1973 Chevrolet Chevelle

I have always loved this body style since they ran in NASCAR in 1973. “The forgotten Chevelles”, I call them. I am a big guy and I fit in this car real comfortably. Looking for a new project and I found this. I bought it from a young man who hadn’t finished it but it had a lot of desirable parts and pieces – mildly massaged 454 cu.in. big block Chevy engine, 700r4 automatic transmission, ceramic coated – long tube headers, new interior, pretty straight body, 4 wheel disk brakes, positraction rear end, new BFG tires. I have since straightened the body and had it painted, finished and tightened things up, got the new TA wheels, new exhaust, custom console, SS dash gauge set and a bunch of other upgrades on my weekend projects. The Chevelle drives great and is spacious and comfortable – I love it.

    Nice looking car, Michael.

    I own a 73 Hurst Olds. It’s it a love or hate it body style. But I like it.
    Especially the way the GM 73 A body’s ride.

    You are right, I never paid much attention to these cars, but you did a very nice job with this one. I particularly like the way it looks around the grille. Great, subtle job of styling this, and I like the wheels a lot too!

    You have one very nice ride enjoy it! I have been working on a 73 olds 442 for way to many years, the body style is almost impossible to find parts for, it is really nice to see one looking this good!

    I had a Laguna S3 with a 454, it’d pass anything but a gas station 😀 (loved the swivel bucket seats)

    Great GM, my best friend had one and I remembering tuning it up with him, it was a little time consuming.

    Congratulations. These were really nice cars. I own a ’77 ElCamino, which looks like your car from the side. Only the 350cid engine, but I installed a set of two 500cfm quad carburators.

    Nice, I am in the process of redoing a 1973 myself. Parts are had to find for these. Looking for the connecting piece for the trim around the side quarter windows.
