1965 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Coupe
A clone is when you take a standard, base model car and add options and equipment to make it into a copy of a rare, original muscle car using the same options such as trim, decals, hood scoops, and motor that the higher optioned cars had originally from the factory. In some cases, the cars look exactly like their muscle car replicas, but are less valuable because they are not authentic. Clones are a great way to own their more expensive counterparts and there is nothing wrong with making a clone.
This 65 Chevelle Custom Clone is a 1965 body and chassis with virtually all new parts, upgraded engine, new paint, and various other conveniences added on. Absolutely a beautiful car that is very reliable, and mechanically sound. Let's call it a major facelift! Or maybe a rest-o-mod?
Charcoal Gray Metallic perfectly covers the laser straight panels of this car. All new bumpers, grille, lights and Ridler 5 spoke rims complete the look for this beautiful car. Badging is pristine and all correct on this virtually new car from 1965.
Swing open the doors and find yourself in a world of new black vinyl seating meaning buckets in the front, and a bench in the rear, showroom new but custom built. Right down to the chrome trim running vertically on the back corners of the front seats, things are looking really nice. New carpet floods the floor, and it is magnificent as to its condition. Seen fronting the buckets let your eyes take in the Classic Thunder road dash, peppered with Autometer gauges, you'll know the exact status while you are tearing down the road. If its road noise you like to dampen, switch on the custom sound system, which can stream your favorite tunes through Bluetooth, boosting the quality with a high efficiency 400 Watt 4-channel amplifier, and full range speakers throughout the front and back. Looking through the tinted glass is a bit like looking at the world through rose colored glasses, only you are looking at the real thing.
383ci Stroker puts out 400hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. A cast iron block mates with fast burn aluminum heads. Hypereutectic pistons forged from aluminum and machined to very close tolerances, are moved by connecting rods created from heavy duty PM steel. To reduce weight an aluminum alternator, and aluminum intake are installed. Atop is a Holley 750 double pumper carburetor. Attached to the back of this engine is a modified Turbo 350 transmission actuated by a B&M Quicksilver automatic shifter.
A peek underneath, and you will need sunglasses due to the ultra shine that is there. An oversized radiator can be seen with an attached electric fan. A new power steering pump, and new disc brakes have been added. New Bilstein shocks are noted, as well as the gorgeous headers and piping for the entirely new free flow exhaust system. A rebuilt posi rear with 3.73:1 gearing has been used in this rebuild.

Turn the key!
