Cars like this amazing 1966 Chevelle are so nice that they stand above the
regular car show crowd. The details shine through, the level of workmanship
makes even nice amateur cars look shabby, and, well, when you show up with
this car you can pretty much expect to take home the big trophy. It's just
The silver bodywork is perfect for this low-profile rod, because it allows
all the details to really shine through. That isn't to say the paint and
sheet metal aren't exquisite, because they are, but it means that onlookers
aren't blown away simply with color. This is a car that invites people to
look closer and spend some time admiring everything it has to offer.
Laser-straight panels, excellent and even gaps, and crisp detailing like
the character line that runs through the quarter panels all make this a car
that will stand out in a crowd no matter what color they're painted.
Subtlety is an art, and the guy who built this car is a master of it. Note
how there are no distortions in the reflections, no orange peel in the
paint, and no breaks in the flow of the bodywork; that doesn't just happen
by accident. It's the difference between assembling a car and crafting a
car, and the two are miles apart in terms of time, money, and effort.
Under the hood, well, it's a different story, now featuring 502 cubic
inches of big block Chevy as the star of the show. The inner fenders and
firewall have been smoothed and finished to the same high standards as the
body, providing the ideal canvas for the industrial-strength engine. Modern
upgrades include a billet accessory drive system that uses a serpentine
belt for reliability, along with power steering, power brakes and modern
A/C. A massive aluminum radiator with a custom stainless shroud keeps all
502 cubic inches ice cold no matter what you're doing, and it rumbles
through a set of beautifully crafted ceramic-coated headers.
Underneath, it's still a Chevelle, but there's a lot of new stuff,
including a 6-speed manual transmission feeding a beautifully finished
12-bolt rear axle. The front suspension has been heavily reworked, now
using coil-over shocks and polished A-arms, along with a massive sway bar.
In back, it's largely stock, but boxed control arms, heavy-duty springs,
another big sway bar, and a set of adjustable air shocks effectively put
down the power without adversely affecting ride quality. Baer supplied a
complete set of disc brakes fore and aft that look dazzling behind those
gorgeous American Racing wheels with Goodyear RS-A radials that give it the
The interior is a superb blend of original, restored components and custom
pieces that work like the exterior to create something new. The seats and
door panels have been upholstered in reproduction covers, and the center
console remains in place, albeit augmented by a 6-speed shifter. The
controls for the Vintage Air A/C system replace the originals in the dash,
and there's a powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo system in the original
location. The trunk uses correct spatter finish paint and a new mat, and
the battery has been relocated for better weight distribution. There's also
a matching spare aluminum wheel and tire, necessary to clear the larger
brake rotors in case worse comes to worst.
So I feel sorry for all the other guys with their nice cars that will show
up next to this one at the next cruise night. Cars like this redefine the
scale, and even a novice can see how nice this car really is. On the other
hand, it will be you behind the wheel and going up to the podium to accept
the trophy, because this is one killer Chevelle. Beautifully executed and
wonderfully subtle (if a 502 big block can be such a thing), this is a
great car for the guy who wants the best of both worlds. Call today!
American Aston Martin? '66 Malibu: /BIG MUSCLE
• ENZO MORALES
A long wheelbase, v8 or v12 power, front engine/rear drive configuration,
and a sport-tuned suspension with four comfy seats inside. That ladies and
gentlemen is the recipe for any good grand touring car. Modern automobiles
like the Mercedes-Benz CL63, BMW M6 and the Bentley Continental GT are
perfect examples of this. How about a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu though
- what about that? When released in 1966, this 2nd generation Chevelle was
nothing more than a mid-priced, nicely appointed people mover with some
decent styling. However now, some 47 years later, owner Enzo Morales has
transformed this particular car into a jaw-dropping, hardcore styled road
burner that is just as happy running the super-slab at triple digits as it
is carving up your favorite back road.

1970 Chevelle: Refined Muscle - /BIG MUSCLE
When it comes to muscle cars technology can be a double-edged sword. On the
one hand it can enhance all aspects of a vehicles drivability, but on the
other, it can strip the soul from a car in no time flat. Few people have
been able to blend new technology, luxury and speed into a package that
just flat-out works. Mark Bachman however is the exception. With a stunning
interior, loads of grunt and just about every modern convenience you could
ask for, his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle has managed to blur the lines between
old and new.
1973 Chevrolet Chevelle: Bank Robber's Special -- /BIG MUSCLE
For its season finale BIG MUSCLE heads to the mean streets of Trenton, NJ
to meet up with Sean Rich and his road warrior style 1973 Chevrolet
Chevelle. This particular car was constructed with the idea that if one
needed a getaway vehicle for which to rob a bank in, well then... this
would be the perfect candidate. This is not some big dollar, no holds
barred super car, but a ride built by its owner for the purpose of putting
a smile on his face every time the key was turned.
