If you can afford the cost of purchasing a 1970 Chevelle SS in decent condition AND the insurance costs... Go for the '70 SS!!!
LS-6 454 Chevelle... very fast car, along with the '70-'71 Hemicuda, '68 428 Mustang, '69 440-6 bbl Road Runner, '70 Buick GS 455 Stage 1, etc.
All of these cars are quick, and so close in 1/4 mile times, that in many cases it's the better driver who wins.
Please Pleasae answer my question!
I was wondering if it is possible to put the tail lights and bumber of a 71 0r 72 chevelle onto a 1970 chevelle. I know that it takes the originality away from the car, but I am curious if it is possible...Please! somebody answer my question. firstname.lastname@example.org.
I knew a guy who had a dark green '70 SS 396 Chevelle. I must say it was a nice car, 4 speed and all that stuff. One strange thing I found was the very small gas tank,10 gallons if I remember correctly. It was fast, but I don't think he could have taken my Speed- O- Motive small block,4 speed '69 Camaro convertible. I also knew a guy who had a beautiful'70 454 SS Chevelle, black with white stripes, this one I know there was no chance of beating, too much power and too much torque. My goodness these muscle cars were so available during the mid '70s, it was nothing to see an SS Chevelle sitting on blocks in the middle of a cow pasture and rob it of what ever we needed, rear ends, radiator,4 speed, etc. Once we found a 12 bolt under a '67 SS Chevelle, we told the owner we would be back the following weekend. We didn't make it back that weekend, but did make it the next. He punished my buddy by charging him 35 dollars instead of the agreed on 25 dollars. Good luck on finding a tank of gas for that today. I must also say if I had to restore an old muscle car or just buy a new 07 Shelby Mustang. I would buy the new Shelby-the cost would be the same and the new car would be so much safer. Yes, I have been in several wrecks that were not my fault and thank God for air bags or I would not be writing this right now. Have a good night!
