This Month's Featured Ride - February 2010

Gary's 1970 Chevelle

Click here for the Ride of the Month Archives

Gary bought the car on April 29, 2006 in the Bronx. It is a build sheet car. Numbers non matching.

As best as he can tell it's a 1971 454 block, with 1967 427 corvette heads. He bought it missing the heater, power steering and power brakes. His next project will be to replace the rug and console.

Gary beleives that his Chevelle may have been a drag car years ago. The wiring harness's had to be changed which he did in 2006. The engine he feels is a de-stroked 454. The engine is internally balanced which he's been told GM never built an internally balanced 454 from the factory. Gary plans on bringing the car back to factory configuration. It was originally a 396- 350 hp car.
