During the summer of 2000, I found this Chevelle being auctioned on Ebay. After calling the seller and
having lengthy conversations about the car, he agreed to sell it to me. During that time, I was completely
involved in restoring my 1972 Chevelle SS, and only bought this car for a future project. Visit www.72ChevelleSS.com
for the photo-documentation of the '72 SS project. After completing the restoration of the rolling chassis, I kind of hit
a brick wall on this project, as the body shell restoration hadn't begun. However, during February 2004, I located and
purchased another '71 Chevelle in Delaware that had already started its restoration. The exterior sheet metal was
replaced with Goodmark quarter panels, and the floors, doors, rockers & trunk all exhibit a CALIFORNIA state of
rust-free condition. Yes, it's a Van Nuys-built beauty! The body shell is being transferred to the already-completed
rolling chassis and will move the project along considerably. Fred Viens of Shepard's Brook Auto Body painted the car
on May 18-20, 2005. The body & chassis were reunited on November 19, 2005, and the assembly has started. My goal is
to drive the car to Chevelle-abration in Goodlettsville, Tennessee during early June 2006. I guess I'd better get busy!
This site is broken into different sections showing digital photos of the entire restoration on this Pro Touring style screamer!
Equipped with a 540 CID Big Block Chevy with MPFI, Richmond 6-speed ROD Transmission, Moser 12-Bolt rear axle
and Global West/Hotchkis suspension, this car will definitely be a handfull! So, sit back, relax, and click away!
