Default Robert's 1970 Chevelle at Roadster Shop

Having been whole, in pieces and now becoming whole again, it seems like a good time to introduce Robert's '70 Chevelle build.

The plan for this A-body is a clean, simple and refined '70 with T56/LS combo for reliable, enjoyable power and modern day handling and performance dynamics from our FAST TRACK Chevelle chassis.

The car as it arrived with us:

Looks like a really nice car. Love the color combo. As a 70 Malibu fan, I'll be watching this one.

Wish my name was Robert. Oh well, maybe next time. Of course this one needs to be subscribed to. How many can we do that to?

Famous last words.... We thought it was going to be a real nice car as well.

This is what came back from the acid dipper.



At what point during this incredible metal work do you think this guy thought to himself..."Yup, I think its ready for paint!" It is amazing how something that looked as good as the original car, could end up like this. We looked the car over pretty well before disassembly and had no idea of what laid underneath.



What was left of the wheel opening and outer wheel house.


There wasn't a wave, a bubble, a sand scratch, a shrinkage mark... nothing anywhere in this quarter. the trim fit nicely all around the convertible top... no signs of what was underneath. Oh well, nothing that an entire parts catalog can't fix!
