This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I have a numbers matching real SS396 Chevelle. Red exterior with black bucket seats and a floor shift for the rebuilt Turbo 400 automatic transmission. The engine has been rebuilt as well. Other options include Power Steering, Power Disc Brakes, Air Conditioning, AM-FM Stereo. The car is 98% complete and has the original exhaust system including the mufflers. All of the Cowl Induction air cleaner is intact. Every number that I have checked has matched with what came on this car originally. I also have the original owner's manual and the dealer showroom brochure. There are many new parts that come with the car. It needs paint and re-assembly. I can arrange this also. You may call me with any further questions or respond via E-mail. Pics available upon request. Floor is excellent and has NO rust. Trunk area shows NO rust. RH quarter has minimal repair at the rear. I would suspect some rust but it could be dent repair. I am asking $15000.
    Thank you,
    Bill Weaver

    Only 2 were offered in 1970. This one is the 396/350 HP. The other was of course the 396/375 HP. The numbers on the block are CTW. Bill

    Bill, I ordered the muscle cars for our dealership in 1970 and although my memory isn't what it used to be, I'm pretty certain that if you consult that vehicle's owner's manual, you'll find that there were three 396s (325/350/375) and two 454s (360/450) available for that car.

    I know where a 1970 SS454 450hp is garaged with less than 2,000 miles on it. I ordered the car and sold it to the young soldier who was about to leave for a tour in Viet Nam from which he never returned. His parents will not sell it as it is their last link to him and they tell me that their wills include instructions to call me about the car after they pass away.

    It is dark blue with white SS stripes, white vinyl bucket seat interior with console, M22 four-speed, 4.56-1 12-bolt Positraction rear and all the usual SS options - even an AM/FMst/8-track. I last visited it several years ago and except for some rotted rubber and a lot of dust, it is like new.

    Ed,
    The 325 version was dropped in 1970. It took a while to find this but even the brochure does not list it. 1969 was the last year of the 325 but we all know that this is a very forgiving number. I got this car in a package deal with a 1967 Shelby GT-500 two-owner. I am not a Chevy man but if I were this Chevelle would be my car of choice.

    I had a 71' and it was a dog compared to my 69' 396 Impala SS, which was huge car. Didn't they add all the Emission control BS in 71'?

    That is correct. The '70 model were the last of the true, unsmogged Muscle cars of the era. Did not matter which brand, they all got the smog treatment after 1970.

    The bumper is correct. The SS pad you are probably wondering about is in the trunk. It merely glued on.

    The LS-5 had 454/390 HP while the LS-6 454/450 horse had a single Holley 4 barrell and solid lifters. I worked on many of the Muscle Cars but I am a Ford man forever. Bill
