About “70454SS”

This is my 1970 Chevelle SS. It only has 60,000 original miles.

This is a true SS Chevelle LS5 454 with a M22 Rock Crusher 4-speed. It is an original Cranberry Red car with Black stripes. Unfortunately the original motor blew up in 1971 and the block was no where to be found when the car was resurrected after sitting for 17 years. It is still a 454 but with a late model block, otherwise it is all period correct. This Chevelle had a complete frame-off restoration in 2005 and looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor in 1970.

About “SS 396”

I bought this car in August of 1980 and drove it daily to high school and college. Then in 1986, it was treated to a frame-on restoration. Over the years I have maintained and updated the restoration and it still wins awards at car shows.

Except a couple of minor things, this Chevelle is all stock! Even has a Muncie Shifter!

I drive it to all shows and cruises. The longest distance driven was to Super Chevy Sunday in Indianapolis.

Oh yeah, and this is my first car! After all these years I have no plans to sell it.
