Happy Monday, folks. To kick off the work week, we’re gonna pump a little adrenaline in you with this ultra-modern and super-powerful 1970 Chevelle. Sure, it’s not a Lamborghini, Maserati or Bugatti, but it sure impressed the hell out of the Big Muscle cast.
Mike Musto’s Big Muscle show features a pretty amazing muscle car, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle. This particular model is owned by Mark Bachman and is powered by a LS2 V-8 engine that delivers a total of 580 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque. Along with the new engine, this special Chevelle received a Global West suspension, a new set of billet wheels and a set of grip-heavy Wilwood brakes.
The body is draped in a rusty orange tone that looks a little shocking at first, but it definitely grows on you. Around the body, Bachman added small accents of chrome to the wheel-arch trim, front and rear bumpers, and grille. The balance of chrome is absolutely perfect when combined with the rusty-orange exterior.
Mark Bachman also installed a stunning interior with lots of leather, loads of grunt and just about every modern convenience you could ask for – navigation, A/C, rain-sensing wipers, etc. With all of these updates, the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle has managed to blur the lines between old and new.
Watch the above video and you will learn a little more about what an amazing car the 1970 Chevelle is. Enjoy!
