1969 Chevy Chevelle (LS1 Resto-Mod): Introduced on the 26th of September 1963, the Chevelle had a short run: 1964-1977. This model was available in many different varieties — including everything from 2-door sports coupes to 4-door wagons. The Chevelle would also offer the largest range of trim options from basic to swanky packages from GM. Chevrolet positioned the Chevelle to bridge the gap between the Impala and Chevy II/Nova. Additionally, the Chevelle was also made to compete with the Ford Fairlane. It was built on the A-body platform — same as the Pontiac Tempest, Buick Skylark, and Oldsmobile Cutlass. When it was first released in 1964, it had a wheelbase that measured 115”, the same as the 1955-1957 Chevy. 1968 ushered in a total redesign for the Chevelle and the other GM A-bodies. This cut the wheelbase and brought in a long hood, short deck, and tapered fenders — making it an immensely popular body style. 1969 reduced the SS back to an engine package. The 396 cubic inch, 375hp engine option returned, the vent window was removed, and a chrome bar stretched over the grille. Taillights got bigger and more flush, and GM lent some of the Corvette engines into the Chevelle frame rails.
Corvette engines in Chevelle bodies has been a popular concept for 50 years. But the marriage of classic styling with modern performance is what every Chevy lover is after and what this exceptional Pro-Tourer delivers. The list of highlights is long so we’ll hit all the high notes here and answer any further questions you need answered. What obviously sets this Chevelle apart from the crowd is the addition of the 2002 Corvette Z06 engine and transmission. The donor car had only 20k miles and has seen an additional 37k miles since being transplanted. Everything works on the Chevelle, it has zero leaks, and it is ready to drive any distance upon purchase. So before you attempt to build this vehicles twin for twice our asking price, this beauty deserves a good inspection.
