1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 - Muscle Car For Sale


This 1970 Chevelle SS396 is a VERY big deal. 22000 original miles matching numbers throughout original 4-speed original interior and fully documented. Best of all it is a true two-owner car with the original title. Do I have your attention? Good. Now read all this carefully because this car is not going to be here long I can guarantee that so you''ll have to move fast. Have you seen how quickly some of our other Chevelles have sold and they weren''t even in the same league as this car! This car was built in Canada for sale in the US and was original sold through Bookwater Motor Sales in Stanton Michigan. According to the documentation provided by GM of Canada this car is one of only 1750 Canadian-built cars with the ZL2 option. In addition to the ZL2 it was equipped with the following: 771 Saddle interior19Black paintA51Front bucket seatsB22Door trim pad emblemB96Wheel opening moldingD88White body stripingF41Firm ride suspensionG943.31 rear axle ratioJL2Front disc brakesJ50Power brakesL34396 cubic inch V8 350 horsepowerM204-speed manual transmissionPL4F70-14 white letter tiresU63Pushbutton AM radioU76Windshield antennaZL2Special ducted hood-air induction systemZ25Super Sport 396 package The car was repainted three years ago in the original black and looks spectacular. Beautifully rubbed and buffed to a mirror-like shine this car is much much nicer than it was originally and there''s every indication that this was a high-quality job. None of the original body panels were removed and alignment is factory accurate throughout. I know this car was immaculately maintained because there is one edge on the hood where a little too much polishing and rubbing has created a thin spot but you can''t blame a guy who loves his car too much. The white stripes were not reinstalled for a sinister brutal look that I find incredibly appealing-a car like this doesn''t need dressing up with flashy stripes. However if you want the white stripes added to the car our award winning restoration shop can do the job quickly. Look again at the photos and check the reflections in the paint for yourself; this is one straight clean car. The floors are 100% original and unblemished the quarters have never seen rust and the cowl induction system is intact and functional. The front and rear bumpers are extremely nice-I don''t know if they''re original or rechromed but there are no dimples or parking lot dings and they shine like new. The badges used throughout the car are most certainly original pieces and look like they just popped out of the factory molds. The stainless is 100% original and untarnished with just the slightest traces of patina. All the glass is original stuff with proper date codes and markings while the lenses and other plastic bits and pieces are as new. Powering this black Chevelle is the original matching-numbers 396 cubic inch L34 396. Making 350 horsepower and topped by the original 4-barrel carburetor it has recently been detailed to a very high level and is ready to show or drive. The recent work includes a rebuilt master cylinder new Delco Remy power brake booster new plugs and plug wires (correct 3Q69 date code) new hoses with appropriate tower clamps a new coil and distributor cap and finally a beautiful set of GM exhaust manifolds. That''s the original cowl induction system on there original radiator original overflow bottle original alternator and just to make it complete a fresh Delco tar top battery to light the fires. The Chevy Orange paint on the block was touched up and the original chrome valve covers were polished and reinstalled. But you can rest assured that the engine has never been opened and that those are all factory gaskets holding it together. Underneath is just as nice. As I mentioned those are 100% original sheet metal floors. Like the engine the chassis features a bunch of new pieces including new spiral shocks in back new GM leaf springs new lower control arm bushings new inner and outer tie rods and new A-arm bushings for a like-new ride. The fuel tank was removed flushed and cleaned then reinstalled with a new sending unit and hoses and all the fluids are fresh. There''s a fresh alignment up front and new brake shoes out back installed by Best of Show Automotive just a few days ago. There are five new Firestone Wide Oval tires mounted on original Super Sport rims for a completely authentic look. We also have a correct exhaust system on order that will be installed in place of the current glasspacks to finish out this spectacularly original piece. Inside is a gorgeous all-original saddle interior and I like it much much better than the more familiar white vinyl that you so often see in Chevelles. Starting at the bottom the original carpets are outstanding protected for years under carpeted floor mats. There''s no console and there''s a Hurst shifter poking out of the floor in the original location. The original bucket seats are in outstanding condition with only a bit of stretching visible on the driver''s seat but no splits or tears in the materials. The original dash shows no signs of UV damage or cracking and the radio is 100% functional. Overhead there are seat belts tucked into their clips with a tight-fitting headliner in matching saddle tan. The gauges are crystal clear with the odometer showing 22178 original miles and the steering wheel is just like it was the first time the lucky original owner grasped it before lighting up the tires on his way home. In the trunk you''ll find a newer mat and spare tire cover along with the original jack and lug wrench. Documentation includes a significant pile of information from GM of Canada regarding this car including a build sheet breakdown and a 1970 Chevelle general information booklet. We also have the original order form showing a sticker price of $3525.00 and a down payment of $1225.00 leaving the balance to be financed over 35 months at $75.00/month. Don''t you just wish you could go back in time and pick up a gorgeous 1970 Chevelle SS396 for $75/month? We also have original keys owner''s manual pre-delivery service and adjustment check sheet title and warranty information with the original Protect-O-Plate in place. Compared to all the kit Chevelles out there this one stands alone. Someone kept it preserved and protected for 40 years and drove it less than 550 miles a year-now THAT''s restraint! Today it is one of the finest Chevelle SS396 coupes we''ve ever presented highly original and authentic in many ways and a thrill to drive and show. All it is looking for today is another enthusiastic owner who will keep it safe for another 40 years exercising it appropriately of course. If you''re one of the growing number of hobbyists who cherish originality and authenticity above restored flash this is your car. Come and get it because at this price I guarantee a 4-speed black over saddle SS396 won''t be here for long.
