Matt D and his father purchased this 1970 Chevelle on December 18th 2015. When purchased the car was fairly stock and needed some minor work to get it where they wanted it to be.
The plan for this 1970 Chevelle build was to be a bracket drag car but still capable of being street driven. With these plans in mind for the build Matt and his father’s first purchase was a drum to disc brake conversion kit from SS396.com.
The conversion was perfect for what they needed and was a great starting place for this future drag car. As all drag cars this 1970 Chevelle needs a little more work to be able to race consistently at the track but it’s time will come eventually.
“The Chevelle is called The College Fund because I bought it while still in high school and that’s where all my money was spent.”– Matt D.
Finally, this 1970 Chevelle features an immaculate father & son paint job to bring the whole build together. In fact, when this Chevelle made its bracket debut at the Indianapolis, Indiana division 3 finals, people said it looked too good to be racing! Matt’s final notes on this car is that it’s a work in progress (like all drag cars) and will definitely need more parts from ss396.com!
