Default Project Chevillain 1967 Chevelle

I guess I have made it far enough to start a build thread. This is our 67 Chevelle I picked up in Aug 2009 for $500.00. No motor or trans and it had been sitting for 15 years in northern California under a oak tree.

Frame striped and painted. 10 bolt has been replaced by a 12 bolt.

Made brackets to put the body on it's side.

Sanded Acid Etched and painted bottom.

Engine 1974 454 never been opened.
After machine work. Eagle rotating assembly, KB pistons 10.5-1, Aluminum heads, roller rockers.

Moved from Cali back to Bend Oregon.
Bastard car. Floor was perfect but roof and quarter panels shot.

Roof and Quarters replaced.

Building TH400 that will handle the HP

Painted Brake Calipers


Engine in painted firewall.

Door painted but it is up side down.

Currently working on body. Shaved mirrors, handles drip rail and taillight extensions.

Nice work. It isn't too bad considering the tree thing. Its funny, the one I have has cherry floors but bad filler, roof and quarters too.
