This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle was restored in 2010 and has been driven just 1,500 since completion. Following the restoration, the Chevelle was a Senior 1st Prize winner with the AACA for 2010. The Chevelle was a Monaco Orange car from the factory, a color which was only offered by Chevrolet as an option on SS cars. During the restoration, the color was changed to Daytona yellow.
The car features a two stage paint job that has been color sanded to a nicer than factory finish. The body has excellent door, hood, and trunk gaps with straight metal work throughout. The interior has been restored where needed and is a mix of new and good condition original parts. The Chevelle features the optional gauge package, console with staple shifter, and correct GM seat belts. Options: Power steering Power brakes Factory air (inop) Gauge package AM/FM Radio Console Turbo Hydramatic 400 12-bolt posi rear end Bucket Seats
The engine is a 1971 402 big block out of a Chevelle and the transmission is a Turbo Hydramatic 400. The engine utilizes factory exhaust manifolds and a new aluminized dual exhaust system. It produces a mellow factory tone at idle, and a nice growl under full acceleration. It also falls into a nice idle upon start up and runs cool after extended use.
The suspension on the car features new ball joints, tie rods, shocks and sway bar bushings which produce a factory type ride and feel. Overall the car is easy to drive, and would make a fine car to drive to shows and to local cruise nights. For the collector seeking a true SS, this highly optioned, award winning Chevelle is a great candidate.
