Time to think about your dream big block muscle car. The one that has been restored to the level that wins you a trunk full of awards, and as you take them home, you have all the comforts you could ever dream of wanting. Now open your eyes to your true dream machine, this 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS.
It took four years to restore this coupe to this caliber... and the moment you lay eyes on it, you’ll know that’s true. There are black cars, and then there is this slippery shade of midnight that has been expertly applied to look like every surface is made of liquid. Oh yeah, there was a small fortune spent on paint alone, but there’s much more at work here. There has also been serious time with the sheetmetal. The body has been sanded and blocked professionally to provide the best canvas for this black. The result gives you some of the best uniform gaps ever seen, and a such an even shine that the sunlight can’t expose where one panel ends and another begins. And a on a body like this, you know they go the details right, too. The bumpers have the mirror-like quality of fresh chrome, and they hug the design lines with precision. All the correct SS components are there like the blacked-out grille, hood pins, correct badging, and cowl induction hood. But custom touches like the 18-inch black and chrome American Racing alloys instantly let the world know there’s more to this Chevelle than just a top-quality restoration.
Stepping inside is like discovering a time capsule. Everywhere you look is correct from 1972 – from the bucket seats, to the center console, to the door panels, to the carpet, to the dash. It’s all deep, dark, and fresh. That tells us no expense was spared making sure that anything that didn’t feel brand new was replaced with the correct material. Even the glass and rubber were replaced to give this coupe a true superior feeling. But more than just great materials, you’ll love how it’s a true muscle car. You slip behind the two-spoke SS steering wheel. It gives you a clear view to the desirable U14 gauge cluster that upgraded you for all round dials, including a large tach, speedo, and clock – all working perfectly. And of course, we all love the iconic horseshoe shifter. But as you look around this period-correct execution, you’re going to notice some subtle but desirable upgrades. For example, the radio looks like a correct knob-style AM/FM unit, but closer inspection will show it to be a more modern digital tuner with an aux input for your iPod. That goes great with the custom speaker system. Plus, the power windows mean you never have to leave the driver’s seat when you feel like rolling all the windows down and showing off the cool pillarless hardtop profile. And since the air conditioning is running modern R134a, you can do it all without breaking a sweat.
Those who know Chevelles are familiar with the 402 cubic-inch V8. Chevy would advertise it in other displacements, but this big block has the right home under the hood – it’s even date code correct to ’72. While the block is correct, the moment you lay eyes on the motor, the Chevy performance valve covers and tidy presentation let you know instantly that there has been a lot of money invested in adding go-fast goodies. It starts with an Avenger electronic fuel injection system, and added to this are features like a Holley intake, MSD ignition, polished aluminum pulleys w/serpentine belt drive, and headers that feed a X-pipe dual exhaust. But don’t just listen to this thunderous V8; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you will see the telltale signs of a recent built (less than 1,100 miles since completion) that has upgraded all the major suspension components. The 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission has a 1,200 hp input housing to handle all the extra power, but there’s also another side to this Chevelle. With the ability to cruise in overdrive comfort, the addition of power steering and a performance four-wheel disc brake package, and upgraded tubular A-arm suspension, this street-eating Chevelle is also a comfortable way to eat up the miles.
Complete with over $60k in build receipts and owner’s manual, this is a muscle car that makes no compromises for performance and comfort. That’s why it’s your dream machine that can be a reality...but only if you’re quick enough. Call now!!!
