Andrew A’s 1965 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Andrew A’s 1965 Chevelle

Andrew bought this 1965 Chevelle back in 2014 and “semi” finished it in 2017. Andrew adds

“I say semi-finished because when are we ever really finished with our muscle cars?” -a very true statement!

Andrew chose to restore a 1965 Chevelle because of the cars body lines and sharp looks. He has a love for the square bodies! This Chevelle restoration is mostly factory with some mild modification to help smooth out the ride and give it a bit of a modern touch and feel.

Originally this ’65 Chevelle was a straight 6 / 2 speed car that Andrew had to update. After Andrew’s restoration, the car now features a 312 cid power plant hooked up to a Turbo Hydra-Matic 350 (TH350) transmission.

With this Chevelle being Andrew’s first restoration it will always hold a special place in his mind. Andrew notes:

“If there’s anything that sets this Chevelle apart from the rest it’s due to it being a 1965 model year and most square body Chevelles don’t get enough love”

Ground Up SS396.com was always there for Andrew with everything he needed to get his Chevelle back on the road. Last minute parts and troubleshooting were right up their alley, says Andrew!

Thank you Andrew for choosing Ground Up & sharing your car! We’re glad we were able to give a helping hand during your restoration! -Team Ground Up
