Upgrading/Restoring a 1968 Chevelle

Howdy!

Working on a 1968 Chevelle. Dark blue metallic, 454, TH400, 17" Torq Thrust IIs. Nice driver car.

Was a base model at some point in it's life, but was converted to a SS clone by a previous owner.

Initial Upgrades:

- Vintage Air (necessary in Texas )
- EFI
- Front Seats
- New dash with A/C
- Complete new wiring
- Front control arms/suspension

Thanks in advance for any help!

Howdy back,

Do you have a question or am I missing something?

Welcome to Team Chevelle.....

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Re: Upgrading/Restoring a 1968 Chevelle

Welcome to Team Chevelle!

Are the initial upgrades you listed things you want to do to your '68?

If that is the case - research each item within their individual forums, and then if you have any more questions; ask within that forum.
I found that when I use the search function; I end up reading a lot, but I also learn a lot more than what I was researching about!
