This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 is a real-deal Super Sport, and it comes with the buildsheet to prove it! So when you've also got a cool and correct color combo on one of the most desirable big block muscle cars around, you know this is an exceptional opportunity.
This car was built with style from day one. The factory-correct Champagne Gold is an attention-grabbing color. And that desirability gets amped up when adding black on the SS stripes, blackout grille, rear panel, and correct vinyl roof. It creates a timelessly attractive look, and this coupe was born with it. When this one was given a restoration later in life, they made sure to invest in quality paint and take time with the body panels. So there's plenty of elegance here. Of course, as a real-deal Super Sport, it also has plenty of aggression. The cowl hood, wide dual exhaust tips, and mag-style wheels are all part of the muscle car sensation.
The saddle tan interior is both factory-correct and a nice coordinating color to the exterior gold. There's plenty of originality here, right down to the correct trim on the seats. So there's some age here, and this hardtop wears it with pride. They also made some newer investment in places like the headliner, sun visors, and dash just to make sure the that the right pieces feel good. This was a nicely optioned car from the factory, and so lovers of vintage pieces will be showing off the Delco AM/FM radio and factory A/C controls (will need servicing to blow cold again.) But because you also want to drive this Chevelle SS, upgrades like the auxiliary gauges keep you updated on what's going on under the hood.
We can confirm this was born a 396 Super Sport, but the motor under the hood goes further than what came from the factory. The 396 cubic-inch big block is a replacement that has go-fast goodies like a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. Plus, it has the right supporting component, including an MSD ignition, Accel Super coil, and upgraded billet pulleys. It makes for a strong running package that's providing some serious power. The numbers-matching TH400 three-speed transmission is a stout unit that can handle this car's muscle while also providing easy automatic shifting. It feeds the strong 12-bolt rear end. As you look over the whole car, you'll spot more of the correct SS features, like the boxed trailing arms and rear sway bar. Plus, there's power steering, wide Cooper Cobra tires, and power brakes w/discs up front to keep this a nice all-around driver.
Not only will you love the distinction of this Chevelle, but also the accompanying buildsheet that proves its awesome color combo and it's a genuine Super Sport. This car just bleeds originality, so original that the factory buildsheet is is STILL glued to the inside drivers door panel. We pull the door panel to take the photo, we did not want to risk damaging it so we left it in place. Don't miss this golden opportunity, call today!!!
