1965 Chevy Chevelle Convertible (Resto-Mod) - The history of the Chevrolet Chevelle is great but who would have thoughts that 54 years down the road it would still be one of the hottest cars on the highway. Who would have also thought that the most desirable classics today would be the models, like this example, which have been outfitted with modern drivetrains. But, it really isn't too hard to fathom. After all, how can you beat the unique looks of a 60's muscle car paired with the reliability and performance of a late-model sports car. This beautiful Viper Red Chevelle is one such vehicle that is the perfect mix of both new and old. The majority of the restoration was completed in 2016 but as part a large car collection, the most recent owner just buttoned-up the last few items earlier this year. In fact, the Chevelle has seen just under 100 miles of asphalt since completion. A complete list of features and options includes; 5.7L V8 (LS1 - from a '02 Vette), 4L60E Automatic, RWD, Power Steering, Power Brakes (front discs), ECP Radiator, Optima Red Top Battery, Classic A/C, Center Console Storage, Chrome Grill, Chrome Bumpers/Mirrors, Rubber Floormats, Black Convertible Boot, Retro AM/FM/Bluetooth/Aux Stereo, 17" Ridler Chrome Torque Thrust Wheels, and Thick Sumitomo Tires! You definitely couldn't build one this nice for less than our asking price. And why spend months writing checks to a restoration shop when you could be driving the end result tomorrow?
