1968 Chevrolet Chevelle
This project started with an original rust free SS 396 car that underwent a complete pro-build from the ground up by Hi Speed Rod and Custom in Tucson Arizona. No expense was spared in the making of this ground pounding road hugging chevelle. Power is supplied by a GM crate 502 Ramjet rated at 502hp and 565 ft lbs of torque. These engines supply excellent power and a huge torque curve. Multiport fuel injection makes her run as smooth as any modern vehicle. Backed by a built 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission with Hughes Performance converter which makes it fun to drive around town or on the highway. Suspension was fully upgraded to tubular control arms and polyurethane bushings throughout. Air Ride Technologies Air Ride system is fully adjustable and provides an amazingly comfortable ride while making it feel like its handling on rails. Oversized sway bars add to its excellent drivability. Top of the line Baer Disc brakes with slotted rotors on all 4 corners. Power steering and power brakes. Currie 9" rear end with a 3.73 gear ratio and posi traction. Rolls on custom made Budnik 19" and 20" rims with 2 tone satin finish. Complete custom leather interior by Eddie Salcido. Every panel was hand made and formed to fit the body like a glove. Every interior panel including the floor and roof are layered with sound deadening mat and foam, making for an ultra-quiet and cool ride. Trunk is finished to match. Dashboard was modified and smoothed with a custom gauge panel using Stewart Warner "Maximum Performance" gauges. Comfort features include Vintage A/C and heat, power windows, tilt steering, electric doors, and an amazing sound system. Paint and bodywork on this car is second to none when it comes to quality. Laser straight with excellent body gaps and detail throughout. Burnt Orange Metallic paint custom mixed and spayed by Johnny Vegas. All brightwork has been finished in brushed nickel.
