Trans Am Worldwide To Introduce Modern-Day Chevelle Called The 70/SS




Trans-Am Worldwide, the Florida-based manufacturer behind the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro-based Pontiac Trans-Am recreation, will debut its modern-day take on the iconic 1970 Chevelle SS this month.

Dubbed the 70/SS, this new model from Trans-Am Worldwide will be styled to look like the ’70 Chevelle SS, but will feature modern-day tech and creature comforts. Like the company’s modern Pontiac Trans-Am, the 70/SS will likely be based on the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro.

Trans-Am Worldwide says it will offer three trim levels from launch, along with four different performance packages. The entry-level powertrain setup is a naturally aspirated 6.2L LT1 V8 rated at 450 horsepower, which is the stock engine offered in the Camaro, while the range-topper will be a forced induction LSX 454 good for up to 1,500 horsepower. Both manual and automatic transmissions will be offered.

Every 70/SS produced will be a convertible with an optional removable hardtop. The company says it will offer a variety of heritage colors inspired by real 1970 model year Chevelle colors, along with various modern day gloss and metallic options.



Trans-Am Worldwide founder Tod Warmack said the company will soon start work on a complete redesign of their existing Pontiac models and has now turned their attention to the 70/SS.

“We’ve been building the modern-day Trans Am for 12 years—several hundred on two different platforms,” he said. “It’s time for a complete redesign, so the Trans Am is on leave until we reintroduce the new design. We’re now focusing all of our efforts and resources on the 70/SS. The timing of this release could not have been better.”

Pricing for this new Chevy-inspired model will start at $150,000 and go up from there. The order books will open immediately after the vehicle’s debut on Saturday, May 14th at 4:00 pm EST. The unveiling will be live-streamed on Trans Am Worldwide’s YouTube channel.

These all look like plastic model car kits we build on a rainy day only larger. I don't know...No chrome no styling past the optional GTO front end, Trans Am front end...Volkswagen Van front end?
