Joe K’s 1970 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Joe K’s 1970 Chevelle

Joe found his 1970 Chevelle in Gig Harbor, Wa. Summer of 2020 from a friend.

He has had many hot rods throughout his life. He has worked on them to make them his own. Joe is lucky he has just recovered from cancer, and being retired he was looking for a muscle car that already complete. So he could relive the old days and drive it around and show it off at car shows.

The 1970 Chevelle SS has an M21 Muncie close-ratio 4-speed transmission and is a 396/350 hp is a rotisserie restoration with a build sheet. It’s a special thing because he had a 1972 Chevelle back in the day. He is looking forward to the Spring and Summer to head off to car shows

"You have the parts I need to finish up my trunk."
