Feature Friday: The 11 Best Movie Muscle Cars, Part Nine

Posted by Jess Stoeckeler on

Fast and Furious (2009) — 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS 454

‘This red 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS 454 is actually first seen in last few frames of the The Fast and the Furious, the first installment of the franchise. It returns with Vin Diesel in the fourth film, first appearing factory stock with black SS stripes and a cowl induction hood with hood pins. The only visible mods are its 17-inch Torque-Thrust style wheels. Then Diesel’s character rebuilds the muscle car into a stealthy grey primer street machine. Six primered cars were built for the movie, including one without an engine for filming Diesel in the interior. For the wheelie scene the car was equipped with a 502 big-block, 4.88 gears and a tray behind the rear bumper holding 700 pounds of lead.’
