This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle 454 is the muscle car that checks all the right boxes. It's a factory all-black car that has been restored so that it's just as award-worthy as it is mean-looking. That means growling big block power, a crisp hardtop body, and a comfy A/C interior are all part of this iconic coupe's total package.
This one looks just as awesome in person as it does in the pictures. The factory-correct Tuxedo Black has been professionally resprayed with a modern clearcoat. And even before the first drop of black went down, they made sure the panels were looking great. The result is the kind of work that will make you swear they make black mirrors as the sunlight dances evenly across the sheetmetal. Complementing this paint's shine is a nice package of trim, bezels, and form-fitting chrome bumpers. Plus, this has all the sporty details you love, like the SS badging and the power bulge of the super scoop hood. And the taut black vinyl roof is the ideal addition when you want a classic that looks both powerful and distinguished. The same goes for the upgraded Intro 18-inch alloys.
This was born with a black bucket seat interior, and that completes the ultra-desirable triple black package (paint, roof, and interior.) And the inside was just as carefully restored as the outside, so this is a true midnight hero. You'll love the details, like the texture of the seats and the bright trim throughout the interior. And because family and friends will want to go for a ride, there are nice features to keep them happy like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. But the best treats are reserved just for you. Bucket seats, a center console, and a driver-oriented dash make this feel like an individual experience. Plus, you have the iconic horseshoe shifter, power steering, and the proper dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a good view of the full gauge package with large speedo and tach.
The engine bay has the tidy look of an award-worthy presentation. Clean and dark walls draw your attention to the monster in the middle. The polished Chevrolet valve covers, bright air topper w/callout, and a bold orange block looks like they're radiating power. And this one certainly is, because the 454 cubic-inch big block has performance upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, Comp Cams camshaft, and headers that add even more power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Plus, there are nice supporting components, like upgraded pulleys, fresh belts, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan (to help keep you running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping.) The TH400 three-speed transmission is the ideal pairing, because it's a stout unit that can handle the extra power while giving you the ease of an automatic. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, this really shows you the level of detail in the restoration. Plus, you'll spot great driving features, like front disc brakes, modern performance tires, and sway bars front & rear.
There's barely over 4,000 miles on this build, and the quality really shows. So if you love a powerful package with all the right features, don't let this Chevelle slip away, call today!
