Hi Everyone, my name is Dennis and I live in Barrington Illinois, and I own the "Red" Fuller Chevelle. I see some old posts on the forum (2006) that another person named Dennis (AlasakanChevelle)? also owned the car previously. I purchased it from The LeMay Museum in Washington State about a year and a half ago, at an auction. It has 31, 400 miles on it and looks fantastic. It's obviously been well taken care of since it was completely restored sometime in the 80's as I was told, and it has held up beautifully. It has a short (bad ground I'm sure) in the emergency flashers, but otherwise looks and sounds great! If anyone knows how it ended up at the LeMay museum, I'd be very interested, I'd like to keep the chain of ownership current, and accurate.
Dennis

Hey Dennis, I just stumbled upon this thread doing some research after speaking to you. Good to hear from you and looking forward to seeing the car and meeting you in a couple of days. You will be right at home here as well as my shop where you will be amongst several other LS6's.

Hi Claude,
What I was told about the "Fuller Chevelle", is that Bob Fuller from Iowa, walked into his local Chevy dealer and ordered two new LS6 Chevelle's; One was a triple Black 4-speed Convertible that he rarely drove at all, and one was a red with black stripes and red interior automatic that he drag raced for a couple of years. I now own the red one, I bought it from the Lemay museum in Washington State, it has been completely restored by a previous owner. I don't claim to have all the details correct as some things get lost in translation, so any errors in my description are unintentional.

Thanks
Dennis

Thanks Rick, I look forward to meeting you, checking out all the cool cars, and getting your expert review / thoughts about my LS6!

Thank you Dennis for explaining. You have a one-of-a kind Chevelle! It's definitely a ''keeper'', hang on to it! (y)

Excellent news! When the weather breaks, and if we're ever allowed by our wonderful Governor to hold car shows / events, I'd love to meet you guys and talk cars!
