1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454
My previous Chevelle was flawed. Flawed with inaccurate details such as the front, the back, the engine, the chassis, the interior.... The list goes on and on! But one thing that it wasn't was a failure. Hey, it's currently my most popular MOC! The design, however, was in desperate need of some improvements. Unfortunately, I took the yellow Chevelle apart several months ago, so I had to start all over again. And this is what I came up with.
About this creation
1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454

Top speed: 125 mph (200 km/h)

0-60 mph: 6.1 seconds

Engine type: V8 (LS-6)

Displacement: 454 ci (7,439 cc)

Transmission: 4-speed manual

Max power: 450 bhp (336 kW) @ 5,600 rpm

Max torque: 500 lb ft (678 Nm) @ 3,600 rpm

Weight: 4,000 lb (1,818 kg)

Economy: 12.5 mpg (4.43 km/l)

The first thing you probably noticed is the restyled front end. The pointy grille on the first version made several people think it looked like a Torino. My mistake! The grille on the real Chevelle is actually much flatter, so that was one of the first things I redesigned.























The bottom edge of the rear bumper is a little fat, but I'm not too worried about that right now.



























Behold, the most realistic chassis I've ever designed! [dramatic music]



Are you droolin' yet?



Time for some interior shots!



I even managed to include that insanely small bench seat in the back. Why do so many manufacturers cram such tiny little seats back there where nobody can fit?







And finally, let's get under the hood.



Probably my most realistic engine so far. Seriously! One word: Google.



Ah, the power of the American big-block. In this case, it's the Chevrolet 454. The Chevelle SS454 was powered by the LS-6 V8, and was the most powerful Chevelle ever built.



The real Chevelle. *drool, drool, drool*



The 1971 Chevelle, which I unfortunately had mixed up with the '70 Chevelle while making the first model. But it's still a nice car!



"Lord Vader, your car is ready."



Go ahead, hop in... If you dare!


Please remember, I've worked long and hard to make sure this model actually looks like a Chevelle. So, if you have the nerve... THE NERVE to say it still looks like a Torino, I will personally come to your house and kick your butt.


Just kidding! But I really hope you think it looks like a Chevelle.

Quoting Dalton Brooks could you make instructions plz its awesome
As I've said before, I'm just not sure about instructions for an entire car. Believe me, I'd like to, but it's far more complicated than a gun or an engine. Perhaps I could post some more pointers in my building tips folder...

Very nice! It's very hard to make a nice model off a real car in this scale! I think you hit the nail right on its head, good job!

The front looks like torino, the roof looks like old impala, but the rear and the sides looks like chevelle. 26% like torino, 16% like old impala, 60% looks like chevelle. so it's Chevelle!

Quoting Tterbo Magnesium This is excellent!!! Only one criticism: the pictures are kinda dark. But what I could see from the silhouette was perfect:)
Yeah, I've made some changes to my photobooth, and they're not working out very well. I might end up taking some new photos. I'm glad you like the car, though. Thanks, everyone!

This is excellent!!! Only one criticism: the pictures are kinda dark. But what I could see from the silhouette was perfect:) I just love those old American engines, a fella that goes to our church has a 57 Chevy Bellair and he showed us the engine, it looks like this: engine, hose. That IT. Well anyhow, supreme job!

Great model. I'm no American car buff so I can't say how accurate or not it is to the real car, but the detail is excellent. I wish I could make chassis features like you can!! I love your old-school stud-y technique using proper bricks too. 5/5

Finally the comment command icon is back. Nice Chevelle Nate. I like the shape of this one way better. Very nice overall shape. I love the detailed chassis. I'm guessing you kept the engine the same. I should try and make a Chevelle out of real bricks sometime again. Great car! Keep building! -Tony
