CHEVELLE L79 m.y 1968

Frank shows us with true pride of passionate a "must", a 1968 Chevelle L79, a lot of work and a lot of effort to bring back to life what he considers one of the best Chevelle. The car was found during one of his research looking for an SS, the particularity but he took over and here the decision to restore this L79.
The engine was in good condition and only a good starting point was enough to make its 350 hp still roar. Frank has overhauled the gearbox that boasts the 4-speed option! And to complete it all, he has a Hurst lever that stands out in the middle of the bench-seat. Complete the work the original exhaust that appears curved from under the bumper.
Externally the Chevy was not set very well (‘cause cloned SS), Frank wanted to prepare it by having to dismantle it all. First thing was to mount its original hood without the air scoop crowning, eliminated the chrome moldings of the SS proceeded to prepare the bodywork and give it the original color that was a very special two tone: Teal Blue (lower) and Island blue (upper) a fantastic color that gives a sense of peace (like a duck in a pond) get at that car that give few sense of  peace. Changed the grid with an original chrome not black (ss).
Set orange turn lights instead of the white ones (SS option), removed from the rear of the black band leaving the body color on the plate where the long badge was added. Frank has put the original rims as simple and colorful as the bodywork, tires with red line make it so sporty. A simple car without too many frills with a latent charm of those who only love the Chevelle can appreciate.

The car internally was well set up, bench-seat, deluxe interiors that are recognized by the panels with chrome and satin finish line, black and gray for the upholstery fabrics. Dashboard complete with standard central rev counter, seat belts, radio and air conditioning.
Hurst lever that stands out in the middle of the bench-seat. Complete the work the original exhaust that appears curved from under the bumper. 

For Frank the best Chevelle ever made.

RetroAutosEnEscala: CHECKER, taxi de Nueva York (1980)

RetroAutosEnEscala: CHECKER, taxi de Nueva York (1980): Miniatura en escala 1:43 realizada por IXO para la entrega nro. 2 de la colecciòn “Taxis del Mundo” editada en Argentina en 2018 ...


Frank has prepared a special car, a Malibu SS m.y 1965, let's say almost a rarity. Restored remaining as faithful as possible to the original, Frank, however, has added  some details.

Painted in Ermine white, he has prepared the interiors (Medium Blue Pattern Imitation Leather) in a metallic blue with a dark blue central part in fake leather, an aluminum center console and a "muncie" gear lever on a three-speed manual transmission.

The particular thing, however, is the engine, Frank wanted to put a 396 instead of the 327 that should have been there, Frank wanted to have in his hands that single Malibu SS Z16 convertible built in 1965 and even if so a clone is a clone of the all special!
Frank then put special 16-inch wheels with lowered tires and disc brakes to stop this beast properly.
Now the Chevelle is ready, the surf in the back seat seems to announce that the holidays are coming, bringing Frank back to that far summer in 1965 where showing off this "muscle" along the beaches was a source of pride.

Oldsmobile 88 1955

Frank show us to this wonderful Oldsmobile Super 88 1955 convertible, a compact and elegant car with a charm to sell.

The two oval spokes with the mounted lights in the center of the mask make the nose as dynamic as the nose of a spaceship. All in clear construction ambiance 50 years where space and the future are the thinking of all American

A splendid car that shows off on the driveway of a house in the south of the States

The car came out of Frank's hands, perfect in every detail; at the rear wheel arches the fender skirt that connects the wheel with the bodywork making the car slender upward as if it were taking off, perfect chromed parts  that makes it solar.

Skilfully colored two tones in the "flying colors" style of Oldsmobile with the blue Bimini and the Polar white, just as much for the interiors as double the double tone, including the dashboard. 

Under the hood the V8 324 c.i Rocket painted again in green, scratches with its 202 HP an engine that for the moment has burnt the asphalt! Frank is enthusiastic and reminds us that this car was one of the forerunners of the "muscle cars" that will arrive a decade from there.

This model / year was a real success, about 600 thousand cars that will be a record for the Oldsmobile brand for the ten years after '55 and that for the joy of Frank another has been saved from oblivion!
