This 1970 Chevelle SS454 is in excellent condition. Restored in 2006, it still looks amazing today, packing a strong-running 454, factory air, and a beautifully finished interior. There's always a lot of talk about matching numbers when discussing these cars, but that completely overlooks the fact that they're a ton of fun to drive, look awesome, and nice ones with great options are still out there for affordable prices. And while real Chevelle experts know that it's virtually impossible to document a real SS without a build sheet or window sticker, this one has all the right parts, right down to the smallest details, which strongly suggest that it is a real SS. The slick body is bathed in traditional code 75 Cranberry Red with black SS stripes. Bodywork is excellent throughout, with great gaps and a smooth finish thanks to hours and hours of block sanding before a drop of paint was sprayed. Look how nicely those quarters fit, the smooth, unbroken line that runs from nose to tail, and the gaps on the doors; this car was put together very carefully. 1970 is arguably the most popular year for Chevelles, both now and when they were new, and the look never goes out of style. Four headlights up front frame a correct black SS grille, while out back, a blacked-out rub strip with correct SS emblems highlights the bumper. Hood pins, a cowl induction hood, and those timeless SS stripes give it an aggressive look that was undoubtedly intimidating on the street back in 1970, an impression that remains true today. I don't care what you're driving, you're going to think twice when a big block Chevelle rolls up next to you. Inside, this one has had a full makeover with beautiful black buckets with a factory console featuring the coolest shifter ever invented. The original gauges are the correct round-faced SS units and it includes the optional tachometer in the dash which is working great. Additional gauges hang under the dash watching oil pressure, coolant temperature, and battery voltage, just in case. The back seat also sports new seat covers, and new black carpet was installed throughout the passenger compartment. The dash pad and door panels also got an upgrade to match, and the restorer went the extra mile to get everything right by including fresh black seat belts as well. This car was originally equipped with A/C, and today it is fully functional and has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant. The radio is a relatively rare AM/FM unit, because FM was just starting to come into fashion in 1970, and you'll be glad to have it today. In back, the trunk has spatter-finish paint on ultra-clean quarter panels, and a jack assembly with full-sized spare tire on an original SS wheel. The engine is a 1971 vintage 454 using a warranty replacement block with casting code CE178982 in front the passenger cylinder head. We can't say whether it was originally installed in this car under warranty or not, but it has been rebuilt to original specifications and runs beautifully today. Nicely detailed at the time of restoration, it shows some signs of use, but will still show well at the local cruise night. Chevy Orange covers the block, while original-style chrome valve covers and open-element air cleaner with proper decals provide a little eye candy. Even being a 1971 454 CE block, this is a great period correct engine and not a cheap 454 taken from some pick-up truck. As I mentioned, there's factory A/C with original components, and efforts were made to duplicate factory finishes and markings throughout the engine bay. That potent big block is ably supported by a 3-speed automatic turning a durable 12-bolt rear. Showing signs of clean living, the chassis is rust-free and straight, and has been given a light coat of undercoating to help manage sound and heat. The exhaust system features Flowmaster mufflers that produce that unmistakable big block sound and terminate in correct chrome tips under the rear bumper. The suspension is stock with correct SS style factory lower control arms, larger SS sway bars and the brakes have been rebuilt. Everything rides on a set of great-looking 14-inch SS wheels wearing 245/60R14 BF Goodrich T/A radials. If you've been watching the market thinking that big block Chevelles were suddenly being priced out of reach, guess again. With good bones, a quality restoration, and no secrets, this Chevelle simply couldn't be duplicated for the asking price. Everything points to this car being a real SS 454 but even if it isn't real the car is still priced very competitively and documented real SS would be priced much higher. Call us today!
