1970 was the pinnacle of the American muscle car movement. Too much performance just wasn't enough, and user friendliness was exchanged for a healthy combination of style, attitude and danger. Just take a look at this handsome Chevelle Super Sport, a car that wraps butch styling around serious big block horsepower and the kind of hardware that's become the stuff of legend. With its ample and inexpensive parts supply, ease of ownership and classic, all-American appeal, THIS is the top dog muscle car that every octane-fueled gearhead wants to park in their garage. And now, thanks to your like-minded friends at RK Motors Charlotte, you can drive one home in better-than-new condition! And unlike a documented, numbers matching version, this LS6 Convertible doesn't cost $500,000.00! 't, if you want to be admired by your neighbors, envied by your car club, and loathed by the kid at the local stoplight, pick up the phone and pick up your new Chevelle!
As with any high caliber classic, this Chevy's paint and bodywork is first-rate throughout. Smooth Tuxedo Black base is seated under Classic White Super Sport stripes and buried in glossy clear. That pigment highlights carefully sculpted steel which, when combined with the car's clean frame, documents a 3-year, $125K restoration. That ground-up reboot certainly sweats the details, featuring finish work that's befitting a rarely driven trailer queen. And naturally, everything has been professionally sanded and carefully buffed to a weather-enduring shine.
Many enthusiasts believe the '70 Chevelle introduced a host of excellent refinements which transformed the 'good' design of Chevrolet's '69 model into something 'great'. At the front of this retro road rocket you'll find a familiar crossbar grille, which hangs a fresh and prominent “SS” emblem between stainless-trimmed headlights and a thick chrome bumper. Above that bumper, a cowl induction hood anchors traditional lanyards and rebuilt Hide-A-Way wipers at the base of like-new glass that's flanked by straight stainless frames and a monochromatic top. Opposite that top, subtle “SS454” badges combine with dent-free fender trim, traditional chrome door handles and flashy chrome mirrors to add visual detail to the car's liquid-smooth profile. And at the back of that profile, a second chrome bumper hangs a black Super Sport inlay between clear brake lamps and polished stainless exhaust tips.
Hoist this drop-top's mirror-slick hood and you'll find a 454 cubic inch Chevrolet big block that, thanks to a few well-planned tweaks, produces roughly 450 horsepower. At the top of the mighty mill, a simple chrome air cleaner funnels wind into a reliable Quick Fuel carburetor that's threaded onto fresh stainless fuel lines. Below that carburetor, a low-rise Winters intake feeds cast iron heads that ride between a steel crank, forged 12:1 pistons and bright chrome valve covers. At the back of those heads, a correct points distributor shoots fire through eight Packard TV R Suppression cables. Below those cables, cast iron exhaust manifolds jettison spent gases in to free-flowing tail pipes. And at the front of those manifolds, a reproduction Delco battery complements a heavy duty radiator and correct plastic fan shroud. Aesthetically, this road ready Chevelle's glossy exterior paint transitions nicely into a clean engine bay that features a very high level of detail. New GM hoses combine with fresh decals, correct markings and appropriate tower clamps to add a factory-finished sheen. And all the familiar extraneous bits, like the car's tagged brake booster and correct hood insulation are present, sorted and fully accounted for.
The theme of 'road ready' also extends under this fully restored Super Sport where you'll find super clean floors and a rebuilt, factory-accurate chassis. Behind the stout engine, a Borg Warner T10 4-speed sends power to a correct, 12-bolt rear end that's fitted with familiar, 3.31 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is an option F41 double A-arm front and 4-link rear suspension, which is equipped with factory power steering, heavy duty sway bars, boxed rear control arms and stiffer springs. The car's rebuilt power front disc and rear drum brake system is present, accounted for and functions exceptionally well. The aforementioned exhaust manifolds dump spent gases into high performance, true-dual pipes that breathe through raspy, dual-chamber mufflers. And power flows to the pavement via stylish Super Sport wheels and G70-14 Firestone tires. The car's frame, free of any major damage, is finished in satin as a textural contrast to its Tuxedo Black floors. And, in keeping with its raucous 454, much attention has been paid to making sure everything under this Chevelle is clean, mean and ready to go!
Featuring a host of new components, and decked in bright Ivory vinyl, this convertible's fully restored interior feels both comfortable and inviting. Its slick front bucket and rear bench seats, which feature embossed weave patterns that were designed to keep passenger's backs cool, show hardly any signs of wear. In front of those seats, a straight and crack-free dash hangs a deluxe Chevelle gauge cluster above correct climate controls and a snazzy Custom Autosound stereo. Below that dash, fresh black carpet, which is protected by rugged rubber floor mats, centers a chrome Muncie shifter inside an attractive, stainless-trimmed console. At the sides of that carpet, clean door panels hang spotless stainless trim between crank windows and factory door locks. In front of the driver, a black, “SS” branded steering wheel keeps everybody pointed in the right direction. And behind the passengers, a fully restored trunk centers a full-size spare tire and correct jack assembly between a new mat and correct decklid decals.
The sale of this awesome A-Body includes a vintage Owner's Manual and instructions for the aforementioned Custom Autosound head unit.
Overall, this slick black Chevy is the total package. With a king-of-the-mountain big block, tough Borg Warner 4-speed, and every option that allowed these cars to develop such stellar reputations, it was and still remains an excellent example of 'bragging rights' muscle. If you're ready for some first class firepower in your automotive arsenal, don't miss the chance to take home this spectacular Chevelle Super Sport!

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
