Chevrolet Chevelle 1965 Description

I built this car to be a blast to driven put a smile on my face. I am a mechanical engineer and have put my expertise into carefully choosing part selection, order of assembly and integration of parts to make it a really solid vehicle. It handles well both on the road and on the track and has competed in many Autocross events. This car turns heads and I am constantly getting smiles and "thumbs up" wherever I go. This car is a looker with its super low stance and bright red paint. I have replaced and upgraded nearly the entire car in the 5 years I owned this. I spent careful attention to things that are unseen but make a huge difference in handling. The steering, brakes, power train, suspension all contribute to the joy this car is to drive.
The car has participated in multiple Goodguys Autocross events and American Street Car Series weekends in CA. In 2013 we did the CA to Texas Hall Of Fame Road Tour ~3k miles round trip without issue. This car is RELIABLE. It has been a daily driver for several years.
This is a labor of love, but I recently had two babies and no longer have time to enjoy it.
