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 a '75 Monte Carlo, but couldn't come to an agreement on price so 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 alot of interior work and had some (alot) 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 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.

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

First thing to go was that ying-yang chrome and vinyl top
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...
