1965 Chevrolet Chevelle description
"Reliability, Comfort, Style, Presence, Personality, The Full Package"-Mike Musto, DriveTV *Pro-Touring, Show Winner: Best in Show, Best Engine Compartment, Best Interior, Car was featured on DriveTV in February 2015 and Super Chevy and Chevy High Performance magazine Nov. 2014. 1965 Chevelle Malibu SS, LS Motor, Gil has restored over 20 cars but probably his favorite project so far is this 1965 Chevelle. The type of restoration Gil did on this Chevelle is called Pro Touring. Pro Touring is taking an old car and setting it up to handle like a new car. It is mostly done with American muscle cars from the 1960's and 1970's such as Camaros, Chevelles and Mustangs. A pro touring build can greatly increase the value of a vehicle.
When Gil restored this Chevelle, it was very important to him to maintain the retro look of the car even with the new LS motor. The newer LS motors are approximately 150 pounds lighter than the old cast iron motors. Therefore it makes the car lighter in the front so that it handles better. The engine is usually located on top of the front wheels but if you move the motor back, more weight is distributed in the middle of the car. Gil made his own plates and placed the engine four inches back which makes it handle like a modern sports car! (Now you can buy LS conversion kits) Gil likes fuel injection for certain applications, but for this project he took the fuel injection off the motor and put a carburetor on top and a distributor in front of the motor as it was done in the original era of the car. Gil also takes all the electronics off, bringing the motor back to basics. One benefit is that this allows you to see the actual motor. Another advantage is that if your car breaks down on the road, you don't need a scanner to figure out what is wrong with the motor. The T56, 6 speed transmission came out of a Dodge Viper. Gil chose this transmission because it can take more torque and has the gear ratio he wanted. However, he had to convert the input shaft from Dodge to Chevrolet.The front suspension is Global West negative roll control arms with QA1 Adjustable Aluminum Coilover shocks and springs. The rear suspension is Global West trailing arms and also the QA1 Adjustable Aluminum Coilover shocks and springs. The front brakes are Wilwood six piston calipers superlite with 14 inch rotors. The back brakes are four piston superlite calipers. This assembly combines the brake and clutch pedals together in one unit and positions the master cylinders inside the firewall and away from engine heat. It features all aluminum frame and arm construction with steel pivots, mounting studs, and anti-skid pedal pads. Wilwood's clevis and pivot pin balance bar provide smooth and accurate settings of the brake pedal bias. It is attached to a remote cable for quick on-track adjustments. The Chevelle has a full floating rear end. "1965 BMW M3 by Chevrolet"-Mike Musto,DriveTV *Car must be seen and driven to be fully appreciated!
