Bow Tie Keepers - Readers' Rides, December 2014

1972 Chevy Cheyenne Super 2/7

1. John Hunnell
1972 Cheyenne Super

Quick Take: This truck sits on a ’67 short box truck frame. Power is from a ZZ350 crate engine. John brings a ladder to shows so kids can climb into the bed and interior.

1970 Chevy Chevelle Ss 3/7

2. Brian Malmquist 1970 Chevelle SS454

Quick Take: The original engine was long gone when Brian picked up this A-body, but it has since been replaced with a correct 454. The rest of the drivetrain consists of a Turbo 400 and 12-bolt Posi with 3.31 gears. Brian did a lot of electrical and mechanical work, plus detailing and finishing touches to get it in its current award-winning condition.

1968 Chevy Nova Ss 4/7

3. Lenny Cockrill
1968 Nova SS

Quick Take: Though driven by a 69-year-old grandfather, this Hugger Orange beauty has matte-black stripes with “real-fire” flames airbrushed onto the hood. An 0.030-over 400 send power to a Muncie four-speed and 12-bolt with 4.10s.

1978 Chevy Malibu 5/7

4. Dan Murray
1978 Malibu

Quick Take: The owner rebuilt and painted this Malibu in 1990 and 1991. A 406 with AFR heads, solid roller cam, 11:1 compression, and FAST XFI 2.0 injection makes around 700 horsepower and Dan hopes it’ll take the car into the low 10s on motor.

1962 Chevy Impala 6/7

5. Pastor Bob Wright
1962 Impala

Quick Take: This owner-proclaimed “old-school” Impala gets its motor-vation via a chromed-out 327/300-horse small-block backed by a four-speed and 4.11 gears. The Las Vegas cruiser is covered in Viper Electric Blue paint.

1955 Chevy Nomad 7/7

6. Craig & Sherry Bowers
1955 Nomad

Quick Take: Sherry always wanted a Nomad and Craig was lucky enough to find this factory air-equipped version. The crate 350 makes 400 horsepower, and the two-tone gray leather interior complements the San Marino Red and silver paint.
