Car description

A 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 is already a beautiful thing. Especially when you take a rare convertible body and give it a full restoration that went right down to the undercarriage. Then you add huge performance upgrades like LS6 specs to the big block, four-wheel disc brakes, five-speed manual, and much more. Now you realize you have the Chevelle that's the envy of everyone, including other Chevelles.From the moment this car comes into view, all of your senses tell you there was a ton invested in keeping it in superior condition. And this care is justified considering that Chevrolet only produced 7,511 examples of the ultra desirable 1970 Chevelle convertibles. The factory-correct Cranberry Red is bold and bright thanks to the full restoration around 1,200 miles ago that included a respray with plenty of modern clearcoat, and a professional hand applying it. But the true artwork to this car is also making sure that the panels are straight and uniform to give the color a great canvas. The result is when the sunshine hits this droptop, it showcases all those great curves that made this Chevelle so desirable from day one. On body and paint this nice, only the best brightwork will do. So everything from the trim around the wheels, to the extremely well integrated bumpers are mirror-like. But undoubtedly, one of our favorite details is the dual white stripes. Not only does the package look best when painted on, but also because it matches the newer white folding top, this Chevelle looks awesome with the roof up or down. And of course, the stripes are a great part of the SS package. The intimidation continues with all the correct badging, blacked-out grille, hood pins, and a proper cowl induction hood. The addition of the large 18-inch Billet Specialties alloys only add to this awesome aggressiveness.You're going to love riding with the top down because the red interior and red convertible boot cover combine with the exterior red to give off a very cool mix of premium and performance. It gets better as you slip inside and realize there were large investments in keeping this convertible looking period-correct, but with all the right upgrades. High back bucket seats and a center console give you the best seating position, and you get the full round gauge panel, including large tach. This is a fairly rare power windows car with a power convertible top, so you don't even need to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience. As you gaze over this pristine interior, you spot some obvious upgrades like how the steering wheel is now a Billet Specialties unit that matches the exterior wheels. There are also more subtle additions, like how the AM/FM stereo appears original, but it's really an upgraded Retrosound unit with aux input. Have you counted the gears on the stick shift yet?On a car so nicely restored thus far, you'll love to see that the engine bay continues this high caliber presentation. Even better is that you're looking at a 454 cubic-inch big block with some serious power. Without a suffix code or documentation, we have been informed that it was built in the spirit of the legendary LS6 V8, and even includes the correct LS6 intake and air grabber diaphragm sealing to the cowl induction hood. Quite frankly, we have no trouble believing the LS6 style-build because this restored Chevelle also comes with the dyno sheet proving its 518 horsepower. While the thunderous dual exhaust announces your power superiority, don't forget to see its path in the undercarriage photos. There you see this is the kind of restoration that you'll put a mirror under the car during shows. Then again, you might not get off the road that long because this SS was also upgraded to be a serious driver. Tubular A-arm front suspension, thick sway bars, fully adjustable coilovers front & rear, and Baer four-wheel disc brakes all makes this one of the best handling Chevelles you'll ever see. And since the five-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the monster V8, this is a muscle car that can also be your backroads friend.If you're ready to grab the best of everything, this rare Chevelle convertible is ready for you right now. But don't hesitate, this one-of-a-kind king won't wait too long. Call now!!
