Default The 69 Chevelle Project...Gearjammer

The goal of our 1969 Chevelle is to take a base model Malibu and add in an alchemic blend of carefully selected components to create a well packaged Pro Touring G-Machine with a slight hint of toxicity. Current plans are to utilize a Speed Tech Extreme Chassis, LS power, Tremec 5 or 6 speed, Forgeline Wheels and a square 315 BF Goodrich Rival tire setup. This will be a personal fill-in project that we work on in-between customer vehicles. The coming months should allow us to hammer out all of the final details and start the wheels turning.

Or '71 C10, Project G-TR, gained quite a bit of attention over the last couple of years, and now we are going to build off of that and take the Chevelle to a completely different level. Stay tuned as we dig in.

Here's another Chevelle we are working on for a customer. A '64 with an Art Morrison chassis and LS3. It's off to paint at the moment so we are starting in on a '38 Chevy Pickup for the same customer.

We've been nailing down some details to get the rendering done on the Chevelle. Wheel choice has been narrowed down to either Forgeline RB3C or CF3C. Looking at the Matte Bronze finish, but having a hard time deciding which style to go with. Here's a few pics that I "barrowed" from the Forgeline website for reference.

Tough choice, Mike. I like the finish so that's one area that can be checked off. For design, I'm partial to open patterns like a 5 or 6 spoke rim. I'd get the rendering done with both rims styles so you can stare at them for some time. Good luck!

I agree on color choice of bronze. I love both wheels...those 2 models are my favorite. But, I'm partial to the RB3C. Actually thinking about ordering me a set myself with the center lock conversion.

Quick update... We are getting close to posting up the rendering of the Chevelle project. Just a few very minor details left to make it complete.

A few weeks ago I made it out to MotorState Challenge and hung out with some of the RideTech guys and hitched a ride with Chris Smith in the 48 Camaro for the Dinner Cruise. I was also able to get a mostly used up set of 315 Rivals for mock up. (Thanks again Chris!)

We're hoping for some time this fall for an official start date and then we will be post regularly with progress updates.
