1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 Tribute Convertible

Some of the most extraordinary cars we've ever featured are tribute cars, and perhaps because of their underdog status, their builders seem to go the extra mile. This 1970 Chevelle SS454 Tribute convertible, for instance, is extremely accurate in almost every way, and that's in addition to being simply gorgeous to look at and a blast to drive. The red-over-black color combination is striking and perfectly suits one of America's finest muscle cars. No car is perfect, but... this one is really bloody nice with super-straight bodywork that reflects beautifully under the shiny Cranberry Red paint. Even for a convertible, panel fit is very, very good, with even gaps around the doors and it has been fitted with a correct cowl-induction hood with hood pins for just the right SS look. Black stripes are the usual go-to but certainly look fantastic, and they've been expertly applied to match the factory pattern exactly. Bright chrome bumpers, proper SS badging, and all the other little details make this more than just another tribute car, but rather an expression of the restorer's craftsmanship and dedication. You can see just about everywhere you look that they tackled the project as if it really was a six-figure piece; it's simply gorgeous! The stunning black interior is OEM all the way, but the slick color will make you think that it came out of something a lot more expensive. Newer seat covers, carpets, door panels, dash pad, and other soft parts mean that it's like the factory intended inside, and aside from a few very minor signs of use on the driver's side, it looks almost like new. A 4-spoke steering wheel frames a correct SS instrument cluster, which includes a factory tach and clock, and the great thing about this beautiful droptop is that it comes with Vintage A/C. And talk about attention to detail! The original AM radio is still in the dash and the center console has been fully restored and houses the highly desirable horseshoe shifter for the automatic transmission. The black convertible top lowers itself with ease and features a correct glass rear window, a nice feature in many GM muscle cars. The trunk is also tidy, finished with black carpet and a full-sized tire assembly with jack. The namesake 454 cubic inch under the cowl hood packs plenty of power and it really shines in its well-detailed surroundings, wearing its pair of chrome Chevy valve covers and a chrome air cleaner and bracketed by a pair of ultra clean black inner fenders. The big block is spun by a Merch serpentine belt drive unit, and has been augmented with aluminum heads, Winters aluminum intake manifold, as well as an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor to get the most out of its considerable displacement. All that power pairs with a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive that allows for both fast acceleration and longer cruises. Power steering makes this vintage muscle car easy to handle, while its power brakes feature discs up front for fade-resistant stopping ability as it patrols the asphalt on a set of black 17" American Racing Torque Thrust wheels wrapped with 225/50/17 blackwall tires. This is a tribute that will fool most experts and the driving experience is identical. If you like the look and crave big block power, this convertible is a stunning no-excuses car. Offered with a factory buildsheet and build receipts, this droptop won't last long. Call today!
