Ford guy with a Chevy

Hello everyone!! My name is Adam. Yal are gonna hate me for this, but I have always been a Ford guy and love Mustangs, but always wanted a Chevelle. After having several vintage Mustangs, I decided to start the hunt for a 70 Chevelle. I found one hiding up in Charlotte for around the price I was looking for. I wanted something that looks good, sounds good, drives good, and generally looks the part. I didn't want a beater that required years of work, nor did I want a pristine showcar. I wanted something that I could drive to work, around town, the occasionally cruise-in, and just flat out enjoy! I found that!


1970 Chevelle SS (no build sheet however)
454 (rebuilt)
M21 (rebuilt)
12 bolt
3.31
AC/PS/PB
Black/black




I'm not an expert on Chevelle stuff specifically, and I hope to gain knowledge on this forum through you guys. I know my way around a Mustang, and vintage cars in general, but want to learn Chevelle speak. I'll get some pics this week and throw them up here.


Thanks again fellas, and look forward to the learning!

Re: Ford guy with a Chevy

Welcome! And no hate here - I've got a house full of Fords (including my wife's 1965 Mustang.) The only GM products here now are my Chevelle and Camaro.

I love 'em all (yes, Mopars too! )

My first car was a 4 Dr.- 55 Customline with 292. It was a new police car that the township ordered and could not pay for. My Mom and Dad traded her 48 Pontiac for the new 4 Dr. Thunderchicken!

Re: Ford guy with a Chevy

Hell, I'm a Toyota guy with a Chevy problem. No problems here.

I'd absolutely love to find a good condition notch-back Mustang. And a '68 Roadrunner. Early Celica. Mitsubishi Starion. 240 Z. I can think of a car from most automakers that I'd like to have if funds and space were unlimited.

Welcome.

I get employee pricing on almost all of the major manufacturers through my work and I've only ever used it on a Subaru for the wife in 2013. She bought an Acura in 2017 and we got better than employee pricing at the dealership....

Welcome Adam!

Tell us about your car.

See if the engine block pad has numbers stamped on it. If yes, post there here, a pic if you can.

Welcome.
