The Harrell shop probably offered the hood as an option and they would purchase it from A&A and add it per customer request.

I believe another 68 Harrell Chevelle has been found and is being restored.

here is a 68 magazine picture

i found the other one on the Dick Harrell site

http://forum.dickharrell.com/showthread.php?t=1003&highlight=chevelle

there are a lot of cool pictures on there

one of the guys that worked there said he thinks there were 5 1968 427 Harrell Chevlles and no 1969s

DH was a real 427 Chevelle Pioneer. He had to have had one of the first if not the first.

pic is the 1964 427 Chevelle (427 Z11 "W" engine from his 1963 Z11 Impala race car)

In general, a un-restored original car in top condition is worth more then a restored car but the restored car will still have high value if documentation is in order.

A rusty un-restored car may be worth less then a restored car.

Car value can be a combination of condition, history, documentation, options, production numbers, popularity, and other factors.

Well, I think this is a worthy bump. The KK Harrell car has been found.

Our best educated guess is that it was the demo model sent down to Courtesy Chevrolet as it sat there from February 19,1968 thru at least August of the same year. The "Grand Opening" ad ran 3 days after the car arrived at Courtesy and would have been the only Harrell car on site. We've made Val and Dale aware of the discovery. The car came to MN in the early 90's as a roller and was restored back to an SS 396 Chevelle. The drivetrain has been replaced and the hood is MIA.

A very special thanks goes to Dan P and Bill Z for their dedication to research and discovering these Courtesy Harrell cars.

It appears this is the 3rd '68 Harrell Chevelle accounted for joining Kevin's Red car and Roger's Green one. It's unclear at this time whether it was an L88 or had a multi-carb setup.

There's a high probability that the car spent some time in Goodyear, AZ and was owned by someone or multiple people who were at Luke Air Force Base. We'd love to hear from anyone down that way that may remember the car.
