Michigan Man Restores 1970 Chevy Chevelle To Honor His Older Brother’s Memory

Steve Simon restored to this Chevelle as a tribute to his late brother.

Steve Simon’s brother passed away in late 2013. When he died, he had owned a 1970 Chevy Chevelle that Steven had given to him after owning it for a few years. To honor his memory, Steve made sure the car would be made into something that would make him proud, and it was well executed.

Steve bought the car in 1985 and has owned it for three years before giving it to his older brother, Price. The brothers had a deep bone over their love of vintage cars, specially old school muscle cars.

“We went to a lot of car shows and his attention was always going to the muscle cars,” Simon said.

The 1970 Chevy Chevelle was kept safely in storage for the most part, taking it out only for special occasions. Price deeply loved the car and wanted to keep it safe.

“This was his baby. He would take it out every once and awhile and his face just lit up. And he had all kinds of people after him to sell it. Wanted to buy it, but he would never sell it,” Simon said.

When Price died, Steve had been the owner of the Chevelle again, and he decided to restore it to its former glory. When completed, the 1970 Chevy Chevelle went on display inside the Pavilion in Frankenmuth for this year’s Auto Fest.

“Anything he did, he gave it a 110%, and so that’s what I did,” Simon said.
