Chevelle SS 1970

Title Status Clear
Exterior Color Green Mist
Interior Color Dark Green


They say it's not easy being green, but when people see this highly-documented 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle with great paint, a nice A/C interior, and fresh big block power under the hood well then, they'll just be green with envy.

Green Mist is a great minty hue that represents this coupe's era perfectly. Of course, it helps that the factory-correct color has been given a full professional respray. That means you get the pride of originality, and the bright luster that can only come from modern paint practices. Bodywork is excellent all around, so the light rolls off this one evenly no matter if it's enjoying the sunlight or reflecting the Saturday night neon. There has been a lot of attention paid to the details. That's why the iconic SS stripes come together with the blacked-out grille, dark rear panel, and the taut vinyl roof to give this car a great secondary dark color. Heck, we bet you might even give this cool classic a "mint chocolate" nickname. And the form-fitting bumpers give this candy its shiny wrapper. But before we have too much fun with these sugar-filled references, you know no one will mistake this for a bubble gum classic. That's because the cowl induction hood, SS badging, and polished 16-inch REV wheels are all big hints that this is a true performance machine.

Most muscle cars have been switched over to an all-black interior over the years, so this highly original dark green interior feels like a precious gem. The carpets, door panels, headliner, and seats have all been looked over in this one, and the result is a great place to spend some time. You can hop in and grab the three-spoke steering wheel with your left hand, and your right one is instantly attracted to the iconic horseshoe shifter in the center console. The factory gauges are supplemented by auxiliary readouts and a large pillar-mounted tach. There's provisions for a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with iPod input. Plus, the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a. After all, you want to remain cool while showing off the cool hardtop profile, right?

The reason why we love the Chevelle is because it has a true muscle car vibe is just begging for a big block. Sometimes it will just make your whole day seeing this much American muscle filling an engine bay, especially this one. It's a recent professional build with only about 1,000 miles on it since completion. That's why you have a ton of fresh and shining components. But more than just look great, this 396 cubic-inch big block was built for serious power. It has been bored and stroked for extra displacement. Plus, there are TRW pistons, Comp Cams hydraulic roller camshaft lifters, Edelbrock Performer intake, four-barrel carburetor, and a set of headers that feed the thunderous H-pipe dual exhaust. Getting all this power to the ground is easy thanks to the stout 12-bolt rear end with Positraction that was rebuilt around the same time as the motor. Add in a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and the modern grip of BF Goodrich gForce tires, and you have a powerful classic that's easy to show off everywhere.

There's a document file that comes with the sale, including the original window sticker, bill of sale, dealer invoice, factory build sheet, warranty card, owner's manual, build receipts, and maintenance records. This is a standout for its colors, features, and performance, so you know this one is right for you. Call now!
