Default Alex's 1970 Chevelle at the Roadster Shop

Here is a 1970 Chevelle we started a few months ago.
Alex came to us looking for a subtly refined Chevelle with a few twists, all the while staying pretty true to the original lines and appearance of the car.

He is going for a 585 HP ls3 w/top mount throttle body and T56 trans. We are planning on a couple of subtle details to bring out or enhance a few features of the existing details on the car. Paint scheme and wheels are still being decided.



Here is how the car came to us - Grandma fresh!

There was a fleeting moment where it almost seemed a shame to alter this one. It passed pretty quickly though.
