The owner of this 1964 Chevy Chevelle SS had heard about some of Roadster Shop’s previous builds and sought them out online. To him, the car had sentimental value. He had seen their pro-touring muscle cars and wanted to go that route with his Chevy. He wanted to do it right and take care of the rust and motor issues.
As with most classic vehicles, the A-body eventually started showing its age. Rust had started bubbling up through the paint, and there were mechanical issues as well. The choice was quickly becoming either fix it or sell it. For the owner, getting rid of the ragtop simply was not an option. He decided to ship the Chevelle to the Roadster Shop for repairs and upgrades. Like a lot of builds, the further they dug, the worse things got. The owner decided it was time for his Chevy to become a full-on custom.
