DRIVETRAIN- The mechanical build sheet on this car reads like a Who's Who in the Performance Industry. The popularity of the 10.5 inch tire cars is soaring both in racing and Street Machine categories. This '68 was built as a true 10.5 inch tire car.
The powerplant is a mechanical work of art. The engine was designed to utilize big block horsepower, but minimize the inherent stump pulling torque, enabling the car to run with 10.5 inch rear tire dimension. The result is a big block stroker motor.
The 454 GM block was bored to 468 Cu. In., then destroked to a total of 439.3 Cu. In. By destroking the engine, it was transformed from a torque monster to an RPM engine. Steel crank, Eagle H Beam rods. Manley 12:1 forged pistons. Doug Herbert solid roller cam and Comp Cams solid roller lifters, pushrods, and Chromoly rocker arms. Brodix aluminum heads. Edelbrock Victor aluminum intake. Holley 950 CFM Pro Series carb. MSD 6 AL ignition with 3 step rev limiter. MSD Billet distributor. Jet coated headers with 3 inch Dyno Max exhaust.
Coan Competition Turbo 400 reverse manual valve body with trans brake. ATI converter. B&M Pro Ratchet shifter. Custom balanced driveshaft with Spicer joints. Twelve bolt differential. Strange Spool with Richmond 4.56 gears and Strange 33 spline axles. Hotchkiss boxed control arms. Koni gas shocks. Trunk mounted Optima battery and stainless steel fuel cell.
This car is priced to sell. It is priced at about half of the cost to build. Feel free to add it up yourself- price a rust free, original body panel 1968 Chevelle, then add up all the work that was performed in this restoration. This is a great opportunity for someone looking for a show quality Street Machine, but doesn't want to spend $50,000 to build it.
