Car is an original 396/402 Big Block Chevy. Car is appears rust free and lived most of its life in a garage. Last driven on the highway in 1998. The engine was switched out for a 427 at some point in its life. I have about a hundred photos. The car is super nice and clean and runs very strong
For sale is a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS with a big block Chevy engine matching number transmission and rear end. We believe the mileage to be correct at 42,010. The car drives VERY STRONG. It is always stored indoors and normally starts on the first crank with the ignition key.
Here is the back story: This car was purchased back around 1998 from the first owner here in Utah. It was purchased by a customer of ours who brought it up on a trailer several times for service work. The customer was a rear gear head and owned three 1970 Chevelle SS cars. One he bought new from the dealership and the other two he bought second hand. He knew the cars inside and out. He stored it from 1998 until a few months ago.
The original customer died and a customer of ours purchased it from his wife to be his first muscle car but recently decided it wasn't what he needed or wanted.
What we know to be original about the car:
We serviced it several times from 2002 until 2014. He passed in 2015.
The Protect O Plate came with the original warranty paperwork and verifies that the car started out life as a real SS Big Block Car.
It has the original TH400 or Turbo 400 Transmission numbers matching.
It also has the original 12 Bolt Rear End Housing numbers matching that has a locker installed. It was set up to drag race. The owner was a rear gear head.
It does NOT have the original engine. Somewhere along the line a 427 engine was installed into the car. We believe that occurred back in 1997
It was an A.C. car as well.
It was a original bucket seat car also. We have a pair year correct bucket seats, but they were not installed.
