In 1986 I bought the car of my dreams I was 14 years old. It was an Artesian Turquoise 1965 Chevelle SS that had a little over 30,000 miles and I paid $1,000 for it. The guy I bought it from had raced it since the early 70's. It had originally been a L79 car with a 4spd. My Dad was a smart guy and wouldn't let a young kid run that motor. So when I had small engines class in high school I built a 406 while everyone else was building Briggs. I kept the 4spd in it and when it was ready I had a car that me and my father had put together. When I turned 16 the car was ready to go, so off I went. I tore up the local streets finding anyone that wanted a race, keeping the 4safter a few years the car was known around the area. Soon after school was over I got into sport bikes and the car sat, when my plow truck needed a motor the 406 was pulled and the heart of the car was gone. The car sat for the next 26 years in a shed. Last summer a friend of mine gave me some seat time in his 69 Nova at the local drag strip. That got my heart back into my Chevelle. So after a few days of thinking of what I wanted to do I pulled the car out of storage. Me and my Dad set a plan, lets make a old school looking street/drag car.......OK! So here are the plans. My dad has had a fresh 60 over 396 with original GM aluminum heads, 12 1/2:1 pistons roller rockers and a healthy cam and a good steel crank. For a little eye candy it will have a dual 4 tunnel ram! I'm keeping the 4spd with a 12 bolt and 373 gears. It should make a fun little street car that I can run at the track a few times. My plans are to have it ready in a month or two, wish me luck.
