Default Finally after 25 years I have a Chevelle again

I found a deal I couldnt pass up, but it was something I did not save up for. I found a 72 Chevelle thats already had a restore job started. The Frame has been blasted and painted. All new lines. New rear quarters installed, new floor and trunk pan installed. Full custom seats (that I dont want, but they look cool and have never been sat in). "rebuilt" 454 engine, th400 and came with a 4 speed transmission (also dont want). Came with a new gauge cluster (round gauges) and a brand new console in the box. This is an AC car and somebody started to make it an SS clone. I found this for $5,500 and like I said I had not saved for it because I am currently almost done redoing my 69 Firebird and have started on my 74 AMX so money was dumped into those. As a way to get it out of my head and know I couldnt get it I called my bank and asked for a non secured loan for the $5,500 and to my surprise they approved it. Next hurdle was the wife... That was a fun thing, but once I got the approval I rented the trailer and made the six hour drive (one way). Now the car is home and in the planning stages. We have picked a color and the winner is black Cherry. Now I just have to get some factory bucket seats and start buying all the parts I need.

Welcome aboard! And thank you for signing up. I've always wanted a Chevelle SS! I like the bodystyle of the 1972. How is the project coming along?
