If you recall back to July of 2018, we showed you how you could be the proud owner of a fully restored, L78-powered ’70 Chevelle. The factory hot-rod is being made available through a sweepstakes by the Dream Giveaway group. You can read all about the car and our driving experience right here.
With the help of National Parts Depot, the sweepstakes, sponsored by New Beginning Children’s Homes-a charitable organization, is coming to an end on February 26, 2019. Included in this powered-packed prize package is the SS396 Chevelle, plus $10,000 to toward the prize taxes.
This fully restored Chevelle features what are some of the most-correct restoration components available in the world today. Only 2,144 of Chevy’s brutal L78 big-block engines were installed in Chevelles in 1970, and this is one of them. That makes this grand-prize SS396 Chevelle one of the rarest muscle cars on earth.
The big-block features 11.0:1 compression, a solid-lifter cam, aluminum low-rise intake, Holley 780-cfm carburetor, and high-flowing heads. It is backed by a Muncie four-speed manual transmission. Finally, the 12-bolt plants the tires.
Finished in Cranberry Red with black hood and decklid stripes, this Chevelle SS396 features a black bucket-seat interior. This factory hot rod is also the proud recipient of the coveted Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Grand National Champion Award. That is a testament to its top-notch restoration.
Also included are the original retail order form and two original factory broadcast sheets, verifying its authenticity. Other features include a cowl-induction hood, 3.55-ratio axle with Positraction, power steering, power-assisted brakes, 6,500-rpm redline tachometer, special performance suspension, rally gauges, and floor console.
