Finished in its correct Code 75 Cranberry Red paint with the correct OEM white stripes, this 1970 Chevelle SS 396 was treated to a frame-off restoration and features a matching-numbers drivetrain. The rebuilt L34 396/350 HP V-8 has been dyno-tested at 375 HP and 475 lb-ft of torque, and it’s teamed with a M20 Muncie 4-speed transmission and Hurst floor shifter. It also has the Optional 12 bolt 3:31 positraction rear end, F41 spec perf suspension, and power front disc brakes. Inside, the Chevelle SS still features its mostly original, white, bench-seat interior, augmented with new, correct black carpeting. Contrary to popular belief, the Chevelle SS did not come standard with bucket seats, a console or auxiliary gauge clusters; all were optional equipment. The base seating was a cloth and vinyl upholstered bench seat, though all-vinyl was also available, like how this car is equipped. Other features include power steering and brakes, an AM/FM radio(non-working) and under dash gauges. It also boasts the desirable ZL2 cowl induction hood and 5-spoke SS wheels, and BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires. The 1970 Chevelle SS remains as one of the icons of the muscle car era, available in both hardtop coupe and convertible body styles on the Malibu series. Early 1970 Chevelles were available with either of two versions of the 396, with 350 and 375 HP ratings, or the larger LS5 454 CI V-8. The top-of-the-line LS6 454 came later in the year and replaced the L78 396/375 HP V-8. Interestingly, the 1970 396 engine did not actually displace 396 CI. A .030-inch overbore upped the total displacement to 402 CI. This was done to ease emission compliance for this engine, as different standards were set for engines above 400 CI. Since the 396 had such strong brand equity, the larger engine was still referred to as such. This particular Chevelle L34 SS396 still has its original build sheet, which comes with the car. This car represents a great opportunity to acquire a quality, restored example with a matching-numbers drivetrain and build sheet.
