1967 CHEVELLE SS CONVERTIBLE "RESTO-MOD"- NEW "GROUND-UP"
This beautiful Chevelle Convertible is in our restoration shop
right now. We are completing the finishing touches and final
details with a total completion date of January 2021.
We purchased this car (07/2020) from a longtime owner who had spent
big buck$ on it's engine, trans & rear as well as the brakes,
steering & suspension. He also replaced the white convertible top
and the white bucket seat interior too. Actually, the car had nice
Marina Blue paint and a straight & solid body with no rust issues
but... it had "OLD SKOOL" rear 1/4 fender flairs which may have
been cool back in the 70's/80's but now-a-day they just don't get
it !! As soon as we got it in our shop we took the car apart,
stripped it down and sent it off the our metal shop to have both
rear 1/4 panels, drop off's and outer wheel houses replaced. Then
sent it off to our body shop to be fitted, block sanded and painted
in PPG's "Marina Blue" using 2 stage base/clear. We then cut,
buffed & polished it to a show car shine. We also replaced the
chrome & trim and all of the weather stripping too. As mentioned,
the white convertible top was recently replaced and is in like new
condition as well as the beautiful white bucket seat interior.
Power comes from a stout G.M.P.P. 502c.i. - 502h.p. crate engine
that runs super strong & sounds awesome and is backed up by a
rebuilt M-22 (ROCK CRUSHER) 4 speed transmission with Hurst shifter
and 12 bolt posi-traction rear with 3:73 gears. Other features
include, 4 wheel power disc brakes, quick ratio power steering,
tubular upper & lower control arms, fat front sway bar, solid rear
track control bars, 18" front & 20" rear chrome US MAG U110 wheels,
in-dash gauges with blinker tach, factory wood steering wheel,
retro sound stereo, Hooker Super Comp big tube headers w/ 3" Flow
Master dual exhaust, serpentine pulley system, aluminum radiator
and more. I am a believer thatif you start with a nice project car
you end up with something really special and this car turned out
better then anyone expected !!
NOTE* THIS CAR IS NOT COMPLETED ! PICTURES/VIDEO COMING SOON !
