Vehicle Description

The body was off the frame and put on a rotisserie for a show quality restoration. This is a clean southern car with 69,000 actual miles documented on the title. A guy paid $40,000 for this car in good condition then had a total restoration done. This one is exceptional.

EXTERIOR: It is a gorgeous car- the color, the stance, the red accents are beautiful. Outstanding fit and finish. I went the extra on this one because of its quality. It is laser straight from every angle, all the panels fit square and flush. It is smooth everywhere, I don't see any signs of damage, rust, bubbles or cracks. The original Chateau Slate is a beautiful color. It is PPG base coat- clear coat. The metal flake is laid out evenly and the clear coat is polished smooth and glossy. All of the exterior trim his been replaced including the bumpers, grills, hood ornament and grills in the scoops. All the stainless trim around the windows, the bowtie mirrors, door handles and emblems are new. All the trim on the tail panel, taillights are new. The tail panel is gloss black. All of the glass is new. The windows roll up and down smooth and fit right. New 14 inch rally wheels with new trim. New reproduction Wide Oval redline tires. The door jambs are even glossy, all the weather strips and window seals were replaced.

INTERIOR: It is completely restored from carpet to headliner. Down on the floor is new carpet, sill plates and seat belts front and back. The center console is new. It has a correct 4-speed shifter with reverse lockout and chrome ball. The seats have been rebuilt with new springs, cushions and upholstery. The door panels are new including the armrests, window cranks and handles. In front of me is a beautifully restored dash area. New lense, chrome bezels, glovebox liner, chrome horn ring and dash pad. The metal is painted gloss black. It has a neatly installed gauge cluster right below the dash. Above me is a new tight fitting headliner, new visors, mirror and dome light. There is a new wiring harness too.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Rebuilt original 396 motor. It is dated properly and the casting #s are correct. The motor compartment is restored and detailed to factory condition. The motor has all stock components including the manifolds, chrome valve covers, air cleaner and even the decals. It has a new radiator, shroud and fan. It also has reproduction GM hoses and clamps. Features include power steering with the correct remote reservoir and a new power brake system with a dual reservoir and a cadmium plated booster. All the metal is painted a smooth, semi glass finish.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It is completely rock solid metal. It's painted with the grey and aqua spatter. The bottom of the trunk lid and the jamb are just as smooth and glossy as the car. It has a new weather strip, backseat divider and a trunk mat. The spare has a tire cover.

UNDERSIDE: The body was removed from the chassis. The frame was media blasted and powder coated. The suspension and steering is completely new- bushings, shocks, balljoints, tierod ends, etc. The rear suspension is new- control arm bushings, springs and shocks. The brake system is completely new- converted to disc in front, new brake lines, hoses and emergency brake cables. The new dual exhaust system has Flowmaster mufflers. The fuel system is new including the tank, sending unit, straps and lines. Looking up at the motor it still looks brand new- new motor mounts, freeze plugs, fuel pump and starter. The Muncie 4-speed is period correct (dated November, car was built in November). It was rebuilt, the bell housing is clean, shift linkage and trans mount are new. In back it has a rebuilt, correct 12 bolt with 3.55 gears. The underbody is rust free, prepped and sealed with a rubberized undercoat. The body and frame were reunited with new bushings.

I think this Chevelle is exceptional. I am proud to have bought it and to own it. I really feel the next owner will feel the same way!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
