For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Do you want a big block Chevelle that's ready to hit today's roads? A dialed-in, car-show dominator and night brawler with just the right killer look? Love the thrill of powerful LS3 horsepower and torque, control of a modern 4L60E automatic transmission, and the comfort of a buck-seat A/C cabin? Well, this 1966 Chevelle Restomod has all of that and even more, and it comes with a brilliant Mist Blue wrapper to boot!

Finished just 1,535 miles ago, this potent resto-mod has enhancements to almost every major system on board. Starting with the '66 hardtop body style is a great choice, because that way the hardware becomes as important as the look. This baby goes way more than just skin deep, but we'll get to that soon enough. First, about that skin - the unique Mist Blue paint gives it a high-performance look and there's still nothing like showing up in an attention-grabbing car with a flashy set of big wheels. The curb appeal is really off the charts, and with deep, lustrous finish, the straight panels, and exacting body gaps, this top driver-quality Chevelle needs no excuses. You'll note that they wisely kept the original hood with its faux air intakes and added the requisite SS badges at the ends and crossed flag emblems on the front fenders, just to keep things looking like the factory intended. The chrome and stainless was polished up and reinstalled, but again the overall look is fairly stock, giving this Chevelle a bit of cover story for the performance that's hidden inside.

Black upholstery is an excellent choice with the light blue bodywork and it's been neatly restored with a few tweaks to make it more comfortable in today's world. The pleated stitching looks crisp and clean on the black seat covers and OEM-spec door panels that were installed during the build, and with a taut headliner above and plush carpets below, the cabin is sealed up neatly with high-end soft materials. A super-cool 2-spoke steering with wood rim is fitted to the stock tilt column and the full array of digital gauges inside the factory bezel are a sight to behold, with crisp renderings and incredibly cool LED lighting illuminating the engine's read-outs. There's also a sought-after factory console that splits the front buckets, and it houses a chrome T-handle shifter and the optional built-in clock that was a really cool factory feature. By the looks of things, this is also a factory air-conditioned car, but the system is now powered by modern components under the hood and it's filled with cold R134a refrigerant, so it's easy to keep in top condition. Kickin' tunes are delivered via a retro-style AM/FM/AUX stereo system with speakers throughout the cabin, along with JL Audio subwoofers/amplifiers set up in the trunk, neatly stowed away behind custom panels that look very slick.

The modern LS3-based V8 under the hood obviously wasn't factory-issue, but it's a neat fit in the Chevelle's engine bay nevertheless. Fuel-injected and packing big horsepower and even more torque, the entire drivetrain was professionally installed and wired using modern controllers, wiring, and plumbing, and it runs superbly with the accessories managed by a serpentine belt system. A cold-air intake system with long-tube filter system helps the block breathe easy, and with a modern alternator, ignition system, and options like modern power steering and power front disc brakes, this Chevelle can handle the rigors of the modern road with great aplomb. A 4L60E 4-speed automatic seems immune to the torque twisting through it and a custom driveshaft spins a heavy-duty 10-bolt rear end out back. Ceramic-coated long-tube headers feed a custom stainless dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers that exits under the rear bumper and sounds spectacular. It handles superbly with fresh suspension, steering, and braking components underneath, and the builders nailed the stance, too, with a predatory crouch that totally makes this car work atop flashy alloys with SS center-caps that are wrapped in staggered 225/45/17 front and 255/45/18 rear performance radials.

Professionally built with loads of top-of-the-line hardware underneath a beautiful veneer. Most 1966 Chevelles are already pretty darn cool, but we have to admit that not many are slicker than this resto-mod. Call today!
