1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 502 Restomod Additional Info:

The bold paint immediately attractions your attention to this 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Restomod. And it even has everything from a terrific body to a custom A/C interior to really prove there's been big investments here. But the real reason why this is so irresistible is because there's a big 502ci V8 under the hood. It's even matched with everything from a five-speed transmission to an upgraded sports suspension.
Let's start with the paint that's instantly grabbing your attention. It's Viper Yellow, and it immediately sets the right tone for this car. After all, even though this is a real-deal Super Sport, the factory could never deliver a hue like this. So everyone knows right from the first impression that this one has been upgraded. There's plenty of nicely contrasting darkness against this yellow. You see it in premium pieces like the black SS stripes, blackout SS grille, and tinted windows. But there's also a premium feeling to the dark side with the well-done black vinyl roof. And the quality feeling continues as you notice the superior fit of the body panels. And the brightwork looks terrific on everything from the form-fitting bumpers, to the upgraded 15-inch Weld racing wheels.
While there was a lot invested in making the exterior look good, there was definitely money left in the budget for the interior, too. It's a thoughtful setup where the front bucket seats have a custom pattern with suede-like inserts. And you might notice these have yellow contrast stitching to match the exterior. This is also on the rear seat, door panels, and dash for a detailed and uniform appearance. There are some nice comfort upgrades, like the cold-bowing air conditioning, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth, and a custom center console with speakers. But as much as these are features for comfort and distinction, this was definitely built to go fast. You understand it instantly when you slip into the driver's seat as you grab the Grant GT sports steering wheel. Beyond that is a full set of digital gauges as well as a few key analog ones below the dash. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?
As great as everything else is, it's what in the engine bay that you're going to love most about this restored and upgraded Chevelle. The V8 is ready for show duty with a tidy setup, smooth inner walls, and ton of polished components. The Chevrolet ZZ502 big block crate motor is a truly awesome power package right out of the box, and this one has a Demon four-barrel carburetor, a polished aluminum intake, and a set of headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the H-pipe dual exhaust. So you have a fresh powerhouse and a ton of muscle. And because this is a thoughtful all-around build, you also have the right supporting pieces, like an electronic ignition, Optima red top battery, billet pulleys, serpentine belt system, and a large aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. This has the right components to get the big power to the pavement. It starts with the control of a stout Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual transmission, and that feeds a 12-bolt 3.73 Positraction rear end. And don't forget to check out the undercarriage photos where you'll see the suspension has been fully upgraded. This includes tubular front A-arms, a reinforced four-link rear, and thick sway bars front & rear. Add in power steering, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and power brakes with discs up front, and this makes for an easy way to harness big power.
The sale comes with build receipts, maintenance records, and service manuals. This is the real-deal Code 138 SS396 Chevelle that has been given huge investment to go well beyond its already established muscle car legend. So if you want all eyes and ears to be on you, call today!
