Michael’s 1970 Chevelle SS396

Built From The Ground Up

Michael’s 1970 Chevelle SS396

Michael’s car is a Canadian documented 1970 Chevelle SS396 that came equipped with an L34 396 with 350 horsepower and a Muncie M21 four speed transmission.

While he still has the original 396 big block, Michael opted for a ZZ502 crate engine with a few upgrades.

This 35,000 mile car is completely original right down to the body panels. It never saw winter and sat in storage for many years after it was only a year old.

Michael enjoys working on it, driving it, and taking it to shows. The Chevelle has taken best of show many times.

“There’s always some way to make improvement and for me that’s a large part of why I enjoy the car hobby so much.”

– Michael

That’s what it’s all about!
