About “chevzilla”

I purchased the car 20 years ago from original owner, for $250 It was originally purchased in Cumberland MD, in October 1966 from McIntyre Chevrolet for $2700.00 I have painted it about every shade of blue, now its Black with Silver flames. It was crushed about 4 years ago in a ice storm, On February 6, 2004 and took approximately 6 months to rebuild, By AL's Auto Body in Martinsburg WV.
Next on the agenda will be a Cowl Induction Hood, New Paint, New Exhaust.

About “'66 Sedan”
