"68_Sleeper"     1968 Chevrolet Chevelle

Introduction / Overview:

Finally gave up on my '71 Chevelle SS project and sold it to buy this 4-door post. I've always liked seeing unusual cars at shows, and my wife does not share my affinity for El Caminos, so this car was something of a cmopromise. It's a lot of fun to drive, and looks good for a 4-door.

Drivetrain: 383 stroker, 350TH
Chassis: Upgraded to power disk brakes in front, and 11" drums (instead of the stock 9 1/2" drums) in the rear. 
Wheels and Tires: Had to upgrade to 15" for clearance to clear the rear drums. Standard Corvette/Camaro rally-style wheels.
Body & Paint: AWFUL Maaco job done by previous owner; part of the sleeper concept. I had the white vinyl top put on; Chevelles usually look better with vinyl tops in my book.
Interioir: Non-original cloth bench seats; interior is in pretty good original-looking shape.
Lifestyles: Build-It, Drive-It
