West Coast Classics are proud to present a beautiful example of this customized 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle 2 door Hardtop which has been customized as an SS clone with SS emblems and hood and built with a 454 V8 engine matched to a 4 spd manual transmission and a 12 Bolt Posi-traction limited slip differential rear end and which is finished in a striking classic 'Silver' tribute color with 'Black' racing stripes with a matching 'Black' interior. Ready to show or cruise.

The Chevrolet Chevelle needs no introduction and is legendary amongst muscle car enthusiasts as a rugged car and therefore a perfect candidate for customizing - this particular example has a later model 454 V8 (casting # 14015445 1975-87) engine matched to a new 'Richmond T10' 4 spd manual transmission and a new 12 bolt Positraction 3:42 rear end with alloy axles.

This 1970 Chevy Chevelle 2 Door Hardtop Custom is a very striking custom which resembles a factory SS model and is favorably equipped with a Big Block 454 V8 matched to a 4 spd manual transmission! In 1970, Chevrolet introduced the ultimate powerhouse for its midsize muscle car and was voted the best muscle car of all by 'Car and Driver'. It was also the year GM lifted its displacement ban on all its midsize muscle cars. Today, it is regarded as one of the most fearsome muscle cars of all time. GM built the car to show up Ford and Mopar and the all out performance of the LS-6 454 had the competition shuddering. The all-out performance engine of 1970 had a factory rating of 450 bhp and no other muscle car production engine had a higher rating. By 1972, the last year of these desirable models, the bhp had dropped to 270 bhp.
This particular car's original factory engine was exchanged at some point for this later model Big Block 454 V8. The Chevelle SS combined Chevrolet's largest engines with its midsize car to give outrageous results and the original SS factory option package included the F41 suspension with stiffer front springs to compensate for the weight of the big block engine, a black finished grille, a left hand remote control sport rearview mirror, Super Sport SS emblems, power front disc brakes and rear drum brakes, dual exhausts to optimize the engines performance, the factory option cowl induction hood with a vacuum controlled flap at the top of the hood to draw air in from the high pressure area at the base of the windshield to help the engine exploit its power, bucket seats, the special cowl induction domed hood with NASCAR style tie down hood pins which secured the hood from lifting during high speeds and wide wheels and tires on 5 spoke Magnum 500 steel wheels.
This particular SS tribute 'clone' has very striking classic 'Silver with Black racing stripes' paintwork which is in absolutely exceptional condition, as it the whole car. Please note that the car also has an after market CD player installed under the dashboard (see photos below). This particular car must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated - the engine is extremely strong and responsive with excellent oil pressure and no oil leaks and which sounds absolutely magnificent, the 4 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the engine temperature always remains cool.
This is one very fine example of a highly desirable and collectible muscle car with no rust or signs of any previous accidents or bodywork with its seemingly all original sheet metal in turn-key ready daily appreciating, daily driving and daily head-turning condition! An all time classic American muscle car that needs little or no introduction!
