Watch Video

The car has gone through an incredible transformation into a completely updated restomod pro touring Chevelle. It's undergone a complete restoration and lots of subtle fabrication, with just the original body, frame and some trim remaining. The paint is Granite Crystal Metallic with semigloss black trim. The bumpers have been smoothed and painted to match as well as the entire under carriage and engine bay. The fire wall has been cleaned up and has a custom transmission tunnel built to fit the larger 6L80 trans.

It has a completely rebuilt LS engine with all of the correct necessary hardware including new gaskets, seals, and ARP bolts, LS3 intake with the 821 rectangular port heads, with a new XER Comp camshaft installed that makes great power, and is still very street-able. All of the valve train has been beefed up to support the larger cam. The engine runs very strong with around 500+ crank hp.

This car is practically a new car and has only been driven a few hundred miles. It drives so nice and is plenty quick. It corners hard and stops even harder. There's been a ton work done and only quality part and fabrication. I have lots of photos of the build if you'd like to see more. Also, please call if you have any questions or would like to get more photos.
