This Rare Chevelle Wagon Has Been Given A SEMA-Grade 5.7L V8 Makeover

Thanks to the enormous hype surrounding shows like SEMA and the proliferation of custom auto shops like Ringbrothers and Speedkore, restomodded muscle cars and classics are now more popular and sought-after than ever before. And while it’s become increasingly commonplace to see 1960s and ‘70s Cougars, Impalas, Skylarks, Camaros, and Mustangs fitted with contemporary crate engines, high-performance running gear, and thoroughly plush and modern interiors, this formula has seldom been applied to a station wagon, which is what makes this 1964 Chevy Chevelle Wagon project so special.

Benefitting from a complete frame-off restoration, this 1964 specimen has been gifted the front fascia off of a 1965 example before having a brand-new 5.7L LS1 crate engine shoehorned under the hood. Paired with a fully-rebuilt 4L60 four-speed automatic transmission, the Corvette engine’s been heavily upgraded with a slew of top-shelf internals including BRP Hot Rods Headers, Comp Cams, and a rebuilt 12 Bolt limited-slip differential — allowing for a healthy output of 336hp and 345ft-lbs of torque. The car’s show-grade interior’s been bestowed with bespoke red leather upholstery throughout, plus modern Dakota digital VHX analog gauges, an array of billet switches and handles, power steering, AC, and power windows. This 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Wagon Restomod is currently available for purchase on eBay Motors with a BIN price of $74,900.
