We built this 1967 Chevelle in early 2018 in a quick 65 days. Our guys pulled through and got this project done for a small debut at the Creepers fun run, 2018.
Howard spent no fewer than 140 hours just under the hood of this Chevelle in fabrication work. This beautifully built engine cover hides a 6.0 LS with a mild cam from Texas Speed.
A lot of little details made the outside of this ride stand out among the crowd. first we cut the drip rails off and shaved the door handles. We made some smooth custom built push buttons to get a flush finish that works easily. We smoothed and tucked the factory bumpers in as tight as we could and paint matched them to flow with the body. Painting this car Ford Ultra White makes it so bright in the sunlight it gets hard to look at against the contrasting black grill and tail panel. But we didn’t cut any corners in making this car laser straight with wetsanding and buffing to perfection.
We spared no expense when it came to suspension and ride quality. This Accuair e-level kit is very user friendly. Every corner has its own ride height sensor, ensuring it stays level going down the road.
We finished the interior out with a custom built sheet metal console with dual vents for our Vintage Air conditioning unit. we threw a set of Dakota Digital gauges in it and sent it to upholstery.
Jamie Crook at Finish Line Interiors killed it on this job and turned it out in two nerve wracking weeks. we all sat down and drew up the lines for the seats and he put it into stitching. He finished out the trunk super clean and left the compressors and tank exposed for us.
Colyn Crighton at Glasslife Atlanta hooked us up with a super slick coat of Ceramic paint protection. This keeps our paint looking its best, year round. Easy to maintain and prevents scratches scuffs.
