Steve B’s 1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS5

Built From The Ground Up

Steve B’s 1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS5

Steve was on the hunt for a 1970 Chevelle SS 454 in 2020 to compliment the other two Chevelles he owns. This example was found listed online in New York.

This Chevelle has had a frame off restoration in 2020, which is a nice refresh to the restoration that was performed approximately 9 years prior. The previous owner had used many parts sourced from Ground Up SS396.com.

“Wanted to show how the quality parts you sell stand up. Vehicle was seldom driven and now I have it and only order parts from Ground Up.”

Steve B

The LS5 454 big block is original to this 1970 Chevelle, as is the TH400 transmission and differential. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that the original 8-track radio still works.

“I will keep the vehicle all original, even the Firestone Wide Oval tires, and enjoy it with my family.”

Steve B

"Favorite part is the original parts and the quality of the parts."

-Steve B
