Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer a absolutely beautiful 1965 Chevrolet Chevelle SS show car. This car has undergone a no expenses spared frame off restoration with new parts front to back and thousands of hours worth of labor. The beautiful body has been completely stripped and smoothed to be professionally coated in 3 coats of color, 4 coats of tinted clear, and 2 coats of clear. The paint is Sikkens red which covers the bottom just as beautifully as the top. The door jambs, undercarriage, and under hood compartment have undergone the same amount of finishing as the exterior of the car. This attention to detail makes this Chevelle a true show piece. The car sits on a strengthened frame with Detroit Speed suspension featuring tubular A arms, coil over shocks, adjustable rear control arms, and large sway bars front and rear. It features 4 wheel disc brakes from Wilwood hiding behind Cragar SS wheels with 225/50/15 tires in front and massive 295/50/15 in rear. You need some good rubber to put down the power this machine puts out. Under the hood is a 447 CID custom built V8. The engine features an aluminum RHS aftermarket tall deck block, LS7 CNC ported hears from RHS, and a Callies 4.125 stroked steel crankshaft. With 4.165 bore and 4.125 stroke, the total cubes come to 447. It features JE forged pistons, Callies 6.300 long H beam connecting rods, Comp cams roller cam and lifters, T&D shaft style roller rockers, and polished aluminum valve covers. It runs with a Fast tune port fuel injection system and makes a very usable 680 HP. It breathes through Ceramic coated headers, and the sweetest looking set of stainless pipes youve ever seen. The transmission is a TCI 4L80E with new TCI torque converter and flywheel. The 12 bolt rear end has been narrowed and received all new parts including Eaton Posi third member, Strange 3.42 gears, and Strange axles. The interior is all new and features 10 way power front seats which are vented as well. The stereo is factory in appearance and has Ipod capability. AC is run through the factory vents, and instrumentation is analogue gauges from Dakota Digital. A custom console houses an original style shifter. The trunk is finished and features custom panels to conceal the battery, sub woofer, amp, and nitrous bottle. Every part of this build has been well thought out and well executed.
