Here are some things you need to know about this 1970 Chevelle: One owner. 28,777 original miles. One repaint. And the original, numbers-matching block has been removed and preserved so you can take it out and have a blast without hurting value. Cool? Absolutely. The car was repainted in 2003, but only because the original Fathom Blue finish was getting a little tired. Obviously, this car was never used as a daily driver, but time has a way of dulling paint and you can''t argue with a guy who wants a car this nice to be as sharp as possible. This is a rare non-SS Malibu that has remained as-built and not transformed into a fake SS, and you have to appreciate the honesty of the presentation. No racing stripes, no big SS badges serving as beacons for every kid in a hopped-up Honda, just ultra-sanitary 2-stage urethane, a cool egg crate grille, and a subtle white pinstripe along the fender line. Proper ''350'' badges were reinstalled, along with the ''MALIBU'' block letters on the fender, which further drives home the point that this isn''t your average A-body. In addition, the interior is almost 100% original, with only the headliner being replaced, likely for the same reasons the paint was re-done-age''ll do that to you. But things like the seats and door panels are shockingly good, and the fabric inserts are virtually untouched more than 40 years after being installed. The original carpets are beautifully preserved thanks to careful use and a set of rubber floor mats since new. And while the original instruments are all completely functional, upgrades include a tachometer flanked by two auxiliary gauges on the steering column, an elegant solution for the guy who doesn''t want to modify his original dash. The trunk is extremely clean, and actually houses the original spare tire which looks like it''s never been used! The current engine is a built 355 cubic inch small block that was built to win. With 10.25:1 compression, 2.02-inch intake valves, and a giant Crane solid-lifter cam, this one cackles and snarls at idle like a caged animal. A big Holley feeds the fuel through an Edelbrock intake, while a set of long-tube headers handle the exhaust. This is an original 4-speed car, and the Muncie feeds a rebuilt 12-bolt full of 4.10 gears on a Posi so you don''t have to be afraid of breaking it. Detailing is show-quality, with bright chrome and vivid Chevy Orange paint against a satin black background that is as clean as it was the day it left the factory. And don''t worry, purists, the original, matching-numbers block is available, just in case. It has also been fitted with Watson wheels and fat Mickey Thompson rubber. This is one of those rare finds that simply can''t be duplicated. Built for action, but beautifully preserved, it is the ideal cruiser that will always have an interesting story to tell. Call today!
