Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute Restomod is stunning in every way. That means the color combo, feature-filled interior A/C, and even the fresh look of the undercarriage. But what will really make you fall in instantly love/lust is the fuel-injected big block V8 and the control of a five-speed. Best of all, there's less than 600 miles on the whole build!
This is a bold coupe, and so the first thing they did was make sure to upgrade it to a bold red. The respray happened in 2013, but the real story here is the level of quality in the car's full frame-off restoration. It's why the finish still looks basically brand new today. And the combination of painted white racing stripes and white vinyl roof give you a well-coordinated look that drives home the ideas of both premium and performance. That's an overall theme you'll see the deeper you dig into this Chevelle. It feels like they spared no expense on this one as you look at the details, like the clear/bright headlights, straight body panels, pliable weather-stripping, and mirror-like chrome bumpers. Of course, it also has the underlying intimidation factor of the Super Sport pieces, like the hood pins, large exhaust tips, SS badging, and functioning cowl hood. And those Billet Specialties wheels with a 18/20 inch front/rear stagger set the tone right for polished, powerful, and upgraded.
If you like all the white accents of the exterior, then you're also going to love the restored interior. It has that pristine look of quality, and there's an added radiance that lives up to the Pearl White name. It has the classic features you love with a vintage appearance on the seats, door panels, and center console. But the more you peek around, the more you'll spot well-integrated upgrades. For example, when was the last time you found a muscle car with shoulder belts for the rear seat passengers? And in fact, this is great for everyone thanks to cold-blowing air conditioning, a RetroSound AM/FM Bluetooth radio, and a full upgraded speaker system with JL Audio subwoofer. Of course the best treats are only for you. The wood-rimmed steering wheel is on a tilt column so that you get a clear view to the full upgraded Dakota Digital HDX gauges. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?
The engine bay has a terrific muscle car appearance. Fresh components, bright valve covers, and a gasket around the air grabber to seal it to the cowl induction hood - this one looks clean and mean. And at the heart is a 427 cubic-inch V8 built with an upgraded cam, Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads, and an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake. Plus, this is topped with a Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection system for added power and consistency. The dual exhaust is that ideal balance of big block prowess, but it's far from anything too loud to get you kicked out of the neighborhood. And you're really going to want to be driving this one everywhere because the upgrade to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission means you have the ideal control over all this big block muscle. The power is sent to a 12-bolt Positraction rear, and you can see this also has the reinforced trailing arms and rear sway bar. In fact, as you look at the clean undercarriage photos, you see fresher components that give you added confidence on the road. Combine that with power steering, power brakes front discs, and modern ZR-rated tires, and you have an all-around sharp driver.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and service manuals. This is the icon that has been upgraded to be striking from every angle. So if you demand the best, call today!
