----------

Ever dreamed of ripping through the gears in an LS6-powered Chevelle but just don't care to wait on a years-long restoration? Then this national award-winning coupe is the perfect solution! The beneficiary of a nut-and-bolt rotisserie rebuild that was completed in the Spring of 2015, it's a fully sorted bruiser that'll devour the road and display proudly any time you feel like stopping. So, if you're looking for the perfect way to mix a whole lot of show with a whole lot of go, still your gaze on this stunning A-Body!

BODYWORK/TRIM

There was certainly 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. Fully stripped, bolted to NOS fenders and fitted with a pair of fresh quarters, this glossy Chevy looks great finished with black Super Sport stripes and thoroughly buffed clear. Shut lines look straight all around, with rockers, doors and lids that work well together. And the end result is one high caliber classic that netted 996 out of 1,000 points on its way to achieving a Platinum Award at the 38th Annual International Eckler's Chevy Classics Show.

Aesthetically, many enthusiasts believe the '70 Chevelle introduced a host of excellent refinements that transformed the 'good' design of the '69 Chevelle 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 correct 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. Beneath those frames, bold “SS454” badges combine with dent-free fender trim, traditional door handles and a flashy 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.

ENGINE

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 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 decaled single-snorkel air cleaner forces oxygen into a big Holley carburetor and correct aluminum 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 split the difference between old school emissions hardware, hypereutectic pistons and a solid lifter cam. That cam cycles 11 to 1 compression with the help of a .030 overbore block. And at the front of that block, GM-branded 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-topped battery and mirrored valve covers all the way to its Delco brake booster and stainless fluid lines, the monster mill looks much nicer than anything that left GM's factories.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Naturally, this A-Body's road-ready chassis has been restored to the same high standards as its slick profile and clean 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 original M22 'Rock Crusher' hangs a correct 3925661 casting number between a Muncie (P) M22 (C) assembled on May (E) 24th (24), 1970 (0) build stamp and matching partial VIN. That tough gear grinder spins power to a correct “CRW” stamped 12-bolt, which spins a posi-traction differential around meaty, 4.10 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a familiar F41 Special Performance Suspension, which is equipped with factory power steering, heavy-duty sway bars, boxed control arms, and stiffer springs and shocks. The car's rebuilt power front disc and rear drum brakes are present, accounted for and function exceptionally well. The aforementioned exhaust manifolds dump spent gases into true-dual pipes that breathe through factory replacement mufflers and rear-mounted resonators. Power meets the pavement via stylish Super Sport wheels and F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas tires. And, in keeping with its raucous 454, much attention has been paid to making sure everything under this Chevelle is virtually spotless.

INTERIOR

Decked in correct Black vinyl, this coupe's fully restored interior features a host of new components. Its slick front bucket and rear bench seats, which feature embossed weave patterns that were designed to keep passengers' backs cool, show hardly any signs of wear. In front of those seats, a correct Super Sport dash hangs deluxe telemetry above a correct Delco pushbutton radio. Below that dash, fresh black carpet, which is protected by thick plastic floor mats, centers a chrome Muncie shifter inside an attractive, stainless-trimmed console. At the sides of that carpet, clean door panels proudly display spotless “SS” emblems. In front of the driver, a thin Super Sport steering wheel keeps everybody pointed in the right direction. And behind the passengers, a fully restored trunk centers a full-size spare tire between a new mat and correct decklid decals.
