As Seen on Craiglist – 1968 Chevelle 300 Deluxe

This is almost too good to be true – at this price, it might be a scam.  But, as the seller mentions, this is the very definition of a clean slate.  A white, two-door post, bench seat, straight-6 car with steel wheels and dog dishes means you could go any way you wanted with it.  You could put a big block in it and make an SS 396 replica, or you could put a high-revving small block in it and spend a fortune in the Global West catalog and turn it into an autocross machine, or you could leave it as-is and keep it as a time capsule.  Personally, I’d go for a mix of the three, and leave it as-is cosmetically, put in a modern LS engine, throw some money at disc brakes and new springs all around, and make it a nice little sleeper that you could just as easily drive cross country.  Either way, it would be a whole lot of fun.
