Frame-Off ’69 Chevelle SS Restoration Project to be Featured at Atlanta Motorama


Among the sea of amazing cars that will be displayed at Atlanta Motorama will be a flawless 1969 Chevy Chevelle SS which went through a three-year frame-off restoration and was on display recently at the Summit Racing retail store in McDonough, GA.

“When I got the car it had been partially restored. It was sort of a halfway SS clone and it wasn’t anywhere near being right,” said David Hamilton, the car’s owner, in an interview with Atlanta Motor Speedway. “It was drivable, but it was rough—very rough—and it was my goal from the beginning to eventually put it back brand new.”

The restoration was performed by Mark Engel and the team at Atlanta Auto Restoration.

“It’s exactly what I wanted. I got the color I wanted; I’m a red car guy, I’ve been a red car guy my whole life, and the paint’s just beautiful,” Hamilton said.

The Summit Racing Equipment Atlanta Motorama is the premier outdoor automotive event in the southeast United States.

The Chevelle is one of more than a 1,000 vehicles that will be displayed at Atlanta Motor Speedway April 27-28.
