This 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Heavy Chevy tribute is a great way to
present a rare and distinct version of one of the most iconic
hardtops out there. And it only gets better on this example that
enhances its small block power V8 and features upgrades like an
overdrive transmission, performance suspension, and four-wheel disc
The Heavy Chevy is a hardtop of legend. It gave a powerful look to
the small block Chevelles, but these hardtops were only available
for two years. So we even like seeing tributes because it says the
owner knows a bit more about Chevelle history than just a casual
enthusiast. But the real reason why you want this one is because
it's the right mix of boldness and upgraded driver. This starts
with the upgraded red paint. This later respray continues to have a
radiant style that's right on a muscle car. And a Heavy Chevy looks
powerful with the power dome hood, blackout grille, and wide
exhaust tips. They also upgraded the intimidation with a
forward-leaning stance and competition-style Torq Thrust wheels.
Plus, the unique stripe package lets the Heavy Chevy leave a
weighty impression. But more than just look powerful, everything
from the bright chrome on the bumpers to the way the doors close
with confidence gives you the right feeling of quality.
The black accents get you ready for a clean and inviting all-black
interior. It's nicely detailed, right down to the working dome
light and horseshoe shifter. There are even upgraded speakers
already in place for you to put in a stereo of your choosing. There
are the right upgrades for a cool cruiser, like the front bucket
seats and a center console with cup holders. And the upgraded
sports steering wheel and Dakota Digital gauges give you the proper
feeling of an upgraded driver's car.
The engine bay may just be our favorite part of this car, and it's
not just because tit has an awesome polish radiating from the
center against the dark inner walls. The Heavy Chevy always looked
mean, but insurance regulations in the early 1970s meant these were
small block cars that didn't have the power to be as legendary as
its Super Sport siblings. However, this car rectifies that with
serious power. It correctly still keeps the small block power, but
the 383 cubic in stroker motor means it has a displacement that
rivals some big blocks. And this recently rebuilt motor has go-fast
goodies like aluminum heads, an aluminum intake, and topped with a
Holley four-barrel carburetor. And a nice set of headers lets the
exhale with power into the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers.
The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is a TCI Streetfighter
unit that can handle big power and deliver overdrive comfort. This
feeds a stout Ford 9-inch rear. As you look underneath, you can see
an upgraded sports suspension with QA1 tubular front A-arms, boxed
rear arms, and QA1 sway bars. Add in power steering, wide modern
tires, and a four-wheel power disc brakes upgrade, and this is a
powerful hardtop that also can cruise with confidence.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance
records. This Chevelle pays tribute to the Heavy Chevy by giving
you bold looks and upgrading it to an awesome all-around muscle
car. Call today!!!
