Over the past 106 years, Chevrolet has built a vast empire of lovable offerings. One of the most substantial products of that innovation is the legendary Chevelle. Introduced in 1964 as an affordable mid-size, Chevy's stalwart A-Body was peddled in a wide variety of flavors. But it wasn't until the late sixties that the car sprouted some serious cubic inches and grew into a bona fide muscle car. This clean classic is a documented, exceptionally restored coupe that wraps sinister black paint around fanciful blue trim. And if you're looking for some awesome metal that's unique, attractive and ready to roll, you simply won't find cooler muscle for the money!


In typical '70s Detroit fashion, Chevy's second generation Chevelle, adorned with sculpted surfacing and creases that stretch from stem to stern, is pretty hard to get straight once it's been overhauled or reworked. Fortunately, the metal on this Tuxedo Black beast has been subjected to a concours-level restoration that involved great panel alignment and a healthy attention to detail. The car's classic flanks are very solid, leading us to believe it was a clean, rust-free canvas when the first sheet of sand paper was laid on its muscled body. That body's gaps are better than average, featuring doors that operate with precision, vertical components that are centered in their respective openings and pliable weather stripping. And overall, this road-ready cruiser carries every indication that its high quality rebuild was a well-planned effort.

For 1970, the facelifted Chevelle moved an impressive 634K units. Not only did that high-profile success earn GM big money, it also solidified the nameplate as part of Chevy's oft romanticized 'golden era'. At the front of this coupe, a split grille hangs a prominent "SS" emblem between a small "CHEVELLE" script, stainless-trimmed T3 headlights and a polished bumper. Opposite that bumper, a domed Super Sport hood anchors rebuilt hide-a-way wipers at the base of factory-tint glass that's seated in straight stainless frames. At the base of those frames, chrome door handles, a chrome driver's mirror and white-tinged "SS396" badges complement correct wheel trim. And at the back of the car, a second polished bumper hangs a standard Super Sport inlay between clear brake lights, a fresh "Chevelle by Chevrolet" trunk script and polished stainless exhaust tips.


Gaze in to the car's glossy engine bay and you'll find 396 cubic inches of Chevrolet big block that stacks a correct 3969854 casting number behind a correct "CTX" suffix stamp and matching 552468 partial VIN. At the top of the Chevy Orange mill, a polished and decaled air filter feeds a big Carter 4-barrel, which is sequenced to fresh stainless fluid lines and a reliable mechanical pump. That air/fuel mixture floods a color-keyed intake on the way to beefy Chevrolet heads, which are topped with polished valve covers and a stainless oil cap. At the back of those heads, a traditional points distributor shoots spark through Packard TV R Suppression cables. Below those cables, fully restored exhaust manifolds funnel spent gases in to throaty, true-dual pipes. At the front of those tubes, factory pulleys spin a rebuilt alternator opposite leak-free power steering. In front of those pulleys, a decaled radiator circulates coolant around a correct fan via pliable GM hoses and old school tower clamps. And the car's authentic, restoration-fresh appearance is maintained through high quality detailing that includes correct tags, correct stamps, correct marks, a familiar Delco Moraine brake booster and a reproduction Delco battery.


One look under this sturdy cruiser reveals a solid chassis that's every bit as road-ready as the stout 396. Power flows to the pavement through a tough Muncie M20 4-speed, which spins a correct, "CCW" branded 12-bolt that's loaded with a correct posi-traction differential and correct 3.31 gears. Holding that hot drivetrain off the ground is a tagged F41 Sport Suspension, which mixes factory power steering with power front disc and rear drum brakes. Exhaust flows from the aforementioned manifolds to aluminized pipes, Walker Quiet-Flow mufflers and factory-style resonators. The body's rust-free floors feature clean Red Oxide pigment, bestowed during their detailed restoration. And at the corners of those floors, 14-inch Super Sport Wheels spin F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas meats around stainless trim rings and SS center caps.


Featuring a host of fresh interior components, this coupe's incredible Bright Blue cockpit is splendidly crisp. Its slick bench and bucket seats are firm to the touch, showing no signs of significant wear. In front of those seats, a straight Super Sport dash hangs optional deluxe telemetry beside tagged Delco AM/FM audio. Below that dash, bright carpet floats a curved Muncie shifter between color-keyed floor mats. At the sides of that carpet, pick-free door panels center classy stainless trim and requisite "SS" emblems on bright handles and pliable armrests. In front of the driver, a brushed steering wheel laps a color-keyed column. And behind the passengers, the car's fully restored trunk is finished with a correct jack and full-size spare tire.
