Cool Classics Chevrolet Chevelle

The Chevrolet Chevelle is one of the most iconic muscle cars around.

Cool Classics: Chevrolet Chevelle

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

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is pleased to offer this Stunning 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Restomod! The product of a fresh $200K restoration that transformed a sun-seeking Malibu into a shadow-dwelling Super Sport this slick Chevelle hardtop features a seamless and sinister appearance thats highlighted by a coat of jet-black paint. The cars high performance Mast Motorsports LSX 454 which twists stout 11.4 to 1 compression into 628 dyno-proven horsepower and a massive 585 lb./ft. of torque is a technological testament to the old rule: more cubic inches equals more horsepower! That killer small block sprints to its 6800 RPM redline thanks to a fresh Tremec Magnum 6-speed thats built to handle 700 lb./ft. of torque. Holding that world-class drivetrain off the pavement is a $21K Art Morrison boxed chassis which is seated between traditional mini tubs. At the front of that chassis tubular control arms hang adjustable Strange coil-overs and Detroit Speed power rack and pinion steering between an Art Morrison sway bar and tough C6 Corvette spindles. At the back of that chassis an Art Morrison chrome-moly 4-link is complete with two more Strange coil-overs and a second Art Morison sway bar. And at the corners of the car a $4K set of Boze Lateral G wheels spin sticky 275/35ZR18 front and 335/30ZR18 rear BF Goodrich G-Force T/As around locking lug nuts and LSX branded center caps. This stunning Chevelle looks absolutely predatory and will likely attract a TON of attention wherever it goes. And with 628 horsepower under its hood and a whole roster of top-notch equipment thats already spec-d and seamlessly bolted together its your one way ticket to instant gratification! In an era where your local Chevy dealer sells 580 horsepower pony cars and a whole roster of global companies engineer modern performance products for anything from a Civic to a Cadillac its safe to say the pro-touring movement is alive and well. With that in mind every so often we get a first class pro-tourer that instantly draws a crowd even in our showroom of exclusive one-of-a-kind muscle cars. This stunning Chevelle which couples a Mast Motorsports LSX small block with a beefy Tremec 6-speed and serialized Art Morrison chassis is one such stare magnet. Between its cool custom interior and chill-inducing color combination the car seems to have so much curb appeal that weve joked about selling tickets just to look at it! But in our effort to become your one-stop shop for the worlds coolest muscle cars we decided to offer it as an amazing classic that can be enjoyed on the road AND at the show.The product of a fresh $200K restoration that transformed a sun-seeking Malibu into a shadow-dwelling Super Sport this slick Chevy hardtop features a seamless and sinister appearance thats highlighted by a coat of jet-black paint. Now we all know it isnt easy to perfect a body thats going to be dipped in deep black pigment and that difficulty doubles when said black pigment is pretty much the ONLY thing prospective admirers have to focus on. But no worries here; just take one look down the sides of this Chevelles rock-solid fuselage and it becomes obvious that great care was taken to ensure each of its panels were aligned to better-than-factory fit. Step closer to those panels hypnotic finish and check out their straight and ripple-free surfaces which are a product of both rust-free sheetmetal and high quality prep work. Grab that sheetmetals well-adjusted pivot points and feel how smoothly they close to provide an excellent fit which is highlighted by precise gaps and glossy clearcoat sheen. Now step back and watch it all add up to one very well-done pro-tourer thats built to exacting specifications.Many enthusiasts view the 70 Chevelle as the pinnacle of both muscle car and classic Chevy design. Thats probably why this 72 is so intent on lying about its true age. At the front of its aphotic profile a familiar crossbar grille hangs smoked Fesler HIDs above a full body-matched bumper thats complete with heavily smoked marker lamps. Behind that grille a striking carbon fiber hood anchors a custom cowl panel below two Ringbrothers lanyards a small body-matched sport mirror and tinted glass thats framed in glossy color-keyed trim. At the sides of that hood modern Charcoal door handles combine with completely shaved fenders to add sensual sizzle to the cars liquid-smooth profile. And at the back of that profile a second body-matched bumper hangs smoked Dakota Digital LEDs beneath a bright carbon fiber deck lid.Few cars fit the muscle car description better than a Chevelle. So when it comes to building an A-Body thats as threatening as this Chevelle youd better have SERIOUS power on tap. Twisting stout 11.4 to 1 compression into 628 dyno-proven horsepower and a massive 585 lb./ft. of torque this coupes high performance Mast Motorsports LSX 454 is a technological testament to the old rule: more cubic inches equals more horsepower! Based on GMs stalwart iron block small block Masts brutal mill utilizes forged Callies internals Mahle pistons ARP fasteners and a custom Mast Motorsports cam to flat out whip pretty much anything with four wheels. A perfect amount of air and fuel is supplied by a mandatory GM throttle body thats cinched to a big reusable filter element. That air and fuel mixes in a proven Vortec intake and progresses to familiar LS3 cylinder heads that are built with Manley pushrods and LS3 hydraulic roller lifters. Immediately following combustion spent gases roar through 3-inch mandrel-bent pipes via black Jet-Hot coated Stainless Works headers. And a big Be Cool radiator two Spal puller fans a heavy duty crankcase breather and high quality Aeromotive fuel components ensure rocket-like acceleration. The modern small block rides in a clean body-matched engine bay that displays OEM-level attentiveness to both engineering and assembly. And many details like a smoothed firewall braided fluid lines orange LSX 454 branded valve covers and slick Fesler hood hardware dress up GMs traditionally conservative aesthetics.This is usually the point in a pro-tourer breakdown where passive optimism has turned into nail-biting enthusiasm. And unfortunately that excitement is sometimes dampened by statements like a stalwart TH400 transmission or a familiar 12-bolt rear end. Not so with this first class Chevelle! Its owners crystal clear vision of eventual perfection has culminated in a completely custom suspension thats chock full of high performance hardware and modern drivetrain components. The killer small block twists to its 6800 RPM redline thanks to a fresh Tremec Magnum 6-speed thats built to handle 700 lb./ft. of torque. Fitted with a scatter shield and sealed in a Quick Time bellhousing that stout T56 utilizes an ACT Xtreme twin-disc clutch and custom alloy driveshaft to spin a limited slip differential around a back-braced 9-inch rear end big 3.89 gears and Strange axles. Holding that world class drivetrain off the pavement is a $21K Art Morrison boxed chassis which is seated between traditional mini tubs. At the front of that chassis tubular control arms hang adjustable Strange coil-overs and Detroit Speed power rack and pinion steering between an Art Morrison sway bar and tough C6 Corvette spindles. At the back of that chassis an Art Morrison chrome-moly 4-link is complete with two more Strange coil-overs and a second Art Morison sway bar. Stops come courtesy of a body-matched Wilwood disc brake system that wraps 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers around 14-inch drilled and slotted rotors. At the center of the car custom mandrel-bent pipes swirl spent gases through a big X-shaped crossover to polished resonators and great sounding Dynomax mufflers. And at the corners of the car a $4K set of Boze Lateral G wheels spin sticky 275/35ZR18 front and 335/30ZR18 rear BF Goodrich G-Force T/As around locking lug nuts and LSX branded center caps. Aesthetically the bottom of this Chevelle is just as clean as its top featuring black floors and a full outfit of stainless hardware. And essentials like a new fuel tank braided brake lines and an in-tank high flow fuel pump round out a roster of top notch details.Open this Chevys solid-closing doors and take in a custom black interior that as an astute combination of serious hardware and modern aesthetics is the perfect place to spend high profile weekends. The first thing youll notice is four racing-style bucket seats: two of which are fitted with 5-point Impact Racing harnesses and all of which are so supportive theyll have no problem living 100 miles at a time. In front of those seats a custom dash hangs carbon fiber-styled inserts between custom American Autowire wiring and Auto Meter GM Performance Parts bowtie gauges. Below that dash a custom full-length console anchors a traditional Hurst shifter between a Wilwood brake proportioning valve and controls for a familiar Vintage Air climate system. At the base of that console new carpet anchors heavy duty floor mats beneath body-matched foot pedals. At the edge of those rugs custom side panels hang suede inserts behind small armrests and anodized door hardware. Above those panels a leather headliner frames a billet rearview mirror in front of a bright LED dome light. In front of the driver a stylish 4-spoke steering wheel spins a thick black rim around a tilting Flaming River steering column. Behind the passengers a fully finished trunk mixes stylish leather panels with billet Fesler hinges. And the cars builders made sure safety was a top priority by installing a full Art Morrison cage over a track-ready fire suppression system.Be sure to visit our main web page www.gatewayclassiccars.com where you can view 100+ pictures and a short video of this amazing car in action.
