About “Green Monster II”

After wrecking my 70 chevelle, which was passed the point of restoring, I brought this 68 back to life in effort to redeem myself. When I found it it was completely gutless, and was sitting in a forest covered in webs, rats and spiders. It took 2 years to restore and has won 1st place in a 60's show class. Its also my daily driver, which takes me to work and school. I recently removed the old th350, originally out of the 70 malibu, and replaced it witha muncie m20, which is one of the best mods I have done to the car. Since the muncie install, it has seen some drag strip action, and 350 has been pulled out in favor of a warmed over 327 bored .040 over which I blew up drag racing, and now sports a .060 over 327 with aluminum heads and around 400+hp. I swapped the 10 bolt open rear for a 4.11 posi 12bolt. This is my baby and it will never leave my ownership Thank you for looking.

About “72 Stock Chevelle”

This 72 Chevelle is totally stock, numbers matching with only 85,000 miles. Currently needs slight bodywork on quarterpanel and repair of one interior seat. Other than that, it looks and runs pretty good.
