With prices of documented collector cars locked in a seemingly endless climb, many enthusiasts are beginning to rethink the old purist's adage of 'original is always better'. And smart hobbyists who actually like driving their vintage hardware are beginning to buy slick, fully sorted resto-mods like this impressive Chevelle. After all, these classics were built to be seen and enjoyed on the open road, not garaged and dusted with an air compressor. And with 496 cubic inches of Chevrolet big block that's centered in proven Hotchkis suspension components and one of the most stylish bodies ever created, this incredible coupe will have you smiling and waving all day long! Looking for a cool road warrior that's as livable as it is lust worthy? With this awesome Chevy, you won't even give the word “original” a second thought!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Cared for by the same owner for close to 37 years, this Chevelle benefitted from a professional, body-off restoration. That work, performed roughly 1K miles ago by Sawyer, Michigan's PM Restorations, mixed solid sheetmetal with new door skins and a few quarter panel patches. Naturally, every seam on that metal was aligned to better-than-factory fit. That fit is highlighted by a glossy and dynamic coat of Metallic Black 2-stage. And today, it all adds up to one very impressive classic that's poised to show or cruise!

A quick look at our high-resolution photos reveals trim and ornamentation that remain mostly as the General specified. At the front of this coupe's long body, a familiar Super Sport grille hangs a prominent “SS427” emblem between halogen headlights and a polished bumper that's finished with small parking lamps. Behind that grille, a chrome-trimmed Super Sport hood leads the eye to fresh glass that's caged in straight frames, polished drip rails and capped wipers. At the sides of that hood, ornate fender emblems and quarter-mounted “Super Sport” scripts hint at the true nature of the big block's personality while tasteful door handles and a classy bowtie mirror perfectly complement slim wheel lips and correct Super Sport rockers. And out back, a monochromatic Super Sport valance hangs small taillights and a second “SS427” emblem between a power antenna and a second polished bumper that's finished with clear reverse lamps.

ENGINE

Check the body-matched engine bay and you'll find 496 cubic inches of buff Chevy big block that, according to its 3963512 casting number, began life as a formidable 427. At that top of the monochromatic mill, a polished air cleaner drops crisp wind in to an 850cfm Holley Double Pumper. That carb, sequenced to stainless fuel lines, a Russell pressure gauge and an Edelbrock regulator, surfs a coated intake manifold. At the back of that plane, a proven MSD distributor sequences spark between MSD 6AL ignition and loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Above those cables, 1970 cylinder heads seat polished breathers and polished covers on Morel lifters, Harland Sharp roller rockers, hardened valve seats and stainless Manley valves. Those components work well with a 4.310 bore, which pumps Manley rods and forged Ross pistons around a custom-grind Erson solid-lifter roller cam. At the front of the block, attractive March serpentine components spin an Edelbrock water pump between a bright alternator, modern power steering and a polished Edelbrock timing cover. At the front of those ancillaries, a polished Be Cool radiator makes excellent use of a two SPAL puller fans. Polished fluid reservoirs, a polished brake booster and a trick dipstick join quality ARP studs to detail serious performance with serious flash. And if 496 cubic inches of brightly-trimmed big block somehow fails to quench your thirst for power, simply engage the car's 300-shot Nitrous Oxide Systems fogger system.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

That impressive powertrain twists torque to a McLeod RST Street Twin clutch, which spins a tough Muncie 4-speed. That Muncie spins a familiar 12-bolt axle, which is finished with a requisite posi-traction differential and big, 3.73 gears. That drivetrain rolls on a fully rebuilt suspension that's augmented with beefy Hotchkis springs, thick Hotchkis sway bars, trick Hotchkis tie rods and tough Hotchkis control arms. The car's rebuilt power steering is augmented with four power-assisted discs that were supplied by The Right Stuff Detailing. Coated Hooker Super Comp headers dump spent gases in to large-diameter exhaust pipes, which pierce dual-chamber Flowmaster mufflers. At the corners, stainless-trimmed Rally Wheels spin red-trimmed 235/60R15 Turbo Tech G/T Radials. And this Chevelle's solid, undercoated floors are dotted with high quality details like a deep Milodon oil pan, a fresh fuel tank and a lightweight Trick Flow inspection cover.

INTERIOR

Pop this A-Body's solid doors and you'll find a crisp Black interior that's both attractive and timeless. In the middle of that cockpit, taut vinyl buckets wear deluxe seatbelts. In front of those seats, a classy dash hangs rebuilt telemetry between Stewart Warner accessory gauges, a big Stewart Warner tachometer and modern, direct-fit audio. At the base of that dash, fade-free carpet floats monochromatic floor mats around metal foot pedals and a factory console that's topped by a flashy Hurst shifter. In front of the driver, an ornate steering wheel spins speed drilled spokes around a tilting Ididit column. And behind the passengers, a billet Center High Mount Stop Lamp illuminates a carpeted trunk, which balances a dressed spare tire opposite a brilliant nitrous bottle.
