FRAME-OFF RESTORED, 350 CI V8, 4 SPD, BARGAIN PRICE, CORRECT COLORS, SUPER NICE
This 1967 Chevelle delivers big fun in a reasonably-priced package and just doesn't seem to be trying too hard to be something it's not. It's the kind of car that a lot of guys would love to own and always figure that they're just too expensive. Well, isn't it time to stop wishing and get into the game?
The code Y Butternut Yellow is this car's original color and looks fantastic; it really enhances the image of this clean-looking Chevelle. This neat A-body has the clean, uncluttered lines that made it one of the most popular muscle cars of all time, yet doesn't advertise with add-ons like an aftermarket hood or fake SS badges. Instead, it's more like the car you might have owned in, say, 1971 when horsepower was cheap and you could get a clean car like this for not a lot of money. Those long quarter panels are straight, body alignment is good, and with a black pinstripe highlighting the body's curves, it has a classic look. Urethane paint shines up nicely and is what we all wish Butternut Yellow actually looked like in 1967. All the chrome bits look quite good, including both bumpers and the stock Chevelle grille, and when was the last time you saw one of these with the standard black tail panel, which actually looks pretty cool against the yellow paint.
Black is really the only choice with a yellow body, and the restored bench seats wear reproduction seat covers that look right and fit well. You know how we love a no-nonsense 4-speed shifter and bench seats, suggesting a car built for a purpose, and with a Hurst cue ball you're not likely to miss any more shifts in the heat of battle. The dash isn't flashy and it isn't loaded with options, but that also helps keep weight under control and gives you less to worry about down the road, and when the basics are this good, what else do you need? Things like the steering wheel, door handles, and the dash knobs still shine up nicely, and even the original AM radio still lives in the dash. But they didn't cut corners on the restoration, as you can see in the tidy trunk, which includes a brand new mat that's never been installed, plus a spare tire with matching cover.
Someone spent wisely on the 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood, which sparkles with fresh Chevy Orange engine enamel and an Edelbrock dress-up kit. An aftermarket intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor help cement the Chevelle's performance legacy, even in small block form, and with long-tube headers and a burbling dual exhaust system, it sounds potent. The chassis has also been nicely finished, which is practically unheard-of in a car at this price level, with shiny color-matched floors, new springs, power steering, and a 4-speed linked to a 10-bolt rear end. The factory suspension hasn't been altered in any radical way, so it still rides and handles as the factory intended. Factory Rally wheels with staggered 205/70/15 and 235/75/15 redline radials give it an old-school performance look that's exactly right for this low-key Chevelle.
That reasonable price tag doesn't mean someone cut corners, and with a great low-profile look and nice attention to detail, this Chevelle delivers big time bang for the buck. Call today!
