1 of roughly 70 Chevelle SS454 convertibles produced for the 1972 model year, and the only 1972 Chevelle SS454 convertible painted GM code 57 Golden Brown Metallic, this super cool cruiser wears its striking coat of correct two-stage exceptionally well. Under that high quality paint, an incredibly straight fuselage hangs solid panels that, barring their thorough massage during a body-off restoration, appear to have lead a quiet, drama-free existence. Those massaged panels feature-better-than factory alignment and, when opened and closed, sound solid and function well. That functional bodys combination of excellent reflections and Kansas-flat surfaces suggests many labor-intensive hours were spent blanketing every inch of its metal with top-notch finish work. And one close look at our high resolution photos reveals a striped and polished Chevy thats ready to run the street and rule the show!

By the early 70s, the Chevelle had become one of Americas best-selling cars. And Chevrolet continued to introduce subtle refinements that met increasingly strict crash standards while maintaining the models handsome and distinct profile. At the front of this sublime drop-top, a monochromatic, CHEVELLE branded grille centers a prominent SS emblem between two AACA plaques, two Power Beam headlights and a fresh chrome bumper. Above that grille, a functional cowl induction hood anchors rebuilt hide-a-way wipers between new pins, pristine stainless trim and like-new glass thats capped by a fresh black top. At the sides of that hood, bright badging and single-unit marker lamps perfectly complement straight wheel frames, traditional door handles and a subtle sport mirror. And at the back of the car, a second chrome bumper centers a second SS emblem between classy tail lights, a pristine Chevelle by Chevrolet script and spotless stainless exhaust tips.

In 1972, the biggest and baddest motor you could shove between the fenders of a Chevrolet passenger car was the mighty LS5. And this cars original 454, which hangs a familiar 3999289 casting number behind a correct CRW suffix stamp and matching partial VIN, twists 270 horsepower into an impressive 390 lb./ft. of torque. At the top of the mighty mill, functional cowl induction funnels wind into an original Quadrajet carburetor thats threaded onto fresh stainless fuel lines. Below that carburetor, a sea of Chevy Orange paint spreads from the engines original intake and original, cast iron heads all the way to its original starter and original, cast iron exhaust manifolds. At the back of those manifolds, an original points distributor shoots fire through eight Packard TV R Suppression cables. And in front of those cables, a reproduction Delco battery complements an original radiator and correct plastic fan shroud. Aesthetically, this road ready Chevelles fresh exterior paint transitions nicely into a Satin Black engine bay that features a very high level of detail. New GM hoses, with appropriate tower clamps, snake around clean Harrison air conditioning and a correct Frigidaire compressor. And all the familiar extraneous bits, like the cars original water pump, original alternator housing and factory-correct smog equipment are present, sorted and fully accounted for.

The theme of road ready extends under this fully restored Super Sport, where youll find super clean floors and a rebuilt, factory-accurate chassis. Behind the stout engine, a rugged GM Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed sends power to a 12-bolt, posi-traction rear end thats fitted with correct 3.31 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a correct option F41 double A-arm front and 4-link rear suspension thats equipped with factory power steering, heavy duty sway bars and date-correct shock absorbers. The cars rebuilt power front disc and rear drum brake system is present, accounted for and functions exceptionally well. The aforementioned manifolds dump spent gases into high performance, true-dual pipes that mix baritone turbo mufflers with traditional, rear-mounted resonators. And power flows to the pavement via monochromatic Super Sport wheels and correct F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs. The cars frame, free of any major damage, is painted black to match its solid satin floors. And, in keeping with its raucous 454, much attention has been paid to making sure everything under this Chevelle is painted, tagged and virtually spotless!

Featuring a host of new components, and decked in classic black vinyl, this coupes fully restored interior is both comfortable and inviting. Its slick front bucket and rear bench seats, which feature embossed weave patterns that were designed to keep passengers backs cool, show hardly any signs of wear. In front of those seats, a straight and crack-free dash hangs deluxe Chevelle gauges above a correct Delco radio. Below that dash, fresh black carpet, which is protected by rugged rubber floor mats, centers a chrome horseshoe shifter inside an attractive, stainless-trimmed console. At the edge of that carpet, clean side panels hang spotless stainless trim and prerequisite SS emblems above chrome door hardware and small, pliable armrests. In front of the driver, a simple, SS branded steering wheel laps an optional tilting column. And behind the passengers, a fully restored trunk centers a full-size tire and correct jack assembly between a fresh mat and correct decklid decals.

Naturally, this pristine Chevelle is the recipient of many distinguished awards. Heres a short list of the cars major accolades:
