Briefly about the project
What appeared to be a perfect Resto Mod on paper at auction turned out to be a bit of a nightmare for the owner of this 1970 Resto Mod Chevelle SS. After purchasing at auction, we were entrusted with inspecting and addressing issues this vehicle presented. Ranging from missing components, such as the sway bar and parking brake, to properly fixing, installing, fabricating, and redesigning aspects of the vehicle that were flawed from the previous builder. Suspension components that were not correctly addressed resulted in odd driving behavior and rear springs that would come off the vehicle whenever the suspension traveled a certain height. The owner also had concerns about the engine, we further inspected and concluded the LS engine in the vehicle was faulty and we installed another one. When installing the new LS engine we corrected the transmission and engine geometry placement so components would no longer interfere with one another. The end result is a drivable and very enjoyable 1970 Resto Mod Chevelle SS that both looks the part and performs!
