67 Chevelle SS427

Recommended Posts

In my 67 Chevelle assembly manual, Chevy shows a 396 with the 3x2 intake/carb setup that was canceled and switched to the Corvette. I fell in love with the idea and thought about making a model ’67 Chevelle with the 3x2 427, the Corvette's side exhaust pipes, steering wheel, wheels, and stinger hood. I wanted to try to make it look like what a factory Chevelle might look like with a 427 option.

In this years Chevelle magazine by Super Chevy, they featured a red '67 chevelle with a 427 and the hood i'm looking for. It looks pretty sweet actually and now I want to make it even more. I an going to used to Revell kits; '67 Chevelle and the '67 Corvette roadster. Anyway ideas how to make the hood? Any other ideas for the design?

You can try similar modification as i did for my `62 Belair. I cut hole in `62s hood and glued blower hole in that place from `70 Chevelle. Ofcource you use Corvette and Chevelle parts, but similar idea :D

Buy a resin hood from Drag City castings? :)

That would be the cheaper route but I love the challenge of things like this. :blink:

Other than the hood, any other ideas for the design? I talked to Ed from Drag City Casting and he is going to sell me a scoop that I can glue onto one of his 67 flat hoods and cut it out.

there has been a Motion modified '67 Chevelle posted online too. don't remember where i saw it, but it was found and is either waiting on it's restoration or it's already been started. the pics where of the car in it's "as found" condition. i belive that car was a 427 too, but installed by Motion performance.

And here's the link to that B/M '67 Chevelle SS427 thread that started in 2004 on the Yenko.net. Note that it doesn't have the Stinger-scoop... :)
