Fred O’S 1972 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Fred O’S 1972 Chevelle

Fred was searching for a year or so before he came across his dream car. It was located in Michigan one owner 1972 Chevelle Malibu. It had a 6-cylinder 2-speed automatic.

He brought it home stripped it down and started his build of a 1972 Chevelle SS Tribute. He started by replacing the 6 bangers with a 402BB with a turbo 350 w/shift kit and a posi rear end. The 402 is a mild build with a comp cam, Edelbrock intake, and 750 carbs with hooker headers and Pypes exhaust.

He then continued rebuilding the car just shy of a frame-off restoration. He wanted the build to look like it would have back in 1972 doing everything himself other than the paint.

It’s unique to him being he’s always wanted a 1972 Chevelle and to build it himself.

He would like to drop a 502 in it someday along with front disc brakes.
