The moment we have all been waiting for is here! It is Monday morning and the CPP Week to Wicked Chevelle build, presented by Axalta and Super Chevy, is in full swing. The car has rolled into our Santa Ana Tech center– under its own power– and the crew has already begun ripping it apart. Luckily, we have help from the team at Classic Performance Products (CPP) who is joining us in this weeklong thrash. The plan for the day is to tear the car down to a bare shell by yanking the engine, transmission and suspension components; oh, and everything else! That goal is already well underway with the pile of parts stripped from the car rapidly turning into a mountain. Check back often for updates as we race toward our Friday deadline of having this stock 1967 Chevelle fully transformed into a Pro Touring machine.
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!
