Description for Chevrolet Chevelle 1968

I AM THE SECOND OWNER OF THIS BEAUTIFUL 1968 TRUE 138 SS 396 CHEVELLE THAT I PURCHASED IN 1976. IT WAS REPAINTED TO THE FACTORY BUTTERNUT YELLOW IN 1998. THE SEATS AND FRONT DOOR PANELS HAVE ALSO BEEN REDONE TO THE FACTORY OYSTER COLOR AND FABRIC. THE TURBO 400 TRANSMISSION AND 12 BOLT 3. 73 REAR END ARE ORIGINAL. THE ENGINE IS A DATE CORRECT 396 THAT WAS REDONE IN 2000. IT HAS BEEN BORED . 030 AND A LUNATI CAM. EDELBROCK INTAKE. HOLLEY 650 AND A SPECTRE AIR FILTER WERE ADDED. IT HAS A MSD 6 BOX AND ELECTRONIC HEI IGNITION AND CAST EXHAUST MANIFOLDS THAT HAVE BEEN CERAMIC COATED WITH AN ALUMINIZED FLOWMASTER EXHAUST SYSTEM. I CHANGE THE FACTORY DISC BRAKES TO A SINGLE PISTON CALIPER STYLE AND I WILL INCLUDE THE ORIGINAL FACTORY 4 PISTON CALIPERS WITH SPINDLES WITH THE SALE. THE CAR ORIGINALLY HAD A BENCH SEAT BUT I HAVE CONVERTED TO BUCKET SEATS AND CONSOLE FROM A DONOR 1968 CHEVELLE. I WILL INCLUDE THE FACTORY SEAT AND THE STEERING COLUMN SHIFTER LEVER AND LINKAGE. THE ORIGINAL STEERING WHEEL WAS CHANGED TO THE ONE SHOWN AND WILL ALSO BE INCLUDED. THE STEERING COLUMN WAS CHANGED TO A FLAMING RIVER LAST YEAR DUE TO A VERY WORN OUT FACTORY TILT COLUMN. THE WHEELS AND TIRES ARE 17" AND HAVE DECENT TREAD REMAINING. THE CAR IS VERY RELIABLE AND DRIVES ABSOLUTELY GREAT WITH NO RATTLES OR WIND LEAKS. ALL THE WEATHERSTRIP AND BODY GASKETS HAVE BEEN REPLACED. IT HAS NO MAJOR LEAKS AND DOES NO USE NOR BURN OIL OR FLUIDS. IT HAS A FACTORY A/C THAT REQUIRES FREON ONCE A YEAR WHEN THE WEATHER REQUIRES THE USE OF THE A/C. THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS IT WILL NEED THE REAR PANEL BELOW THE REAR WINDOW REPAIRED AND THE ROOF SHOWS SIGNS OF SURFACE RUST UNDER THE VINYL TOP. THIS IS A COMMON AREA OF REPAIR FOR THESE CARS. IT ALSO HAS A CRACKED DASH PAD AND THE CONTROLS FOR THE A/C AND HEATER NEED TO BE EITHER ADJUSTED OR SOMETHING TO HAVE THE AIR CONTROL THRU THE DUCTING FOR PROPER SELECTION WHERE TO EXIT. RIGHT NOW IT ONLY BLOWS OUT THE BOTTOM IN THE CENTER AND THE DEFROSTER. IT DOES HAVE A COUPLE OF SMALL PAINT SCRATCHES BUT NO DENTS. THE BUMPERS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION BUT COULD USE RECHROMING. THE DASH HAS A COUPLE OF ILLUMINATION LIGHT BULBS THAT ARE IN NEED OF CHANGING. OVERALL THE CAR IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN THE SOUTHERN NM AREA WHERE THERE IS VERY LOW HUMIDITY AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN KEPT GARAGED AND COVERED. I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH OF HOW GREAT THIS CAR DRIVES. HANDLES AND HOW RELIABLE IT IS. I WOULD NOT HESITATE DRIVING IT ANYWHERE.
