The Chevelle is one of the most enduring and endearing muscle cars of
its era, but original equipment on the A-Body Chevelle does not perform
near modern standards. Suspension, steering, brake, and enginetechnology
has taken a giant leap forward since the 1960s and 1970s. Many Chevelle
owners want to bring their cars into the modern era and enjoy all the
benefits of this cutting-edge handling, braking, and ride comfort,
coupled with the supreme thrill of driving a classic V-8 muscle car.
Author Cole Quinnell guides you through completing the best
modifications for your particular use and car. He demonstrates
comprehensive upgrades to every component group of the car: chassis,
suspension, brakes, transmission, driveline, engine, interior, and
electrics. He explains each step of a product installation from
planning, selecting the right tools and materials, removing the stock
part, and then correctly installing the new part or performing the
modification. With these instructions, enthusiast car owners can upgrade
each component group on their cars. Projects include high-performance
ignition, rack-and-pinion steering system, tubular A-arms, six-speed
transmission, front subframe, and much more. Installing a modern GM LS
engine is a popular project, and Quinnell details this complex install
from start to finish.
