1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 The storied Chevelle is one of those timeless designs that looks good no matter how it\'s built. Stock, modified, race, pro-touring, whatever; the clean lines and balanced stance on these tough classics create a confident swagger that\'s universally admired. That means, if you\'re looking to ride in style, you really can\'t go wrong with a Chevrolet A-Body. And when you factor in this ride\'s big block drivetrain, tastefully restored interior and first rate, all-American sheet metal, you get the picturesque profile of an incredible muscle car! For consignment, the Chevrolet Chevelle SS396. This car has been the beneficiary of a full on restoration in 1983 and an engine rebuild around 6 years ago. With its original build sheet and painted a sultry Cranberry Red sporting wide black racing stripes, shiny chrome, full gauges, and in overall very nice condition, its worth giving this example an extra look. Exterior For 1970, the face lifted Chevelle moved an impressive 634 thousand units. Not only did that high-profile success earn GM big money, it also solidified the nameplate as part of Chevy\'s oft romanticized \'golden era\'. At the front of this coupe, a split grille hangs a prominent SS emblem between a small CHEVELLE script, stainless-trimmed headlights and an original chrome bumper. Opposite that bumper, a domed cowl induction Super Sport hood leads the eye to fresh glass that\'s seated in original stainless frames. At the base of those frames, chrome door handles, a chrome driver\'s mirror and white-tinged SS396 badges complement correct wheel trim. And at the back of the car, a second original, chromed bumper hangs a standard Super Sport inlay. All bathed in Cranberry Red respray with just a few minor flaws and wide black stripes racing up the middle of the hood and trunk lid. Topping off the bottom of this car are 14-inch Magnum 500 SS center badged wheels all wrapped in Firestone Firehawk raised white letter radials on all 4 corners. Interior Its correct combination of bench and bucket seats that are firm to the touch, encased in black vinyl, original belts, and high backs. In front of those seats, a straight Super Sport dash frames inserted OEM gauges clean and pristine, providing all the telemetry you\'ll need for those hot laps. Below that dash, black carpet floats a correct chromed Hurst shifter and this is inside a correct console. At the sides of that carpet, door panels center classy stainless trim and requisite SS emblems on bright handles and supple, comfortable armrests. In front of the driver the steering wheel laps a black column. And behind the passengers, the car\'s fully restored trunk is finished with a correct jack and full-size spare tire. The headliner is nice and tight, is also black, and where the shoulder belts hang. Drivetrain Gaze into the gloss black engine bay and you\'ll find the numbers matching L34 396ci V8, all bedecked in orange paint. This mill was rebuilt about 6 years ago and has logged a mere 800 miles since. This block balances a polished and decaled open-air cleaner on a 4 bbl Holley carburetor. This carb rides on a 4bbl intake manifold which feeds Chevrolet heads that are topped by chromed valve covers. A correct Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission is strapped to the rear of the mill, and it pushes power rearward to a correct CCW1219 stamped 12 bolt 3.31 posi rear axle. Undercarriage Well cared for would be the buzzword for the undercarriage, with clean suspension, surface rust free floor pans with plenty of black paint, and straight rust-free rockers. Independent coil springs and a 4 link with coil springs are on for the suspension, and power disc brakes for the front, and power drums for the rear. Dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers is in charge of the exhale and creates a wonderful mechanical symphony from the big V8 mill.
