Johnny J’s 1970 Chevelle SS396

Built From The Ground Up

Johnny J’s 1970 Chevelle SS396

Johnny J received this 1970 Chevelle in 2004 from his father, who has been the original owner of this Chevelle since 1971.

Johnny began a full frame off restoration of the Chevelle in 2016 in honor of his father, having finally come to completion in 2020 after a number of setbacks over the years. It has been restored to like-factory condition with only 9000 miles on both the body and the powertrain.

This 1970 Chevelle is all numbers matching with the original 396 big block and TH400 automatic.

“I remember riding in this car as a child, driving it to school as a teenager and now restored it as an adult in honor of my father.”

Johnny

He intends to keep it in the family to pass on to the next generation as an heirloom.
