Did this video help you?

Zemo999: Nice! I have a all original 1970 Camaro L78..only 602 of them made that year. +brettt777 Yes that is the original cam, I know the sound well, my Camaro sounds just like it, except mine just has header mufflers on it, so it's a bit louder than this one. I have a video of mine posted on here, if you care for a short ride... ;)

Plymouth roadrunner: Sweet!

brettt777: Sweet ride man. I have always been a Chevelle guy myself. I always had '68s but my next one will definitely be a '70. I gotta ask a stupid question. Yours have a very nice lumpy idle. Is that a stock cam and exhaust or is it aftermarket? I know Chevy put some pretty large cams in their big blocks back in the day...

skipdafer: dude you gotta post a video of you taking it up to like a 100 or something, i love this chevelle!!

RanarScreenPrinting: nice chevelle

Road Test TV: Thanks for looking. Original L78 car with factory 4.10 posi rear.

Road Test TV: @brettt777 I agree. Hard to beat the sound of an old school big block with a solid lifter cam banging like this one does. Good luck with the hunt for a muscle car. I hope you find exactly what you want. Road Test TV

ericou812: whats granny shifting?

SuperCansir: I love how you actually passed 60 mph. Beautiful car man.

Road Test TV: Thanks for the comment and for watching. I agree. Fathom Blue was a great Chevelle color.

shadownglass: Very nice L78 Chevelle. I was there when the L78 hit the streets. An L78 is nothing to take lightly. In the Vette, same engine is rated at 425 HP. The L78 could put a 390 HP 427 on the trailer. I bet on a good day, you could pull an LS6 through the first three gears, and might even take him through fourth. Thanks for the video, it sounds mean as h - - -!

thegrimreaper916: how much will it cost in total to get this ride to INDIA? :D

bluesharp59: Nice ! Liked !

michelle grone: FREAKIN BAD-ASS MAN LOVE IT!!!! SOUNDS SWEET AS HELL MAN!!!

Curtis Lee: omg this car is amazing! i love that vent that opens with the rev

heroineworshipper: 1:25 sounded like metal grinding

nightmoves420: @mehlville97 LOL, your a joke. Take your rice burner and move over seas and run it there. If your not going to run American you belong there.

TheMARTINFCC: it calls car , not that crapty plastic cars , freak prius

akraus5: how much does a car like this normally go for

carsbyjeff: Awesome Chevelle! Sweet Rumble, Sounds like a Rock Crusher 4 speed? M22...

TheCowGoesMoo o: Well he did hit 80 in this vid..

253JSCRILLA: Dammm .....no comment lol

peque9807: That is so bad ass! ! I like it when it revvs n the cowl Hood flaps open...how cool is that

Michael Dunn: Let me tell all you old baby boomer farts something. My Honda civic could blow the doors off this american made boat anchor. I have been feeding the mice in my motor meth. and if thats not enough I just installed a new Maxwell House double the caffein muffler. Plus i mounted an old wing off a DC-3 on the back off it. So by the time you start this chevelle ill be hitting golf balls on the moon......

Robert Ruis: It must be a real blessing to own one of the BEST muscle cars ever to be produced! Good for you man! Enjoy!

Road Test TV: @carsbyjeff Believe it or not, its an M21. But it does sound like an M22 in video. Thanks. Road Test TV

Mike Rotchburns: those are the tires screeching.........

mrceebees14: This came with an L78 and Posi rear?

Road Test TV: @Cliner98 Getting motored on by a sleeper Chevelle when your driving an 11.60 Nova, must have been a surprise. Thanks for sharing.

XboobtubeX: @mehlville97 you snot nose kids know nothing about back in the day muscle cars. Do you really believe a muffler and wing amount to anything when it comes to horsepower? If you do, then you have a lot of growing up to do.

Road Test TV: @brettt777 Thanks. It has the stock L78 solid-lifter cam with hooker headers running into 2 1/2 inch exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. Thanks for watching. Road Test TV

elkyt81: Damn right.

dacodoco: I love the sound of a 4 speed whining sounds like a super

Lee Tamayo: @brettt777 man i agree!..i had a 69 442 w-32 with a 455 in it and it had a stick...i miss that car so much i had to sell it cause i moved to an apartment and i had no where to park it..i didn't want to park it in the street so i had no choice but to sell it...the 442 i had was so damn fast and all it had was a original alluminum intake manifold a 750 carb and ported heads....shifting the gears on it was so fun...i just love hearing the sound of a bigblock going down the street shifting gears..

MinniKF: @brettt777 сколько стоит стандартный такой автомобиль без турбо?! I WANT HIM!!!

jonzdad1: Jesus, that thing is a beast.

14Dollar: Great to see an original dash. What a beautiful color for that car.

brettt777: I don't care how big of turbo or how much nitrous they put in a tuner, or how fast it goes, they could never have that big block sound and never be as cool as this. I had a friend years ago that had a '70 Olds 442 W-30 with the 455, M-22, 4.10's and red on black. It sounded and ran much like this one. Way cool. I told the wife last night that we need to have a muscle car in the family again. She agreed. I have an '06 Ram with a 5.7L Hemi. It's fun but it doesn't look and sound like this one...

leifericson923: Honestly, I'd take an old muscle car like this over a Ferrari any day.

oilcan821: of all the cars i had in the 70's, i had a '70 ss396, plain jane! idiot lights instead of rally gauges, bench seats instead of buckets, no stripes, 14" rally wheels, f41 suspension, m-21 with 3.36 12 bolt posi. (i later changed to 3.73's) it ran 13.40's at 108 mph down the 1/4 mile, and i know this is hard to believe, it would get 18 mpg cruising at a steady 55-60 mph! you could almost watch the gas gauge go down if you beat on it! one of the best bowties with a tonawenda tornado under the hood!

Road Test TV: @skipdafer Thanks. Going to take it to the track soon.

416honda: In his late 20's/early 30's, my Dad owned a 1970 L89. I saw a couple of old Polaroids - it was red with black stripes and tan interior. My Mom threatened to divorce him if he didn't get rid of it. She ended up divorcing him anyway.

Road Test TV: @Boggle122333 Thanks. Chevy got it right with the Cowl Induction hood on the Chevelle. Great to watch it open when your driving and bury the throttle. Thanks for watching.

Benguitar1991: Was that twenty to eighty in about four seconds? One day I shall have one... One day...

Any help you could offer would be great.
