A classic muscle car far from its humble factory beginnings.
Just one quick glance at this 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS hardtop, and you can tell that it is far from its humble factory beginnings. Garage Kept Motors is excited to offer the opportunity to own this one-of-a-kind ’69 Chevelle.
According to the original build sheet, this classic muscle car rolled off the assembly line in Freemont, California painted in Matador Red with an L34 396cui V8 with a 3-speed transmission. The original red is long gone and so is the factory performance.
This Chevelle’s curvaceous body still retains all-original GM steel, and it has been slathered in a custom two-tone paint job using Orange Metallic and Smoke Silver. Pinstriping adds a custom separation between the two colors. Nothing on the body has been shaved or deleted so the original-style mirrors, door handles, badging, drip rails, and marker lights all occupy their respective places. A set of custom multi-spoke three-piece wheels sit on all corners and come wrapped with Nexen rubber.
Putting out a generous 640-horsepower is a potent Rips Racing-built 468cui V8 engine topped with a Holley QuickFuel 4-barrel carburetor fed by twin intake snorkels. A Tremec TKO 5-speed manual transmission sends power down to the 3.73 12-bolt HD Posi rear end. Other mechanical highlights include Dart Pro-1 aluminum heads and an MSD ignition system. Stainless steel headers send gases down to a custom three-inch dual exhaust and exit via Walker mufflers. A Hotchkis suspension system on both the front and rear provides superb handling, and big Baer four-wheel power disc brakes easily bring the power to a stop. Concept One power steering allows for easy maneuvering.
Countless hours have been poured into this car's one-of-a-kind interior to make it both comfortable and functional. Black leather bucket seats fill the inside along with a long silver custom center console that spans from the front to the rear and houses cup holders, window switches, and a Pioneer stereo headunit. AutoMeter gauges are embedded in the dash behind the custom billet steering wheel.
If you're in the market for some one-of-a-kind classic muscle, then this may be right up your alley. It's ready to go cruise or be entered into any car show. In fact, it was entered into the Detroit Autorama national car show where it took home Best in Show.
