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.
This Frame Off restored 67 Chevelle is a Monster with a dress on. The
beautiful Blue paint really attracts attention just after you hear the 454
big block sound from a distance. The engine boasts headers, nice cam,
double pumper Holley carb, Edelbrock performance intake manifold, upgraded
ignition, Be Cool Aluminum radiator, Dual Exhaust and plenty more to keep her moving
strong. All this is connected to a 4 speed stick shift transmission that
allows you to rip through every gear. The rake on the car due to the 20
inch rear wheels and 18 inch front wheels makes the car look like is moving
when parked. A great car to any Chevelle Fan!

Featuring a 600 horsepower big block, a
custom suspension, and a classic Marina Blue on Medium Blue color
combination, this nouveau Chevelle Super Sport is one super cool classic
that's ready to rock and roll!
Restored over the course of a decade, this coupe wears an exceptionally
solid body under a cool coat of traditional blue urethane. Naturally, that
body was completely disassembled, massaged into an impressively straight
canvas and expertly detailed to provide a show worthy appearance that's
structured around good panel fitment. Once that fitment was locked in,
carefully sprayed layers of basecoat were topped with a thick clearcoat
shell, and thoroughly buffed into a smooth, flat shine. And currently, as a
piece that's much nicer than any mass-produced survivor from the late 60s,
this hardtop displays a super clean finish on top of a high quality
restoration that'll last for years!
Under this Chevy's hood you'll find a buff 427 that, thanks to JE pistons,
a Competition camshaft and a .030 overbore, pushes roughly 600 horsepower to the car's fat
rear tires. At the top of that hundred octane monster, coated Edelbrocks
utilize a polished air cleaner, braided fuel lines and a high quality
Marshall pressure gauge to slide a perfect air/fuel mixture into a big
Edelbrock intake. That intake, which is cinched to a chrome thermostat
housing and sleeved radiator hoses, rides between custom valve covers and
aluminum Brodix heads that are fitted with high quality roller rocker arms.
Those rockers make good use of hot fire provided by a modern MSD
distributor, which sequences spark between a bright MSD box, a familiar MSD
coil and high performance MSD plug wires. Resultant combustion is
jettisoned through big, aluminized side-pipes via long-tube Hooker headers.
Cooling is provided by a lightweight, aluminum radiator that's anchored to
a beefy Edelbrock water pump and two quick-spinning, electric puller fans.
And charging comes courtesy of a chrome alternator that, along with a
chrome timing chain cover, hangs within an attractive March pulley system.
Behind that thundering 427, a rugged Muncie M21 4-speed sends power to a
narrowed and braced 9-inch that spins a limited slip differential around
stout, 4.10 gears. That surprisingly streetable drivetrain is held off the
ground by a fully rebuilt suspension which mixes modern Wilwood discs and
traditional rear drums with factory power steering, retrofitted coil-overs
and full wheel tubs. And at the corners of the car, 15-inch American Racing
Hoopsters twist 215/70 Hankook H714s in front of 31x18.5 Mickey Thompson
During its restoration, this Chevelle was equipped with a great looking
Medium Blue interior that presents well and shows minimal wear. At the
center of the car, front bucket and rear bench seats are in great shape,
displaying no cracks or annoying rips. In front of those seats, a warp-free
dash supplements bright chrome trim with an Auto Meter Autogage tachometer
and direct-fit, Panasonic tape deck. And in front of the driver, an
attractive Grant GT steering wheel spins a thick black rim around bright
If you're in the market for a no excuses pavement pounder with an
unbeatable combination of style and performance, this '67 Super Sport is
your kind of car! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for

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.
