My recent purchase. smile 1967 Chevelle 300.
Has a real mild SB 350 with auto tranny. 12 bolt posi 4.11 rear end.
My brother in law took it down the track last fall with a not so great carb and tune, it ran a 13:81.
Fixed the carb problems and gave it a much needed tune, should run low 13's now. Can't wait to see!

I've got a BB 454 waiting in the wings for next spring! smile

Nice looking car! Want to see how it does against the Rolando Mustango?

Robert:

That is one nice looking car, I had forgotten what a looker those were.

It also reminded me of my '64 Malibu SS... I paid $300 for it back about 1972, had the 283 and Powerglide. The engine was worn out, I had to add a quart of oil with every tank of gas. At the time I was making a meager living fishing out of a 18 foot skiff for rockfish. Sometimes I would get lucky and catch 800lbs or so and I would have a few hundred dollars for the days work. I hauled the fish to market in plastic burlap bags, I put them in the back seat. For some reason no one wanted to ride in my car. smile

I'll bet you don't have that problem.

Thanks David.

The exhaust note and drag radials give it away a little. smile

Here is another shot of it. Somewhere along it's life someone put an SS hood on it.

I applaud your choice of NOT putting low-profile tires and rims on that car. A lot of the newer hot rodders are doing it and it just looks BAD
