Scott Careys 64 Chevelle


1Owner/Builder: Scott Carey


When I bought the car I was looking for an all original car. This was as close as I could find; two owners and one repaint. My plans were to just leave it and drive it as is while I was building my other car. But as plans often change, one day I thought I would just do a motor swap… well the rest is history.
