My father ordered this Chevelle in April 1964 after GM started offering the 327 engine option. He ordered the L30 engine mated to a Muncie M20. My mom and dad piled up the miles on it and eventually had to buy a new car. But my dad kept the car and planned to rebuild it. Sadly, that was not to be. He died from prostate cancer in 1980. A few weeks before he died, he gave me the car.

I had good intentions of fixing it up, but lugged the car around for over 30 years before beginning its restoration.
In the fall of 2015 I met Steve Woodbury (master bodyman & painter) and in February 2016 we finally began the restoration. Steve & I worked together. Steve did the body work: rust repair; fabrication; painting. I worked on the mechanical stuff: frame; suspension; engine; etc. There were a few "bumps" along the way, but overall the process was very rewarding. Most all parts including engine and transmission are original. Not original are the 4-wheel disc brakes, power steering and 2" dropped spindles. I also gave it a nice set of 17" American Racing Wheels. I think my Dad would be very pleased on how it turned out.
