1970 Chevelle SS 454

Recommended Posts

This is a ProShop pre-painted kit with mixing and matching of parts from my other Chevelles. Overall it turned out pretty well. I picked the Cragar S/S wheels because they look good on Chevys. I went with a red interior just to spice it up. The engine is a 454 Big Block with ignition wires added. Except for the side marker lights, no BMF was used. Just a touch of Molotow chrome here and there.

Looks very good! Those pre-painted stripes look much better than any '70 Chevelle decals I've ever seen, including the set I spent most of a day carefully modifying and applying. Well done and model on!ย B)

They are nice. The original plan was to have custom RED SS stripes laid over them. I got them from Keith Marks but the ends were different and I didn't want to repaint the body so I am saving them for a future project.

Thank you all on the compliments. It seems a red interior was a good choice (I thought black would be too boring)

Nice work detailing the instrument panel.

I'm thinkin' both the valve covers might be 180ยฐ off but other than that, it looks real nice!

You could very well be right. I didn't pay that close of attention.

It's easy to remember for future reference that: oil fill caps and PCV holes, etc are always located on the high side of valve covers to minimize oil leakage.
