It’s not every day you find a unicorn, but this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 most definitely qualifies as one. You could call lovers of this type of a car a cult, but that cult is pretty large and inclusive, so it’s more like a crowd-pleaser. Even non-car people will appreciate a beauty like this, which appears to be absolutely immaculate. This car went through an extensive frame-off restoration to ensure it looks perfect through and through.
The true star of this show is the earth-shattering LS-5 454 V8 that lurks out of sight in the engine bay. Officially, it makes 360-horsepower. Even by today’s performance standards that’s pretty solid. You also get a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission for plenty of gear-rowing fun. Of course, all that power is directed to the rear axle. Power steering, power brakes, and AC are all included from the factory.

This ’70 Chevelle Convertible looks absolutely mesmerizing at first glance, and upon further inspection the fit and finish are truly impressive. That shiny black paint job and white rally stripes are just like what it rolled off the factory wearing. A powered black convertible top allows you to enjoy this ride even when the weather isn’t entirely cooperating.
A Parchment interior adds some nice contrast next to the black exterior. All OE controls and gauges are in their spots, with no details inside the car damaged in the least. To say this ride is ready to take to a show would be stating the obvious. The original owner’s manual and photos of the restoration are included.
Before 1970, GM had a ban on larger displacement engines for midsize cars. The horsepower wars spurred the auto giant to lift that ban, and the Chevelle SS finally came with the mighty 454. Many lust after this car, making it wildly desirable even among classic American muscle. That sentiment doesn’t look to be waning in the least, plus there aren’t too many survivors still kicking around, making this car quite valuable. Vanguard Motor Sales is offering this incredible machine for one very lucky future owner.
