1969 Chevrolet Chevelle LS Swap Restomod Convertible Additional Info:

This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle LS Swap Restomod Convertible delivers everything you want in an awesome custom speedy machine. These factory drop-tops of this muscle car legend are rare. So it's already distinctively attractive even before you add in the LS motor, fully upgraded sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and the control of a six-speed. And you get to enjoy it all from a well-appointed A/C interior. So dig into the details on an absolutely attractive and absolutely powerful restomod build.
While this one goes beyond a classic Super Sport in its performance, they did want to make sure to give it the proper SS look. So they made a nice investment in the details. You especially see it up front where the blackout grille, clear headlights, and mirror-like bumper all add extra gravity to the aggressively sharp face of the '69 Chevelle. The dual power bulge hood, proper SS badging, blackout rear panel, and big dual exhaust tips are all part of this classically attractive muscle car package. Plus, the white SS side stripes that emphasize the gentle arch of the '69 Chevelle's profile, and it coordinates with the white top to make this one of the few convertibles that look impressive with the roof in place. Add in a shiny application of Marina Blue, and this Chevy has all the attractiveness of an ocean wave. But those shining 18-inch US Mags wheels are so prevalent, that you instantly know this Chevelle has much more than just vintage appeal.
With the flip of a switch, the roof powers down to reveal an added dimension of aggressiveness. After all, a full black interior just seems to announce a muscle car. There's only about 1k miles on this build, and the difference really shows inside. You have freshness in the details, right down to the dash pad, door panels, and carpeting. And there's added comfort from late-model front bucket seats with excellent bolstering. The rear seats even get stylish suede-like inserts. There's more in comfort from the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, upgraded speakers, and cold-blowing air conditioning (always a favorite on a top-down sunny day.) But a restomod is all about being an awesome driver's machine. That's why you have upgrades like the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel and a Dakota Digital gauge package that has a cool blue glow like the car's exterior. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?
Everywhere you park you'll want to lift the hood just to show off this powerhouse. There was a serious investment all around this car, and the engine bay alone was said to be $17k. It was all about getting fresh rebuilt modern power under the hood of this classic. The fuel-injected LS is one of the most potent and potential powerplants from Chevrolet, and so they made sure it was ready for primetime. The smooth/dark inner walls and ultra-tidy setup mean your eyes can't help but take notice of the custom engine covers that follow the exterior's theme. More than just look great, they made sure to install this correctly with the right supporting components, like a serpentine belt system and a large aluminum radiator with electric fan. It inhales deeply with a BBK 85mm throttle body and exhales with authority as headers feed the X-pipe dual exhaust. And control of this high-performance V8 and its thunderous soundtrack is firmly in your command thanks to the Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath this build, you can see there was a ton invested on the suspension. You'll spot fresh components, including tubular front A-arms, tubular rear arms, Viking double-adjustable coilovers, and thick sway bars front & rear. Plus, you have power steering, grippy ZR-rated tires, and Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors.
There is about $80k invested in this total custom build. It delivers a rare muscle car drop-top that is more comfortable, nimbler, and more powerful than what Chevy could have ever imagined. That's what makes it the ultimate classic for modern times. Call now!
