This 1969 Chevelle Concours Station Wagon is just spectacular! From the high quality paint and bodywork to the rebuilt 350 / 300 horsepower engine to the COLD factory Air conditioning, it is in delightful condition and ready to enjoy right now!
The former owner lavished attention on it – his attention to detail really shows! The car sits just right, thanks to a completely rebuilt suspension, including new springs! Those SS wheels and Radial T/A tires are perfect, and the window tinting gives it a subtle yet custom look.
And here is the original sales contract ! The price out the door back then was $4275. Marvin Lazer and his family kept the car until September of 2004, when the second owner purchased it and did the extensive restoration that you see now.
Here’s the right side. Nice and straight. You’ll note the roof rack was carefully removed, giving it a super clean appearance, but done in such a way that it could be re-attached. The roof rack is included, except for the mounting feet, which were made of die-cast metal and did not survive.
Let’s open up the hood – WOW ! This really shows the effort of the restorer. this is the ORIGINAL matching numbers engine block, with HB code correct for the 350 / 300 HP 4 barrel engine. The factory A/C shows here, as does the Front disc brake metering valve. Look how CLEAN it is!
The dashboard is beautiful, with nice clear gauges, and excellent trim. Note the Tachometer peeking out. Every single thing on this car works! The restorer wanted to add engine gauges, which you can see below – but he took the effort to make sure the warning lights in the factory instrument panel still work too! That’s how detail oriented this guy was! My only complaint with the interior is there is a very small crack in the original dashpad, visible on the top left corner.
Here’s another view of the dash. This one shows the tastefully installed AM/FM/CD player – which sounds really great – mounted where the ashtray used to be, and done in such a way that you could re-install an ashtray if you wanted to. The original AM radio sits above, and it’s not working now. Other details to note in this photo are the disc brake pedal, and the cleanliness of the doorjamb.
This is a great car! It’s not a top show car, and not a rotisserie style restoration. It’s still just beautiful, one of the nicest frame-on restorations, or I should say restifications, that I’ve come across! The combination of excellent and thorough work, and full documentation make this a super desirable car!
