The last time we checked in with the crew over at D&P Classic Chevy in Huntington Beach, California, they were well on their way to finishing the Chop, Cut, Rebuild The Series Chevelle project. In fact, the chassis, drivetrain, and paint and body were all taken care of. Now all that's left to do is to finish up the inside and hit the road.
Just like the rest of the car, D&P owner, Darryl Nance, wanted something out of the norm for the interior. Although the car is built to handle and run hard, Darryl didn't want the inside of the Chevelle to look like the inside of a NASCAR racer. Instead, Darryl intends to cruise the beaches of So Cal in comfort and style.
The OEM interior was tossed out and a new, modern, handcrafted cabin was installed in its place. When it's time to take a load off, passengers in the Chevelle will sit comfortably in one of the four Lexus 300 bucket seats. Along with the Lexus buckets are custom door panels and a full-length, Surfboard-influenced center console. The dash was cut out and a new and-created dash was built to give the car a modern and functional look. Instead of using the conventional door handles, locks and cranks, Electric-Life supplied electric windows and a shaved door handle kit. The interior was then covered in a two-tone tan/brown leather scheme.
And what about the sound system? Three words to describe it: Over the Top! For starters, the CCR Chevelle is equipped with a Pioneer head unit complete with CD, DVD, navigation, voice command and g-Force data . . . trick huh? Echoing through the Chevelle are sounds coming from the MA Audio speakers and subwoofers powered by 1200 watts from MA Audio amps. Making sure that not a watt of power is lost, the Chevelle is also equipped with MA Audio wiring and capacitors. Every way you look at it, the Chevelle's cabin speaks volumes of the effort that went into assembling this budding TV star.
