It's taken a long, long time to get this 69 into paint. But tomorrow she is going to the body shop to get the final body work and a brand new Flat Black paint job. I have owned this car since 1994. Sold her once and bought her back in 1996. Then she just sat for 10 more years, till 2004.

Found a real nice 1967 Chevelle for sale down in Edmonton for 26,000. Wife got all pissy saying we have a 1969 in the back yard, just get it fixed. I said O :thumbsup:

So in 2004 I found TeamChevelle. That's all it took to bring me up to day. It's been a lot of hard work, chasing around for parts, 2 different engine combos "355 then the 406", electrical, interior, etc..etc..Basically a complete rebuild to what I like in a Chevelle. BTW.. My 69 started life as a Green on Green 6 cycl c/w 2 speed glide. Don't know how but she had a 12 bolt with a 2.55 rear gear. My sig now displays her currant power train.

Anyways..I have taken a ton of pictures alone the way. But here at just a few of the build high lights.

In the beginning.

Here's a few pictures of were she is today. This car will be 75/25 strip/street.






All the work rebuilding her including the rear quarters, was done in a make shift garage/tent..lol


So like I said in my above post. She leaves for some body work and a Flat Black paint job tomorrow. Including a colour change to the inside of the doors and trunk.

Nice!!!
Wonderful to see another make it back to the streets.
Extra points should be given for "tent/garage" restoration in the great white north. I know my garage gets pretty cold and I am several latitudes lower.
Looking forward to more updates.
Btw, is it me or does it have a 68 grill in the first pic?

Correct. A 1968 grill plus a passenger front fender. lol


Replaced both fenders and grill with correct 69 pcs.

This turned out much better than she was.



Other than the hood, all sheet metal/grill/headlight pcs are all new "re-pops".

Still have alot of new never opened toys. As soon as she comes back from paint. I have a complete seal kit for the windows, hood and trunk.

whose fenders did you go with??
were you happy with them?? :)
Got the fenders from OPGI. From what I understand they all come from the same place. But I did hear of someone else has started building them as well. But I can't remember right now. If I find the info again I will post.

Here's a update to whats happening.
Pictures taken with my BlackBerry. No very good. But you can see whats going on.

No more Green in the doors or trunk lid. Thank goodness.


They fixed up my hood scoop. Sweet..


Not sure if I should get the panel between the rear tail lights and below the trunk lid painted a silver color to brake up the Flat Black paint job.
Any ideas?

Just went through all my seals from Softseal. Can't believe I bought this stuff from OPGI back in 2006. http://www.opgi.com/restoration-parts-catalog-chevelle.asp

Found a few things I even forgot about. Little stuff like the Pedal rubbers, Dome light, Sunvisor hinges, Gaskets for all the marker lights etc..etc..
6 years of sitting in the shed on hold for the paint and me being lazy. haha

Some of the other pcs came from http://www.amkproducts.com/

Went to look at the Chevelle today. Didn't like the way it turned out color wise and some marks in the paint. So we are going for a different color, not really sure which way to go.

I got to start taken my camera instead of my phone for pictures.





Maybe Yellow with Black Strips.
