David Ds 1968 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

David Ds 1968 Chevelle

David originally owned this 1968 Chevelle back in the early 1990’s. As life moved through its paces David had to sell the car when he had kids and times got a bit tough.

It wasn’t until 2013 when one of those kids came home and said “Hey I think I found your old 1968 Chevelle in a field!” David proceeded to go and look at the Chevelle his son found in the field. Sure enough there it was, David’s original 1968 Chevelle.

The time in the field sure did a number on this Chevelle as it was very rough around the edges. Nonetheless,  David and his son decided to take on the project and make a father/son project out of it.

Needless to say the work was hard and took 5 long years to complete but every moment was worth it to see the finished product, a beautiful 1968 Chevelle with an amazing back story that will stand the test of time.

Great story David! We always love to see owners reunited with their old cars! – Team Ground Up
