Chevette R-HS

Postby Petrolhead » 21 Nov 2005, 09:45

Hi Guys, have been a member of the forum for a while and thought you might be interested in my Chevette. I have just finished building it from a bog standard Chevtte L. It now has a 3.9 EFI Rover V8 engine, Isuzu axle, Volvo front calipers, uprated springs and Bilsteins. The rear shocks are coilovers so that I can adjust the ride height.

Many years ago I used to own a real HS but I can't afford to buy one today (not at over 5k for an HS on Ebay!!). So I decided to build something similar for trackdays and perhaps some sprints and hillclimbs.

I have only driven it a few miles so far as it has some minor teething problems but the performance is fantastic!! With a 2.5" staright through exhaust it makes proper V8 sounds. Here are some pictures:
