It does look nice but I didnt care for the big bumpers that that were required in the mid 70's the T/A's and Vettes plastic bumpers were way better looking...

About

I got this car in the autumn of 1983. I was actually trying to get my uncle's '75 Monte Carlo, but he wouldn't sell it to me because he said it had too many problems. so I kept looking. Mom found this car! Wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but if Mom thought it was cool, I HAD to have it! It needed a lot of interior work and had some (a lot) of rust bubbling out on the bottom of the doors and some on the front parts of the 1/4's. My Uncle Raymond helped me with the bodywork and sprayed the white stripes along the bottom. That was just the beginning of the project ahead of me. I spent the next 6 years learning how to work on cars by basically tearing this one apart and replacing or modifying every piece as I went. I was getting it close to what I wanted it to be when I had my girl-friend run out on me. I was stupid enough to go out looking for her at midnight on a Saturday. A drunk driver found his way into the passenger side, spinning me into oncoming traffic, then leaving the scene! My baby was done for. It was crushed like a can and bent like a banana. I had another '74 that was traded off for another car. I had a chance to buy a really nice '73 from a friend until he left the gas cap off and the car caught fire. I'd like to find another someday!

Specs

Bought it with a 350 that had a truck 4 bolt main block. That went bad on me to be replaced with a 307 from a '72 Nova, which was replaced with a 305 (temporarily) until I got another 350 built for it. The 305 was bad pretty much from the beginning. so I put new bearings in the 307 and put it back in waiting on the 350. Original rear-end was changed out because of a twisted or bent axel. Had Black-Jack headers, turbo mufflers, dual 2-1/2" exhaust out the rear

Factory Options

Power Steering
Standard Brakes (non-power)
No A/C
Bench Seat
Vinyl Top
Chrome Trim out the ying-yang

Mods

Dual Exhaust with Headers And Turbo Mufflers
Rear-end from a '77 Malibu Classic
'73 LeMans 1/4 windows with louvers
Gas shocks all around
B F Goodrich Radial T/A's
and just about every nut, bolt, & everything they held on!

I Sure Miss This Car!

It was totalled out in March of 1989 when I was looking for my girlfriend when she was out running around on me. I still blame her for losing my Chevelle. If it weren't for her...

If I still had my Chevelle

If I still had my Chevelle, I know it would be FANTASTIC by now! I had so many plans for this car on top of what I had already done to it. I had the interior from a '77 Buick...
