….that paint. It’s kind of like the factory’s Black Cherry, only with a lot more metallic in it to make it glow.
It’s deep and rich and sophisticated and so well done that you almost can’t resist running your fingers down its flanks just to see if it’s still wet.

The Chevelle’s look is timeless and even in 1972 it was one of the more attractive cars in the Chevrolet showroom, and things like the cowl induction hood and white SS stripes only add to it. Finish quality is quite good with only the most minor signs of use, and for a car that just passed its 42nd birthday, it looks to have received a new lease on life.
The later Chevelle’s single headlight front end is incredibly handsome, particularly with a blacked-out SS grille and matching emblems on the front fenders. The chrome and stainless trim was fully restored with the rest of the car, but amazingly, nothing was shaved or modified during the build.

In 1972, the horsepower wars were all but over, but this Chevelle acts like nothing changed. With a 454 cubic inch V8 that’s been liberally drenched in chrome and billet aluminum, it has the punch of the nastiest of the factory SS models and the style of a pure show car. Forget factory-correct tribute cars, this one goes for trophies at every opportunity, offering gorgeous body-colored inner fenders, a trick billet accessory drive, and beautiful dress-up parts that look right.


Edelbrock supplied a polished intake manifold and aluminum heads, so this is a lot more than just a dressed-up lump of iron and the long-tube headers feed a great-sounding dual exhaust system that doesn’t fight with the stereo to be heard. A TH400 3-speed automatic is the smart choice behind a big block and feeds a 12-bolt rear end that won’t complain, either. The suspension has been fortified with upgraded shocks, but surprisingly few modifications were required to fit those giant wheels: 20s in front and 22s in back with 255/35/20s and 285/30/22s, respectively.
