Much like other fans of classic Chevy muscle cars, the 1970 Chevelle SS had been J.J. C’s dream car for as long as he could remember. A few years ago, he was tipped off that someone local to him was looking to sell a 1970 Chevelle SS. When he arrived to look at the car, what he saw was a Chevelle SS 454 that sat untouched for over a decade, an inch of dust on the exterior and full of mold on the interior.
Undeterred by the way the car currently looked, he knew this Chevelle would be suitable for his ownership. Apparently, it had undergone a full frame-off restoration in 1999 and was then driven for a total of two years before being retired into the garage he was now standing in.
Not only would J.J. finally obtain his dream car that week, but his daughter was born just a few days prior to the purchase of the Chevelle.
I couldn’t believe I actually now owned my dream car. Between having a newborn and working 50 plus hours a week I’ve slowly been working on it and adding personal touches.J.J.
Future plans include switching to an electric fan setup as well as the addition of rear shoulder harness belts.
