1972 Chevrolet Chevelle
Coupe Car for sale by Hendrick Performance in Charlotte, North Carolina 28262
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
Making close to 1,000 horsepower and 2,000 lb.-ft of torque this Duramax diesel-powered Chevelle (it is titled as a 1972 model - 1970 exterior parts) puts gasoline big-blocks to shame. Despite such staggering figures, the engine combo is surprisingly simple. Other than a set of Carrillo steel rods, the short block is completely stock. The only other major modifications are a set of CNC-ported factory 32-valve heads, upgraded twin turbos cranked to 30 psi, and a bigger solid-roller cam. With the nitrous engaged the horsepower numbers jump to an eye-popping 1,200 horsepower! The Chevelle even knocks down 32 mpg! To make space for the drive accessories, radiator, intercooler, A/C condenser and turbo piping the engine had to be moved back 8 inches from the stock location. This work, along with custom brackets and pulleys compress this monstrous power plant under the stock GM hood. The factory Duramax injection pumps are driven off the crank while a second pump was added to help pressurize the fuel rails to meet the increased fuel demands of the setup. Bassani Exhaust fabricated a one-off custom exhaust system for the Chevelle which makes all the right sounds. The cutting-edge technology does not stop at the engine. A modernized Art Morrison front clip, complete with C5 Corvette aluminum suspension components was infused into the Chevelle and Fast Eddie’s of Orange, California installed the custom four-link rear set up. Putting the power to the pavement is a narrowed Ford 9” rearend and big tubs to accommodate the gargantuan 22” wide Mickey Thompson radial tires. An extensive equipment list below details the incredible features of this professionally built custom. Numbers printed on paper is one thing, and the visceral sensation of driving a diesel-powered hot rod is another thing entirely. The Chevelle diesel experience is very different from anything else out there. Even without any mufflers the engine is very quiet and sounds just like a stock Chevy truck at idle. When you get on the gas the engine quiets down further as it builds immense boost. The Duramax only turns 4,200 rpms, so the power hits REAL hard. Once you feel the thrust a diesel makes, you’ll never go back to gas! With a driving experience unlike any other, this incredible custom Chevelle proves there is no disputing that diesels aren’t just for trucks anymore!
