Raymond L’s 1970 Chevelle SS

Built From The Ground Up

Raymond L’s 1970 Chevelle SS

What would become Raymond’s 1970 Chevelle SS had been stored away underneath a barn with an army tarp covering it for years.

At the time Raymond would pass by and had noticed it must be either a ’69 or ’70 Chevelle because he could see the Super Sport wheels poking out from underneath the tarp.

Unfortunately for this tucked away Chevelle, a hurricane hit his area and caused a flooding disaster. During the clean up aftermath of the hurricane, Raymond had once again passed by the barn on his way to see his in-laws. To his luck, the army tarp had flown off with the storm and the car was finally revealed!  Raymond says his first reaction was:

 “boy, oh boy was it a beauty of a 1970 Chevelle Super Sport!”

– Raymond

At this point Raymond began to communicate with the owner in an attempt to purchase this classic, but the owner of the 1970 Chevelle would not let it go. Time passed, but the damage from the hurricane lingered.

As the owner needed funds to repair his home, Raymond finally had been given the chance to take it off of his hands. Since then Raymond has brought the car from what it was to what you see now.

Not often can we be thankful of a hurricane, but if it wasn’t for that natural disaster this classic may have never seen the light of day again!
