Oh, what’s this? Another Chevrolet. They seem to be everywhere, and if you find a Brand X, God help us if a Chevy guy got ahold of it and stuffed a Mouse Motor in it. Aren’t some things sacred? Yet here we are, showing you another Chevy. And how could we not? Chevrolet’s popularity has made them a permanent part of the fabric of America and, specifically, the old-car hobby. Which one best represents 1960s style and modern technology? This 1967 Chevelle on eBay is in the running.
Nineteen sixty-seven was the last year for the first-generation Chevelle, which began in 1964 and was given a restyle in 1966. While basically the same car, the 1967 Chevelle received some engineering improvements that made it a far better car, such as dual master cylinder, collapsible steering column, and the availability of General Motors’ Turbo-Hydramatic three-speed automatic transmission.
This resto-mod on eBay, however, has been upgraded every which way. Here’s some stats:
- Aluminum LS6 big-block with “upgraded” cam, FAST 92mm intake, UMI throttle body, 1¾-inch ceramic-coated long-tube headers, 3-inch stainless-steel crossover exhaust system, custom-built Superior radiator − all for 480 horsepower
- Fresh 4L60E four-speed automatic
- Suspension with fully adjustable compression and rebound coil-overs with custom-built shock towers and tubular upper and lower A-arms
- Quick-steer steering box
- Six-piston Wilwood brakes up front, four-piston out back
- Rocket Racing Booster wheels
- Three-stage paint
- Custom trim including shaved side and rear moldings, flush windshield, and satin-black trim
- Two-inch steel cowl hood with billet hinges and latching mechanism
- Custom leather and suede interior and fully-upholstered trunk
- All the usual comfort and convenience items of a modern car including climate control system and stereo
This auction is currently at $45,100 without having met reserve. That would be a great price for a stock SS 396 with the L34 350-horse motor but this one is a full-honking resto-mod that may belie the adage of “stock is worth more.”
