Timothy L’s 1969 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Timothy L’s 1969 Chevelle

When Tim was 18, he was lucky enough to own a stunning 1969 Chevelle that he didn’t want to part with.

However, as time passed, he was forced to part with it, and it became a lifelong dream to one day get another one. Fast forward to three years ago, and that dream finally became a reality – he was able to purchase a gorgeous 1969 Chevelle and he is having a ball with it.

While the 1969 Chevelle was already impressive, I knew that I could take it to the next level by upgrading the 350ci engine and T-10 four-speed transmission. That’s why he decided to take on this exciting project, which not only allows him to relive the good old days but also gives him the chance to enhance the car’s performance and ride quality.

With the planned upgrade to a 3.31 gear ratio, he’s confident that this beauty will have even more power and speed, making it a true standout on the road. It is an SS Clone.

Overall, owning and restoring this classic Chevelle has been an absolute thrill. It’s a symbol of his love for cars and a tribute to an era of automotive excellence that will always hold a special place in his heart.

"Great"
