Chevrolet Chevelle 1968 Description

You can call this one the pro touring king, the ultimate restomod, or just a show-stopping classic. After all, a custom-built 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS that has everything from a 450 hp big block V8 to a back up camera is a very interesting classic that defies a singular definition but draws in everyone at every stoplight. Let's start with that award-worthy paint. It might look like a glossy black when there's no light on it, but when you take this out into the sunshine, you see the deep richness of black cherry. The complete professional paintwork and precision panels give the coupe the kind of luster that looks like candy apple red went over to the dark side... and that's the exact right attitude for this street-eating custom build. But it's not all midnight with this classic. There's only about 1,000 miles on this restoration, and that's why the new chrome still has a sparkle that not even GM could deliver from the factory. The large brightwork on the grille, pointed front bumper, smooth rear bumper, and all that complete trim make sure people know you're at the car show to win awards. Of course, one part of the brightwork no one will forget to check out are those Coys alloy wheels with an aggressively staggered 18-inches up front and 20-inches in the rear.With an exterior this cool, you better believe there was plenty invested in making the interior just as custom. The newly upholstered seats take the idea of the exterior black and red color mixture and separate it out for a cool two-tone appearance. In between the front buckets is a center console with the iconic horseshoe shifter, but you instantly notice this one is quite a bit different than factory. After all, therewas no such thing an AM/FM/CD/DVD stereo system in 1968, and this one even includes Bluetooth hookup and houses a backup camera. Other great features include power windows, power locks, and an air conditioner that runs modern R-134a for easy servicing. But as much as this big Chevy is comfortable for all the passengers, it's a driver's car at heart. You know it from the moment you grab the three-spoke black and chrome steering wheel and look at the custom panel with a full set of AutoMeter gauges. Open the hood check out the big block. The 427 cubic-inch crate motor barely has over 1,000 miles on it, and its proven through tidy presentation, including the shiny pulleys that contrast perfectly with the big dark Chevy performance valve coves. But beyond this award-ready looks is some serious substance to back up the performance appearance. This V8 is rated at around 450 horsepower thanks to go-fast upgrades that include a four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise intake, and long tube headers. But as much as the performance Magnaflow dual exhaust announces to the world that this is one hot performance machine, it stays cool even traffic thanks to a new aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. This custom build goes way beyond just a great motor. Take a look at the undercarriage photos to appreciate the total investment and work that has gone into this coupe. There you will spot elements like the totally new front suspension with A-arms and a performance sway bar. The rear now has adjustable coilovers with performance control arms and sway bar. It's the kind of performance that's ready for dominating the streets or taking a long trip. This is attitude is backed up by a four-speed overdrive automatic transmission, power steering, and a versatile 3.73 rear end with Positraction. There's even a Wilwood four-wheel disc brake system with Nitto ZR performance tires at every corner for the best in control.This is the classic American car that leaves you wanting for nothing at a price for less than you could build it yourself. There's even title documentation for the car show judges. So the only question is will you be quick enough to grab this custom build before some else snatches it? Call today!!!
