    Cool The 69 Chevelle SS build

    So Im pretty sure no one here has ever even seen this toy. This is my 69 Chevelle 396 SS. Originally my fathers, he was the second owner for over 40 years. It suffered some front end damage back in 2008 unfortunately between building a house, losing his job, getting sick etc he never got around to repair it.

    I have no intentions of it being a points car, (although it is matching numbers) the plan is to pull the front end off engine out, strip it down and clean and replace all the bushing etc. Once thats done I'll set towards the back half of the frame / suspension. Then finally to swap the interior over to black as he wanted to do.

    Some parts on it are very dated / gaudy but I intend to keep it as much of my fathers car as possible...

    I probably won't update this too often but my intention is to at least have the whole front done by end winter....

    1) Gah - Landau roof?! Any plans to get back to normal sheetmetal?
    2) Cool plate.
    3) I want a ride. More accurately, I want to drive it; but I imagine the former "want" is more likely to be realized.

    Grill, headlights, horn, bumper, signals, etc all off the front end. Just need to wait for my brother to give me a hand getting the hood / dog house off.

    I was looking at my pics wonder why is that rear sitting like a fat chick is in it?

    Oh yeah Air Shocks , jacked that ass back up LMAO

    Nice, I like it just the way it sits!
    Personal preference, only thing I would change, is restore the engine bay to original, get rid of the chrome, fancy braided lines, install the correct brackets for the year, and lose that flex fan.

    I was thinking the same; those damn stickers bother me so much... otherwise, it's already pretty sick
