1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS496 Restoration at V8 Speed & Resto Shop

A 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle with 496 cubic inches of big-block power and style!

This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle arrived in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop dressed in a sparkling green "bass boat" style paint scheme, with add-ons and gauges all over the place.   The owner wanted a smooth, clean, powerful cruiser that could hold it's own on the street or strip, so the V8 team enlisted the help of Fast Times Motorworks to build a 496 cube big block Chevy making over 500 HP and nearly 600 pounds of torque for power.   The entire car was stripped, new panels added, and a restored chassis rides on Global West suspension, Vintage Wheel Works wheels, and stops with Baer brakes.     It was a hit at the SEMA show, and is a fun car to drive today!    Click READ MORE to see the photos and videos!

1969 Pontiac Firebird Carb and Dyno Tune at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

1969 VW Bus Engine Swap and Suspension Modificaitons at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This 1969 Volkswagen Bus looks sweet, but is in need of some tuning and maintenance.  The owner wishes the V8 Speed Team to perform a complete tune up, add some Wilwood disc brakes, perform some paint repairs, and change out the "camper" windows for regular glass sliders.  A new suspension system will allow the VW to lay low, but drive safely at ride-height going down the road.  New wiring will keep the Type 2 safe as well.
