There's just something about a coupe that can carry the family and also looks so cool with its sleek hardtop design. So to find this 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle with a performance-built 350 V8, overdrive transmission, glossy red paint, and an A/C interior means this is the best of everything in one classic.
A bright red Chevelle is always a source of pride, but this one is truly a cut above. Bodywork is excellent all around, with great gaps and a lot of attention paid to getting those iconic black SS stripes correct. Then there's the cowl induction hood, blacked out grille, hood pins, and all that correct SS badging. It's built before new bumper laws so those big chrome kings fit much snugger to the body, and the rear still houses the taillights in a very cool way. All of this is just a great representation of factory features, but what let's people know there's something extra special about this coupe are the large 17-inch American Racing alloys that fill the wheel wells.
The interior was originally tan, but that wouldn't work on a mean machine like this. As a result the bucket seats, center console, door panels, carpeting, and dash have all been switched over to a correct SS interior. This kind of investment gives the interior a far fresher feeling than anything that came out of the 70s. Your right hand will love the iconic horseshoe shifter, and your left one grabs the factory-correct two-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is a proper round gauge package, including a large tach. The stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM stereo that keeps the period-correct knob-style appearance but adds features like an aux input for the most modern music players. It's the kind of feature that will keep everyone entertained when this sizeable Chevy is carrying a crowd. And just to make sure they all stay comfortable, there's modern R134a air conditioning.
Just like the exterior, you'll be filled with pride when you pop the hood. That's because a nicely presented small block with tidy, newer components and flashy valve covers and air cleaner is the sure sign of investment. But beyond just style, this 350 cubic-inch V8 has the performance substance of a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and Hooker competition headers. You get a terrific growl out of the dual exhaust, but this full package is far more than just a pure power machine. The suspension has a new front sway bar, as well as newer upper and lower control arms. Plus, power steering, front disc brakes, and a 400R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive makes this a great anytime/anywhere cruiser.
This is the Chevelle is as comfortable running to car shows the next state over as it is going on the morning commute. That's the kind of classic you can really enjoy every day. But we only have one of these up for grabs, so call today!
