Having a 427 cubic-inch V8 in your Chevelle instantly makes you a muscle car hero. However, this 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Restomod takes it far above the rest. That's because the motor is a modern fuel-injected LS7 427 V8. Plus, this has been upgraded everywhere that counts, including the suspension, transmission, and comfy A/C interior. So dig into the details on a hardtop stunner that has less than 550 miles on the build.
If you're going to have a superior muscle car restomod, it pays to start with arguably the best hardtop icon, the '72 Chevelle. After all, it was the final year for this generation, and it was the final time we got the beefy front end, fastback profile, and a true pillarless hardtop. Because this is a true performance juggernaut, it needs the kind of black pant that looks like it slips through the midnight air. Now add the best speedy details, like hood pins, big exhaust tips, Super Sport badging, and high contrast racing stripes. This was the final year for the bumpers to truly hug the car's form, and so you want the chrome shining like it does here. Plus, a good investment in factory-style brightwork goes nicely with the upgrade to modern polished alloys. And the 15/20 inch front rear stagger gives this an awesome forward-leaning stance that signals there is some serious power within.
Just like the exterior, the interior keeps its classic style while giving you an upgraded experience. This starts with the seats. Both the front buckets and rear bench have a factory-style pattern. But they have been restored with fresh padding and a cool red and black two-tone that goes with the custom coupe's aggressive nature. The door panels, carpeting, headliner, and dash are all done in a deep black for a terrific look. You have nice comfort upgrades to keep everyone happy, like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, custom cup holder center console, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. But the best treats are reserved just for the driver. You have a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on a tilt column, power steering, a B&M shifter, and a Dakota Digital gauge package with large speedo and tach.
You're going to want to lift the hood on this one everywhere you park. After all, jaws will drop as people peek inside and see the modern 7.0-liter (427 cubic-inch) fuel-injected LS7 V8. Oh yes, this is the kind of powerhouse that made a modern Z/28 Camaro king of the streets, and they are known to make 500+ horsepower right out of the box! And this one was upgraded further with BTR Stage III camshaft, BTR chromoly pushrods, ported cylinder head, ARP bolts, five-angle valve job, ported LS7 intake/throttle body, and headers feeding the MagnaFlow dual exhaust. This is a serious setup that not only looks fresh, but also it was done with a major eye for quality. That's why it has supporting pieces like the engine computer, GM performance LS7 wiring harness, Holley LS accessory drive belt system, Griffin aluminum radiator, and a performance timing chain. The 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission was built to handle this LS power, and even has a 3000-3200 RPM stall. It feeds a custom driveshaft on its way to the stout 12-bolt rear end. The suspension is a new front tubular A-arm setup, upgraded arms in the rear w/sway bar, QA1 coilovers, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
Complete with build receipts and maintenance records, this is a total performance build wrapped around a muscle car icon. This chevelle also comes with a brand new set of BF Goodrich 235/60R15 tires and new 15" wheels still in the box! So if you want the ultimate restomod, call today!
