It\'s not just the awesome color combo, cool stock interior, and the original big block V8 under the hood that makes this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 so desirable. What truly sets this one apart is the fact that after everyone is finished looking at the stunning details, you can amaze them again with paperwork like the dealer invoice and factory buildsheet that proves you have a real-deal numbers-matching Super Sport.
When you have a true Super Sport, the appeal is as clear as black and white... and this example takes that sentiment literally. It looks great as the factory-correct Classic White has been given a professional respray where the modern clearcoat delivers a terrific luster. This added shine really highlights the straight bodywork with sharp creases and uniform gaps. Since this is a true Super Sport, you\'ll be happy to see plenty of time invested in getting all the SS details right. This includes the cowl induction hood, hood pins, badging, and mag-style Super Sport wheels. And of course, special attention was paid to getting those iconic dual black stripes painted on straight and correct. Add in mirror-like chrome bumpers, and this hardtop loves to stand out in all the best ways.
Not only does the black interior go well with the exterior color theme, but it\'s also impressively vintage. The well-preserved/restored interior shows there has been an eye for keeping this like a time capsule. The door panels, dash, and carpeting have the unmistakable look of correct and quality pieces. Plus, we all love bucket seats and a center console in a vintage muscle machine. Even the horseshoe shifter is practically an icon all on its own. And the dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a great view of the round gauge package with large speedo and tach. All the right factory-style pieces are still in place, including the time in the seatbacks, working dome light, working horn, and a Delco AM/FM radio cranking out the tunes.
You\'ll love lifting the hood at car shows because the engine bay has a terrific and tidy look of power. The bright block, shining valve covers, and air topper with diaphragm sealing it to the fresh air cowl hood: it\'s all what we love to see on a SS 396. So it only gets better when you know this is the numbers-matching L34 big block. As you dig deeper you\'re going to see that they took the time to keep it looking correct, right down to the GM hoses and Delco distributor. The stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is also numbers-matching. Plus, the clean undercarriage shows off the right SS features, like the boxed trailing arms, rear sway bar, and 12-bolt rear end. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As to remind you that this muscle car classic is also an excellent cruiser.
This coupe is amazing inside and out, and so the paperwork is really the cherry on top. Items like the factory buildsheet, dealer invoice, owner\'s manual, and original protect-o-plate warranty card are true rarities. Not only do they prove this is a terrific Super Sport, but you also see a part of history that suggests this has led a desirable life likely only in the Carolinas. This SS 396 is distinctive, elegant, documented, and immensely powerful. So if you\'re a Chevelle lover, or just appreciate true muscle car royalty, this is an opportunity you don\'t want to slip by.
