BIG BLOCK 396 V8, AUTO, 12-BOLT, PWR FRNT DISC, PWR STEER, R134A A/C, MEAN!!
Cortez Silver, black stripes, black interior, 396 cubes under the hood... do you really need to read any further? Some combinations are so timeless that you can picture them in your sleep, and Chevelles like the clean '70 you see here is one of them. It's got the right stance, the right wheels and the right rumble, too!
Outside, this nasty Chevy is coated with a quality paint job accented by twin black stripes that add a menacing look that few muscle cars can pull off, and the Chevelle totally nails it. It's got some signs of use here and there, but nobody's going to nit-pick this machine after it rumbles onto the show field, because it's got The Look. Cortez Silver works rather well with the aggressive stance and oversized rolling stock to give it a sleek, almost hi-tech look, aided by the vinyl top that visually lengthens the car. The usual blacked out grille and SS badge up front are pure intimidation in other cars' rear view mirrors, and aside from some discoloration on the front bumper, the shiny bits on this car look great. This is a car to be proud of.
Inside, the optional bucket seats and center console are a ton sportier than the standard bench. There are fresh seat covers that replicate the originals and the dash pad, headliner, and door panels are in excellent condition. The carpets might be older and show a bit of wear, but not so they need replacement or anything like that. Full instrumentation is in front of you along with an aftermarket AM/FM stereo radio. You'll see the factory heater controls are gone in favor of a brand new aftermarket A/C system. You'll note the button for the line lock under the dash, an indicator that this car was built for combat, and you already know how much we like GM's horseshoe shifter for these cars. In back, the trunk is very neatly finished with black carpets, giving it an upscale look that's very welcome here.
Under the hood is the thumping 396 engine, well dressed and rebuilt to factory specs. A chrome air cleaner is in place along with a matching set of valve covers, which are a big part of the Chevy performance look. A Holley 4-barrel carburetor on an aluminum intake manifold and an MSD ignition system probably add a few horsepower, as do the ceramic-coated long-tube headers. Key it up and there's the familiar whine of a gear drive, which is a big part of the intimidation factor, suggesting this car is ready to rumble. Underneath this car, though, you'll find more performance including a quick-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and a durable 12-bolt rear end, plus a lowered suspension that gives it that awesome stance. Beautiful Halibrand-style wheels looks fantastic tucked into the fenders, and the low-profile rubber does wonders for the A-body's handling abilities.
Head turning, great sounding and even better driving, this sleek Silver SS reminds you why these cars are perennially popular. Call now!
