I just got back from Greg`s .....we finished the entire chassis (Minus the Power Steering). All fluids are filled and the body is now ready to be lowered onto the chassis.

The weekend pics....















She is covered until my next trip.

Wow, attention to detail is spectacular. It's great that the parts are available, and your knowledge of what they are and how they are installed makes this so special. Especially stuff like the emissions control systems which were usually the first things people took off when they got their new muscle car.

Pat,

The parts are getting more and more difficult to find. This L78 Chevelle has been waiting its turn for restoration for over 8 years. This Chevelle has lived a good life - the parts are some of the Best I have seen.

Thanks for the kind words

Dan

In recent weeks I was able to contact and began a great relationship with Chevelle owner number 3.
It's always fun listening to the cars history and stories told by the previous owners.....as you can tell by these pictures that this was the fun 1980's era. SO COOL











Dan
