4610 Pet Lane
This 1974 Chevrolet Chevelle Laguna S-3 coupe represented a top-of-the-line coupe when new, and this meticulously restored example upholds that feeling to the fullest. So you'll love everything from the striking paint combo to the numbers-matching V8 power under the hood. Even the undercarriage looks brand new.
The Chevelle Laguna ushered in a whole new kind of style. The headlights are deeply sculpted into the design for an elegant look that also gives better definition to the line that starts in the fenders and runs all the way through the doors. The front has a sporty and almost seamless look as Chevrolet gave these a dent-resistant urethane front end. The paint is a beautifully finished Antique White, and the detailed burgundy lower section that encircles this car really shows off what a premium Laguna S-3 was all about. And the burgundy vinyl roof has a taut feel and a coordinating tone with the lower accenting. So it's a terrific way to show off the now-iconic Colonnade roofline. The reason why this car looks so impressive today is because you're looking at a labor of love. The consignor spent years searching for the right car that reminded him of the one he had in high school. When he found THE ONE, he then spent nearly a decade of time, money, and labor in a frame-off restoration. And with only about 600 miles of showing it around town since completion, this remains a stunning coupe. In fact, it's such a well-done representation of what a brand new Laguna S-3 should look like that this actual car is the main image when you look up the model on Wikipedia!
The red interior is a terrific harmonizing color with the exterior accents, and it has been restored to a show-ready condition. In fact, we know you'll love leaving the door open at every cruise-in and cars & coffee just so that you can showcase the swivel bucket seats that came on the best GM cars of the era. And while the odometer is quite low since this finished its restoration, we know you won't be able to resist adding some serious mileage. The Chevelle Laguna's driver-oriented dash goes particularly nicely with the premium bucket seat and center console combo. It's an easy reach to the Delco AM/FM stereo and air conditioning now running modern R134a (it will likely need a recharge to blow ideally cold.) The NK4 sports steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you an excellent view of the gauges. So it's a classic that still gives you a great sports car feel.
More of the careful restoration is evident in the ultra-tidy engine bay. At the center is the numbers-matching 400 cubic-inch V8. The optional powerhouse was an ideal offering of the era that gave you small block weight but with added displacement for an extra helping of power and torque. The fresh undercarriage is the ideal mix where it gives you confidence to drive this coupe and also put a mirror under it when you park. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and sway bars front & rear make this a great all-around cruiser.
The sale comes complete with restoration photos, build receipts, owner's manual, and maintenance records. It all goes to prove that price took a back seat to quality and accuracy in this restored coupe. We all want something special, but there's only one amazing Laguna S-3 up for grabs. Don't miss your chance, call today!
