Chevelle SS 454
SUPERCLEAN, PROBUILT CHEVELLE, BBC 454 V8, AUTO, PB, PS, R134, JUST FINISHED, A+
First impressions tell you a lot, and I'm betting you just said to yourself, "Wow, nice car!" when you saw this slick 1972 Chevelle SS. Wearing stunning anthracite gray paint and packing a gnarly 454 inch big block, it's every bit as cool in person as it appears in photos. Let me convince you.
First, that paint is from the Ford Mustang color pallet (sorry Bowtie fans). It's called Mineral Gray and looks simply awesome on the slick Chevelle bodywork. Broken up by a black SS stripes that were painted on and buried under the clear, this Chevelle totally nails the high-performance look. Bodywork is extremely impressive, with a lot of time invested in getting the panels flat and straight before any of that elegant paint went on. With a cowl-induction hood, blacked-out SS grille, and arguably the best-looking front end of any Chevelle ever built, the car looks fast just sitting still. Professionals were hard at work color sanding and buffing the paint while other guys polished the stainless and installed fresh weather seals and emblems, all of which sparkle like jewelry. The quarters and floors are new, so no worries about rust, and you can tell by the reflections in the paint that the guys who did the work were real pros.
The black interior is all-new and all-beautiful. New black leather Scat Procar buckets plus new door panels, carpets, headliner, and package shelf were fitted, replicating the originals exactly and continuing the SS theme. A center console sports a slick horseshoe shifter that's linked to a TH400 3-speed automatic, and a factory 3-spoke steering wheel hangs on a tilt column to make it easy to get comfortable. This car also carries factory A/C (now with upgraded modern hardware behind the scenes) and an upgraded 200 wattAM/FM/MP3 stereo, and while those gauges may appear stock, they're from Dakota Digital and give it a true SS look Everything you can see or touch is new, making this interior a great place to spend some time; even the back seat was custom upholstered in leather to match the custom front buckets! The rust-free trunk offers a new mat and a full-sized spare with its own cover.
You want muscle? This car delivers in a big way with a 454 cubic inch V8 that was built for combat. Thanks to an Edelbrock aluminum intake and 750 CFM carb, MSD ignition, and careful tuning, it starts instantly and idles with that rumble that means a big Comp Cams camshaft lives inside. The big block is an easy fit in the Chevelle's engine bay and it's beautifully dressed, including a set of restored Mickey Thompson finned valve covers. A big aluminum radiator with twin electric fans keep it cool, and all that new equipment means reliability, and with the upgrades, it pulls like a freight train and offers almost endless reserves of torque. Hooker long-tube headers dump into a dual exhaust system, so it sounds potent without being rude, and like I said, that underbody is clean thanks to the full restoration. A 12-bolt full of 2.76 gears means this is an effortless highway cruiser and the big block doesn't need a lot of gear to get rolling, making it surprisingly docile but incredibly potent. Polished Torque Thrust wheels sparkle against the dark gray paint and wear fat BFG rubber.
Professionally built and detailed to take no prisoners, this is one of those rare cars that runs even better than it looks, which is saying an awful lot. Call today!
