1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 - best muscle cars

The Chevelle Super Sport was Chevrolet's 60s muscle car monster

Chevrolet’s first foray into the Muscle Car world was with the Chevelle Super Sport (or SS) introduced in 1964. Early in its life it was significantly out-gunned by the Pontiac GTO, but it wasn’t long before Chevy started turning up the wick.
