Description

Lot #704 - On September 24th 1969 the original owner walked into Glenn Chevrolet Co in St James, MO and ordered a brand new 1970 Cranberry Red Super Sport. He specified the L78 375hp mill backed up with a 4-speed manual transmission and a 4.10 ratio axle with posi-traction. He also selected ZL2 hood Cowl Induction with black hood stripes. For fun he added an AM radio with rear speaker and electric clock. One of 2,144 1970 Chevelle L78's built briefly in the beginning of the 1970 Model year. The original order form and two Build Sheets which were found during restoration are provided as well as an unbroken chain of ownership. A fresh restoration just completed in March of 2013, the Cranberry Red paint gleams. Each component was replated in its factory correct finishes. This L78 is matching numbers right down to the original two piece front rotors and every pulley. The original spare Goodyear polyglas tire and SS wheel are still in the trunk.
