Brian B’s 1967 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Brian B’s 1967 Chevelle

Brian inherited this 1967 Chevelle from his older brother back in 2014. He and his younger brother decided to “upgrade” the car from showroom condition in their brother’s honor with the parts he was never able to install himself.

“He was a big car guy with 2 muscle cars (1976 Corvette and this 1967 Chevelle) and 3 hotrods (1923 T Bucket, 1925 Model T, 1934 Ford Coupe). All but the 1934 Ford Coupe are still in our extended family of my brothers and step brothers.”

Brian B

Their older brother first acquired this Chevelle Malibu back in 1999 restored to factory original condition, and it immediately caught Brian’s attention ever since. It came equipped rather well, being a 283 small block Powerglide car with factory AC, bucket seats with console, as well as power brakes and power steering.

Brian’s older brother had purchased a 463 big block along with a host of supporting Edelbrock mods to go along with it, such as a Performer RPM Top End kit, but never had the opportunity to install any of them. Brian and their youngest brother would go on to finally install those parts in his memory to turn this Chevelle into a street scorcher.

In 2016, the Chevelle would be stripped by Brian and his younger brother, down to a frame on shell. They transformed the rest by transplanting the built big block engine and equipping a Holley Terminator EFI system, a full Ridetech suspension with Shockwave shocks, Accuair e-level air management, a TCI Street Fighter 700R4 automatic transmission, Hedman headers, Magnaflow exhaust, Wilwood disc brakes, and a Moser Musclepac 12 bolt rear end. By Labor Day weekend of 2017, they started it for the first time.

“Very memorable and fun project to redo my older brother’s car with my younger brother.”

Currently Brian plans to get out and take his Chevelle autocrossing this summer, and cruise with it during the nice weather when he has downtime.

"Great product offerings and after sale support."
