Joe D’s 1968 Chevelle SS396

Built From The Ground Up

Joe D’s 1968 Chevelle SS396

Joe had been on the hunt for a Chevelle for about 5 years or so when in June of 2019 this 1968 Chevelle popped up unexpectedly. He had been talking to a customer of his when muscle cars were brought up, and it turned out this gentleman was selling one.

This Chevelle SS convertible had already undergone a full restoration / resto-mod before the owner decided to part ways with it, so Joe really did not have to do much. It came with a 396 big block, Muncie 4-speed as per usual, but Joe would like to invest in a completely new drivetrain in the near future.
