History
I bought this car in 2001 as a rusted relic for $1200 with the intention to just scuff it and shoot it and drive it... Yeah, that didn't happen!
1968 Chevrolet Chevelle/Malibu (Grecian Grean)

Modifications

Interior
My wife and I installed the entire interior ourselves. That's a lot of work!
I couldn't find good buckets at the time and I wanted the bench gone so I found some Chrysler 8 way electric black leather buckets that I built mounts for. I'm used to the cushy comfort so I guess they'll stay!
I went with a B&M Megashifter to get the shifter off the column and modified a center console between the seats for it.
Finally got all the wiring replaced so all the lights, dials, gauges light up and work as new
Exterior
Straightened, replaced, reworked and rebuilt with a very low amount of filler, almost none other than in new panel joined areas.
Got her straight and smooth and went with Grecian Green with a lot of deep clear with a touch of bronze flake in it
Audio
In-Car entertainment? you mean the gas pedal?
Lighting
All the lighting is original except for the tail lights. I went LED to be seen!
Exhaust
Aluminized Flowmaster headers with flowmaster dual to the bumper
Suspension
In the rear, UMI Performance Rear Control Arms and Sway Bar.
In the front, Global West tubular Upper Control Arms, Caprice classic 11" rotors disc brakes and '68 RS Camaro power brake master and booster.
Wheel and Tire
15" Rallys. The rear wheels are custom requested backspacing just enough to not hit the lower shock mount and not hit the inside fenders without modification to stuff the meatiest tire I could get under there!
