One of the best restored Chevelles I've ever seen!

Wow, this one is over restored! They weren't this glossy when new. This is a show car only driven on and off the trailer. Top award winner at Chevelle Nationals and Chevy Vettefest. Same owner 39 years, 1980-2019. I tracked down the restorer and we talked a few times. He took this car down to bare. He said every component came apart as far as it could. I certainly was even more impressed after talking with him. This is a genuine SS, verified in the vin in 1968.

EXTERIOR: Factory Matador red car, code R. It ss better than it left the factory. The body is absolutely pristine. All the gaps are precise, the body is laser beam straight. I could not find an issue, there are no problem areas. The paint is polished like glass. The jambs are slick. The doors and trunk shut like new. It has the optional white stripe. Almost all of the exterior trim is New Old Stock. Everything from the grill to the taillights look new. The glass is all crystal clear and aligned properly. The vinyl top is excellent. It has correct antenna and T-3 headlights. All weather strips and window seals have been replaced. The Wide Oval red line tires still have nubs on the tread. The wheels are restored and have mint poverty caps.

INTERIOR: From carpet to headliner it is immaculate. You can even look up behind the dash and it looks like new. The wiring harness was replaced. Down on the floor it has new carpet and completely restored GM seat belts. The center console is all new and has the correct Muncie shifter sticking out of it. The seats have been recushioned and upholstered. The plastic trim is new. The dash sparkles- all the chrome bezels, heater controls, vents and knobs are restored or new. It has a factory "roll" tachometer and a factory gauge cluster. Upgraded quartz movement in in the clock. AM-FM stereo with a very rare multiplex system. Even more rare it actually works. Mint deluxe steering wheel. The door panels, armrest, window cranks have all been replaced. The headliner is tight as a drum. All the interior lights work.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Wow, it looks like it has never been started. Again, over restored. Everything is glossy. The correct 396 with optional 350 hp motor was completely rebuilt. Stock components including valve covers, manifold, air cleaner etc. It features air conditioning, power steering and brakes. Every component is restored like new!

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Pristine metal. The spatter paint was sprayed from a gun and looks like the factory did it. The jams and trunk lid are slick. New wiring, weatherstrip, seat insulation, decals, mat and latch. 5th matching redline on restored rim. Restored jack assembly too.

UNDERSIDE: OMG, look at the pictures. It is just as polished and glossy underneath as it is on top. The immaculate metal floors are high gloss red paint. The chassis is high gloss black. Every piece looks new from the cotter pins to the frame. The body was removed from the frame and the chassis was completely disassembled. Every single steering and suspension component was replaced or rebuilt. The factory type exhaust system was completely replaced. The fuel system is new including the tank, straps, sending unit and stainless lines. The drum brake system was completely rebuilt. New stainless lines, all new e-brake assembly. Looking up the motor it is immaculate, the starter is restored. The Muncie 4-speed is restored. The linkage, clutch and all related parts were replaced. The u-joints were replaced, driveshaft was restored. The original 12 bolt rear has 3.07 posi gears.

This is literally one of the best restored Chevelles I've ever seen. It looks and feels like a new 1968 Chevelle!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
