It’s coming to that time of year when the weather is becoming milder and it’s now time to take off the covers off the hibernating muscle cars around the land. It’s also the time of year when people start eyeing up potential new vehicles, even if it is window shopping. In this regard, I’ve spotted one of my favorite muscle cars in the form of this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Restomod.

1970 was arguably the pinnacle of muscle car design and innovation from the classic era, with the Chevelle SS been the heavyweight of the pack. The 454 ci. V8 version was the most potent, but in this case it’s a restomod with a 585ci. V8, apparently producing 800HP on 93 pump gas.

You can pick up a 1970 Chevelle SS 454, probably none numbers matching from the mid. $50-60K mark and mostly original. But, the decision here is if you want as close to original as possible or the benefits of a restomod that has more upgraded parts. There are lots of pros and cons to both sides, but one of the main benefits to a well built restomod is all the updated parts and hopefully somebody has already done all the hard work for you.(in many cases them losing money in the process from all the expensive parts and time.)

Moving on to this version, this is a very tasty looking example of a Chevelle SS going off the images. Starting with the engine, the description says that if race fuel was used, the NOS hooked up and it was treated to a tune, then it can produce 1400 horses. Maybe, but we have to go off what it can do now, more than anything.

The description gives a good rundown of all the updates, which we have listed below, which shows there has been quite a bit of money spent on this ride.

The description also says that the cars had had a full nut and bolt restoration from the ground up, with the interior being treated to a full roll cage with Kirkey bucket seats. Most of the interior has been replaced with new parts, which includes a SS dash, steering wheel and custom gauges. With the roll cage in place, this Chevelle has been set up to be a racer, but can be easily converted to be a more regular ride.

In total, this mighty beast is probably worth the money considering all the money spent on it, but as usual will need an in person inspection to make sure everything checks out. Watch the video below, for a more close-up look at the vehicle.
