2015 PPV

Post by usc2001gc » Sat Jun 05, 2021 9:17 pm

Purchased this 2015 from the Mobile auction last year and finally getting around to making it road worthy. Plans are complete SS interior, carpet, and Aussie exterior upgrades. Working on the dash swap now.

Looking good. Did you do the front end rebuild yourself or did you contract it out?

Did the work myself. I do all my mechanical, electrical, and paint and body work. Here's a picture of my 71 Chevelle I built back in 2010. It has a '05 Corvette LS2 with a TKO-600 5 speed.

I bought a '12 PPV parts car that had been wrecked on the passenger rear. Also, I have a friend that buys these PPVs for the drivetrain, so I have a source for parts when needed.

That Caprice is gorgeous. I like the Chevelle too. I got a soft spot for old GM's. My Caprice has re-energized my GM enthusiasm. In the "olden' days", I had a 65 Impala (283 and a 'glide), 69 Camaro (305 !?), 71 Nova (307), 73 Nova, 75 Nova (6), 75 Monza (262 small block - 29.6 mpg), 70 1/2 ton pickup (350 replaced the 307), k5 blazer (forgot the year but closer to .6 mpg than 29.6), 73 Camaro (350), 75 Camaro (350), 70 Eldorado (500 ci engine), etc. It's likely I missed a few. Wut!? No Chevelles?! My Caprice certainly takes the prize for top speed. It may also be the quarter mile king.
Doing the SS interior is ambitious. I'm sure you're aware of the "no budget" thread. My ambitions are tamed with age but my Caprice adventure isn't over. I am currently installing G8 buckets. There'll be more as time goes on which is enough to tickle my interest. :)
Best of luck with your "adventure".

Welcome! That is some good work on that. Even got rid of the spotlight hole.

Having done the G8 interior swap, I know it's a challenge and reading that other thread, a whole SS interior looks to be even more of a challenge.

The Chevelle is gorgeous too. Love the resto-mod with an LS engine.
