Demo 'Velle

Went tot the demo derby over the Labor Day weekend. Low and behold a 1969 Chevelle was being used. Was a 4 door, did win popular vote but not the derby.

Re: Demo 'Velle

That was a Sport Sedan, that's still an SS isn't it ? Hope that one was all rusted to ____ before they cut it up.

Re: Demo 'Velle

Years ago, I scored my grille and SS hood off demo derby cars at Saugus Speedway, before they actually hit the track.

Custom painters don't screw up! They just add more graphics.

Thankfully, no it's not an SS396.

Re: Demo 'Velle

Seen 2 Chevelle's in my home town demo derby years ago. A very straight 72 too. What a shame.

Re: Demo 'Velle

There was a 66 or 67 Chevelle at Wall Stadium,the local stock car track.They were running it in the street stock division about 10 years ago.I stopped in the pits after the race and told the guys running it about Team Chevelle and this website, but all they were interested in was if anyone had any left over sheet metal they could get.That thing was all beat to hell.

Re: Demo 'Velle

I had a 69 sport sedan.

Bench seat.

The best thing was the open side windows all the way down the sides.

If I can ever buy another one...car was a ton of fun.
