Cons

nothing.

The Raffle — pure american muscle, with a 396 ci engine and muncie 4 speed. a real head turner. you don't drive this car for the gas mileage, you drive it fun. it's a pavment pounding beast, that burns rubber in all 4 gears. FYI i won this car in the cruisin the coast, make a wish raffle.

Chevelle 454 — the 1970 chevelle ss was one of the top ten fastest muslecars stock it ran 13 seconds in the quarter mile. it came with a 454 450 hp engine(you could also get other engines but it was the most powerfull) Mine hasa zz454 crate engine from gm the engine was built as a circle track race engine because it has 500hp and 540lb ft of tourque and is very light weight. it is also backed by tci streetfighter transmission turbo 400. dual 3inch mandrel bend exhaust. and it performs very well. the acceleration and top speed are great but at almost 18 feet long it handles like a boat

1970 Chevelle 454 Ls6 — This was a car I rebuilt myself. This car is true to the "take no prisoners" 454, with an 800-cfm Holley four barrel on an aluminum manifold, 11.25:1 compression, solid lifters, four-bolt mains, forged steel crank and connecting rods, forged aluminum pistons, and deep-groove accessory pullies. It has a Turbo 400 automatic and has Positraction which was an option back in 1970. She has matching numbers. She has been restored to near mint condition. Exterior is silver with black racing stripes down the hood and trunk. Interior is black. This beauty is obviously not my daily driver, but I do take her out of the garage on weekends. She's been the best car I've owned thus far. Find her stats below: Engine: V-8 Horsepower 450 @ 5600 Torgue 500@ 3600 Performance: 0-60 in 6.1 seconds 1/4 mile 13.7 @ 103mph I would recommend the 1970 LS6 to anyone interested in a beefy, yet sultry muscle car.

70 Chevelle — I love it..this one i have has a PAR 565 cubic inch big block that has ran 9.67 at 134mph ..peddling it 3 times in the quarter...if i can get the correct set up it should go low 9,s and high 8,s on the bottle with any luck..the only thing i dis liked originally was how heavy it was..i cured that bye going all fiberglass except the roof now it weighs 2450lbs with me in it.

Fun, Fast Car. — I have had the car for 11 years. That has to say something about the car--I don't keep anything longer than about 8 months, usually.

Incredible power.

It slides everywhere.

My Dad Owned It...and I Drove It...it Is A Great Classic — The car combines the excellent balance of speed and class. It all starts at a red light. You slam the gas and the tires skid on the white paint. It roars at 5000 rpm from first to second gear and everything becomes a distant blur. Your adrenaline just doesn't stop from the moment you turn the car on.

Ss 396 — This is all steel,back when cars were made of pure steel.Like they said,there is no substute for cubic inches.No ECM no computer brain,if you got fuel and spark it will start and run all day long.You will have to put fuel in this bad boy,back then who cared about fuel economy!

Fuel Mileage ..... Gas was .49 per gallon

1970 Chevelle — Was an awesome car. Not really the best car for a 16 year old driver, but it was the 70's. Would leave rubber all the way through 1st and half of 2nd gear. First ticket was received the night I picked it up. Exhibition of Speed ... 30 day automatic suspension in Riverside County. At least I got to drive it until I went to court.

1970 Chevelle Owner Comments — Whats not to like? Great performance,full frame suspension, styling sedate but very well done,4 speed,air conditioning I also own a Corvette C5 Vert and its every bit as fun to drive and own. I have kids and have a great musclecar with a rear seat for cruises,shows etc. Head turner absolutely everywhere. The 70 has it all. I also had a 69 SS Camaro 4 speed and the Chevelle is far superior. On a long trip the ride quality is fantastic. A garage is a must and the more you drive it the better it is! What is interesting is the ones that have 2 or 3 musclecars and keep their Chevelles the longest.
