Charcoal Gray, black stripes, black interior, 396 cubes under the hood... do you really need to read any further? Some combinations are so timeless that you can picture them in your sleep, and Chevelles like the clean '70 SS Tribute you see here is one of them. It's got the right stance, the right wheels and the right rumble, too!
Outside, this nasty Chevy is coated with a quality paint job accented by twin black stripes that add a menacing look that few muscle cars can pull off, and the Chevelle totally nails it. It's got some signs of minor use here and there, but nobody's going to nit-pick this machine after it rumbles onto the show field, because it's got 'The Look'. Charcoal Gray works rather well with the aggressive stance and oversized rolling stock to give it a sleek, almost hi-tech look, aided by the cowl induction hood up front that sets the tone. The usual blacked out grille and SS badge up front are pure intimidation in other cars' rear view mirrors, and the big chrome bumper and the rest of the shiny bits on this car look great. This is a Chevelle to be proud of.
Inside, the optional bucket seats and center console are a ton sportier than the standard bench most of these cars have. There are fresh seat covers that replicate the originals and the dash pad, headliner, and door panels are in excellent condition as well. The carpets are plush and fully insulate the cabin, and the rear seat looks barely used. Full SS-style instrumentation is in front of you, although the original gauges have been upgraded to analog-digital units that are much more accurate, and an aftermarket retro-style AM/FM stereo radio manages the tunes. You'll see the factory heater controls are gone in favor of a Vintage A/C system that's blowing hard and cold today. And you already know how much we like GM's horseshoe shifter for these cars, installed neatly inside the factory middle console that splits the seats. In back, the trunk is very neatly finished with correct spatter paint and a full-size spare, giving it an honest, correct look that's very welcome here.
Under the hood is the thumping 396 engine, well dressed and running great. A blacked-out air cleaner is in place along with a matching set of black Chevrolet valve covers, which are a big part of this Chevy's performance look. A Holley 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold and an HEI ignition system probably add a few horsepower, as do the ceramic-coated long-tube headers. Key it up and there's the familiar thunder of GM big block, which is a big part of the intimidation factor, suggesting this car is ready to rumble. Underneath this car, though, you'll find more performance including a quick-shifting TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and a durable, heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end, plus an upgraded suspension that gives it that awesome stance. Beautiful American Racing Torque Thrust chrome wheels looks fantastic tucked into the fenders, and the low-profile 245/40/18 front and 285/40/18 rear Nitto rubber does wonders for the A-body's handling abilities.
Head turning, great sounding and even better driving, this sleek gray Chevelle reminds you why these cars are perennially popular. Call now!
