The next Whistling Death BangShift installment is out and based on some of the comments popping up, we want to address a few key points…

Why build a 300 2 door sedan? When was the last time you went to a show and saw one? Nobody wants them. We specifically WANTED to do a 300 because 2 door sedans are better suited for OUR Trans Am inspired chassis (ala the Raybestos GTO). It's not a bolt in affair. That is also why we were ok with a rusty car to start with. The floors and rockers get cut out whether they are pristine or swiss cheese. So why cut up a car that can still be restored original or as a nice restomod? Especially since they made 20,000 total 300 2 door sedans. How many are left? How many were parted out to save a SS? They are the unloved 66-67 Chevelles. Also why we WANTED a 300. To show that you don't have to have an SS or even a Malibu to have a bitchin car. If this were a 138 car, no one would question saving it. With the jig that Dennis and Keith built, Keith and Drew will have no problem putting this back together with the Original Parts Group replacement panels. When the next installment comes out, it will make sense. We will be able to replace all of the problem areas on any 66-67 Chevelle, just like the factory.

If you followed the Raybestos GTO build, then you'll recognize this speedo that we just bought for the Violent Valiant. Maybe the last NOS Stewart Warner reverse sweep speedo in the country? Took 2 weeks of searching to find one! What a shame that it's been discontinued. They told us after the GTO was finished, that sales of this speedo went through the roof.
