One of the most documented SS in the country with a great story. A marine returned from Vietnam in 1969 and treated himself to a brand new 1970 SS. He owned it until he passed in 2015, 46 years. He also kept all the documentation from original invoice to a gas mileage log. In 1999 the motor was a little tired, he decided to build a beast. We have a VHS tape of him installing a 502 motor. He also upgraded to a Super T-10 4-speed, 9" rear, 4 wheel disc and Hotchkis suspension components. It was built right. Runs mean, cruises nice.

It is obvious to me that this car was this man's passion. It was an ongoing love affair to make it better and maintain it to the a high standard. That is the type of person you dream to buy a car from. Really, by far this car has the biggest pile of documentation then any car we've ever had! A 9 inch pile, not a stack of books, but receipts of everything from day 1. This is a rare opportunity to buy the most iconic muscle car with a great story. Functions incredibly well, strong too!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
