1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 Restoration at V8 Speed & Resto Shop
This cool 1966 Chevelle is the second for it’s owner Larry Frees, who might be familiar as the caretaker of the “Mr. Chevy” 1955 Chevy gasser and hauler ramp truck.     He had a Marina Blue ‘66 many years ago, and this car will serve to be the “jumping off point” from where his old ‘66 left off.    Larry provided us with the beginning of the restoration story as it unfolds in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop.

This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle had undergone a complete restoration, but the customer was not happy with the way the car drove, so he sent it to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for final details.   The V8 Crew was tasked with fixing leaks, clutch issues, and other mechanical details, and the customer expanded the list to include a custom firewall, and eventually a high-powered Fast Times Motorworks big Chevy V8.   It's a very cool car that will be great fun to drive!

1976 Chevrolet Corvette Upgrades at V8 Speed & Resto Shop
This 1976 Chevrolet Corvette came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop seeking some modern upgrades for improved performance.   It already had a Chevrolet Performance ZZ2 crate engine making 345 HP, but the V8 team added Holley fuel injection for increased reliability and performance.   Then they swapped out the 4-speed manual transmission for a Tremec TKO 600 5-speed from Modern Driveline and a hydraulic clutch.  These provide an overdrive gear for highway cruising, and a smooth, easy operation.  Brakes are improved significantly with a Hydratech hydraulic brake booster.  Vintage Air A/C was added to keep the occupants comfortable.  The V8 Interior Shop went to work recovering the seats and installing new door panels to freshen the inside, and the black paint was treated to a polish job.   It's a slick ride that far outperforms the original, and is great fun to drive!

1969 Chevrolet Camaro EFI and Suspension Upgrades at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

Some restored cars look completed, but still require extensive refinement and tuning to be road-ready.    In this case, our customer had this sweet 1969 Camaro restored, but there are always areas to improve the performance and reliability of car like this.   The V8 Speed & Resto Shop team will be installing a Holley Sniper EFI system on the 396, and will also be adding a Detroit Speed suspension upgrade along with fixing a few other items.   It's a beautiful Camaro, and we're happy for the opportunity to work on it for our customer.
