1970 Chevrolet Chevelle

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle

For 1970 the Chevelle received some more body restyling and the introduction of the monster big block 454cid. The body incorporated a more sculpted and rounded appearance. Dual head lights complimented a pronounced larger rectangular grill. Also, the cars had dual round tail lights and optional cowl induction.

This production year is arguably the most recognized and loved Chevelle.
