The early 1970s 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 national award winning Chevelle, a car that wraps rare Golden Brown Metallic paint around butch styling, serious big block power and the kind of hardware that's become the stuff of legend. Fully restored, fully sorted and one of only 28 1972 SS454 convertibles known to exist, THIS is the blue chip muscle car EVERY octane-fueled gearhead wants to own. And now, thanks to your like-minded friends at RK Motors Charlotte, you can haul one home in better-than-new condition! 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!

ONE AND ONLY

One of roughly 70 Chevelle SS454 convertibles produced for the 1972 model year, and the only 1972 Chevelle SS454 convertible painted GM code 57 Golden Brown Metallic, this super cool cruiser wears its striking coat of correct two-stage exceptionally well. Under that high quality paint, an incredibly straight fuselage hangs solid panels that, barring their thorough massage during a body-off restoration, appear to have led a quiet, drama-free existence. Those massaged panels feature-better-than factory alignment and, when opened and closed, sound solid and function well. That functional body's combination of excellent reflections and Kansas-flat surfaces suggests many labor-intensive hours were spent blanketing every inch of its metal with top-notch finish work. And one close look at our high resolution photos reveals a striped and polished Chevy that's ready to run the street and rule the show!

By the early 1970s the Chevelle had become one of America's best-selling cars, and Chevrolet continued to introduce subtle refinements that met increasingly strict crash standards while maintaining the model's handsome and distinct profile. At the front of this svelte drop-top, a monochromatic Super Sport grille flies a small “CHEVELLE” script between Power Beam headlights and a bright chrome bumper. Above that grille, a functional Cowl Induction Hood shades rebuilt hide-a-way wipers between tight pins, stylish stainless trim and crisp glass that's capped by sedate Black vinyl. At the sides of that hood, tailored badging and single-unit marker lamps perfectly complement straight wheel frames, traditional door handles and a subtle sport mirror. And at the back of the car, a second bright bumper centers a simple “SS” emblem between classy taillights, a pristine “Chevelle by Chevrolet” script and polished stainless exhaust tips.

SS454

In 1972, the biggest and baddest motor you could shove between the fenders of a Chevrolet passenger car was the mighty LS5. And this car's original 454, which hangs a familiar 3999289 casting number behind a correct “CRW” suffix stamp and matching 667890 partial VIN, twists 270 factory horses into an impressive 390 lb./ft. of factory torque. At the top of the mighty mill, functional cowl induction funnels wind into a proven Carter 4-barrel that's threaded to fresh stainless fuel lines. Below that carb, a sea of Chevy Orange paint bleeds from the engine's correct intake and tough cast iron heads down behind its correct cast iron exhaust manifolds. At the back of those tubes, a familiar points distributor shoots fire through fresh AC Delco Premium Silicone wires. And in front of those cables, a correct radiator supports a correct fan shroud. Aesthetically, this road ready Chevelle's fresh exterior paint transitions nicely into its Satin Black engine bay. Pliable hoses, garnished with appropriate tower clamps, snake around clean Harrison air conditioning and a correct Frigidaire compressor. And even this Chevy's factory-correct smog equipment is present and accounted for.

ENJOY THE DRIVE

The theme of 'road ready' extends under this fully restored Super Sport, where you'll find clean floors and a rebuilt, factory-accurate chassis. Behind the stout engine, a proven Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed sends power to a correct 12-bolt rear axle. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a correct option F41 Sport Suspension that's finished with heavy duty sway bars, boxed control arms and factory power steering. The car's rebuilt power front disc and rear drum brake system is present, accounted for and functions exceptionally well. The aforementioned manifolds dump spent gases into high performance, true-dual pipes that back baritone turbo mufflers with traditional, rear-mounted resonators. And power flows to the pavement via monochromatic Super Sport wheels that spin 235/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As.

PURE MUSCLE

Decked in familiar Black vinyl, this classic's fully restored interior is both comfortable and inviting. Slick front bucket and rear bench seats show hardly any signs of wear. In front of those seats, a straight and crack-free dash hangs Deluxe Chevelle telemetry above a correct Delco radio. Below that dash, fresh carpet, protected by rugged floor mats, centers a chrome horseshoe shifter inside an attractive, stainless-trimmed console. At the edges of that rug, clean side panels hang spotless stainless trim and requisite “SS” emblems above chrome door hardware and pliable armrests. And the driver spins a simple, “SS” branded steering wheel around an optional, tilting column.

There's no question that this slick brown Chevy is the total package! With a king-of-the-mountain big block, unmatched exclusivity and a fully sorted restoration, it was and still remains an excellent example of 'bragging rights' muscle. If you're ready to put some first class firepower in your automotive arsenal, pick up the phone and enlist this exclusive Chevelle convertible!
