Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

I'm guessing it was taken off for paint prep and then put back on after it was painted. But, you never know.

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

Looks nice from the pics shown. As others say would like to see undershots.
Not usually a fan of the 'big wheel' but that setup looks as good as any.
If the bottom-side looks as good I do not see the price being too out of line.
If you bought the usual 'rolling body' you could easily have this kind of money invested by the time you get it to look like this.

You're allowed to remove VIN tags these days for restoration purposes. And since it's a 136 car, I guess so what if the rivets are wrong.

Now, it would be an issue if the seller was trying to sell a #'s matching SS.

If it's a frame off it's like a new car. Pretty tastefully done, kept her as the Malibu she is short of the dash strip and black tailpanel but still looks nice.

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

Are those modern larger diameter classic looking steel wheels? They look pretty cool.

Good grief, Stevie Wonder can tell that the tag was removed to do the firewall, and then re attached.

On a car like this, who gives a darn about rivets?

Re: Sharp '67 Resto Mod

Hey guys,
I came across this thread, and guess what? I'm the new owner of this car. It is everything the description said. Runs great with the ZZ4 350 crate engine. I bought it from a local classic car dealer, and was able to speak with the previous owner. He actually owned it twice, each time adding something to it, Flowmaster dual exhaust, FiTech electronic fuel injection, Redline tires with 17" Billet Rally style wheels. This is my first "classic" car (other than the '72 Nova I bought new) and having a fun time with it taking it to a couple of show-n-shine/cruises and weekly casual car gatherings. It certainly gets the looks and the thumbs up! The paint is beautiful, not a first place winner but very very nice. Interior looks new, all lights works, clock works. Some expressed concerns about the underside. I'm not a mechanic, but I had it put up on a lift during the "overnight, take it home an see if it fits in your garage" test drive the dealer allowed. Original frame, new shocks, looks good, "passed inspection". I've been told by several I met a car gatherings and the guys at the shop who installed the FiTech EFI that "if you want a good classic car, get one that xxxxx owned". (xxxxx is the previous owner who owned it twice). I feel lucky to have found this one as my first "classic" car.

Some Chevelles I've seen have the woodgrain strip on the dash. I like it blacked out as the restorer did. What is the black tailpanel you're refering to? Sorry if that's an elementary question, I'm kinda new at this classic car stuff.

The previous owner put those wheels and tires on it. 17" Rally style billet wheels. The "trim ring" is part of the wheel, not a separate part.
