1973 Chevelle SS454
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.
Quick Take: Originally powered by a 350, Lawrence’s 1971 Nova now has a 468-inch big-block under the hood. The transmission is a TH350 but there are future plans for a Monster 200-4R. Lawrence thanks his MSD Atomic EFI for squeezing out 16 miles-per-gallon fuel mileage.
2008 HHR SS
Quick Take: George Moore reports his 2008 Chevy HHR SS in Sunburst Orange. The car has heavy-duty coilover shocks, big brakes, and an S256 turbocharger with, ZZ Performance intercooler. George says it’s tuned to 400-plus rear-wheel horsepower — whew!
Quick Take: Taken at the Tucson Super Chevy Show, here’s Aaron Roop’s 1966 Chevelle SS396 now with LS2 Corvette power.
1955 Bel Air
Quick Take: Torn from the digital pages of Facebook, here’s Alexander Santos’ very clean, and very red and white 1955 Chevy Bel Air two-door hardtop. Notice it’s complete with Foxcraft fender skirts and 1959 Corvette hubcaps.
1959 El Camino
Quick Take: Don did the bodywork and paint on his 1959 Chevy El Camino. The “Elkie” came from the factory with a Tri-power 348 and three-speed stick. It now has a four-speed stick with a fuzzy spare tire cover.
