You get one incredible classic that instantly becomes the center of attention wherever it goes! Mixing mesmerizing aesthetics with a timeless interior and a level of detail that requires multiple looks to fully comprehend, this sweet Chevelle is a carefully calculated compilation of top-notch performance from some of the biggest names in the business. And what's better: it's a fully sorted cruiser that was built, above all else, to be driven and enjoyed. Want an impressive ride that you can hop in, turn the key and sail some blacktop with? Your chariot has arrived!

ORANGE: THE COLOR OF ENTHUSIASM AND ENERGY

A solid cruiser that's benefitted from detailed, frame-up restoration, this sweet Chevelle might just be the ultimate resto-mod. Visually, that exclusive status is achieved through solid sheetmetal that's dressed in silky metallic pigment which casts exceptional Burnt Orange reflections. Naturally, that factory-correct two-stage includes traditional Tuxedo Black Rally Stripes. And it all adds up to one stunning Chevy coupe that rolls as an ardent champion for the best virtues of legendary American muscle: style, performance AND approachability!

The car's clean profile flames to life with a stainless-trimmed Super Sport grille, which floats a small “CHEVELLE” script between modern headlights, stylish parking lamps and a broad bumper that's skinned in fresh chrome. At the top of that grille, a pinned Cowl Induction Hood traces a dark-tint greenhouse, which is dressed in straight stainless frames and capped with polished drip rails. At the sides of the car, bright wheel trim joins traditional Super Sport fender badging to add a little pizzazz while chromed door handles perfectly complement factory mirrors. And out back, a second broad bumper centers a clean “SS” badge between a classy Chevelle emblem, polished exhaust tips and Corvette-style taillights.

CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE: THE ULTIMATE BIG BLOCK

Pop this classic's polished hood latch and you'll find 454 cubic inches of rowdy ZZ454 big block that, straight from GM Performance Parts, twists a solid 469 horsepower into 519 lb./ft. of effortless torque! All that glory begins with a tough iron block, which works well with a forged crank, forged rods, forged pistons and a hydraulic roller cam. A reusable filter element supplies breeze to spry Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection, which surfs a lightweight aluminum intake. That intake feeds hot oval-port heads, which flash lightweight aluminum castings under polished breathers, and chromed and custom-fabricated valve covers. The fires get lit by MSD HEI ignition, which sequences spark through loomed and sleeved Accel Super Stock Spiral Core plug wires. Coated long-tube headers dodge gray inner fenders. A polished pulley spins a polished water pump between a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor. An ornate, Chevrolet-branded closeout panel leads a polished AFCO radiator that's finished with a polished support, two electric puller fans and a snazzy Mr. Gasket ThermoCap. And on the visual end of the spectrum, billet Ringbrothers hood supports and trick brace bars perfectly complement cool details like a polished heater box, a liquid-filled fuel pressure gauge and a Burnt Orange wiper motor.

RESTO-MOD: THE CAR OF THE PEOPLE

Park this Chevy on a lift and you'll find solid floorpans that are poised to battle wet and dry roads alike. Behind the 454, a tough Tremec TKO500 5-speed, sourced directly from Silver Sport Transmissions, twists a dressed 12-bolt axle that's finished with a posi-traction differential. That pumpkin rides a factory-style 4-link rear-clip that's built with boxed control arms, a factory sway bar and AFCO coil-over-shocks. That clip pushes a factory-style independent front-half, which floats factory-style power steering amid RideTech coil-overs, RideTech StrongArms and a racing-spec RideTech sway bar. A polished brake booster joins a Wilwood master cylinder and a Wilwood proportioning valve to jolt red Wilwood calipers, which squeeze a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. Charred dinosaurs traverse aluminized pipes, which roar through an H-shaped crossover, MagnaFlow mufflers and electronic cutouts that are operated via key fob. And at the corners, chromed American Racing Torq Thrust IIs spin 235/45R18 Goodyear Eagle Sports in front of 265/45R18 Goodyear Eagle Sports.

CUSTOMIZED: THE WAY IT SHOULD BE

The timeless Black interior hiding behind this Chevelle's glossy doors is a correct factory affair that, 51 years after its debut, is still both stylish and cool. Tall bucket seats, over-bolstered for spirited driving, frame a factory console that aligns a custom cupholder behind a billet SST shifter. In front of that island, a monochromatic dash hangs clean Dakota Digital VHX telemetry over direct-fit audio and cool Vintage Air climate control. That seat, dash and console trifecta is completely framed by a tight headliner, fade-free side panels and clean carpet that's shaded by big Kenwood speakers. And the driver spins a handsome, wood-rimmed steering wheel around a tilting Ididit column.

The product of a detailed, ground-up build that would probably take a second mortgage to duplicate, this Chevy rolls on the right side of impressive. It's a highly desirable muscle car that's been carefully fitted with all the right stuff to be one seriously cool cruiser. Dreaming of the perfect blend of old school Motor City style and modern big block performance? You've found the ultimate classic!
