Watch our video of this amazing 1968 Chevelle, detailing all the hard work that has been put into this classic 1968 Chevelle. Beautiful is the word that comes to mind when we see this 1968 Chevelle built by Velocity Restorations.Detroit Speed suspension, FORGELINE wheels, a little Holley Performance Products, and Baer Brakes...how can can you go wrong with that package?!
Originally brought to Velocity Restorations for some minor electrical issues, in a short amount of time this Chevelle ended up being a full-blown Pro-Touring restoration. As the build went on, added are only the most high-end parts and accessories. From there, they installed the Detroit Speed Stage 3 Suspension Kit on the fully powder-coated chassis, to handle the 525 HP LS3 – and that it does. Over 2000 hours went into the vehicle for bodywork and assembly to achieve an aggressive yet show-winning finish.
