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.

By 1970, the Chevelle SS had reached its most outrageous specification, with a huge 454 cubic inch (7.5-litre) big block V8 that could be ordered with an advertised 450bhp and 500lb ft of torque.

With a 0-60mph time of a little over 5 seconds, the 1970 Chevrolet Chevrolet SS 454 was one of the fastest accelerating road cars in the world, and is hugely collectable today.
