1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Paint and Maintenance Updates at V8 Speed & Resto Shop

This 1966 Chevelle came to our shop to have some maintenance and a few cosmetic fixes.    The distributor in the big block Chevy V8 had corroded, so we shipped it back to MSD Ignition for a freshen-up.    There was some weirdness in the steering column, so we had it waranteed by Ididit to like-new operation again.     We also made a new electric fuel pump mounting bracket and addressed some leaks and some new brakes. 

Outside, the '66 rolled in with a 4" cowl induciton hood that made it a little hard to see the road, so our crew installed a steel 2" version for more style and less "race" appearance.    The color is House Of Kolor TruBlue Kandy and it really looks sharp in the sun.

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.
