Default 1966 Chevelle-making it my own.

Edit:before and after so far



Only had the car 3 weeks so haven't done much.

So far on the outside, I've put smaller ralleye center caps on it, waxed it and changed the antenna. And I have no pics of any of it yet lol. Well, here's after the wax anyway:



Inside I changed the rear speakers, with help from my daughter of course. Much louder now and clearer.



She absolutely loves the car. And for that reason I ordered a rear seat belt to strap her seat down. Rear seat belts were an option in 66, luckily original floors and the bolts were threaded right into them:





While the seat was out, was able to check out the wheel tubs. Everything looked good:







Under the hood, cleaned it up a bit and ordered the correct fan shroud and decal. Will be throwing that stuff on when it gets here. Ran the block numbers, apparently it's the "hi-po" 283 with a whopping 220 hp. But, it does have full dual exhaust, Holley 4 barrel and edelbrock intake so I'll say at least 2 fiddy now. It's actually not too bad even though it sounds horrible lol. Car should weigh around 32-3300lbs.







Went to a local show and took home a top 10 trophy, wasn't expecting it tbh.

Yup, that's them. Look much better on a midsize car. I traded my dad my deep ones. This winter I'm doing all new stainless trim up front and front disc brakes. Drums aren't bad unless you have to panic stop.

Nice Chevelle!
That engine looks out of place being orange... It would look way better if it was painted as a Pontiac engine color to match the car...

Middle '60s Chevelles are a great body style. Looks like it's going to be a fun project car for you and your daughter.
