1972 Chevelle SS
This is my 1972 Chevelle SS (clone) with original 72,000 miles, I am 34 yrs old and this car has been my dream car for as long as i... Show more can remember. I finally decided to just buy one
This car was bought in Georgia back in 1990 by it's previous owner, and he and his son slowly restored it over the next 11 years. The car had very little rust, front floors were replaced, but otherwise it has the original trunk pans, quarters, doors, and fenders, everything was sandblasted, primed and painted with single stage victory red with the black racing stripes. The car was originally a air conditioning car, but everything was removed off the firewall for a cleaner look.(i hope to restore the air)
In 2001, the car was finished and was then driven very little over the next 6 years, less than 8,000 miles total. In August of 2008 I bought the car for $8500, They had over 16,000 in it's build, but needed to sell it for a Jeep project the were building.
After I had purchased it I bought a set of crager s/s wheels for it and a Pioneer stereo.
The interior is very nice, everything is black, rear seat is original, but both front seats were recovered, it has new carpet, headliner, dash, and other interior trim peices. All door handles, window cranks, steering wheel have all been replaced with billet aluminum accesories, also has a full set of autometer gauges and a monster tach.
