Other than the headliner and the seat covers we did the interior ourselves...was fun, but a pain in the butt.

It all looks great, and I love the story. Happy for your family and especially your wife. If I'm forced to do my own interior - I hope it ends-up close to as nice as yours !

Yes. That is the original steering wheel she had, so we left it for now.

Steering wheel and she needs to pick out the stereo system.

Thank you for saving the car. Did not look too good when you came across it in 2017. Great job.

Not a Chevelle, but I wish I could find my old 69 Charger. I was able to track it down to Gonzales, Texas, but that was where the trail went cold.

Thanks all for the words.

Was a great project and the reveal went off as well as can be hoped!

Friend of ours caught a pretty good pic of the reveal...



It took her about 5 minutes before she realized it was her original car...

Re: A girl and her car: The Story of CRN 631

That is great, I misunderstood the beginning. I thought she was in on buying it back from the beginning.
