authentic 'T3' headlights seated in very clean bezels flank the 'SS' branded grill. And with the white vinyl top up or down the complete package looks great sitting on polished 18'' Billet Specialties wheels.
Release the hood pins to reveal a Chevrolet Performance supplied electronic fuel injected LS376 V8 that is rated for 525 horsepower! Cradled in satin black fenders and a flattened firewall the engine bay is well sorted and highlighted with faux carbon fiber accents throughout. A polished alternator and A/C compressor spin on a Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine system with polished pulleys while cooling comes from an aluminum C&R Racing radiator with dual speed electric fans. Supplementing the internal combustion of the 6.2L engine are Hedman headers that help the engine breath and Fast Fuel rails that provide fuel to the cylinders. Adding a bit of flash is a polished brake booster and master cylinder and billet hood hinges provide support while onlookers admire the clean engine bay.
Backing the 525 horsepower LS3 is a proven Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission. Used in factory applications such as the Dodge Viper and Chevrolet Corvette the T56 is no stranger to high-horsepower muscle cars and is a favorite among pro-touring enthusiasts. It spins power to a tough Posi-traction 12 bolt rear axle that is stuffed with 3.70 gears making the perfect combination of mind-blowing acceleration and highway-friendly cruising. Exhaust travels through a mandrel bent exhaust system that breathes through Magnaflow mufflers and has a great contrast against the satin black floors. To create a pleasant driving experience beyond horsepower and torque the builders of this Chevelle put a lot of thought into the handling of the car and upgraded the suspension with a 4-link rear and tubular control arms at both ends with Hotchkis components. At all four corners you'll find Viking coilover adjustable shocks as well as power disc brakes that feature cross-drilled and slotted rotors for extra cooling. Front and rear sway bars further stiffen the chassis while 2 inch drop spindles give the car an appealing stance. That stance sits on staggered 18 inch Billet Specialties wheels that are wrapped in 245/45R18 front and 285/40ZR18 rear Nitto NT555 Extreme ZR tires.
Open the doors to a classic interior that's been enhanced with some modern amenities. At first glance the white vinyl interior makes for a nice contrast with the black dash and black carpets. Nestled in the dash is Dakota digital VHX gauges that are housed in the factory locations and Vintage Air climate controls keep cabin temperatures comfortable. A traditional AM/FM radio deck has iPod connectivity with CD controls and powers hidden speakers located throughout the cabin. Familiar Strato bucket seats center a black console that houses a chrome hurst shifter topped by a white cue ball knob. And connecting the driver to the machine is a traditional 3-spoke steering wheel that operates a power steering system. And behind the passengers the trunk is finished with a clean and correct mat and houses the re-located battery.
