everything new is old again

Here at Super Chevy we deal mainly with 1955-and-newer Chevys. That’s roughly 65 years of Chevy-branded cars, from classics to the modern rides they sell today. And while that may seem like a lot of cars, time has really taken a toll on the classics. Yeah, they made a ton of Tri-Fives, but between rust, rot, accidents, and other acts of man and nature those numbers have been whittled down quite a bit. It’s the same for other nameplates as well. Try finding a good starter first-gen Camaro that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.Recently, a friend of mine was shopping around for a clean 1967 Nova for a project car. What he found were nice “done” cars for tons of cash or rusted-out messes that were still overpriced…

hybrid camaro match racer

Don’t bother looking for a battery pack or electric motor in this Funny; that’s not why we called it a hybrid. Instead, note how Joe and Frankie Pisano combined a steel Camaro body with fiberglass at both ends to create what Car Craft magazine called “an entry in the wild 2400-pound class that was an immediate winner.”“Before the Camaro was painted it was real easy to pick out what was fiberglass and what was steel,” said the magazine. “Fiberglass Trends did the nose and rear deck, while Fisher Body can take credit for the steel work.” The Camaro’s long schnozz “has shown no tendency to ‘lift,’” said CC.The ducktail spoiler on the decklid “helps hold the car on a straight, steady course on the big-bore runs,” the mag said.

glass houses

Young gun builder Nick Weber is no stranger to the Chevy community. Over the last couple of years he’s created an array of wild builds, all featuring big-block Bowtie power under the hood. Nick’s new project doesn’t stray far from his roots and many say that this particular ride might be his finest creation yet.After putting together some groundbreaking rides, including a wild ’46 pickup and a low-slung unibody Chevelle, Nick re-grouped and came up with a design for the ages. Starting with nothing more than a beat-up 1960 Vette body and his one-bay garage, he created his own tube chassis, welding together a myriad of lengths of 1.75 DOM steel tubing to fit around the modified Vette body.Features include a C6 Z06 front end with a kick-ass steering rack…

sentimental journey

The 1955 Chevrolet is, by any measure, a landmark car that profoundly influenced the entire auto industry when it was introduced, and for many years thereafter. Chevy advertising called the completely restyled and V-8–equipped ’55 “The Hot One” and the public certainly agreed. By year’s end, Chevrolet sold a total of 1,802,811 vehicles, which comprised a mind-boggling 24.2 percent share of the entire American market.The very same traits that made 1955 Chevys so immensely popular when they were new still drive people to lust after them today. Even though a massive quantity were produced, good examples can be difficult to find. That’s why our feature car caught Jeff Barbieri’s eye when he came across it at an Englishtown, New Jersey, swap meet about 10 years ago. The car was super…

mass effect

When we decided to do something different and build a two-ton station wagon for occasional track duty we knew we needed big power to get all that mass into motion. Actually, what we needed was torque and the quickest way to get there was boost. Yep, physics and Newton (Isaac, not the fig) tells us that objects at rest really want to stay that way, and we estimate that our 1971 Chevelle wagon will weigh in right about 4,500 pounds when done. That’s over 1,000 pounds more than the typical Pro Touring Camaro.So we knew we wanted a boosted mill and that it had to be in the form of an LS engine. To shave a little weight off the nose, we chose a Chevrolet Performance LS3 block from Scoggin-Dickey…
