PRO-BUILT '69 CHEVELLE, EVERYTHING NEW, THUMPING 454 V8, AUTO, TUBULAR ARMS!!
You see cars like this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle rumble into cruise nights every week, but not many have the horsepower to back up the look like this one does. Packing a built 454 and a spectacular black paint job, this is an alpha predator whose low-key looks are all a part of the game.
What they say about black paint is true, and it's very clear that someone spent A LOT of time on the bodywork of this Chevelle before the paint went on. The '69 Chevelles always look best in dark colors, and without stripes or other adornments, this one has a simple, brutal look that's extremely appealing. They didn't even add a cowl induction hood, instead keeping the much cooler stock unit with its faux air vents at the base of the windshield. Gaps are extremely good all around, which shouldn't be surprising, since virtually every inch of sheetmetal on this car except the roof and deck lid is brand new. The two-stage urethane paint has an incredible shine and depth, which is what you need with black to get maximum effect, and the dark finish really makes the stainless trim pop. New bumpers, a correct SS grille, and even authentic "Chevelle" script emblems all make this car look pretty stock, but even so, you can tell this one is something special with just a quick glance.
From behind the wheel, you'd never realize that this Chevelle was so heavily fortified under the hood... until you turn the key. Black buckets, a console, and a factory steering wheel accurately re-create 1969 inside and it's all brand new. It's got an unusual tilt steering column to go with the horseshoe shifter and the bright, clear gauges were surely restored with the rest of the car, including the factory tach. Fresh carpets and new door panels continue the all-new theme, and with rubber mats on the floors, it'll look good for years to come. There is no radio, but why would you need such a thing with all that entertainment under the hood? The back seat is also new and looks it, while the headliner is taut and even, suggesting that the guys in charge of the interior really knew what they were doing. Even the trunk is correctly outfitted with a reproduction mat, full-sized spare, and cover.
The 454 cubic inch V8 under the hood wasn't factory-issue, but it's a neat fit in the Chevelle's engine bay. With a lot of aluminum, including the intake manifold, heads, and valve covers, it's not substantially heavier than a small block preserving the handling. Chevy Orange on the block reminds us who built the hardware and just about everything you can see or touch is brand new. A TH400 3-speed automatic seems immune to the torque twisting through it and there's a 12-bolt rear with 3.73s on a Posi inside. A new Flowmaster exhaust with turn-downs ahead of the rear axle sounds spectacular, especially with long-tube headers, and for handling there are also tubular A-arms up front. It nails the stance, too, with a predatory crouch that totally makes this car work and classic Weld wheels carry 165/80/15 front and 295/50/15 rear blackwalls for the perfect big-n-little combination.
