I removed the "CHEVELLE" from the grill 10yrs ago when I got the car. Today I finally removed the Bowtie. I haven't been able to find a decent replacement Bowtie and repos are just more expensive than what it is worth to me ($65-70), so I removed it. I like it better without the Bowtie.

Which way looks better (for a non-SS car)?






And here is a friend's 70 SS.

I agree, bowtie AND "Chevelle" emblem in place.

I like it either way, but no bowtie looks better than a bowtie that's in rough condition... I think I'd replace the bowtie with a new one since your car looks so "stock".

My favorite look for a '70 is a blacked out grille (like SS's) but with no emblem, but that really only works on a more "custom" looking car.

I've been running mine without a bowtie or "chevelle" and I like it better that way.

The Chevelle has spent 20 years with a plain Malibu grill (Not blacked out) and just the Chevelle emblem. A few weeks ago I put a blacked out grill in it. Looks much better now.

Oh and put both emblems on it. If not for me, do it for your country. :D

Why not pull the inner plastic from the bowtie and paint it to match the body color. Then just polish up the bezel and put it back on. On the non-blacked out grille,I like the emblem removed.
