History
I came across the car on Craigslist advertised for $1500. or B. It was an abandoned father & son project. After they bought 2 quarters and a complete trunk floor, and a complete new interior they realized they were way out of their knowledge and skills of welding and the car sat for 11 years in their garage. 6 months of doing a complete frame off restoration on the Chevelle working on and off I thought the day would never come when I finally finished. I took the Chevelle to tune & test day at the local track and on the first and only pass down the 1/4 mile, I was totally shocked with an 11.14 et 124 mph.
