Robert D’s 1972 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Robert D’s 1972 Chevelle

Robert found this 1972 Chevelle in 2016 after selling off his ’66 Chevelle. This one was raced as a drag car for years and was badly in need of a restoration, or at least a refresh.

This old dragster has a stock 454 with a TH400 and 12 bolt rear end. He’s put a lot of time and effort into getting this Chevelle back in top shape after the abuse it’s endured over the years, with a lot still to come.

“I am 65 so this will be my last one and this one I will keep”

Robert

The next step of Robert’s plan will be to address issues with the body.

"I have been getting parts from Ground Up for many years the service and parts are great."

-Robert
