Capable of accommodating every available Chevy powerplant from inline sixes and small-block V-8 up to the hot Mark IV big-block and available in a multitude of body styles, the Chevelle lineup offered something for virtually everyone. On the drag strip, Malcolm Durham and his famous series of “Strip Blazer” Chevelles upheld the Chevy banner and kept it in the public eye despite GM’s self-imposed “official” racing ban. On the street, the first-series Chevelle models of 1964-1967 have always been a popular choice for drag racers, muscle car enthusiasts, and the street-machine crowd; more recently, they have begun receiving the ‘Pro Touring’ touch with equal emphasis placed on braking and handling to match their brutal performance capabilities. Restored and modified in the Pro Touring vein, this first-year 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle coupe is menacing in black on black with complete interior, suspension, and powertrain upgrades while delivering excellent comfort and everyday drivability. In essence, it combines the power of a drag car and the handling of a rally car in a fully functioning and comfortable street machine. Awesome power is delivered by a 572 BBC crate engine with 620 horsepower equipped with a March serpentine-belt drive system and Jet-coated headers feeding a complete Flowmaster exhaust system, with cooling handled by a four-row aluminum radiator. The drivetrain includes a Tremec 5-speed and a new Richmond Gear differential. Suspension upgrades include frame connectors, traction control bars, mono-springs, and custom shocks. Four-wheel discs handle stopping. The interior is fitted with refurbished black leather front bucket and rear bench seats, side and kick panels, and a new headliner. All inner panels are lined with Dynamat for sound and heat control. The floor is covered with low-pile black carpeting. Switches and the shifter are mounted in a custom-built center console. The stock gauges and dash insert panel were replaced with a custom six-gauge AutoMeter panel. An Alpine ALP CDA117 in-dash sound system delivers killer sound, and Vintage A/C system provides comfort. A radar system, remote access, electric windows, door poppers, remote trunk release, and remote electrical cut-off combine to round out this outstanding, highly equipped, and well-finished package.
