Pure Factory Muscle. Bob’s brother ordered this 1968 Chevelle SS brand new while employed at Merrick Chevrolet in Berea, OH.
This car was optioned with one purpose: Drag racing. Options included an L78 engine, 4:88 posi, close-ratio transmission, HD springs, manual AM radio, and tinted glass.
Needless to say after 8 months of drag racing, the original 396 expired and warranty replacement was a 402. Bob tells us that in 1972, the Muncie went south so his brother parked the car in his garage. In 2000, Bob got a call from his brother wondering If he’d be interested in buying the car. So he then purchased all of the parts and pieces and restored the Chevelle back to 98% original.
Today, the Chevelle is driven to shows with just over 32,000 original miles on the odometer. The car has won first place in the 1968 and a new stock class at the Super Chevy Show.
