A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who has stopped by the store. On Wednesdays, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.
This isn’t your grandfather’s Chevelle.
It might be someone’s grandfather’s Chevelle, but it’s not like the ’66 or ’67 Chevelle Super Sport your dad or granddad might have owned in the 1960s. Instead of the original big block, this one has more modern horsepower in the form of a Gen. III LS1 small block — a now-popular swap for early model A-bodies. With Corvette disc brakes and some upgrades to the stock suspension, this 1967 Chevelle is ready for the Autocross.
The 1967 Chevelle body style is one of our favorites from the 196os. The last of a two-year design (the second generation Chevelle hit the streets in 1968), the ’67 combined a trim yet muscular look with new wraparound taillights that set it apart from its 1966 sibling.
