Jeff M’s Number Matching 1970 Chevelle SS396

Built From The Ground Up

Jeff M’s Number Matching 1970 Chevelle SS396

Jeff had dreamed about owning a 1970 Chevelle since before he could even drive. Ever since he first laid eyes on one, he knew that one day he needed one.

That day came in 2004 when he stumbled upon a matching numbers 1970 Chevelle Super Sport which had been garaged since 1976. The original owner had passed away and this Chevelle as well as two Super Bees went up for sale. Not many people in town even knew about the car, and with only 38,000 miles on the odometer, it’s no surprise. It spent most of its life in the garage.

Other than the fresh paint, this Chevelle SS is completely original! The car came loaded with factory options such as A/C, power windows, rear defrost, fiber optic window washers and fiber optic ash tray lamp, and fiber optic fender signals. Performance options include a 396/350 horsepower motor, TH400, and cowl induction hood. Jeff says

“The cars 1970 sheet metal still has never touched. Under the car and inside the door jambs are full of Ziebart anti-rust coating to keep them alive. At the end of the day she’s a blast to drive!”

This Chevelle truly is a dream car and the way in which Jeff found this 1970 Chevelle is almost a dream itself!
