1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Wagon Big BlockWhat you're looking at is opportunity. This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle wagon is your chance to have one classic that can carry the family and cargo in one vintage vehicle. And since this wagon has been upgraded with serious big block power, glossy red paint, and a custom A/C interior, this is the one classic that your practical and passionate sides can agree on.
Turning grocery-getters into go-fast machines is an art. The best way erase the suburban blues is by investing in a bold red. And that's just the beginning. The addition of a super scoop cowl hood and black SS-style stripes remind you that the '68 Chevelle had one of the most aggressive looks of the muscle car era. There are even Rally wheels with extra meaty rubber in the rear. But there's much more going on here. The bumpers and grille have a mirror-like quality from a solid investment. And we know you love the way the premium trim starts at the headlights and dips down to form the rocket accent. So, this aggressive wagon also has the overall look of quality.
Inside, the updated seating instantly gives this a premium feeling. This was a thoughtful upgrade, and you see it in how the black and parchment two-tone on the seats is complemented by the custom floor mats. And that huge rear cargo area is carpeted, so feel free to load up the tailgating equipment when not showing off this Chevy. Because this is a car you'll want to share with family and friends, there are features to keep them entertained like a power rear window, provisions for an upgraded stereo, and new R134a air conditioning system installed this year. But the best treats are reserved just for you. The high-back bucket seat has the right bolstering for all-day comfort. This feels like a classic Super Sport with the center console with horseshoe shifter. Plus, you have some great upgrades like the three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel (power steering), auxiliary gauge trio, and large column-mounted tach.
This was born a V8 wagon, but it never had anything this wicked from the factory. The engine bay is filled with big block power, and thanks to the polished components, you'll proudly show it off. Not only do you have a massive 496 cubic-inch V8, but it has also been upgraded with LS5 heads, an Edelbrock Performer hi-rise aluminum intake, and a big Holley 850 CFM four-barrel carburetor. Plus, Hedman headers add even more power while giving the X-pipe dual exhaust a terrific growl. The TH400 three-speed transmission is stout enough to handle this power while also delivering automatic cruising. Plus, drilled and slotted front disc brakes deliver the extra stopping power you demand.
This is the ideal classic. After all, you'll convince everyone that you bought a versatile family vehicle with plenty of cargo space. But really it's the big power that sold you. Since there are plenty of people who want to disguise their dream car as a practical classic, you should hurry and call today!
