What better way to update your classic Chevelle than by sliding a modern Nascar chassis underneath it? Sounds easy, right? Well for some people it is, like Doug, who set out to create his ultimate ’69 Chevelle after never quite getting over the loss of his first one back in the mid 80’s. The fond memories of a first car seem to always stick with us, no matter what the make or model.
After extracting a very impressive amount of track time from their previous drift car, a 2JZ S15, the staff at Driftworks are about to embark on a properly bonkers build for 2013. Their plan is to take the chassis from an ASCAR (British NASCAR equivalent) and drape the body of an AE86 around it. Sounds like a perfect candidate for the chassis-swap post tag to me! Head below to find out how to follow their progress.
UPDATE: (March 2014) Car is now pretty much complete, and it’s amazing. New pics below.
