Gary purchased this 1969 Chevelle from a seller on eBay back in 2015, having only seen the pictures. Luckily, the seller was honest and what he saw was what he received.
“I used up all my eBay mojo in one purchase.”Gary
This would be his first muscle car; he’s always dreamt of owning one and now that dream has become a reality. He grew up building models and seeing his brothers’ friends’ muscle cars and now he finally can call one his own.
This 1969 Chevelle currently has a ‘78+ 454 big block that was swapped in, making around 450 horsepower and paired to a Muncie M21 close ratio 4 speed being shifted by a Hurst Competition Plus shifter. Underneath the car all of the suspension components have been upgraded to UMI Performance products to give the Chevelle track-oriented handling characteristics. The big block breathes through Hedman headers into a Flowmaster dual exhaust, fueled by a Holley 770 CFM carburetor.
“I have been having an absolute blast driving my muscle car for the last five years every weekend.”Gary
Since Gary has taken care of the power and handling, he’s been digging into other aspects of the 1969 Chevelle to get it closer to completion. He intends to install new door panels in the near future.
