Ok guys, if you have a wife or girlfriend that will need some convincing now would be the time to break out the candles, nice bottle of wine, soft music and maybe even some chocolate covered strawberries to seal the deal!

 

Up for auction is my Chip Foose inspired 1972 Chevelle convertible that took almost three years to complete and has only been driving less than 2500 miles since completion.

This is not a true ss car. but everything on it looks to be one. all the emblems,dash,grill, bumpers, gauges.

You will love my Baby! I would drive this car anywhere, it has place in every show, usually 1st or 2nd. I am not trading,the only reason it is for sale I am selling to buy our retirement home we are wanting, so some of the toys have to go.

DRIVETRAIN:

New small block 350 4 bolt main ZZ4 crate motor with 355 horsepower, custom drive shaft, holley carb.,Hooker super comp ceramic coated shorty headers, Flowmaster mufflers, full 2 1/2" exhaust with a pre-fabricated X pipe, 12 bolt posi with 3:42 gears (new seals & bearing), 200R4 overdrive transmission, 2200 overdrive transmission, 2200 street stall, four core aluminum radiator, electric cooling fan, trans cooler, K&N air filter, new high torque mini starter, new battery, new alternator, new everything!!!

BRAKES & SUSPENSION:

Quick ratio steering box, rebuilt front end with new ball joints, tie rods and bushings. Hotchkis front & rear sway baars, F-41 style boxed upper and lower control arms, lowering springs, all new front & rear brakes (slotted & cross drilled front rotors, brake master cylinder & booster, brake  lines, rear drums, shoes, hardware and more)

WHEELS & TIRES:

American Racing 17" Torque Thrust II polished wheels front and rear with Goodyear Eagle F1's 245/45/ZR17 in front & 275/40/ZR17 in rear.

BODY & PAINT:

Chip Foose inspired two tone paint job, silver and black with red pin stripping. New cowl hood with SS hood pin kit. The firewall has also been flattened relocating the heater box to the interior of the vehicle. The convertible top, hydraulic lines, motor and real glass have all been replaced. There are some very superficial scratches in the paint just from normal use, but not one single ding or dent.

OPTIONS:

Vintage air conditioning (ICE COLD), tilt steering column, center console with horse shoe shifter, SS Dash with gauges and 5500 redline tach., power disc brakes, power steering, power convertible top, AM/FM cassette player and more.

INTERIOR:

Almost the entire interior has been replaced. New carpet, new sun visors, new door panels, new rear panels, new arm rest pads, new rear view mirror, LEATHER front and rear seats (NOT VINYL) Grant steering wheel, new seatbelts and much more.

Original owners manual-Protecto plate and part of a build sheet.

The Chevelle runs and drives excellent with a very raw crisp sound from the exhaust upon acceleration, but yet very smooth and quite at idle. the Chevelle also turns on a dime with its lowered suspension 2" front and 3" back and heavy duty sway bars. I can go on and on about the car, but you will have to come and experience it yourself.

Look closely at the bottom of this car, the detail, the workmanship! This is not been spray painted for these pictures. Look at the fine detail of the door jams, smooth as new born baby butt.

The bad...light scuffs by the hood pins, but would buff out. The drivers window has real light scuffs, would not show up on pictures. The tach has stopped working, just have not had time to look into that.

The Chevelle will be available for inspection anytime. With so much done to the car I am certain that I have left something out, but I will assure you this car is very high quality driver with less than 2500 miles since it was completed. The Chevelle receives compliments every time she is out on the road or at the local car shows. I have researched the pricing of the 71-72 convertible Chevelles and found they range from about $20k-$40k+, but none that I have seen comes close to this beauty. Imagine finding a solid Chevelle convertible and then building it from the ground up such as this and see what kind of money you will spend. It will be much, much, much higher than my asking price.

I will answer all emails as quickly as possible and post the answers as I go. Make sure to have funds available prior to bidding and I reserve the right to end the auction early due to local listings. I will help you get car transported anyway I can, but all expenses and arrangements are buyers responsibility.

I am located within 15 minutes of downtown St. Louis, MO. I can pick you up from Lambert Airport with prior arrangements.

Don't miss out on this one.

Call me anytime at 618-530-3725

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK!!

Official USPS Muscle Cars stamps coming to a mailbox near you

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 13:59:00 EST

As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.

Chevy Corvette Stingray picks up another award, this time from Automobile

Mon, 18 Nov 2013 16:29:00 EST

The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has picked up another buff book accolade after capturing Road and Track's Performance Car of the Year award. The seventh-generation of America's sports car (sorry Viper, Mustang, et al.) has been named Automobile Magazine's Automobile of the Year.
Automobile's award to the Corvette over competitors is the mirror image of its rival Motor Trend, which named the Cadillac CTS its car of the year over the C7. The CTS was, according to the Automobile team, the closest contender to the mighty Stingray. Great news all around for General Motors it seems.
As for what pushed the Corvette past its distant, four-door cousin, Automobile commended its excellent, 6.2-liter V8 calling the car's performance "simply awesome" while also remarking that it is easier to drive fast than ever before thanks to steering and chassis tweaks. Following a theme set by other publications, there were also plaudits for the interior, of all things, with the buff book complimenting the car's ergonomics and material quality, while also praising the standard seats.

The 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan is for drivers who value performance above all else

Sat, 16 Feb 2013 14:00:00 EST

The car you see above is the 2014 Chevrolet SS, and it's important both because it is the first rear-wheel-drive performance sedan from Chevy in 17 years, and because it will be the nameplate the brand uses on NASCAR tracks all across the country starting this year.
Though it wears a name as American as baseball and apple pie, the machine was actually designed and built in Australia, sharing most of its parts with the brand-new VF-model Holden Commodore. That said, the basic chassis bits are shared with other Chevrolet models like the Camaro and Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle.
While Chevrolet is happy to sell a Malibu or Impala to anyone looking for a mainstream family sedan, but the SS is reserved for buyers interested first and foremost in performance. Most sedans sold these days are front-wheel drive, which is great for everyday driving and when the weather goes bad, but the SS is instead a rear-wheel-drive vehicle aimed at enthusiasts who love to drive and who prefer speed and performance above all else.
