1970 Chevy Chevelle work in progress

The owner of this build decided he wanted the best of “both worlds.” The first part of the build was to the pull the numbers matching 396 motor and the 4 speed Muncie numbers matching transmission and rebuild both and place them on an engine stand. The original steering box, exhaust manifolds, carburetor and suspension were preserved. Then we selected a period correct 454 motor and rebuilt it to be 850HP + by adding the performance parts MCE specializes in. Additionally a Richmond 5 speed racing transmission and a Hotchkis TVS Performance Suspension will be mated to a Wilwood 4 wheel Disc Brake system. Other performance parts that will be added include an Aeromotive Fuel System with a Quickfuel E85 (alcohol) Carburetor, and Hooker headers mated to Magaflow Exhaust. The end result will be a Muscle Car that is both an original numbers matching vehicle and a Pro-Touring modified Rocket Ship with staggering performance!!

Finally! 1970 LS6 454 beast of a motor finally installed and running. It’s a roller with top quality parts- Titanium Rods, Pistons, Valves, and Rings with billet Howards Cam, Bill Mitchell Heads, and Quick Fuel E85. All this translates to 800HP!!
