1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Restomod
Introduced on September 26th, 1963, the Chevelle would live a short life only lasting until 1977. During that short run, it was offered in many different body styles, everything from a two-door coupe to a four-door wagon. In 1966, just three years after its birth, the Chevelle was redesigned, and the SS model became an instant fan favorite. Only a year later, the SS was redesigned again, with the ’66 body style only lasting for a year-long production; thus, the value of the car gained traction in the collector car community and continues to grow in popularity in the hot rod and custom world. Taking a stock body and greatly enhancing its value, the professionals at Ultra Motor Sports in Fort Wayne, Indiana completely transformed this 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS into the ultimate Restomod build.
A complete ground-up build by noted pro shop Ultra Motorsports, this 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is the recipient of a restomod transformation that would take over three years from start to finish and was completed the summer of 2022. Starting with a rust-free donor body, this Chevelle was transformed into a menace haunting any other build or contender that dare dwell in its presence. Trying to keep the look as original as possible, the body was hardly modified, and its stance was only improved by being slightly lowered. The lifeline in this build would be a massive 6.2-liter supercharged LSA crate engine that produces a rippling 560 horsepower to the rear wheels, more than enough to get its driver in some late-night trouble. Attached to the engine would be an upgraded custom-built Billet Specialties Tru Trac serpentine belt system, which plays an essential role in powering the alternator, power steering pump, added air-conditioning and upgraded water pump. Other notable parts are the custom fuel tank made by Rick’s Tanks of Texas and the custom aluminum radiator by Ron Davis. The guys at Ultra Motor Sports spared no expense while constructing this build and made sure the engine was backed by the most trusted in the business, so they installed a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission with a twin-disc clutch. The high wind of the supercharger and stainless-steel exhaust creates an alluring sound to those admiring and a spine-chilling sound to those contemplating challenging this ground-up build. The custom, maroon-painted body was placed upon a Fast Track chassis that consisted of an independent rear suspension with Penske adjustable coil-over shocks and 14-inch cross-drilled rotors with six-piston Bear brakes. With the stopping power well-adjusted, the wheels would be installed next. Going with bright chrome to tie in the appearance, custom Billet Specialties 20x12 and 20x9 wheels would be selected. Truly a special sight to see from a mechanics standpoint, the interior was given the same no-expense-spared theme.
Getting into the cabin is easy thanks to the keyless entry feature, and one will be pleased when they are greeted with the custom genuine leather interior professionally installed by Interiors by Thomas. The seats are covered in jet black leather that features fine red stitching throughout and gives its four occupants the ultimate comfort. The classic 1966 dashboard appears to be untouched other than an upgraded stereo system, only preserving its perfect blend of modern and old-school flair.
A truly spectacular sight to see with its no-expense-spared theme throughout, this 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Restomod with its monstrous 560 HP supercharged engine that lurks under the hood is set to make a lasting impression on any build competition it enters or anyone that dares challenge it to a straight line on the streets.
