Default '69 Chevelle

Hi guys. I thought I might throw up my latest addition.
Its a real 396/350 SS that I bought out of CT. The car was restored by Nick Lewis out of GA around 2005/6. It comes with the POP, dealer invoice and a buildsheet. It is the original cortez silver, black vinyl top, black bucket interior combo as per the trim tag, and is a M21 and 3.55 posi car. After talking to Nick about the car prior to purchase, he believes it has the original motor in it that has had a larger cam and some other parts and pieces that he likes, installed. It is currently sitting in Jersey ready to be shipped back to Australia.
I have had a few cars in the past but have been looking for a real, documented SS 69 for a little while now and I'm sure I will be very happy with it once I get it back to Australia.

Thanks, Damien.

It must cost a fortune to ship a car to Australia.

Any pics?

Sorry Ryan, took me a few minutes to work out I needed the pics in photobucket! Sorted now.
Yes it can be expensive. I usually ship out of Ca, which is certainly cheaper than NJ. Depending on whether you do it yourself or pay someone it can cost you anywhere from the low 2k's to an all in service from some over here that do it regularly that can run you up to 3.5k. This is plus 10% tax on the cost of the car.

Damien,

I know the car and I know Nick Lewis..... Nick has a knack of restoring nice Chevelles. I'm sure you'll be happy with it.

Thanks guys, appreciate the kind words.
Dan, that is reassuring that you know Nick and also the car. I have seen your restorations both on here and TC and they are works of art.
