650 Horsepower Chevelle SS Proves its Never too Late

It starts with a bit of a sob story. Over 40 years ago, a young man totals a 1971 Chevelle through no fault of his own. Fortunately he survived the head-on collision that was a result of his being forced into oncoming traffic by a panel van. However, he never got over losing the muscle car. But now, with the help of Classic Car Studio Speed Shop, that now-older man is finally living out his dream with a 650 horsepower Chevrolet Chevelle SS.

Classic Car Studio started with a bare frame when bringing the dream to life. They added in a supercharged LS9 engine sitting on a modified MRC Fab chassis. The Chevelle has an independent rear suspension, and so many other modifications and details that it will make your head spin as fast as the smoking rear tyres. The interior features custom tan leather and a carbon fibre dash. The Chevelle also benefits from a custom Kicker sound system.

While this particular vehicle may be the finally realised dream of one individual, Classic Car Studio has plenty of other drool-worthy projects to check out. Whatever your flavour, they can satisfy that itch—whether there’s a sad tale behind it or not.
