It's easy to spot the cars with a ton of time and money wrapped up in them. Other cars might have shiny paint, some might have the right stance, but when you see this 1972 Chevelle SS next to its siblings, it stands out. A frame-off build that took more than eight years, it's a romping, stomping big block with the moves to match its stunning good looks.
The electric blue paint is quite a bit more vivid than your garden-variety Marina Blue, and with a tough of metallic in it, this car simply glows in the sunlight. With a finish rebuilt from the surface up, it's been straightened, smoothed, sanded, and buffed to look great, but not so perfect that you're afraid to drive it. Panel gaps are just the way the factory would have done it and with white SS stripes, it definitely has the look that makes guys on the street do a double-take when it rumbles up to a red light. The cowl-induction hood with pins certainly helps with the aggressive look and they obviously invested in the bright trim to make it look great from the front and rear. "SS402" badges are not quite stock but if you've got the extra cubes, why not advertise a bit; it's not like this car is about stealth anyway. It's also got proper SS badges front and rear, along with a blacked-out grille, so nobody will be accusing it of going light on jewelry.
Blazing white buckets highlight an interior that's full of new pieces and give it a flashy yet OEM look. The door panels were replaced and match the seats, while the black carpets and dash mean that things will stay looking good for years to come. You already know we love the horseshoe shifter and center console, which no self-respecting Chevelle SS should be without, and it's been fitted with a tilt column and factory-style steering wheel so you'll feel right at home behind the wheel. Factory instruments are joined by an under-dash oil pressure gauge and the radio slot is waiting for you to add the entertainment system of your choice. Factory A/C is enhanced with all-new components under the hood, including a modern compressor and R134a refrigerant, making this Chevelle a great candidate for the next Power Tour or cross-country trip. The trunk is finished with spatter paint as original and includes a sound-absorbing mat to make it friendly on the highway.
The 402 cubic inch big block has been built for combat. With an .030 overbore, Edelbrock intake, and Quadrajet carb under the original cowl-induction air cleaner, it has the hardware to back up its awesome look. The block has been color-matched to the body, so it has a trick, custom look and with chrome valve covers there's just the right amount of sparkle. The brakes and alternator have been upgraded with modern hardware and the HEI ignition system is still one of the best ever created. Backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and heavy-duty 12-bolt rear with 3.73 gears on a Posi, it's a big blue hammer in search of nails. Big sway bars, a new dual exhaust system, and a recent gas tank are other big bonuses that make this car hard to resist. Shiny Cragars always look right on these cars and they spin 235/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
