You probably stopped to look at this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Pro Touring because you know you've seen it somewhere before. It's a true star car that has done everything, including SEMA, television shows, and the cover of Hot Rod (we even have a copy to prove it!) This is a full custom done by Year One and Brewer Restoration and Performance, and so that means the best parts went into the build. Then, they decided to showcase this 500hp big block machine everywhere. So dig into al the details on .....
your opportunity to take home something that's sleek, unique, and absolutely a celebrity.
A build like this gets planned out well in advance. We even have the concept drawings that were the basis for this awesome two-tone. Blue Blood Red and Orion Silver are some of the boldest hues from House of Kolor, and they are expertly applied on this Chevelle. There's even a thin yellow pinstripe separating them, and it turns into a flame on the rear fenders...oh yes, they really went into the details here. The '67 Chevelle is a great place to start for a custom car because it is right at the intersection of classic style and muscular features. And when Year One is going to do a build, they make sure the body as awesome as possible. This has a very cool and modern style that expertly shaves the badging, and the bumpers are painted silver. The presentation removes a lot of the excess. This allows your eyes to fully appreciate classic elements like the flying buttress roof line, as well as custom pieces like the tall cowl hood. The final piece to this total custom package is a stance that's absolutely perfect. The Billet Specialties wheels have e a classic look but a modern size. And the staggered 17/18-inch front/rear setup with extra wide rear rubber emphasizes that there is serious power coming from the rear.
When you think of Year One, you think of competition-ready components, and so the interior is a professional setup. The fully integrated red package includes leather high-back front bucket seats, gForce five-point racing belts, and a custom 12-point roll cage that keeps the back seat usable. The center console houses a digital air/fuel mixture readout, a full panel of race-ready toggle switches, and a Hurst ratchet shifter. The Billet Specialties steering wheel is mounted on a Flaming River tilt column, and it gives you a clear view to the professional grade AutoMeter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite full gauge package. And while this might seem like a pure track day machine, this also has cold-blowing air conditioning to make sure this is ready for far more than just the quarter-mile. If this seems like it has a road-ready level of finish, that's because this car was built to be driven. It's a true showcase for the best products around, and it has twice been on the cross-country Power Tour. So this has the right level of presentation and features that will make you not hesitate to take it on another tour.
Under the hood is a true beast. It starts with a Merlin 540 cubic-inch Chevy big block. It's enhanced and fortified with an Eagle 4340 forged steel crank, Manley rods, JE forged pistons, Merlin rectangular-port aluminum heads, Comp Cams solid roller camshaft, Comp Cams roller valvetrain, and topped with a Holley electronic fuel injection system. You probably saw how the front of the car gave up two eyes, and now you can see that it's to force feed this big/bad machine with fresh air. And Hooker Super Competition headers let this exhale with added power and authority (and cutouts really let you bring the thunder whenever you want.) It's supported by all the right pieces, including a Be Cool aluminum radiator, MSD ignition, and steel braided lines with AN fittings. This is a big power machine, and so this has stout TH400 three-speed automatic with TCI 3500 stall. This feeds a Moser 12-bolt rear with Eaton limited-slip diff and 3.73 gears. And when it's time to hit the Power Tour again, there's Gear Vendors overdrive to let this beast settle into a cruiser. The undercarriage photos show the full custom suspension that includes Global West tubular front A-arms, reinforced ladder bars in the rear, QA1 nine-way adjustable coilovers, and SSBC four-wheel disc brakes.
There is so much more to go over on this build. We have a ton of documentation, magazines, restoration photos, a dyno sheet, and plenty more details of the big name components that went into this Chevelle so that they could use it for promotion. So if all the best component makers were using this for their endorsements, you know it's the kind of top quality build you may never find again. Don't miss you chance, call today!
