Rare Chevrolet Chevelle Convertible with the fabulous engine 454 ci.1969 

 

The Chevelle was introduced in the autumn of 1963 for the 1964 millesimal. In 1968, it received its first major transformation, the car goes through the esthetic department and receives a brand new design, perhaps the most beautiful and individual in its history, so the car reaches its full maturity. To reinforce this statement, just look at the 1969 sales figures, they are the best in history. However, its 454 ci engine made it an indomitable beast with is 450 horsepower .This version configured in that way the Chevelle took only 6.5 seconds to go 100 kilometers per hour and covered the quarter mile in 14.5 seconds.

The car would only gain in power over the next few years. The V8 396 ci was going to give way to a bigger, more powerful, more gourmand, briefer block that was more disproportionate in every respect, the famous V8 454 ci. Our chevelle was delivered new in the USA on November 1, 1969 and completely restored before being imported into France in 2018. Our châssis 136679B360277  is part of the second generation of Chevelle. Its V8 396 ci engine was replaced by the famous V8 454 ci producing about 450 horsepower. With is 7.4 liters the 4-speed mechanical gearbox match  perfectly. Sound+ couple = real happyness. It is difficult to know how many convertibles were produced but their production was limited, very few cars drive in Europe today.

It will be delivered after a major mechanical inspection in our workshop, French registration and an expertise in approved value.
