1970 CHEVROLET CHEVELLE CUSTOM 2 DOOR COUPE This is what happens when you blend a '70 SS 454 Chevelle with a heavy dose of NASCAR influence. When you wrap all that together, you get this outstanding big block Chevelle. Full-tube chassis with rollcage assembly in the interior, as well as bars forward and aft. The front suspension starts with tubular upper and lower control arms that tie into a Woodward manual rack & pinion steering assembly dampened through coilover shocks and springs. Monster Wilwood discs front and rear assisted by a Wilwood master cylinder and pedal assembly. The rear suspension is a compact 3-link NASCAR style design employing a slick adjustable Panhard bar accessible from inside the truck. This is a common ritual on a NASCAR Winston Cup racer, but it's rare to see this in a street car. Monster Jongbloed wheels under each corner with 17x11 fronts and 275/40ZR17 Goodyear GS-C's, while out back 17x12's support massive 315x35ZR17 GS-C's. All of this amazing chassis and suspension work is aimed at harnessing the power of a thumper 502cid Rat motor that dyno-tested at over 680hp and almost 690ft/lbs of torque. In keeping with the corner-turning theme, it has a complete dry-sump lubrication system that included placing the oil tank behind the driver seat for weight consideration. A Dart single-plan intake supports a 1,000cfm Holley topped off with a slick Carbon Fiber cold air inlet and valve covers from K&N. Completed in time for the Hot Rod Power Tour. **TITLE IN TRANSIT** http://www.barrett-jackson.com/staging/carlist/items/Fullsize/Cars/89325/89325_Front_3-4_Web.jpg
