Chevelle: The Iron Rat

I’ve decided to take a bit of a different direction with the rest of this month’s White Hall Drag-O-Way coverage by focusing more on singular vehicles. The details are what makes a car, so why not show more of them? And that brings us to today. This beautiful Chevelle started life as a standard SS with a 396, but now a 454 resides under the hood.

Hit the jump for more on this classic.

As you can tell from this picture the paint is about as good as it gets. Plus, I just love hood pins.

One of my favorite things about the muscle car era was all the badging that came with the cars. Cowl Induction, Air grabber, Shaker, etc. It seems every company really went that extra step to set their car apart from the competition. Sadly, those little extra details are often lost on modern cars.

The Chevelle loudly and proudly stated what it was all over the car.

I suppose most who dare try and run against one of these saw a lot of the SS badge.

Lastly we will take a peak at the interior. Notice all the instrumentation to monitor the engine’s vitals. This car is made for running.

Check back later in the week for more from the cruise-in, and don’t forget to check out the White Hall Drag-O-Way site to see where these guys are getting together next.
