This is simply an incredible car. Once you get past the stunning good looks you get to some serious hardware. This one was built to show off AND to be a blast to drive. This is easily a car you could use for sunny day driving and take to car shows on the weekend. Take a good look at the photos, this is a quality car.
The body and paint on this Chevelle is very nice. The trim and bright work are all nice as well. The trunk pan, floors, quarters, doors, etc are all in great condition. This was a show quality car built in the 2007 range and steadily hardware improved since. It has seen several thousand miles of use since, but remains a very nice car. There are some minor stone chips but only visible on very close inspection.
Inside the interior is trimmed out well. The front bucket seats were just installed. They have new trim and upholstery, very nicely done. The carpet, door panels, headliner and dash were done in '07 and have seen some limited use but are still quite nice. The factory radio is still in place and the plastic interior pieces are in good condition as well.
Under the Cowl Induction SS Hood lies a 4-Bolt Main 350 topped with ported Dart Heads, roller rockers, RPM Air Gap Intake Manifold, CSU Blow-Thru Carburetor & matching carb hat and an ATI Pro-Charger Supercharger. The Ceramic Coated Headers are hooked to a FlowMaster 3" Mandrel Bent system that sounds AMAZING! This engine revs like a trip hammer and has no issues reaching triple digit speeds in a heartbeat. The cool thing is though this car drives and has the manners of a nicely tuned 300 horsepower 350. The ProCharger's P1-SC torque improvement is very noticeable off idle and with highly improved throttle response. With a Centrifugul Supercharger the power improves with RPM and this one just feels better as the RPM's climb. You simply have to experience this one to understand it.
Out back GM's toughest 12-Bolt differential with Posi-Traction does its best to keep the traction planted.
A Hotchkis suspension kit was installed out back to plant the power. It consists of Heavy Duty Control Arms and springs. Up front new springs keep the front at the perfect height and the ride is truly nice. This car rides excellent, handles well and is a blast to drive!
This is a very well built car. Easily nice enough for weekend shows, capable of long distance cruises and will always bring a smile to your face. Driving this car at levels never dreamed of by the original designers is somehow easy and comfortable. At 30 miles per hour simply squeaze the throttle, you don't have to 'punch it', and the car will gear down seamlessly and start to skate sideways. No drama as it is totally predictable, but highly addictive. Even at highway speeds this one fights for traction when pushed. The really cool thing is that it never feels scary or out of control when done with proper room. Don't get stupid as this car could easily ruin your day with a stupid move. With a mature driver, this one will make you feel (and seem like to everyone else in the car) like a much better driver than you probably are. Thank God for the Big Baer Brakes and Massive Tires as they can haul you down from those triple digit speed faster than your body might like.
