Don G’s 1969 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Don G’s 1969 Chevelle

Back in 1999, Don’s 18 year old son came to him and said that he wanted a 1969 Chevelle.

After picking myself off the floor we started looking. You have to know he had shown no interest in classic cars before this.

The pair located this 1969 Chevelle, went to see it, and promptly bought it. They’ve since rebuilt the engine, which is the original 396/325hp big block. They decided to add a more radical cam, roller rockers, aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake and Holley 750 cfm carburetor. Exhaust is helped by a set of Hooker headers, and everything gets going through a TH400 transmission.

Fun to drive and show! It’s part of the family!
