Sometimes it's the little things that make the biggest differences; and when you sell as many Chevelles as we do, it's always nice to see something a bit unique come through the showroom doors. That's why we we're so excited about this fully documented 1970 Super Sport. It combines everything car guys love about the 1970 Chevelle with just enough unique details to set it apart from traditional LS5 and LS6 cars. For example, it has a hot, numbers matching 396 4-speed powertrain which is just as spry as a 454 4-speed car AND much easier to live with. Not to mention, it still wears 100% original sheetmetal, and a mostly original interior, under a correct black and gold color combination instead of everyman's red or blue. And, at roughly half the price of a documented LS6 car, you can enjoy all the perks of big block Chevelle ownership without having to take out a second mortgage. Yes indeed; different is good! And if you're looking for a fully sorted muscle car which is dressed to kill, and ready to eat the lunch of any brazen stoplight challenger or smug show field contestant, this Chevelle is the deal of the century!

Born at GM's Atlanta, Georgia assembly plant in December of 1969, this rare 1970 Chevelle Super Sport was ordered by James Watkins of London Kentucky and sold by White Chevrolet-Pontiac of Manchester, Kentucky. During the next 40 years, the car would pass through the hands of only two owners. And since those owners made impeccable maintenance a top priority, just one new set of seals and one repaint is all the car needed to keep a showroom fresh appearance. Today, it's a highly desirable show piece which wears all original rust-free sheetmetal and displays completely factory accurate panel gaps under brilliant GM code 55 Champagne Gold urethane and correct black D88 hood and decklid stripes.
Most people like to paint their Chevelles either red or blue, but I can't help but think that light colors, like this classy Champagne Gold, show off the lines and details of the A-bodies so much better. At the front of the car, a familiar black accented Chevy crossbar grille hangs a fresh and prominent “SS” emblem between original, stainless bucketed T3 headlights. Below that grille, a new front bumper is absent of any dimples and dings; and above that grille, a functional and correct cowl induction hood carries stainless hood pins in front of great looking “Cowl Induction” badges. At the top of the car, untarnished stainless trim, hide-a-way windshield wipers and fresh chrome drip rails border what appears to be original glass. And at the sides of the car subdued “SS396” badges complement dent-free stainless wheel well trim, good looking chrome door handles and a correct chrome driver's side mirror. At the back of the car, a showroom fresh chrome bumper holds like-new brake lights at the corners of a black resilient rear inlay with a prominent “SS” emblem. And a pristine “Chevelle by Chevrolet” emblem looks perfectly natural above correct, oval shaped stainless steel exhaust tips. The appearance of this Chevelle is just as nice as when it rolled out of the factory almost 42 years ago; and judging by how nice the body is and how fresh the original pieces of trim are, this car has led a pampered and easy existence.
Lift the car's correct ZL2 cowl induction hood and you'll find an original 396 cubic inch L34 V8 which turns stout 10.25 to 1 compression into 350 horsepower and 415 lb./ft. of gravel hurling torque! Displaying a correct 3969854 casting number, a November (K) 10th (10) of 1969 (9) casting date, a correct 10A115473 partial VIN and a correct “CTX” suffix stamp, this legendary Chevrolet engine utilizes oval-port closed chamber heads, a forged steel crankshaft, and hydraulic lifters to own almost any stoplight race it competes in. At the top of the motor, a correctly decaled air cleaner feeds a reliable Quadrajet carburetor which is connected to fresh stainless steel fuel lines. Below that carburetor, a sea of brilliant Chevy Orange paint covers the block from its intake manifold to its oil pan, and correct chrome valve covers hang above restored cast iron exhaust manifolds. At the back of the engine, a correct points distributor sends fire through eight Packard TV R Suppression wires; and at the front of the engine, a reproduction Delco Energizer battery sits next to a correct radiator and correct fan shroud. Aesthetically, this road ready Chevelles fresh exterior paint is perfectly complemented by a reinvigorated satin black engine bay that has been detailed to a very high level and would likely fair very well on the show circuit. New hoses with appropriate tower clamps snake around quick spinning V-belts and a correct alternator; and all the extraneous bits like the cars Delco Moraine brake booster and correct Smog system are present and accounted for.
The theme of 'as good as new' also extends underneath the car where you'll find clean floors and a factory correct chassis. Behind the stout big block, the cars original M21 close ratio 4-speed transmission, which wears a 3925661 (1970) casting number and a P0S07B date stamp that decodes as a Muncie (P) M21 (B) built on November (S) 7th (07) of 1970 (0), sends power to a 12 bolt Posi-traction rear end with correct, easy driving 3.31 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a correct option F41 double A-arm front and four link rear suspension that is equipped with power steering, correct sway bars, correct coil springs and correct gray spiral shocks. The power front disc, rear drum brake system is present, accounted for and functions exceptionally well; and the cars correct cast iron manifolds dump spent gases into a high performance true dual exhaust system which includes free flowing mandrel bent pipes and fresh factory replacement mufflers. The cars frame, free of any major damage, is painted black to match its factory coated floor boards. At the corners, correctly painted Super Sport wheels wear appropriate F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas tires which look good and perform great. And in keeping with the 396 up top, much attention has been paid to making sure everything is clean and ready to go!
Pop open this Chevelles sculpted doors and you'll find a correct GM code 771 Saddle interior which is, for the most part, exactly how it rolled out of the factory. Original Strato bucket seats and original front and rear door panels mix with an original brown headliner and fresh brown carpet to provide interesting contrast to the cars Champagne Gold exterior paint. At the sides of that headliner, correct black shoulder belts are tucked into their clips; and between the seats, correct black lap belts are clipped to the sides of an original Saddle console which houses a pristine chrome Hurst shifter. The door panels feature correct stainless trim and look surprisingly good together given their age; and neither the front nor the rear seats show any signs of a rip, tear or stretching. Inside the straight and original black and brown dash, crystal clear gauges sit above an original AM radio and fresh stainless trim. And from its correct black steering wheel and steering column to its original Astro Ventilation kick panels and original Saddle package tray, this interior is still top notch even after 41 years on the street.
Included with the sale of this pristine Chevelle is: one original build sheet that has been pulled from the car, one original build sheet that it still on the car, an original pre-delivery sheet and window sticker, the cars original owner's manual, a few registrations and inspections slips, copies of the pulled build sheet, pre-delivery sheet and window sticker, photos of the cars door sticker and build sheet location, and a small display board.

What Customers Are Saying
After hearing good things about the people at RK Motors, I contacted them regarding consignment of my street rod. I found Tony Klein to be a pleasure to work with. He was very professional and forthcoming in our communications. He evaluated my vehicle and made suggestions of enhancements which would help ensure the desired result would be achieved in the marketing of the vehicle. We agreed on an acceptable sale price. Following the completion of the recommended items, I brought the vehicle to RK for consignment. After a thorough inspection and correction of some minor issues at what I considered a fair price, the vehicle was offered for sale. It sold quickly with me receiving the agreed value. I would have to repeat the recommendation that I received. RK Motors does what they say they will do, and obtains for the seller a fair and agreed value. What more could you ask for?Doug C.
