Car of the Month, September 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle is owned by Michelle & Ryan Blackly of Snow Camp NC. With all the SS396 cars leading the way in 1968 this little 327 just might be stronger than you think? This car was bought new at Jim Connell Chevrolet in Anderson SC and the Blackly’s are the 3rd owners.

This good looking Chevelle was ordered with a 325 horsepower 327 mated to a M21 4 speed close ratio Muncie. A factory ordered 3:73 posi makes up the drive train. Pretty quick in the quarter mile? Yes at Z-max raceway in Concord NC it made several passes down the quarter at a best of 14.15. Note that it is sitting on those G-70 14 bias ply tires! Get some slicks and watch out!

Keep an eye out for this one because it is almost show perfect and with only 54,000 miles on the clock no wonder! And by the way that’s the original paint you see there!
