1973 Chevelle SS454
Ralph Ciardelli

Quick Take: Ralph and his son found this 1973 Chevelle SS454 in 1986 and bought it for $650. They then spent four years restoring it for its first go-round. Now in its third incarnation, it’s running a hopped-up 454 with a four-speed and 3.73 positraction. The color is Fathom Blue.
