1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Additional Info:

We don't have to tell you that this car makes a stunning first impression, because that's exactly what made you stop and look at this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible. But because this is a restomod, it has the kind of modern A/C interior, versatile five-speed transmission, huge big block power, and overall superior build quality that lets you know this one won't disappoint no matter if its showing off or driving the long haul.This is the kind of restomod that draws attention and makes others jealous. Red convertibles always look great, but when your investment in the paintwork is the same kind of money people spend on their entire car, the result is absolutely stunning. Deep clearcoat and plenty of metallic element make this Candy Apple Red look like its dripping wet in the sunlight. But to make sure it's truly an award-worthy presentation, only the best canvas for this artistry will do. We love these '67s because they combine well-creased sheetmetal with gentile curves, and when the body has received this level of attention, you can see all the best lines that helped define its era. Added to this is brightwork in all the right places like extra wide bumpers, full-width grille, proper hood vents, rocker trim, and Boyd Coddington alloys that are staggered 17/18-inch front/back to emphasize the serious power coming from the rear. But even without the superior presentation, this classic would be quite desirable for its rarity. After all, convertibles made up less than 6% of total Chevelle/Malibu production in 1967.As much as this is a classic American, the color combination has European sensibilities. In fact, the darker red vinyl roof looks like Italian style. And if you like this presentation, you'll love it even more with the top down. That's because the custom bucket seats, side panels, upper dash, boot cover, and center console all match this burgundy-like appearance. It's all tied together nicely with the carpeting, door tops, and other elements matching the bolder exterior red. This kind of total uniform presentation that tells you there was a lot of thought that went into the build. But more than look terrific, a restomod is all about providing upgraded comfort, too. That's why the seats have extra bolstering, there's power windows, and we love how the grippy steering wheel has a similar pattern to the exterior alloys. You even have ice cold modern R134a air conditioning so you can stay cool even when the roof is down. But there's also a great performance side to a restomod, too. And you realize it the moment you spot the extra gear on the Hurst shifter.The presentation of the engine bay can win you awards all on its own. The smooth inner walls that were painted Candy Apple are an instant signal to a quality frame-off restoration (and the fully painted undercarriage is the cherry on top!) Plus, there are so many polished pieces, we dare you to find another component that need a mirror-like finish. And it all looks this amazing because there's only about 3,500 miles on the whole build! We know the callouts on this one say 427, but we bet you won't mind the extra displacement of this 454 V8. Plus, it includes a full Edelbrock upgrade package with a four-barrel carburetor, intake, and aluminum heads. The polished long tube headers add even more power as they also contribute to the thunderous rumble of the dual exhaust. You also need the right transmission to take full advantage of the powerful V8, so a Tremec five-speed is there to make sure you always have a quick downshift into blistering acceleration. And all this power is nothing without control. That's why the suspension has been upgraded with thick sway bars, a beefed up rear end (w/adjustable coilovers), power steering, and a vented and drilled four-wheel disc brake system.You've seen all the pictures, and so you know this total quality build is one of those rare machines that will have you placing a mirror under it at the car shows. But if you want to start winning awards this weekend, you need to call today!
