Chevrolet first introduced the intermediate-sized Chevelle in 1964 and it became an immediate sales success. The popular car was just what America wanted; Chevrolet sold over 440,000 of them in 1970 and the advertising informed us that the Chevelle's performance "starts as soon as you're seated."
This SS tribute Chevelle is offered in splendid red coachwork with contrasting SS rally black stripes. Clearly very well cared for by an American muscle car enthusiast, it has been sympathetically upgraded to offer real muscle car looks and performance. The 307ci, V8 is coupled to a TH350 transmission with aluminium intake, 600 CFM Edelbrock carburettor and March dress up pulleys. This Chevelle also offers a 10 bolt rear axle, QA1 suspension upgrade with 1" lowering springs, stainless duel exhaust, cowl induction bonnet, front disc brake conversion kit with drilled and grooved discs and power brakes under the 18x8 front and 18x9.5 rear Boss 338 wheels. We are informed that the Chevelle has all original body panels covered with a 2K clear over base paint.
It comes with a numbers-matching drive train and old MoTs dating back to the early 80s plus a fresh MoT test certificate until August 2016 giving any prospective buyer confidence in the mileage. Also supplied with the original Owner's Handbook, original factory vehicle build sheet and paperwork for all new parts fitted, this Chevelle wouldn't look out of place as the centerpiece of any muscle car collection.
