1969 Chevelle Ready To Tear Up The Streets!
- Category: 1969 Chevelle
One of the latest creations to come out of the V8 Speed & Resto Shop is this slick 1969 Chevelle wearing SS stripes and trim but featuring a hopped up 454 under the hood. The car is rolling on Rocket Racing wheels and features other subtle modifications like new leather upholstery in the stock original pattern from OPGI, tunes by Antique Auto Radio that look stock but is fully Bluetooth capable with MP3, Vintage Air A/C, and a full MagnaFlow stainless exhaust. The engine is basically built to LS-6 454 specs and features a Holley Street Avenger 870 carburetor, Hooker headers, a TCI torque converter, built TH400 trans, and a 3.42:1 geared 12-bolt rear axle. The owner replaced the quarter panels many years ago and brought it to V8 Speed & Resto Shop for new cabin and trunk floors, other metalwork, bodywork and paint, interior, assembly, and tuning. Today it wears Chevrolet Carbon Flash Metallic Black paint and bright red SS stripes and will be featured at the 2014 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago, November 22 & 23.
