----------

In a world full of cobbled resto-mods and numbers-matching Super Sports, it's always nice to see a Chevelle that's a bit different. And it takes some serious skill to create a tribute car that's both sinister and classy without gratuitous use of eyeball-searing hues and overly aggressive rolling stock. This awesome coupe has been rotisserie restored, fitted with an overbored big block and decked in tough black on black aesthetics. And here's the best part: instead of being a rare showpiece that requires tedious dedication to moribund competition and garage queen gimmicks, it's a fully sorted road rocket that's ready to stage your debut as a boulevard super star. If you're searching for some old school Detroit metal that wraps great performance in classic good looks, you're looking at your next muscle car!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Fresh out of a professional rotisserie restoration, this Chevy's solid body is an excellent combination of original and replacement panels. That restoration began with a fully stripped fuselage, which was supplemented with fresh quarters, new floorpans and fresh trunk pans. With those pieces welded up and tightly fitted, a glossy coat of Tuxedo Black 2-stage was worked into a wet-look shine. And Super Sport-specific trim, a blacked-out grille, a blacked-out valance, a silver bumper filler, a louvered hood, ribbed rocker guards and bright ornamentation, was installed during the body's meticulous finishing.

ENGINE

Peer in to the car's Satin Black engine bay and you'll find 396 cubic inches of date-correct big block that's been bored .040 over and professionally rebuilt by Larry's Automotive of Danielson, Connecticut. Oxygen and dinosaurs enter the combustion chambers through a “TURBO-JET” branded air cleaner, tagged stainless fluid lines and a proven Rochester carburetor. Below that carburetor, a cast iron intake feeds resurfaced heads, which wear painted and decaled valve covers. Below those valve covers, solid lifters bump a solid lifter cam. At the back of that cam, a rebuilt points distributor shoots spark through eight Packard TV R Suppression cables. Below those cables, cast iron exhaust manifolds maintain performance while creating deep, lust worthy acoustics. And in front of those manifolds, a beefy radiator pipes coolant through GM-branded hoses and reproduction tower clamps.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

That storied mill twists torque to a proven Muncie 4-speed, which is equipped with a reliable Hurst shifter linkage. That Muncie is hooked to a correct 12-bolt rear end, which spins a posi-traction differential around correct 3.31 gears. Under that drivetrain, a double A-arm front and rear coil suspension employs dual sway bars and new bushings. Stops are provided by standard drum brakes. The aforementioned manifolds flow in to aluminized pipes, which talk through great sounding turbo mufflers. And, at the corners of the car, 14-inch steelies spin F70-14 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sport redlines around stainless, bowtie-branded center caps.

INTERIOR

This Chevelle's careful restoration included the installation of a fresh vinyl interior. Super Sport trim abounds, with rebuilt bucket seats framing a stainless-trimmed console. That console centers an ornate clock between Jet Black carpet and a simple chrome shifter. An old school AM radio is present and accounted for. In front of the driver, a “CHEVELLE” branded steering wheel spins around optional Special Instrumentation. And a fully restored trunk sandwiches a correct jack and full-size spare tire between a new mat and fresh decklid decals.
