Hemmings Find of the Day – 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle

Published in

McLovin-plated big-block-powered 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle for sale on From the seller’s description:

 The car has a 454 with an aggressive cam, HEI ignition and a Holly 750 double pumper carburetor. The transmission is a TCI Super Street Fighter TH 400 that’s about 2-3 years old, with a Hughes 2500 stall converter. I replaced new heavy duty u-joints at the same time, as well as installing a brand new Detroit True Trac differential and new 3.73 ring and pinion. It has a Ford 9 inch rear end with 31 spline axles, and a ladder bar with diagonal rod set up. There are adjustable coil overs on all four corners. I rebuilt the front end a year ago, and installed new CPP tubular control arms on top and bottom, and also new tie rods, ball joints, bushings. The brakes include a new dual chamber master cylinder, and booster. 11″ discs in front and drums in the back. I installed a new Dewitt’s aluminum radiator, with twin 11″ Spal fans, new hoses and heater core, which do a great job even in gridlock traffic. Also, there is a new 140 amp alternator to handle the extra electrical equipment. The previous owner installed a remote starter solenoid, so the car cranks well after driving. All chrome looks new. The interior looks very good with bucket seats, aftermarket center console, and round gauges. The frame is solid and has no evident rust after crawling under it for 3 years. The body has good paint. There is no rust evident on the body. It’s not a trailer queen, but shows very well. The car has 20 inch wheels, with Continental Extreme Contact DW 245/40/20 in the front and Pirelli PZero 285/40/20 in the back. All tires have less than 700 miles on them and have no patches. The stereo is a Retrosound unit with 5″ kick panel speakers, 6×9’s in the rear deck, and a Kicker 10″ enclosed subwoofer in the trunk powered by a Pioneer amp. There are new Auto Meter gauges under the dash, and a Hurst shifter. It needs a new fuel level sender.
