Vehicle Description

WHEN I WAS A KID A FELLOW OWNED A 1968 CHEVELLE 396/375HP. HE WORKED AT A LOCAL GAS STATION AT 5 POINTS IN LEVITTOWN PA. I WOULD SIT ON A CURB OUTSIDE MY SECTION WHERE I GREW UP. I WAS 13 YEARS OLD AT THE TIME. HE WOULD COME OUT OF THE GAS STATION ONTO WOODBORNE ROAD AND HE WOULD RIP DOWN THE HWY GRABBING ALL 4 GEARS. I WOULD NEVER FORGET THE SOUND OF THAT CAR. I WOULD ALWAYS LISTEN CAREFULLY TO SEE IF HE WOULD MISS 3RD GEAR. AS I GREW UP IN THE BUSINESS TRYING TO SAVE UP MONEY TO OWN A CAR JUST LIKE IT. IT TOOK ME OVER 10 YEARS TO FIND THE CHEVELLE WITH THE ORIGINAL DRIVETRAIN BECAUSE BACK IN THE DAY THE PEOPLE THAT GREW UP IN THIS ERA KNEW THAT 396/375 WITH THE SOLID LIFT CAMSHAFT REV FAST AND IT WAS NOT UNCOMMON TO MISS A GEAR AND HURT A MOTOR. THIS IS THE FIRST CAR THAT GOT ME COLLECTING THESE VERY RARE CARS OF THAT ERA. I BOUGHT THIS CAR OUTSIDE OF FLINT MICHIGAN FROM AN OLDER GENTLEMAN THAT WORKED FOR GM AT THE TIME.
