A 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle hardtop is an icon of American muscle, and now this one has been brought into the modern age with fuel-injected 7.4-liter Vortec V8 power. And everything from the sleek paint to the overdrive transmission tells you this is a quality build that's about more than just the big block power.
The paint sets the tone nicely for this coupe. It's a true muscle machine, and so it's always going to look right in red. But this is a restomod, and so it gets a deeper tone and a modern shine. It announces to the world it's something just a bit different. That's the real theme of this coupe. You get all your favorite classic pieces, like the pillarless hardtop profile, shining chrome bumpers, and flying buttress roof. There are even nice SS-style upgrades like the badging and ribbed rockers. But keen eyes will also pick up on the extra power bulge of the hood and extra wide exhaust tips. They are hints that there was extra thought and work under the skin of this Chevy.
Inside, they invested nicely inside to make sure it is dark, clean, and ready to show off. You get plenty of great vintage details, like the center console and dual-spoke sports steering wheel. Even the clock works! This one has been upgraded subtly for some extra comfort, like the tilt steering column. There are even provisions for air conditioning (likely needs a charge to blow ideally cold.) And just like the exterior, you get a few hints at the upgrade in the engine bay with the column-mounted tach and the extra position on the floor shifter. It even now fires up with the push-button ignition like a race car.
Under the hood is the unmistakable look of something special. You have the obvious look of big block power and the Vortec callout lets everyone know it's a modern one. The 7.4-liter motor gives you the legendary 454 cubic-inch displacement, and the color-matched intake really draws eyes to the modern fuel-injected setup. In fact, people will notice the full block and valve covers are also in that attractive deeper red. And everything from the upgraded oil pan to the aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans tell you they made sure this upgrade was built to run. The big V8 fires up with a terrific tune as Hooker long tube headers add power while contributing to the rumble of the newer dual exhaust with performance X-pipe construction. But having a fuel-injected motor is not just about power, it's about getting more practicality, too. The upgraded 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission fits this versatile package, too. It's a stout unit that also gives you overdrive comfort. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and wide BF Goodrich T/A tires.
This is a fresh build with sleek looks and a ton of power. So you know you don't want this Chevelle restomod to end up in someone else's garage. Call today!!!
