I bought this Chevelle my senior year of high school in 1983. I was 17 and it was my first car. I still own it today.
History of this Vehicle
Bought it with slight front end damage. Repaired it and removed the factory 307(130hp) motor and put in a 350 from a 79 Chevy Truck. That was eventually replaced with a 402 BB from a 72 Kingswood Wagon. Not enough power so I replaced it with a 396(350hp) out of a 1969 Chevelle SS. It now has a 468 BB Chevy, Turbo 400, 12 bolt 4:10 posi from a 70 Chevelle SS, buckets, SS hood.
Plans for this Vehicle
Plans are to replace the quarter panels and do a frame off restoration. Would like to replace the dash with an all new rally gauge set-up and add front disc brakes. Always wanted to paint it gold with black stripes. I will never part with this Chevelle.
Sponsors & Special Thanks
Special thanks to my dad for helping me with this car over the years.
