1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Restoration Project


Poor Mans Restoration has scheduled a shop project to start February 1, 2020. This project will involve a complete restoration of a 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle. Poor Mans will start with a completed gutted vehicle obtained locally. The end product will be determined once it has been decided whether the Chevelle will be offered for sale – and built according to new ower’s specifications, or kept as a shop owned example of Poor Mans work.

As with many of our restoration jobs, many vehicles are available for purchase at any time during the course of the restoration. If you are interested in this car, give Glen a call 251-605-1545.

The 1972 Chevelle included a new grille, a change from the ’71 model, and one piece side marker lights. The 1972 Chevelle was available in several different trim levels. These included the base Chevelle, Chevelle Malibu, Chevelle Concours Estate, Chevelle SS396, and SS454 and the all-new Heavy Chevy.

Chevelle body styles for 1972 included 2 door sports coupes, 2 door sedans, 2 door convertibles, 4 door sedans, 2 door wagons, and 4 door wagons. There were a little over 450,000 Chevelles were made in 1972. Right now we have only one.

We would like for you to follow along as we begin this project.
