Description:
This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute has a cool custom color theme, and more importantly, serious big block power. It makes for the right mix of muscle and distinction that\'s offered for quite an attractive price.

Burgundy is an attractive color for this coupe. It looks like they went to the 1970 Chevelle color palette and mixed the vibrant Cranberry Red with the deeper/sophisticated Black Cherry. This later application has a nice gloss and depth that really looks great out in the sunlight. And because the paint has a hint of red aggression, this Chevelle maximizes the speedy appeal with upgrades like the cowl hood, hood pins, and large exhaust tips. It also means the deeper tones of red work quite well with the coordinated black accenting. Those racing stripes are painted on for added distinction, and the taut vinyl roof is the perfect complement to a muscle car with a touch of added premium sophistication. And there\'s more darkness in the backout grille, rear panel, and SS-style mag wheels.

The white upholstery is a distinctive touch for this coupe. It may need some added love for fickle classic lovers, but as you look at it fully, you can see the attraction is about a driver-ready package. That\'s why high traffic areas like the carpeting and door armrests are done in black. It feels good to slip into the high-back driver\'s bucket seat. You have classic features like a horseshoe shifter in the center console and the dual-spoke SS steering wheel. And the oil pressure gauge mounted under the dash is a handy addition.

It\'s always great to see a Chevelle engine bay stuffed with big block power. And the tidy setup gives you a clear view of the polished components and powerful additions. This 454 cubic-inch V8 has Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Procomp intake, and long tube headers feeding great-sounding dual exhaust and Flo-Pro mufflers. More than just powerful, this was built to be a great all-around driver with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes w/front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As.

This SS tribute has a few areas that may need some added attention for those looking to show more than drive. But you already know one of the largest reasons you were instantly attracted to this coupe was because the 1970 Chevelle hardtop is a true icon that is a consistent high-dollar classic. And from day one this delivers a sleek style and big power...all for an affordable price. Call now!
