Dave and his Wife Lynn found their 1969 Chevelle on eBay. He and his wife had wanted a Chevelle wagon for a long time. When he was looking on eBay and came across this Chevelle in Minneapolis, they were going up there anyway. So they looked at it, drove it, and after we heard the story about it, we just had to have it!
Rick the owner at the time, special ordered this Chevelle new from the dealer in Kansas City in 1969. He loved Chevys especially the Corvette! He wanted one bad but he had a quandary at home, a wife, and kids. And his wife wanted a station wagon. That was more practical, she said. So no Corvette for Rick.
He called the owner of the dealership and talked to him about it and came up with a solution that would make everyone happy! Unbeknownst to his wife, he special ordered a 1969 Chevelle Concours Wagon with a 350 V8 engine, a Muncie M20 4 speed transmission, and a 3.73 geared 12 bolt positraction rear end. He also ordered a 350 HP, 10.25:1 compression, 4-bolt main, 350 Corvette crate engine!
As soon as the wagon arrived at the dealer, he had them yank out the stock 350 engine and install that screamin’ Corvette engine. Now he had a wagon worthy of driving! Then he took it home and promptly installed headers and dual exhaust. Man, what a sleeper he had! And one of the rarest Chevelles on the planet!
Dave and Lynn’s favorite part of owning this 1969 Chevelle, is driving it and telling the story of its creation. They get compliments on it everywhere they go, even though it’s got “patina”!
In-store for this car’s future is new sheet metal, rust repair, new paint, interior repair, engine rebuild, front end rebuild with power disc brakes, and getting a vintage air system installed.
