Jim B’s 1969 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Jim B’s 1969 Chevelle

Jim B had a very similar 1969 Chevelle SS in college and he wanted another, so in 1999 he purchased this 1969 Chevelle and its been with him since.

He performed a restoration in 2000, opting to go for an originality route. It retains the original 396/350hp big block and TH400 transmission, with the original 102,000 miles on the body and powertrain alike.

“the favorite part about owning this car is driving it and the sound of a big block.”

Jim
