How do you even begin to describe an all-out awesome build like this 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle 454 Procharged? Do you start with the sleek paint? The huge investment in straight bodywork? The upgraded leather interior? The supercharged big block pumping out serious street-eating muscle? There are just too many great details on this restoration build that you\'re just going to need to read all of this.
There was a serious investment in fully restoring this car, and that was less than 6,800 miles ago. So you see cleanliness everywhere, and it starts with the slick paint. The burnt orange is deep, rich, and so well done that you almost can\'t resist running your fingers down its flanks just to see if it\'s still wet. And there\'s a terrific metallic element that really radiates in the sunlight. This kind of quality shine is a central theme of this coupe. The bumpers look like mirrors, and all the trim is bright - including the special 1968 full length line that starts at the headlights and dips low into the rockers. But just because this coupe has been pampered, doesn\'t mean it has lost its aggressive muscle car attitude. There are touches of Super Sport style nicely integrated in places like the dual power dome hood and the blackout lower body section. Polished American Racing wheels with 17/18 inch front/rear stance add to both the car\'s outstanding shine and overall muscle car appeal.
The interior has the same freshness of quality as the exterior, and the black is a stylish choice against the outside orange paint. They upgraded this one in the right places, including leather upholstery with modern well-bolstered bucket seats up front. But they also kept the vintage pieces you love, like the center console with horseshoe shifter. In fact, you can tell it\'s a detail-oriented build. It\'s built for modern enjoyment with an upgraded AM/FM Bluetooth radio and upgraded stereo speakers featuring a JBL 1000 watt amp. It has even been outfitted with air conditioning, though it is not currently hooked up. This has an upgraded wood and chrome sports steering wheel, and the gauges have been upgraded to a full AutoMeter Pro-Comp package with large speedo and tach.
When you pop the hood, there\'s a true beast inside. But it\'s also a beauty thanks to the low mileage freshness. In fact, dig a little deeper to really see the details that tell you this is a quality build. Not only are the inner fenders color-matched, but they are custom contoured for this special motor. And the block even matches the exterior paint, too! This is a 454 cubic-inch V8, and while big block power is enough for many people, this one really takes it to a whole new level with a Procharger supercharger! You\'ve also got a Holley intake, long tube headers, and a Holley carburetor specially built by Carburetor Solutions Unlimited to be optimized with this supercharger. This monster motor is also supported by the right components, including an Optima red top battery, MSD ignition setup, steel braided fuel lines, AN fittings, and a new radiator with dual electric fans. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit, and they even installed a new one with this build that also includes a new torque converter. That feeds a 12-bolt 4.10 rear end for powerful take-offs. This is the kind of setup that can be a true dragstrip star, and it also knows how to lay some serious rubber down on your favorite two-lane blacktop. But it\'s a full overall build that can be enjoyed for more tame time, too, thanks to power steering, grippy ZR-rated tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes.
