We’ve been trying our best to keep our lips sealed about the visit from Arvid Svensen and the “Malibeater” ’67 Chevelle project car. We absolutely love this car, and we’re glad Arvid took the time to stop by the shop, while he did a very cool tire and wheel swap article next door at Coker Tire. He also saw it fitting to photograph the car in it’s ’70s street machine guise, in front of the shop. This thing is so killer–even though it looks like a beater that was recently dragged out of a shed, every piece of the chassis and drive train is brand new, including a wicked big block under the hood. The rat motor is dressed as a “patina’d” L88, when it’s actually a brand new Chevrolet Performance crate engine. We enjoyed eyeballing the car, and snapped a few shots of it, while it was here. The article came out on Hotrod.com last week (CLICK HERE to check it out!) and will later appear in an issue of Muscle Car Review magazine. Check it out!
Them boys at Coker Tire also did a video on the car, and the entire tire/wheel swap project. Click below to watch!
