Project American Heroes Chevelle is the third in a series of specially enhanced muscle cars built by Route 66 Motorsports and documented by Super Chevy Magazine with proceeds of the auction going to the Armed Forces Foundation. The very best parts supplied from over 30 participating sponsors are combined into this high performance vehicle. Route 66 Motorsports provided all of the build talent and support to make this car a reality.
Beginning with a donated 1970 Chevelle, the latest design components from Detroit Speed & Engineering were used for both front and rear suspensions and were combined with Baer Brakes’ new “6P” brake system. Power from the GM Performance Parts LSA intercooled and supercharged engine with computer management power is delivered through a TCI Automotive 6x 6-speed 4L80E transmission to an Inland Empire driveshaft that connects to the Strange Engineering rear end. Additional parts needed to complete this combination were Aeromotive fuel components, a K&N air filtration system, Autorad radiator system, Lucas Oil Products synthetic lubricants, Edelbrock LS package of headers, exhaust and motor mounts. Rounding out the driveline components are Toyo Tires USA high performance tires wrapped around specially designed one-off Boze Alloy custom 6-spoke wheels that have the insignia of each branch of the military etched in place.
