Project Chevelle

Just picked this up in Calgary, belonged to my Sister's neighbour and was in his family for a couple of generations though they didn't buy it new. '67 Chevelle Malibu, mostly original, 283 auto (swapped out the powerglide for a TH350 when the slip and slide broke). Has a bit of rust to fix but pretty good for an old Chevelle. Interior is mint but too bad it's red and bench seat.

Going to start off with a power steering conversion and power disc brakes. then to build the 454 I've had in my shop for years - has closed chamber large oval port heads from a 427 on it which are getting some porting done, doing a 496 stroker and putting either a M21 or M22 in it along with a 12 bolt. Keeping it mostly old school, no retromod car here! If someone has a line on an old Muncie or even a super T10 for sale let me know. I can get a brand new one from the states but looking at $2g so a used one would be nice.

If anyone has buckets from that era, think pontiac and olds around the same year are the same I'm looking for a set. Also want a set of camaro or corvette rallys, like I said, old school

Good to know. I will find out when the trim comes off. I wish this was an SS but would have paid a lot more! Thought it was a pretty good find being a complete driver. Been looking around Arizona on craigslist for a while and everything is either really pricey or a basket case needing a bunch of parts to put it back together

Kms sells a complete disk brake conversion
Comes with spindles stock or 2 inch drop
Master booster and everything to do the conversion
And it's cheaper than what it cost me to just do the disk conversion on my wagon
Nice looking chevelle if you do the bucket seats I would be interested in your bench seat

I saw those disc conversions on ebay. Cheap too, was under $600 to do the front with everything including spindles and booster. $900 for front and rear. I'll let you know when I get some buckets. This bench seat is mint but red

If you are doing the buckets year 1 makes the proper braces to weld in to the floor so it's like factory Personally I like the bench seat it's like sitting on a big old. Comfy couch and your better looking half can snuggle up to you when it's cold out
And preserves the sleeper look nothing like a low ten second street car
With a bench and shift on the colum

I agree it would be more of a sleeper but I'm reliving my youth through this one, had a '66 Beaumont sport deluxe when I was 18. It had buckets with a 4 speed and a high revving small block
