Some cars just lend themselves to customization, and the two-tone paint scheme on this 1965 Chevelle looks so right, you wonder why the factory didnt offer them this way from the start. Beautifully finished in the finest custom tradition, its a show-stopper thats so well built you can drive it every day. If you like the look, youre sure to be impressed by the quality. The 65 Chevelle was a simple, plain design, just ripe for a customizers touch, like a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into art. The foundation is a super-straight hardtop body, and with the work done as it has been, you can see details like the subtle crease on the rear quarters that give the fenders a muscular look. The original hood has been retained, and even most of the original badges are still in place. That two-tone paint job does most of the talking, with subtle charcoal gray over vivid red, separated by a bright lime green pinstripe, and it all works together extremely well. Dig how smooth the flanks are, how beautifully sharply the transition from one color to the other has been rendered, and the incredible shine provided by a miles-deep clearcoat. Good chrome and stainless stay in the background, accenting the bodywork without becoming overpowering, like all great customs. The interior keeps it mostly stock, with a handsome pair of red bench seats wearing correct reproduction seat covers. The dash, too, retains a stock look, mirroring the exterior with a two-tone black over red color scheme highlighted by a billet wheel with a red leather wrapper. The original instruments are still doing their thing in a shiny textured panel, augmented by a pair of white-faced auxiliary gauges down low. Fresh black carpets and new door panels with custom speakers add to the fresh look, with those speakers being powered by a Sony AM/FM/CD stereo head unit that has been cleanly fitted in the stock dash, as well as a JVC subwoofer and amplifier in the trunk. And speaking of the trunk, it is neatly upholstered in gray cloth so it looks clean and theres nothing hiding underneath. This Chevelles built 327 also comes close to achieving the mythical 1-horsepower-per-cubic-inch threshold with a reported 325 horsepower on tap. Thanks to an Edelbrock carb, long-tube headers, and a big Comp Cams camshaft in the middle, it cackles and snarls at idle and pulls like a freight train on the road. Its also beautifully finished under the hood, with matching red inner fenders and a smooth firewall that frame the brightly dressed small block. Theres a bunch of chrome and billet dress-up, and thoughtful upgrades like power steering and power disc brakes are included. A built TH350 3-speed automatic with a shift kit and 2000 RPM stall torque converter give it snappy reflexes around town and theres a 10-bolt rear putting the power down. The chassis is highly original, but that also means no surprises, with solid floors and no signs of accident damage. Staggered Coys wheels give it a Torque Thrust look and wear 235/45/17 front and 255/45/18 rear performance radials. Beautifully built and fully sorted, this is the kind of custom you can enjoy without worries and still expect to draw a crowd every time you stop. Call today!
