With a freshly built 454, a close ratio 'rock crusher' transmission and a super slick black on blue color combination, this incredible Chevelle provides you with the exclusive opportunity to own a car that looks, drives and draws a summer show crowd just as well as any numbers matching LS6 car for HALF the price. Want some turnkey muscle that'll melt your winter blues into bright white tire smoke? This freshly restored Chevelle is just what the doctor ordered!
Looking mean and sounding positively evil, this killer black and blue Chevelle rolled off GM's Atlanta, Georgia assembly line during the first week of January, 1970 to begin life as a simple V8 Malibu sport coupe. For years it would soldier on with a tepid black cloth interior and a not-so-appealing combination of Fathom and Astro Blue exterior paint. Last year, we decided to spice things up a bit and commissioned Jim's Chevelle Alley in Urbana, Ohio to restore it to better than new condition and turn it into a top notch LS6 tribute. Once the body was arrow straight, a slick coat of Phantom Blue paint was applied along with GM code 19 Tuxedo Black SS stripes and buffed to the mirror-like shine you see here. Upon completion, the reborn Chevelle SS was shipped directly to our RK Motors Charlotte showroom where the stares haven't stopped, the jaws continue to drop, and it looks like a million bucks from every angle!
Arguably the most popular year for Chevelles, 1970 featured dual headlights, curvaceous quarters, and a tidy greenhouse that almost gives the car a fastback appearance. At the front of the car you'll find perfect new T3 headlights with new chrome housings at the sides a stainless trimmed grille which hangs a prominent new “SS” emblem above a showroom fresh front bumper. Behind that grille, a functional and correct cowl induction hood props new hood pins and correct “Cowl Induction” badging in front of all new glass that is bordered by pristine stainless trim and correct option B90 chrome drip rails. At the sides of the car, new “SS454” badges with white and red inlays combine with fresh stainless steel wheel well trim, chrome GM door handles and a correct chrome driver's side mirror to add nice visual details to the cars liquid smooth body. And at the back of the car, a new chrome “Chevelle by Chevrolet” emblem hangs over new brake lights, a new body-width chrome bumper which features a great looking black Super Sport inlay, and traditional stainless exhaust tips that ensure this Chevelle is both seen and heard.
In 1970 the LS6 Turbo Fire 454 in the Chevelle Super Sport was conservatively rated at 450 horsepower but likely produced well over 500. This car's ferocious sounding 454 has been accurately built and detailed to fool all but the most enlightened classic car fans. Give the hood pins a solid pull and you'll find a fully functional cowl induction system that's cleanly integrated into a completely finished satin black hood. At the center of that cowl induction system, a correctly decaled satin black air cleaner forces air into a Holley four barrel carburetor which sits on a correct Winter aluminum intake. At the back of the intake, a correct points distributor sends spark through Standard Triple Silicone wires which snake around a new set of factory correct chrome valve covers and correct reproduction exhaust manifolds. At the front of the engine, reproduction GM hoses with correct tower clamps channel water to and from the radiator; and new V-belts spin a fresh alternator and a correct Frigidaire AC compressor behind a correct fan and correct shroud. From its correct reproduction Delco Energizer battery and new wiring harness to its “Delco Moraine” branded brake booster and highly accurate decals, this engine bay is as well done as anything that left GMs factories. And I'm willing to bet it would take the average muscle car connoisseur quite a bit of time to realize that this cars Chevy Orange 454 wasn't bolted in on the assembly line over 40 years ago.
Underneath the car, you'll find a factory fresh chassis and floorpans that, like the cars exterior panels and LS6 engine, have been restored to the absolute highest standards. A top notch M22 Muncie 'rock crusher' 4-speed transmission sends power to an era correct 12 bolt Posi-Traction rear end with pavement pounding 4.11 gears. Bolted to that chassis is a factory correct suspension that was fully rebuilt during the restoration and equipped with correct power steering, drilled and slotted power front discs and correct power rear drums. Exhaust is handled by a mandrel bent aluminized system which runs from the cars correct gray manifolds to great sounding Flowmaster dual chamber mufflers and new stainless tips. And fresh fuel lines send fuel from a new stainless tank to the Holley carburetor while new stainless brake lines carry fluid from the Delco brake booster to all four corners of the car. Connecting this awesome Chevelle to the pavement is four new G70-14 Goodyear Polyglas radials that are mounted around 14 inch Super Sport II rally wheels, pristine stainless trim rings and authentic SS center caps.
Inside this great looking Chevelle, you'll find a fully restored black vinyl interior which is 100% ready for show! During the restoration all the cars weathered and worn panels were completely replaced with new pieces, and the solid floors were covered with new black carpet. Like-new black bucket seats provide an excellent contrast against the cars blue exterior paint and, along with slick new door panels, feature show worthy stainless trim and factory fresh chrome handles. Overhead, factory correct seat belts are tucked into their clips below a tight-fitting headliner; and between the seats, a pristine black console houses a chrome Hurst shifter and white cue ball knob inside of excellent looking satin finished trim. At the front of the car, a straight black dash hangs a new black instrument panel with crystal clear gauges above a factory correct AM radio and chrome trimmed vents for the cars heater and r34 equipped air conditioning system. In front of the driver, a tilt steering column holds an excellent looking reproduction GM rally wheel above great looking chrome trimmed foot pedals. And behind the cockpit, a fully restored trunk features correct spatter paint, a new houndstooth mat, and a correct jack and spare tire.
Included with this Chevelle is memory card with detailed restoration photos.
Documented, numbers matching Chevelle Super Sport LS6s are excellent collector cars.
