Fred E’s 1969 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Fred E’s 1969 Chevelle

Fred E. had been on the lookout for a 1969 Chevelle for some time when he found this one in his area. It turned out to be a great candidate for what Fred was looking for, powered by a 383 stroker paired to a 4 speed Muncie transmission.

His father had a ’69 Chevelle when he was growing up, and he wanted to share that experience with his own newborn daughter, teaching her about old school muscle and how to drive a manual transmission.

He decided to give the seller a call but was told that the Chevelle had already sold and the buyer was on their way. Not to be discouraged, Fred asked the seller to let him know if the deal fell through for any reason. As luck would have it, that is exactly what happened.

That day was the day I hit the Lottery. In the right place at the right time!!!!
