If you could go back in time and buy a classic muscle car right off the dealer lot, which one would it be? For a lot of gearheads, a 1970 Chevelle SS with a LS6 and a 4-speed would top that list. Sure, there are still a few of those cars around but with the six figure prices they command, fully enjoying them is a risky endeavor. One of our favorite solutions to this problem is buying an authentic ’70 Chevelle SS, building a factory spec LS6, putting the two together and hitting the road. Someone out there agreed with us and built this incredible Astro Blue LS6 tribute. The restoration is first rate and the car features all the checklist items you want like big block power, a Muncie 4-speed, a killer color combination, an arrow straight body and a detailed undercarriage. With only test miles on the brand new drivetrain, this one is ready for the road. If you want the ultimate A-body for weekend driving and showing, take a closer look as this amazing Chevelle.

Walking up to this car for the first time, it’s hard not to like the PPG Astro Blue paint. With just enough crushed glass flake mixed in, the color is eye catching and shows brilliantly in direct sunlight. The modern base/clear system also provides more gloss and depth than factory paint could dream of. White stripes accent the blue paint and bring the interior color outside for a cohesive look. Under that paint is a laser straight body free of imperfections. Chances are high that the body didn’t look this good the day it rolled out of the Arlington, TX assembly plant.

Ever see a car with slick paint but no attention to detail beyond that? Well, this is definitely not one of them. Absolutely every piece of this car has either been restored or replaced with high quality pieces. At the front of the car, a show quality front bumper anchors the front end. Above it, the familiar Chevrolet crossbar grille provides space for the prominent “SS” emblem housed between four stainless bucketed T3 headlights. Further up, a correct functional cowl hood featuring “Cowl Induction” badging is held in place by two stainless hood pins. The front fenders wear matching factory style “SS 454” badges to provide would-be stoplight competitors fair warning as to what they’re up against. At the top of the car, fresh stainless trim surrounds brand new glass. Out back, another show ready bumper resides under the black SS valance.

Pull the hood pins and you’ll find a 454 cubic inch big block sitting in the center of a gleaming bay. The block is a mid-70s casting disassembled and rebuilt to 450hp LS6 specifications. It’s been painted Chevy Orange and topped with a pair of cast iron rectangle port heads that wear chrome factory style valve covers. Up top, a satin black single snorkel air cleaner cover draws air through the cowl induction hood. Beneath it, a Holley 4150 carb sits atop a 3963569 GM intake. At the front of the engine, a rebuilt alternator, power steering pump and clutch fan all look factory fresh. From the R59 battery cover to the reproduction GM hoses, no detail has been overlooked. In places where the factory would have used satin black such as the inner fender wells and radiator support, gloss black has been used giving the bay a clean slightly over-restored look that blends well with the level of detail present elsewhere on the car. The engine exhales through a set of polished headers that connect to a true dual exhaust system. The big block fires up immediately and has a healthy rumble at idle.

Underneath the Chevelle, a rebuilt Muncie M21 4-speed transmission applies power to the 12 bolt Positraction rear end packed with 3.73 gears. Factory style power steering makes turning a breeze while power brakes with disc up front and drums in the rear make sure stopping is an effortless task. The suspension has been rebuilt to F41 specifications with a stiffer spring up front and boxed lower control arms out back with the optional sway bar. All factory tags and grease pencil markings are also in place for extra show points. At the corners, Firestone Wide Oval tires wrap around Super Sport wheels for a nostalgic look. While the specs sound straight forward, the attention to detail on this undercarriage is remarkable. The stunning Astro Blue paintwork carries underneath to the floor pans. If it isn’t painted blue, it has either been polished or wears a slick coat of gloss black. This car was definitely built with an intent to show.

Open those long doors and you’ll find arguably one of the coolest Chevelle interior colors – Ivory White. The optional Strato-Buckets look great and are surprisingly firm to sit in. The backseat, door panels and headliner share the Ivory coloration. The black carpet looks new and makes the white interior just a little easier to take care of. From the command post, a three-spoke GM steering wheels offers control over the power steering system. Behind it, a clean factory dash displays a tachometer, speedometer and clock all within an easy viewing distance. The original AM radio is in place and still pulls in signal with ease. Being a big block 4-speed car, there is naturally no air conditioning so climate control is left to the stock ventilation system. Between the seats, the center console offers considerable storage space and houses the Hurst shifter that lets the Muncie know what to do. All brightwork is show worthy and free of any major imperfections.

Documentation includes an original owner’s manual as well as authentic 1970 Chevelle literature from GM that covers all the major selling points of your new Chevrolet.

It would be fair to throw the term “over-restored” at this car but certainly not in a negative way. If you’re going to spend this much time restoring a car, making it look better than the factory was capable of is completely understandable – especially when it turns out like this. If the idea of owning an impossibly clean big block 4-speed 1970 Chevelle appeals to you, don’t miss the chance to put this one in your garage. It certainly won’t stick around our showroom for long.
