In 1970, sheet metal revisions gave the bodies a more coke bottle styling, and interiors were also redesigned.  The 1970 Chevelle came in Sport Coupe, Sport Sedan, convertible, four-door sedan, a couple of wagons, and coupé utility (the El Camino) body styles. The base model was now simply called Chevelle in lieu of the former base 300 Deluxe, and was only available as a Sport Coupe or four-door sedan. The 300 Deluxe 2-door sedan was canceled and replaced by the base Chevelle Sport Coupe, a 2-door pillarless hardtop. The hardtop, convertible, and sedan received the upgraded sheet metal but the station wagons and El Camino retained the previous year’s sheet metal panels (which went on for the next 2 model years).   New options included power door locks and a stalk-mounted wiper control.

The SS 396 Chevelle included a 350 bhp (261 kW) Turbo-Jet 396 V8, special suspension, “power dome” hood, black-accented grille, resilient rear-bumper insert, and wide-oval tires on sport wheels. Though a 375 bhp (280 kW) cowl induction version was available, few were sold in favor of the newly introduced 454 engine during late-1969 timeframe. The LS5 454 cu in (7.4 L) V8 produced 360 bhp (268 kW) in standard form and a cowl induction version was also available. The LS6 produced a claimed 450 gross HP in solid-lifter, high-compression guise.

This is a real all #s matching born with drivetrain car that is mostly still original, 2 factory buildsheets and all original sheetmetal. Fairly rare options from factory like power windows, cowl induction, 4 speed, gauges, bucket seats etc. If u are looking for a real ss convertible with good options with #s matching and factory documents this may be your car, This car is for the unique collector that likes originality and rarity, was repainted correct color about 14 yrs ago and has since spent time in a local museum.

Trunk and all jams are still original paint , interior is all original except front seat covers, conv top is still even the original along with the dated top boot and bag.  I don’t think you will find a more solid documented original 4 speed car with these options for the money.
