Cars International Heritage are delighted to offer for sale this iconic 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Muscle Car powered by the legendary 454 LS5 Big Block V8.
Chevrolets first foray into the world of Muscle Cars was with the Chevelle Super Sport (or SS). Introduced in 1964 the early Chevelle SS soon became a contender to its closest rival the Pontiac GTO and it wasn’t long before the Chevelle became the ultimate Muscle car where numbers are all important.
By 1970, the Chevelle SS had reached its ultimate specification with a huge 454 cubic inch (7.5-litre) big block V8 that could be ordered with an advertised 450bhp and 500lb ft of torque.
With a 0-60mph time of a little over 5 seconds, the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 was one of the fastest accelerating road cars in the world and is highly collectable today.
The 1970 Chevelle SS was available with two power options, the LS6 engine with a quoted 450bhp or you could order an LS5 equipped car with 360bhp. LS5 cars are rarer than LS6 cars in terms of total production for the year! This Chevelle’s correct LS5 454 was fully rebuilt during restoration in the US. A functional ZL2 cowl induction system forces air into a single-snorkel air cleaner that’s sits on a correct Rochester 4-barrel carburretor.
This highly collectable Chevelle has been subjected to an extensive body off restoration to original factory specification. The F41 heavy duty suspension, which includes thicker coils, heavy duty shocks, a larger diameter front sway bar, a standard rear sway bar, boxed rear control arms and upper rear cross braces have been fully restored with correct detailing.
An original Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed, which wears a correct “70 CF” ID tag above a matching 204152 partial VIN, sends power to a correct 12 bolt rear end.
Hand-painted Super Sport wheels have period correct F70-14 Firestone Wide Ovals around “SS” branded center caps. Possibly one of the best colour combinations offered for the 1970 model year and proper americana, this Chevelle has correctly restored GM code 762 Medium Blue interior with the traditional horseshoe shifter. Spotless stainless trim and correct “SS” emblems on bright chrome handles, a high-quality reproduction GM Rally wheel is mounted to a tilting factory column complete the beautiful interior. A fully restored trunk anchors a full-size Super Sport spare wheel with Wide Oval tyre and correct jack assembly between a new mat and fresh decklid factory decal.
Full number matching Chevelle SS cars are rare and, in the US, have an asking price at roughly twice the price of this beautifully restored and correct specification Chevelle for sale in the UK. If you’re looking to own one of the world’s most sought-after muscle cars, this Chevelle is ready to show.
