A huge sales success from introduction for 1964, Chevrolet’s new A-Body intermediate models delivered a rare combination of clean, attractive styling, extensive options, useful passenger space, and sheer value. Capable of accommodating most every available Chevy power plant from economical inline sixes to small-block V-8s and eventually Chevy’s hot Mark IV big-block engine from 1965, the Chevelle offered something for everyone. Immediately modified for drag racing, NASCAR ovals, and clandestine street races, the new mid-size Chevy immediately gained a formidable performance reputation that continues stronger than ever today.
A major redesign for 1968 brought a sportier new look with a shorter wheelbase and long-hood, short-deck styling with tapered fenders and a rounded beltline. The Chevelle and its upscale Malibu series were available in virtually every conceivable body style, including convertibles, coupes, hardtop coupes, sedans, and station wagons, plus the El Camino pickup. This ‘Second Generation” style continued through 1972 and stands as the most popular today. Through the following years, the Chevelle adapted incredibly well to changing times and automotive tastes, ranging from factory-stock to psychedelic ‘70s “Street Freaks,” to Pro Stock-inspired Pro Street cars, and most recently, the road racing-style Pro Touring theme with modern suspension, handling, and interior improvements matching the high-performance engines lurking underhood.
This Pro Touring 1970 Chevelle SS is an Arizona car with a frame-off restoration, powered by a new GM crate 502 cubic-inch big-block engine rated at 502 horsepower, fitted with a March Performance accessory-drive system and breathing through a jet-coated 3-inch Flowmaster exhaust system. The 502 engine’s massive power is sent to the road by a GM 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission with a lock-up torque converter driving a 3.70:1 12-bolt Posi rear end. Fitted with a Hotchkis performance suspension, the Chevelle’s frame is powder-coated and the underside of the car is painted to match the top of the car. Virtually everything on the Chevelle is new, from the glass, trim, dash, gauges, and engine, plus the supportive and very comfortable Lincoln Mark VIII six-way power seats, along with the B&M ratchet shifter, cruise control, cup holders, Dakota gauges, an Ididit steering column, and Vintage Air system. For those rare occasions when additional entertainment is required, the Chevelle is equipped with a Custom Autosound USA-630 radio with a CD changer control and a USB port for .mp3 capability. Other great features include all A/C and heater hoses by Gotta Show Products, a trunk-accessible fuel sending unit, a no-leak dry-cell battery mounted in the trunk with a built-in trickle charger. An awesome restoration and build, this Pro-Touring ’70 Chevelle combines the best classic elements with today’s high-performance technologies and build quality into one great package.
