As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. On the surface, this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 might not look like much to the untrained eye and, in fact, this one was passed over by quite a few people before it fell to those who realized it’s worth.
To someone who isn’t familiar with the value of an authentic and original car, they might look at this old piece of Americana like something that had seen better days and will probably be left to rot, however, to the right person, seeing the original parts still in tact could bring great value alongside this machine.
Just how much value would the car bring? Well, to figure that out, the machine would head off to be bid on at the Russo and Steele Auction as plenty of people on hand seemed to realize that this car was a very special treat for the right enthusiast. Sure, on the surface, it might have needed a little bit of restoration but when you really take a look at it, it seems like the bones are strong enough to begin to build off of and create a machine that is worthy of admiration. The price tag would soon follow that idea with the car would eventually show that someone definitely could appreciate the value sitting beneath the rusty coating.
If you follow long below, you’ll be able to see the Chevelle SS396 that would eventually end up bringing $30,000 at auction. You could get yourself into a new car for that price but in this auction, the person gets the opportunity to go home with the vehicle that may soon be one-of-a-kind if they play their cards right and maintain the vehicle.
It’s not very often that you get to see a machine like this in such good shape and that you can grab at price like that. It would be pretty interesting to see what a fully restored version of the same car would eventually go for if it ever hits the auction block again.
