Our client came to us with an idea of a badass restomod to cruise with his family. We went to work and found the perfect car: a first generation Chevelle. In 1967 the Chevelle received a facelift before going into its new body style in 1968. The car was unique, clean, and had the potential for a mean, aggressive presence. Once we got the car to our facility, we got to work revising and redesigning what this classic muscle car could be. After quite a few discussions, we decided to swap a GM crate LS3 with a T-56 magnum into it. The team made the calls, ordered everything necessary and began to disassemble the vehicle. The body was pulled from the frame in order to clean it up and strengthen and powdercoat the frame. While we had the body off, we installed a Ridetech air suspension and Wilwood disc brakes at all four corners. Once the swap was complete, we place the body back on the frame and jumped into the interior. E-Tailored sourced an original 1967 Chevelle bench seat and reupholstered the entire interior to a deep blood red. A hidden sound system as well as Vintage Air Unit made sure we kept the original classic look of the vehicle while adding all the modern amenities. An American Autowire wiring harness tied the entire car together. Just recently the "Rebel", as the team dubbed it, received a fresh paint job in Rebel Grey with all satin black accents.
