The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is a major car driven by Dominic Toretto in The Fast and the Furious and Fast & Furious.

History

The Fast and the Furious

Following his escape from Los Angeles, Dominic reaches Baja, Mexico. In Baja, Dominic drives a red Chevrolet Chevelle SS to an unknown destination.[2]

Fast & Furious

Dominic returns to Los Angeles in the red Chevelle to attend the funeral of his wife, Letty Ortiz. Later, he visits his sister, Mia Toretto, who takes him to the site where Letty had been murdered.

In preparation for the audition race set up by Arturo Braga, Dominic sands the original paint down to the bare metal and repaints it grey, and modifies the car under the hood. The car accrues minor damage during the race from Alex, who rams it with his BMW E39. The car is driven to victory by Dominic.

After completing the tunnel run with the car, knowing that he is going to be attacked and possibly killed, Dominic leaves a can of nitrous oxide slightly open, leaking gas, and also leaves his cigarette lighter turned on.

Dom has a verbal standoff with Fenix Calderon about Letty's death and used their confrontation as a way to distract Calderon. The nitrous oxide pressure within the Chevelle built to a point that it caused the lighter to fly off and spark. The car detonates, allowing Dominic to beat Fenix and escape from the ambush with only one bullet wound. The Chevelle SS is destroyed alongside Brian O'Conner's 2002 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34.

The Fate of the Furious

Some time after the events of Furious 7, Dom purchased a red and black 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454, identical to the one from the first film. After Dom goes rogue, Letty sits in the car and opens the glovebox, finding a picture of herself, Dom, Brian and Mia.

Trivia

  • After Dom repaints his Chevelle in Fast & Furious, he also changes his license plates to JSM 586; the same plate used by Sean Boswell's 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
    • The JSM 586 California plate was also used on Katherine Heigl's character's Volkswagen in the 2007 film Knocked Up; her sister Debbie's vehicle has the license plate 290 QKH, which is the license plate used on Dom's Chevelle before he repainted it.
