Lot #650.1 - This hardtop Chevelle was originally sold new on July 27, 1966 by Clements Chevrolet, an 87-year-old Chevrolet dealership out of Rochester, MN. Keeping the classic look of its original color combination, of Cameo Beige over Light Fawn interior, this Chevelle was beautifully restored and upgraded by more than doubling its original power. That power comes from a 355ci V8, dyno-tested to produce 340hp and over 400 ft/lbs of torque. All that torque is then transferred to a Muncie 4-speed manual with a Hurst shifter for smooth shifting. Putting a modern touch on this classic hot rod and improving all-around performance is a beautiful set of Boss two-tone 20" rear and 18" front 5-spoke aluminum wheels with Nitto 555 tires. With great sound from Pioneer stereo and dual exhaust, this car would be right at home cruising the town or going to a car show. Documenting this car's history and performance stats, are copies of the Owner's Protection Plan and a copy of the Protect-O-Plate, as well as dyno tests of the engine.
