1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS
Coupe Car for sale in Sealy, Texas 77474
Sealy, TX 77474
The Chevrolet Chevelle is one of the most iconic muscle cars around.
Chevrolet introduced the Chevelle in 1963 as a 1964 model. Though quite large by today's standards, it was classified as a midsize car. What wasn't midsize was the level of passion garnered from the very beginning, a passion that has continued for decades.
Classic Car Overview
VIN is 1D37H2R595864
This Chevelle SS 454 Tribute began life at the Arlington Texas plant as a Chevelle Malibu 350 with a front bench seat and column shift, and four wheel drum brakes. It was rebuilt a few years ago as a 454 SS Tribute. Unfortunately it went to auction a few times before I picked it up so I do not have any of the paperwork and specs from the rebuild. What I can tell you is that it is a daily driveable car, with recently rebuilt and upgraded brakes, new front factory ride height springs for a 454, radiator overflow tank, cherry bomb straight thru exhaust, and new shocks at all four corners. All this work was done in 2020, all parts from JEGS. Also recently converted to LED exterior lighting, headlights, turn signals, side marker lights, reverse and brake lights. Electronic flasher installed for flashers and turn signals for correct LED turn signal speed. Turn signal and hazard switch wiring and harness also replaced. With the rebuild, the car has a new paint job, new vinyl top, completely new rear end (upper adjustable/lower control arms, new differential for highway driving). Holley Quick Fuel four barrel carb, long tube headers, and three speed automatic transmission. Engine is very reliable, and can be daily started without pumping the gas. High lift cam for that race car idle. New interior: new headliner, door panels, seats and carpet. Custom red new 454 floor mats. Front tires are 1 inch taller than stock and rear tires 2 inches taller than stock. Both are mounted on 15" steel wheels. The increased tire height and rear end gears mean this car cruises at 2100rpm in 3d when going 70mph (confirmed with GPS speedometer app). Working factory AC with new compressor.
Since brakes have been rebuilt this year, stopping power is excellent. Reliable power brakes with with willwood four cylinder discs in front. With the new booster/proportioning valve combo (factory distribution block on the frame has been removed) you can slam on the brakes at highway speed, stop quickly with NO LOCK UP or pull to either side. We spent a lot of time getting the brakes right.
Even with the three speed TH400, this car is a rocket. It has been tested at over 100mph several times this year with no running or stability issues.
Just had installed JL audio sound system with new speakers fore and aft, JL amp, JL 12" sub and separate amp in trunk, all new wiring--sounds excellent. Also installed dynamat quiet ride floor kit, as well as trunk, ceiling and door adhesive sound vibration absoprtion sound deadening material and new carpet trunk mat.
Spare parts that come with the car include: original front springs, halogen headlamps, vinyl floor mats, 1972 style halogen tail and reverse lights, 1972 front cornering lights (replaced with clear 1971 version for styling preference), flowmaster stock style mufflers and GM factory chrome exhaust tips, and stock style wooden three spoke steering wheel. Currently added the faux suede wheel with SS horn by Grant. It is a smaller diameter and shallower offset than the wooden wheel, giving more space for taller drivers.
Vehicle is kept in a climate controlled garage and occasionally driven. This vehicle needs no work to run and drive and is ready to play. Clean Texas title in hand, in my name--you will deal directly with the owner (me). With imminently more restomod options for GM A bodies available, it is possible more upgrades will be done to the vehicle if not purchased soon, in which case price will be adjusted accordingly (up) and listing updated.
