MULTI-PORT FUEL-INJECTED 502 CI RESTO MOD, TORCH RED, TREMEC 5-SPEED, R134 A/C!
If you've been dreaming of building yourself the ultimate Chevelle, DO NOT start until you've had a good, long look at this '67. Built on a 28,000 mile original car with factory A/C, the specifications read like a high-end parts catalog, including a fuel injected 502, and it all combines to create one of the finest resto-mods we've ever featured.
Refinished in Torch Red during the build, there was just no point in trying to be subtle. Most of the original sheetmetal was retained, but in the quest for perfection, one of the quarters and one of the doors were replaced. The trim was all shaved to give it a sleeker look and a cowl-induction hood was installed simply because nothing looks better on an early A-body. The de-badging was thorough, including the emblems on the grille and tail panel, which is blacked-out in SS style. The two-stage urethane paint looks so spectacular that onlookers might think it's still wet and it's obvious that a lot of late nights went into getting all the panels aligned just right. The chrome and stainless that does remain is in excellent condition, with show-quality plating on the bumpers and fresh taillights out back.
At first glance, the interior looks pretty stock. Low-back buckets have upholstery that uses the correct factory pattern, but the material is a lot more supple and comfortable than the hardy, shiny GM stuff. Reproduction door panels and carpets with the correct weave add to the illusion that this is a fairly stock Chevelle. The original dash looks pretty ordinary until you turn the key and it lights up with an instrument panel full of Dakota Digital instruments flanked by a wood-rimmed Grant GT steering wheel on a Flaming River tilt column. A custom center console adds a dose of style and practicality, and houses the Hurst shifter for the Tremec TKO600 5-speed gearbox underneath. A powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with a separate amplifier provides the soundtrack and as I mentioned, this is a factory air car, with all of the original equipment upgraded to modern pieces compatible with R134a refrigerant. In the trunk, you'll find a correct repro mat, a full-sized spare, and the relocated battery inside a stainless box.
Mechanically, this car is a wolf in, well, wolf's clothing. The 502 cubic inch big block is topped by aluminum heads and fed by a trick Mass-Flow multi-point fuel injection system that makes it start quickly, idle like a modern car, and pull like a freight train. Hidden under the low-profile air cleaner, it looks deceptively stock, but when you fire it up and it belts out its song through the twin 3-inch Flowmasters, there's no doubt that this is a special machine. A Griffin aluminum radiator with twin Spal fans keeps it cool no matter what, and you're in good hands with a Lakewood scatter shield for the Centerforce clutch and an aluminum driveshaft with safety loop. Out back there's a 12-bolt with 3.73s inside, all hanging on a stock suspension with new springs and Hotchkiss sway bars. The front suspension offers tubular A-arms and fresh KYB shocks that tighten up the handling. Finally, big 17-inch Torque Thrusts wear right-sized 225/50/17 front and 225/60/17 rear Goodyear performance radials.
There's so much going on in this car that you really need to call to get the full story. But rest assured, it is every bit as amazing as it looks. Call today!
