If you're buying a car to enjoy, the driving experience is a huge part of your decision. Build sheets, Protect-O-Plates, certificates of authenticity – they're all great to have, but none of them make the car better, tighter or faster. Not to mention, they tend to command a pretty serious premium. If you've dreamed of ripping through the gears in an LS6 Chevelle Convertible but just can't bring yourself to finance $500K, this brilliant convertible is the perfect option. It looks the part, sounds the part and, best of all, FEELS the part. Driven just a few miles since a high dollar, ground-up restoration, it's a fully sorted bruiser that'll devour the road and display proudly any time you feel like stopping. If you're looking for a lot of show AND a lot of go, still your gaze on this stunning A-Body!
There was no shortage of great color options for the legendary Chevelle, but it's hard to argue the effect Cranberry Red has on the car's sturdy lines. Recently massaged and sprayed, this glossy Chevy looks great decked in white Super Sport stripes and thoroughly buffed clear. Shut lines look straight all around, with rockers, doors and fenders that work well together. And the end result is one high caliber classic that features first-rate bodywork throughout.
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, a “CHEVELLE” branded grille hangs a fresh and prominent “SS” emblem between stainless-seated T3s, clear marker lamps 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 bright white top. Opposite that top, subtle “SS454” badges combine with dent-free fender trim, traditional chrome door handles and a flashy chrome mirror to add visual detail to the car's vivid profile. And at the back of that profile, a second chrome bumper hangs a black Super Sport inlay between clear brake lamps, a fresh “Chevelle by CHEVROLET” emblem and polished exhaust tips.
Although the second generation Super Sport's ferocious Turbo Fire V8 was conservatively rated at 450 horsepower, it actually punched the dyno somewhere north of 500. Pull this classic's stainless hood pins and you'll find a correct cowl induction system that's cleanly integrated into a completely finished, Satin Black frame. At the center of that frame, a correctly decaled, single-snorkel air cleaner forces oxygen into a big Holley carburetor and correct Winters intake. At the back of that intake, a traditional points distributor sequences fire through high quality Packard TV R Suppression cables. Below those cables, correct exhaust manifolds and old school emissions hardware add value and exclusivity. And in front of that hardware, GM hoses channel water past a correct fan and rebuilt alternator with the help of a beefy radiator and familiar tower clamps. During the car's extensive restoration, the big Chevy was completely overhauled and decked in glossy orange paint. And, from its Delco battery and mirrored valve covers all the way to its stainless fluid lines and fresh brake booster, the monster mill looks much nicer than anything that left GM's factories.
Naturally, this convertible's road-ready chassis has been restored to the same high standards as the aforementioned body panels and engine compartment. A nice coat of Satin Black paint provides a great foundation for a slew of tags, paint marks and factory-accurate details. Behind the stout big block, an M22 Muncie 'Rock Crusher' sends power to a correct posi-traction rear end that's equipped with meaty, 4.10 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 true-dual pipes that breathe through factory replacement mufflers and rear-mounted resonators. And power flows to the pavement via stylish Super Sport wheels and F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas tires. The car's frame, free of any major damage, is finished in satin to complement its rust-free 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 Delco AM radio. 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 “SS” emblems between crank windows and factory door locks. In front of the driver, a satin-spoked Chevrolet Rally 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.
At roughly half the cost and twice the fun of a numbers-matching piece, this killer Chevelle is the total package. With a powerful LS6, tough Muncie 4-speed and first class restoration, it's a fully-sorted classic that virtually spells the term “bragging rights”. If you're ready to add some fresh firepower to your automotive arsenal, don't miss the chance to take home this storied Chevrolet legend!

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.
