dennis mccarthy 1968 chevy chevelle build

Restored to pretty much original look with rebuilt Big Block V8 and NASCAR transmission this 1968 Chevy Chevelle is a raw burnout machine. Although the owner and builder Dennis McCarthy of Vehicle Effects has some crazy cars in his portfolio as a serious hot rodder, this muscle car is one of his personal toys and shows what type of car guy he really is.

Dennis has invested about $100K into this Phantom Blue 1968 Chevy Chevelle, but I really like how he kept it completely old school. Factory color, interior restored to stock condition, a bit lowered but still original suspension etc. However when it comes to the powerplant Dennis has swapped the 396 V8 with rebuilt 468 cubic inch LS6 motor producing over 600 horsepower and 500 pounds of torque sent through a 4-speed manual and posi rear with 3:55 gears.
