Ken V’s 1967 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Ken V’s 1967 Chevelle

This 1967 Chevelle is Ken’s first ’67 and most recent completed project. He’s always owned Super Sport Chevelle’s, but never had a 1967 yet.

Before the 1967 Chevelle, he had a mint 1969 Chevelle SS that was sold back in 1981 in order for Ken to buy a van for $2800 and start his electrical contracting business.

“30 + years later my business owed me a super sport. I never had a ‘67 and always wanted one.”

When he found this 1967 Chevelle, it had a weak engine and Ken knew it’d be replaced immediately. As he drove it home, the motor gave out just as he reached his driveway. He had to have a neighbor help push the Chevelle into the garage.

Ken took the opportunity to replace the blown motor with a crate 454 coupled with Holley Sniper fuel injection. The existing Richmond T-10 4 speed transmission was still fine, so he left that as it was. However, Ken chose to add a 4 wheel disc brake conversion and a new 3 inch stainless exhaust as well as air conditioning.

“When you drive this car and open it up it is a thrill that takes me back to when I was 18 years old. I will always own a super sport Chevelle the thrill is amazing.”

Ken plans to find another Super Sport project, because this 1967 Chevelle SS is done.

"I only found out recently about ss396.com and can’t wait to use them on my next project. They really do have every part for a Chevelle and the prices are great"

-Ken
