The CPP Week to Wicked build, presented by Super Chevy and Axalta has rounded a major milestone. What was yesterday a stripped-down shell of a Chevrolet is now a fully sprung Pro Touring ride. It’s 3:00 pm and we officially have the entire suspension under the car. Now, we just need to make it drive.

So far, the build has been a 100-percent bolt-on affair. The CPP front suspension, brakes and rear suspension were all cake installations requiring no modification to the Chevelle. However, from this point on, the dial is getting turned up and the difficulty will be increasing exponentially. The engine is getting dropped in shortly and there is still a ton of wiring, fabricating and other miscellaneous work to do before the car is truly road-worthy. The clock is rapidly winding down and there will no doubt be a couple gallons of midnight oil needing to be burned.

Stay tuned on Facebook and SuperChevy.com and don’t miss a minute of the build as the clock runs down and we continue on our path to Pro Touring-awesomeness on this Chevelle.

What is CPP Week to Wicked Presented by Super Chevy and Axalta?

It all begins the morning of April 18 when our stock 1967 Chevelle will roll into Super Chevy’s Santa Ana Tech Center for a full teardown and rebuild. We’ll be pulling the car down to its bones, replacing steering, suspension, powertrain, drivetrain, and just about everything else you can possibly imagine; all with the goal of bringing the performance of a 1967 Chevelle up to par with modern muscle cars. It’ll be a mad rush till the very last seconds of our timeline. And if that wasn’t enough, immediately following the build, we’ll be driving the car on a 1,000-plus-mile road trip to prove its road readiness. We’ll be hitting the drag strip, the engine dyno, and a few scenic local sites!

How can you follow along from home? The entire event will be covered on SuperChevy.com via daily video and story updates, as well as on all of our social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Stay tuned for what is sure to be one heckuva ride!
