Flashy muscle cars are fun, and polished cruisers are nice, but there’s really nothing cooler than a well-done sleeper. No gimmicks, no frills and no posturing; just presence and power — LOTS of power. This exceptionally clean Chevelle 300 is a subdued stunner that mixes 489 cubic inches of aluminum V8 with a professional grade driveline, thoroughly updated chassis components and ultra conservative aesthetics. And if you’re looking for a unique classic that’s road ready, show-ready and just plain battle-ready, it’s the perfect way to prowl the scene and bruise a few egos!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Featured in the March/April, 2003 edition of Chevelle World Magazine, this sublime sedan is an intentionally low-key take on the fundamentals of every hard-edged muscle car: tough looks, sturdy components, reduced weight and tons of power! The car’s body-off, rotisserie restoration, which wrapped in the Spring of 2001, began with complete disassembly and a full media blast. Once that profile was clean and ready to work, Chevelle enthusiast David Garber supplemented new floors and a repaired trunk pan with a repaired rear valance, repaired wheelhouses and fresh quarter patches. With the car’s mostly-original metal solid and smooth, stark white 2-stage was accented with restored, original trim. And today, this Chevy rolls as one top-notch resto-mod that’s clean, reliable and extremely focused.

ENGINE

Since the enthusiast who built this car has a background in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, he knew exactly what he wanted when it came to motivation. He also knew exactly who he wanted to provide that motivation. After a quick trip to the Chevy store to source an all-aluminum GM Performance Parts ZL-1 427, he headed to Clarksville Virginia’s Kevin Blanks Performance with a blank check in hand. And, while exact horsepower numbers have been left to competitors’ imaginations, we do know the engine produces 10 to 1 compression on pump gas and can raise the performance stakes even higher with the addition of a little race fuel. At the top of the 489 cubic inch big block, a fully adjustable, 750cfm Bo Laws Competition 4-barrel bridges the gap between stainless fuel lines, a polished and decaled air cleaner, and a lightweight aluminum intake. That air/fuel mixture floods aluminum, rectangle-port heads, which hide a full roller valvetrain under stamped, Chevrolet Orange rocker covers. That valvetrain is propelled by a balanced and blueprinted rotating assembly, which spins a Crower stroker crank, Crower rods and JE pistons beneath a proven Comp roller cam. That assembly gets sparked by high performance MSD ignition, which sequences fire through an AC Delco distributor and thick Taylor plug wires. Below those wires, Hooker Super Competition headers make quick work of spent gases. At the front of those headers, old school pulleys spin an aluminum water pump between modern power steering, a coated Edelbrock fuel pump and a reproduction Delco battery. And cooling comes courtesy of a factory-spec radiator, which funnels anti-freeze through pliable GM hoses and a Chevy Orange water neck.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

There are two very specific reasons this fire-breathing resto-mod was constructed from a post sedan as opposed to a commonplace hardtop. The first is a simple, lightweight body. The second is a full perimeter frame that can accommodate a wide variety of big block drivetrains. Speaking of that frame, this Chevelle’s entire chassis has been fully powder-coated. The big 427 spins a proven Borg Warner Super T10 4-speed: a professionally built unit that was donated by a NASCAR Xfinity stock car. That gearbox utilizes a 4-inch aluminum driveshaft to twist a Detroit Locker differential and 3.73 gears around a Currie 9-inch axle. That stellar drivetrain rolls in a fully powder-coated suspension, which benefits from Hotchkis springs, Hotchkis control arms, Hotchkis sway bars and quality Bilstein shocks. Stops come quickly thanks to two power-assisted factory drums and two power-assisted Master Power discs. Spent gases are managed by 3-inch, coated pipes, which center an H-shaped crossover in front of coated Flowmaster mufflers. And power pounds the pavement through 15-inch, body-matched steelies, which lap 255/60 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around traditional dog dish hubcaps.

INTERIOR

Decked in brilliant Medium Blue trim, this Chevy’s simplistic interior has been wrapped in Dynamat and returned to factory-fresh condition. The car’s wide bench seats display piped vinyl covers that fit without any significant wrinkles or creases. In front of those thrones, a modernist dash hangs a full array of factory telemetry above a cool knee-knocker tach. At the sides of that dash, ornate door skins center chrome handles in front of factory armrests. A tight headliner, clean carpet and a curved shifter frame those components. In front of the driver, a sporty steering wheel laps a tilting column. And behind the passengers, a restored trunk hides a full-size spare tire.

When it comes to performance, durability and sheer intimidation, nothing beats a good old GM workhorse. And thanks to a high quality, performance-minded restoration, this stunning Chevelle 300 wraps a killer drivetrain in a capable chassis and precise aesthetics. Seldom do you find a well-done, traditional classic that’s infused with this much hot rod swagger. Think about it: 489 cubic inches of aluminum V8, a NASCAR-spec 4-speed, a massaged chassis and a solid, mostly-original body. No serious hot rodder would pass on an opportunity like this!
