As one of the most popular muscle cars of all time, the 1970 Chevelle SS 454 finished second to the 1969 Camaro as the ultimate Chevrolet for the divisions first hundred years (1911-2011). But to many muscle car enthusiasts, the Chevelle will ALWAYS be the ultimate Chevy; and this Fathom Blue LS6 powered Super Sport represents the best of what an LS6 was and is! The recipient of a complete frame-off restoration, this fully documented, real deal LS6 car backs a numbers matching big block with a correct M22 'rock crusher' transmission, and wraps it all in a highly desirable Fathom Blue on Blue Vinyl combination. If you're in the market for a top notch example of one of the best Chevrolets ever produced, this SS 454 is just what you're looking for!

Assembled in Kansas City, Missouri and shipped to Auran Chevrolet in Minot, North Dakota, this real deal LS6 Chevelle received a high quality restoration by the long-time North Dakota owner, during which no expense was spared to bring the car back to assembly line condition. When the body was fully prepped and arrow straight, its panels were bathed in correct GM code 28 Fathom Blue and detailed with correct white rally stripes. After the clearcoat was given sufficient drying time, the entire car was laboriously color sanded and buffed until it presented a ripple-free finish which is as smooth as glass. Today, this top dog Chevelle sits as a spectacular piece of iconic muscle which has had every single nook and crevice faithfully prepped and finished to better-than-new standards.

Absolutely no corners were cut during this awesome Chevelles restoration. At the front of the car, a timeless Chevrolet split grille hangs correct “Chevelle” and “SS” emblems between a full chrome bumper and correct stainless trimmed T3 headlights which reflect the sun and light up the night. Above that grille, factory hood pins combine with a functional cowl induction system and correct “454” emblems, to give the car an aggressive, race-ready appearance. And great looking factory optioned drip rails combine with well-maintained stainless trim to highlight like-new windows. At the sides of the car, a chrome driver's side mirror looks great above stainless wheel well moldings and chrome GM door handles. And behind the front tires, white “SS” emblems with red “454” inlays let everyone know just how serious this Chevelle is. At the back of the car, a full bumper frames a nice black Super Sport insert which is anchored by a pair of crystal clear tail light lenses. And a fresh “Chevelle by Chevrolet” trunk emblem perfectly complements correct stainless exhaust tips.

Power comes from the cars original, numbers matching 454 cubic inch LS6 V8 which was underrated from the factory at a very impressive 450 horsepower. Fully restored and ready to hit the show field, the Chevy Orange block wears a correct 3963512 casting number, a March (C) 4th (4) of 1970 (70) date code, a correct CRV (454/4-barrel/M22) suffix stamp and a correct 0K184387 partial VIN. At the top of the engine, a correctly decaled air cleaner filters wind from a functional cowl induction system into a correct Holley carburetor and a correct Winter intake. At the sides of that intake, mirror-like valve covers loom correct Packard TV R Suppression wires between correct factory decals and fully restored exhaust manifolds. At the back of the engine you'll find a correct points distributor beside a fresh wiper motor and a like-new brake booster; and at the front of the engine, a correct radiator utilizes reproduction hoses and correct tower clamps to pipe water past a correct smog pump and a correct 37A alternator. Naturally, the cars satin black engine bay is fully detailed and ready for show from its tagged Delco Energizer battery to its factory replacement washer fluid tank. And all belts, hoses and soft parts are in excellent condition and ready to hit the road.

The theme of 'better than new' also extends underneath the car where you'll find fresh floors and a highly detailed chassis. Behind the stout big block, a correct M22 'rock crusher' 4-speed, which wears a 3925661 (1970) casting number and a P0B20C date stamp that decodes as a Muncie (P) M22 ( C ) built on February (B) 20th (20) of 1970 (0), sends power to a 12 bolt Posi-traction rear end with easy driving 3.31 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a completely restored F41 double A-arm front and four link rear suspension that is equipped with a manual steering rack, correct sway bars, correctly tagged coil springs and correct spiral shocks. The power front disc, rear drum brake system has been fully rebuilt from its rotors all the way to its lines; and the cars restored manifolds dump gases into a factory replacement exhaust system which includes mandrel bent pipes and correct rear mounted resonators. The cars frame, free of any major damage, is painted black to match the cars good looking black floor boards and in keeping with the 454 up top, much attention has been paid to making sure everything is clean and ready to go. At the corners, correctly painted Super Sport wheels wear F70-14 Firestone Wide Oval tires that look right at home in this Chevelles big wheel wells.

Take a look inside this Chevelle and you'll find a like-new Medium Blue Metallic interior, which feels good and looks great! The front and rear bench seats were rebuilt with fresh foam and new seat covers, show no virtually wear at all, and really stand out above the cars dark blue carpet and fresh rubber floor mats. At the front of the car, a blue topped and black trimmed dash hangs rebuilt gauges above a correct Delco AM radio and a chrome Muncie floor shifter. And at the sides of the car, fade-free blue door panels center pristine stainless trim and new chrome handles around straight and pliable armrests. At the top of the car a tight blue headliner hangs a clear dome light between correct roof mounted shoulder belts. And at the back of the car, a fully restored trunk secures a fresh spare tire and a correct bumper jack between a new decklid decal and a correct mat. Everything in this interior from the correct tilt steering column to the straight rear package tray looks like a million bucks. And I think most Chevelle fans agree that while Fathom Blue and Ivory look good together, it's refreshing to see a blue on blue car that looks just as cool and just as inviting!

Documentation for this car includes an original General Motors build sheet, the cars original door decal, a North Dakota tag and a North Dakota registration.
