We’ve been lucky enough to experience Griffin Steinfeld’s 1966 Chevelle in person and can tell you that this thing is an absolute beauty. Whether you are a Chevelle fan, or not, this is one of those cars you just can’t help but stare at. The paint is a mile deep, the bodywork is as straight as you’ll ever find near a dragstrip, and the car just hauls ass. I mean, what more could you ask for really?
The fact that the car has factory suspension, with just upgraded components and shocks, along with a simple cage and interior, makes the car super relatable to everyone that sees it as well. There is no big tire out back, no crazy tube chassis, just good stuff working together to make a car that runs deep in the 8’s at over 170 mph. This combo is new to the car as well folks, so we’re certain it will run in the 7’s at over 180.
Here’s the info from the video description:
Griffin Steinfeld’s 1966 Chevelle has one of the slickest paint jobs we’ve yet seen. But don’t let that peacock paint fool you because under the skin, it’s an absolute monster. A twin-turbo LS powered by Holley EFI delivers the grunt for 8-second passes and at LS Fest West, the car blasted out a 8.46 at 171mph in the quarter-mile.
