Here are some pictures as the Chevelle left Norton’s Street Rods to go to Radi’s so they can finish up the upholstery. Thank you Scott and the staff of Norton’s for all your help on this great project!
Hello again. We are now 7 days away from the show and the debut of the car! Excited yet? We sure are.
Today here’s a peak at the wiring of the Chevelle. Classic Whitewall Tire’s Ed volunteered to do the wiring on this car using a kit they sell at their shop. We want to thank Rebel Wire for donating the 16 Circuit Muscle Car kit to this project. Rebel Wiring makes great kits for all different types of Vehicles. Need a specialized one? Bob can make that up too. This kit is all handmade here in the USA with components made here in as well.
With this kit, there are plenty enough circuits to run all the features on this car and the best part? If the future owner wants to customize something, then the circuits are there for most of those upgrades.
Here are some pictures of the install:
Here are some pictures from Saturday. As you can see the assembly is going together nicely. Rear taillights, bumper, trim and trunk locks were installed. Door seals were also installed. This is just the frist post of what went on that day. Stay tuned for more!
Here is a quick snapshot from the fellas at Norton’s Custom Street Rods in Huntington Beach. As you can see the 454 is in and looking pretty. Thanks fellas for the peek!
Just a quick update…Auto Tek installed the motor and transmission last week.
Thank You Auto Tek for all your help on this build. Call them up at (714) 685-0801 for all your automotive needs. The guys here in Orange are awesome to work with!
I’ll post pictures and updates as they become available.
As you can see, the glass is in, the front end is on and now its off to the motor shop for the motor. More details to follow in the next couple of days…
The front end is on the car now.
We are in the final stages of the build!
The glass is in!
Thanks to D&P Classic Chevy for the glass and trim install on the Chevelle. If you haven’t already stopped by their website please do.
D&P Chevy is a family owned and operated, one stop shop for all your classic car building needs. They are always a great sponsor of the OCCA’s Great Labor Day Cruise. Stop by their booth to see a display of their craftsmanship. Again, thank you to Darryl, Peggy, Nick, Pat and their crew for the help on the Chevelle.
That’s all for now!
Just a quick update on the project 66. Right now its moving along nicely. The fellas have the headliner and carpet installed and the glass is going in as well.
Since I don’t have new pictures yet, I thought I’d do some groovy facts on 1966 life.

Hello everyone! Its been a busy time for us here at OCCA. Besides producing this awesome car, we’ve been hard at work finalizing details for the 31st annual Great Labor Day Cruise. Cruise on over to the website http://www.occa-inc.com to learn more about the show.
This blogger got a chance to get over to see the paint first hand and wow is it pretty! Now I’ve only seen the car inside but the color is like a cherry red lipstick. I’m sure it will be stunning outside.
Andy Radi at Radi’s Custom Upholstery has already started to install the interior pieces, starting with the headliner. He also installed the new gas tank.
Where is the front end you ask? The front end is also painted and put away as the next stop for the Chevelle is Auto Tek where the motor and transmission are married to the car and we don’t want that pretty red all scratched up.
Now the Chevelle is off to get its heartbeat…
