History The last of the L79 in the Chevelle was in 1968. This car is extremely rare especially with AC, gauges with Roller tachometer and 4 piston disc brakes. After many searches through different forums and Chevy sites it may be the only number matching L79 Ragtop equipped like mine. It is the only one also listed in the L79 Registry. Total frame off awaiting convertible top and interior installation. The original rebuilt engine has the original standard forged crankshaft, 30 over - 11 to 1 forged pistons,carburetor and distributor with double hump 2.02 heads, cast iron exhaust manifolds and 151 cam. The CF code 12 bolt 331 gear with posi rear end was completely gone through as was the M21 4 speed. Nut and bolt restoration and Murphy earned her name "If it can go wrong it will" but in the end she is gonna be great!
Exterior
All necessary body work was done over and the original blue was changed to black as was is the interior and convertible top.

Interior
Completely new Legendary Upholstery. Car was originally a bench seat but was changed over to correct 1968 bucket seats with console.
