The Chevelle is easily one of the Top 5 best-looking muscle cars. Most of its sisters from that era are boxy, but this one has a few curves plus the sexiest rear end. And we have to say that David Spade has one of the coolest we’ve ever seen.
Sure, you can modify a Chevelle, but for a universally accepted look, it’s best to keep almost everything the way it was. The value is added from perfect paint and expensive parts. So there’s no going wrong with an all-black Chevy, which is like the little black dress of muscle cars.
Barrett Jackson is celebrating its 50th anniversary this month and is throwing a big celebratory auction in Scottsdale. The first 2023 Corvette Z06 is going to be there, but we spotted a custom gem that’s even cooler. This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle restomod comes fully murdered out with not a single chromed or colored piece on it.
The 1968 Chevelle was built at Velocity Restorations in Pensacola, Florida. One of the major highlights is the engine swap to an LS3 with 525 horsepower. The GM crate engine comes with stainless American Racing long-tube headers and a custom stainless steel dual exhaust system with MagnaFlow mufflers, so you know it sounds good.
The perfect body shines like Darth Vader’s helmet, painted in Deep Black with Satin Black stripes. Meanwhile, the custom stroke frame was powder-coated in Satin Black, just like the trim, bumpers, and engine bay. As for the interior, this has black leather seats with red stitching taken from a 2010 Camaro, matched to the doors and dash. They used an Alcantara headliner for this one, as well as a Billet Specialties steering wheel and a Shiftmaster push-button shifter.
Barrett Jackson is sure to get David a lot of money for this beast, just like they did with his 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1. But don’t worry, because he’s got a bunch of other cool rides back home.
Update: David Spade’s awesome machine just sold for $374,000 at the 2022 Scottsdale Auction!
