Muscle Car Book: Chevelle SS Restoration Guide

We recently purchased a 1970 Chevelle SS project car. The first thing I did was go to my library and pull out my Chevelle SS Restoration Guide by Paul A. Herd and published by Motorbooks. Muscle cars are a hot topic and the Chevelle SS is one of the most popular. The 1970 model is arguably the most desirable.


Chevelles are very popular and available. Owners of all years of Chevelles will find useful information and images in this resource book. One cautionary note here is that this book was first published over 30 years ago and a lot has changed in the hobby since 1992 and new, additional information has likely been obtained. However, the facts from that time period in the book should still be good.

If you are restoring a Chevelle SS, you will probably find the book useful. It is crammed full of part numbers and some history and descriptions.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
