When on the topic of track-day toys we don’t often think of the 60’s. A few months back while walking around the local car show in Sterling, VA on a Friday evening I found a unique GM A-body owned by Herbert Lumpp. Herb acquired this 1966 Chevelle SS from a friend in non-running condition as trade for Herb’s ’76 Corvette. The Chevelle was completely torn down and rebuilt into what we have today – a total track monster.
A combination of SPC and Global West suspension components keep body roll to a minimum while brakes courtesy of the C5 Corvette slow this Chevelle down from 175 MPH. Yes, those are Forgeline SP3P wheels which are held in place by ARP 1/2″ studs.
Then there’s the aerodynamics. A custom front splitter supplies both down force and additional brake cooling while a rear trunk spoiler applies sufficient (we hope) down force to the BFGoodrich 295’s.
