Forrest W’s 1964 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Forrest W’s 1964 Chevelle

Restomod 1964 Chevelle

Forrest Walker has owned this 1964 Chevelle since the 1990s. This 1964 Chevelle was originally built in the Van Nuys/Los Angeles, CA plant and eventually made its way through life and ended up in Idaho in 1990. Once Forrest got his hands on this beauty he decided to bring it into the 21st century and resto-mod this pristine classic.

Forrest’s 1964 Chevelle is currently equipped with a Blueprint 355 cubic inch crate motor putting out 400 HP and 410 ft. lbs torque coupled to its original Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission. But Forrest didn’t stop there, the interior also received some major modern upgrades. This includes a Vintage Air system to keep this classic running cool, Electronic Cruise Control to make highways a joy, Ididit Steering Column for precise steering, Power Disc-Drum Brakes to bring that 400 horsepower powerplant to a screeching halt, and Dakota Digital analog readout gauges for that touch of 21st-century technology.

Underneath this 64′ Chevelle sits an all tubular front and rear suspension with front and rear sway bars to make this classic handle just as well as the modern muscle cars of today. Forrest says;

“I have bought quite a few parts from Ground Up to get this 1964 Chevelle where it is today. My original plan for this Chevelle was to quickly flip it as it was in pretty good condition, but the more work I did on it and the more I drove it, the more I fell in love with it. Subsequently, I still own the car today and don’t have any plans on getting rid of it just quite yet.”

Today, Forrest enjoys the car he poured his blood sweat and tears into and he finds himself at a lot of local cruise-ins and car shows that he drives his 64′ Chevelle to and from.
