1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Sport Coupe
Up for your consideration is my ’67 Chevelle. It should be appreciated that I do not need to sell this car. Likewise, I am not delusional to believe that I will come even close to recapturing the money that has been invested in this car over the last 10 years (folders of receipts). The car is being auctioned for really only one reason – I have lost interest and do not drive it enough. The time has come for someone else to enjoy this wonderful car. The reserve is set fairly and if it is not met – I will happily keep the car.
I would classify the car as a nice and reliable ‘driver’. If you are looking for a trailer queen or Concours restoration, this is not the car for you. Similarly, if you are looking for an authentic, original SS, keep looking, as this is not the car for you. What we have here is a very nice 50 year-old136 car. Car has current (9/2017) PA inspection – This in of and by itself provides a wealth of information regarding the car’s operating condition (I don’t have a ‘guy’ that just slaps a sticker on). I never did get around to putting the antique tags on.
If you are looking for a ’67 Chevelle with a 396, 4-speed and 12 bolt rear, keep reading. Car has been garage kept under cover over the last 10 years. Car has been a fair weather car driven sparingly April/May through November. Car has not seen a drop of rain in the last 10 years.
Car was painted just over 10 years ago. It retains its original Bolero Red factory color. The paint as you can see from the images looks and shines nicely. That being said, there are imperfections, minor chips and 1 minor ‘ding’ that is located on driver’s side front fender (it is small). Most of these imperfections are difficult to capture on camera even with the digital SLR I used to take the images. There is no rust. To the best of my knowledge, the car retains its original sheet metal (obvious exception is the hood). The hood is an authentic SS hood. Hood springs have been replaced. New SS grill. Front marker/signal light assemblies have been replaced. Reverse light assemblies replaced. Reverse lights and all blinkers as well as front lights, tail lights, & high beams work! Bumpers are solid and chrome shines nicely. Exterior 396 and SS badges in place.
All machine shop work was performed by Jeff and his crew at DLK Auto Parts & Performance (http://www.dlkautoparts.com/) in Russellton including but not limited to magnafluxing and balancing of entire rotating assembly.
My best guess is that I have put ~1,000 miles on the engine/transmission since built
