1970 Chevrolet Chevelle

The 1970 Chevelle SS 454 is thought by many to be the ultimate classic muscle car. This Chevelle has an estimated 510. Power is routed through an M22 “rock crusher” Muncie 4-speed transmission and a 4:10 rear end. It has the grunt to push you back in your seat and the exhaust sounds to go with it. This is what you expect with a true classic muscle car and this car delivers. The exterior of the Chevelle is painted in cranberry red (a stock color) with many coats of clearcoat over a body that is very straight with no body rot. The interior is stock. And now for some details:This Chevelle was on the front cover of Super Chevy magazine in June 2003 with the title “1970 Chevelle SS – Covered in Cranberries”. With the exception of the wheels and tires the Chevelle looks the same as it does in the article. (Scans from the article are attached. ) . I purchased the car from the person referenced in the article in 2012. Although the car was painted over 12 years ago. everyone is impressed at how great it still looks. There are a few cosmetic paint flaws but you have to search to find them. When I purchased the car it had Boyds wheels. I switched to SS rally wheels but I kept the Boyds wheels / tires – they are included in the price. ) Engine:- 454 cubic inches- TRW pistons with 9. 5:1 compression ratio- Comp Cams 255 DEH-10- Edlebrock Performer II intake manifold- Holley 850 cfm carb- MSD 6AL ignition- Pro Billet distributor- Dynomax headers with Flowmaster 3” exhaust- Seven quart capacity oil pan. - estimated 510 hp Transmission/Clutch:- M-22 Rock Crusher four speed- Hurst shifter- Centerforce dual friction clutch Rearend:- GM 12-bolt. 4. 10:1 gears.

Pretty trivial stuff. Very reliable. This is the (abridged) text from the Super Chevy magazine in June 2003: “In a recent conversation with xxxx owner of this months cover car. we had the realization that there are three types of Chevy guys. First we have the “lookers;” these are the people who will travel to the ends of the earth for the ultimate carnuba/Teflon past wax. These bow-tie fans enjoy nothing more than a great turnout at a Super Chevy Show and the occasional cruise to a local burger joint. On the other end of the spectrum we have the “horsepower freaks. those who will sacrifice any and every last convenience to go a little bit faster and burn more rubber. And. like everything else in the world. there are groups of people who have found a happy medium. the combination between go-fast and looks. In all honesty. we can you that xxxx is not one of latter two. His ’70 SS was built to melt the asphalt and pulverize the ever-obnoxious imports. The fact that it’s easy on the eyes and looks like it has 20 coats of clear coat is a definite plus. After purchasing the car from a local Corvette dealer. where it was on consignment. xxxx stored the LS-6 powered SS in his garage for quite a few years until finances and time would permit a restoration. With squeaks. oil leaks. and holes drilled everywhere from a previous race history. the SS was in serious need for a facelift. not to mention a heart transplant. As with all projects. beginning is the most difficult part. For lack of better judgment. xxxx began with the interior. He replaced the seating surfaces. dash. and all the rest of the interior details with factory parts purchased from eBay. The gauge cluster looked like q remnant from the Vietnam War and needed serious revamping. The doors were re-skinned with OPG sheetmetal. and every panel was straightened by Canyon Paint and Body. After coating the Heavy Chevy with new Cranberry Red paint. it was off to Wilson Enterprises for an engine and tranny overhaul. After the powerplant was removed. Wilson Enterprises tore the LS6 454 into pieces and took to their game plan. The block was bored. and the stock heads were completely rebuilt. A COMP Cams hydraulic bumpstick was chosen to open the valves while a Holley 850-cfm carburetor feeds the fuel and air mix into An Edlebrock Performer II intake manifold. Ignition is provided by an MSD 6AL box and Pro Billet distributor combination. while exhaust is routed through Dynomax headers and Flowmaster 3-inch dual exhaust. With all its newfound horsepower it was determined that the ’70 would benefit from a set of 4. 10:1 gears and a new Posi unit. Traction bars and Edlebrock shocks help reduce wheel hop and increase traction. Stopping power is provided by a set of Hawk disc brakes…. ” Will gladly answer any other questions or send additional pictures. Please note that the buyer is to cover any transportation costs.
