Rick O’s 1970 Chevelle SS396

Built From The Ground Up

Rick O’s 1970 Chevelle SS396

Rick O. purchased this Shadow Gray 1970 Chevelle SS396 back in 2018, fresh off the recently completed restoration from 2016.

It has been a dream of Ricks to own another Chevelle, as he had owned a 1966 model in the late ‘60s before enlisting in the Marines. This 1970 Chevelle gave him that chance.

It retains much of its originality with 48,486 miles on the odometer, save for a few performance upgrades thrown in for good measure. Rick added a 650 CFM Holley carburetor, an Edelbrock intake manifold, and a Vintage Air AC system, along with Cragar Vintage wheels and Flowmaster exhaust. He intends to simply drive and enjoy his Chevelle.
