1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Pro Touring Special!
- General Information
New in our showroom:
This true 138 Vin coded 1968 Chevelle SS that was is a completely new build custom PTTM Pro touring special that's loaded with special custom parts. This car is a true one of a kind, and no costs were spared to build it. If you have special requests or want additional options, feel free to contact us. You can also reserve the car now, so you won't miss out on it. The base car was a completely stripped to its bare metal and is a real SS (Vin code 138) big block SS Chevelle, so not a clone. The body, all floors, the chassis are rust free and in original condition.
The car was then equipped with a complete new 12 bolt heavy-duty rear axle with new internals, new heavy-duty axles, new bearings, new differential with 3.73 gears, all new performance suspension system by Speed tech performance and with tubular new front upper and lower A arms in front and a ladder bar pro suspension set up at the back with new coil over dual adjustable Q1a shocks. All new bushings, new upper and lower control arms and new stabilizers and All star sub frame connectors. And a brand-new power steering close ratio steering box with new pump and lines was installed for that tight feel at cornering.
The complete underside was also blasted to bare metal and is now painted in a factory style satin black and all looks factory new on the underside as well as top. The car was then equipped with 4 wheel slotted and vented disc brakes by Willwood and all new brake lines, master power cylinder, and new wheel bearings. The complete fuel system is also front to back brand new with a custom-made stainless fuel tank.
The body and engine bay were then painted in a 2 stage original GM red metallic color and polished to a super smooth shine and gloss. A complete new Vinyl top is installed and all the cars trim, bumpers, chrome pieces, head light bezels and al other trim pieces and emblems are new. The combination of the paint and the black and chrome details are simply stunning. The car's its complete drivetrain was also carefully chosen and as we just don't like a modern style LS type of engine in a real classic muscle car, as that just takes away the true spirit of owning a true classic muscle car, a complete new build Chevy Big block was Pro-build for the car.
It's a stroked Gen V 454cui to 496 stroked engines with all new internals and Patriot performance alu heads and custom-made coated headers, a custom grind performance camshaft, high flow oil pump, forged pistons and all the goodies you could want to have a fantastic and very powerful engine. The engine puts out a stunning 620HP! And comes with a dyno sheet to prove it. There are only around 1500 test miles on the car so all the bugs and little problems a new build car can have been out! This baby is fast! More than 25000,- was invested in the engine and trans alone.
Then the engine and engine bay were dressed with loads of expensive custom details such as custom-made valve covers and air intake, billet serpentine belt and pulley system, an alu radiator with dual electric fans for perfect cooling of the monster and what else not. And last but not least a complete new front to back, hand made, exhaust system was installed with an amazing sound. The transmission is also a completely new Pro build Performance Turbo Hydromatic 400 automatic trans with all new internals and a custom billet 3500rpm high stall converter combined with a shift kit to get the power to the rear axles via a brand new balanced performance drive shaft. No used parts here at all! All is new!
The interior car is also completely new! And before work started there the interior was covered in heat and sound protective material and the floors were all painted as well. The new and very comfortable Corbeau bucket seats were re-upholstered in custom black leather with suede inserts, and the back seat was treated the same way. All new carpet, headliner, new door panels, new emblems and a custom floor console were also installed. The dash was also taken out of the car and completely build up with new components out of the shop of Detroit digital, and a custom steering wheel by billet specialties was installed on the brand-new tilt steering column. All old wiring was removed and a complete front to back new custom-made wiring system was installed, front to back.
Of course a brand-new Vintage airco and heat system was installed to keep things warm and cold when needed and Alpine stereo system was installed with subwoofers in the trunk in a beautifully custom designed trunk lay-out that has the same colors and details as the interior. The radio you see on the pictures looks classic, but behind it's ol'school facing hides a modern system with MP3 and blue tooth connections. Everything in the interior is very stylish and brand new, again, no used parts here.
To top things of, things like a steel Cowl induction hood was installed with new hinges and the all the outside trim were as stated before coated in satin black. All new custom billet specialties wheels were ordered with 20 inch at the back and 18 inch at the front to give the car that great looking staggered stance, At the rear you will find 285/35new Falken Azenis tires and at the front 255/30 to make this baby handle and perform at its max.
No costs were spared to build a very special Pro touring style car, and as stated almost everything you see is just brand new and besides all that, this car was build on the base of an expensive true original 138 coded SS car, not a Malibu slant 6. There is a binder full of invoices that alone account for a 140k investment in parts (without the car) and that doesn't even include the paint, the new vinyl top and all the PTTM work that is performed on the car. All in all, we estimate the build alone has cost around 200k, easy.
So if you are looking for something really special, that was build with the best of best in components, handles, steers and brakes like any modern-day car, but has the looks and internals of a true classic muscle car, than this might well be the car for you. The fact that its also one of the most beautiful Chevy Chevelle's ever designed, the 1968 model year, makes it even more desirable.
Now keep in mind that you just can't build a car of this caliber cheap, so don't expect a cheap-ass car here. But we have kept the price very interesting for someone who understand the magnitude of building a car like this. The costs of all its parts alone without the labor goes well over 100k, then comes labor (thousands of hours) very expensive paint and paint job, and the many, many final test hours and fine-tuning, and you can understand that this car is no ordinary car. It's completely ready when it hits our showroom floor and doesn't need any work at all.
All in all this stunning looking beauty and a piece of art in itself, we will make more pictures when the car is ready and a walk around video as well. The pictures you see below are not of the finished car, but some are design study pictures and some are of partially finished details. So keep in mind that details still might be changed between the pics and the finished product! And like with all our quality cars, this car will be completely serviced and inspected and tested before it will be for sale in our showroom, so its turn key when you get it!
