1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Ss on 2040-cars
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States
1970 Chevrolet Chevelle coupe, one of the most desired muscle cars today. This car has about
2700 miles since the restoration (original mileage unknown) with Super Sport trim, upgraded overdrive transmission,
A/C interior and big block power.
The car was professionally resprayed the 1970-correct Cranberry Red with the black SS stripe package and a black
vinyl roof. The power bulge hood is a must-have on a Chevelle with the correct working cowl induction flap. It has
very nice chrome bumpers, blacked-out grille, hood pins and blacked-out rear panel.
The car is equipped with a big block 396 cubic-inch V8 painted Chevrolet orange with chrome valve covers and the
cowl induction air cleaner with the correct seal to the hood. The big block has a Holley four-barrel carburetor and
Edelbrock Performer intake with an HEI distributor . Exhaust is handled through long-tube headers to the stainless
dual exhaust. The transmission was upgraded to a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission that includes overdrive
and a Bowler adjustable lockup controller that is located under the dash. It has a 12 bolt rear with I believe 331
gears. It has power steering, power brakes w/discs up front and 17 American racing mags with new tires, 245/45R17
in front and 255/45R17 in the rear. Equipped with LED taillights for great visibility. The car sounds great and
it handles very well.
Black vinyl seats, carpets, dash, gauges, console, and headliner are all freshly done as part of this recently
restored package. It has the Chevy three-spoke sports steering wheel on a tilt column, horseshoe shifter with the
correct shift plate for the overdrive trans and a full round gauge package with large speed and tach gauges.
Everything works even the clock! The stereo is a retro-style unit with AM/FM stereo with a USB port. The air
conditioning is blowing nice and cold with a new compressor recently installed.

Chevy's goal at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week seems to be to show as much of its Performance and Accessories catalog as possible. That's why it brought three different Camaros - two with V8s and one powered by a V6 - with all of the best goodies from the catalog already fitted.
We gave a more in-depth recap of the Performance Camaro V8 Concept, the Performance Camaro V6 Concept and the Performance Garage Concept already, but we figured you'd like a short recap for each. It should be noted, though, that you can order all of the items you see here for your own Camaro, so be sure to take a long, hard look at our live galleries, just in case you're in the market for some mods.
Essentially, the Performance Garage Concept and the Performance V8 Concept are the same car - the only difference is that the later features a whole host of aesthetic tweaks in addition to its aftermarket, shorty exhaust headers and 2.75-inch exhaust. (The Performance Garage Concept has been usefully placed on its side; the better to see the new parts added to the vehicle.) The Performance V6 Concept is notable because, despite being a V6, there's no shortage of performance goodies fitted. All three of the Performance Camaros benefit from items from the Camaro ZL1, which can also be ordered through the catalog.
Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.
