Michael H’s 1970 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Michael H’s 1970 Chevelle

Michael blew the transmission in his first car, a 1999 Dodge Avenger, and needed a new car. His dad did side work for a guy with 12 Chevelles in his backyard. All projects he made a deal with my dad, and Michael was able to get a 1970 Chevelle running and driving from him.

It had a 350 in it, all in primer bench seat, column shifter, and he was in love with it. He thought it was the coolest car ever! Even though, to some, it looked like a pile of junk.

He has done a complete frame-off restoration.

It is almost complete tubular suspension QA1 coil-overs, Ford 9” built LS3 stroker with a 4L80E trans. Dakota Digital gauges, Vintage Air, shaved the drip rails and color-matched the bumpers to the body laguna blue with black stripes. He went with Kindig-it door handles, power windows, and bucket seats. He has done his best at completing a resto-mod type Chevelle.

This car has been around since 2011. When he was in high school and with him through 8 years of military service, that is still going. His dad has 3 1970 Chevelles, and when he is finished, they will take them on a power tour and watch this once-beaten car come back to life.

He has replaced almost everything but the roof on this car. Sandblasted and powder coated the frame. The only thing he wants to do is procharge the LS3 when he is done with the build.

"I love shopping with you guys you always have things in stock and never have any issues when it comes to buying things from you great customer service and awesome shipping times"
