1968 Chevelle LS3

1968 Chevelle with LS3 Engine

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.
