Project American Heroes III Sells For $250,000
Route 66 Motorsports recently finished a 1970 Chevelle, which is the third in a series of souped-up muscle cars built for charity. The Armed Forces Foundation helps and supports the families of injured veterans.
The top seller in Barrett-Jackson’s first Orange County auction on Saturday was this very special 1970 Chevy Chevelle. Built by Route 66 Motorsports and chronicled by Super Chevy Magazine, it’s known as the Project American Heroes Chevelle, and it brought a cool quarter of a million bucks for the Armed Forces Foundation.
The car itself is a 1970 Chevelle, with an intercooled, supercharged GM Performance Parts LSA engine where you might expect to see an LS5 or LS6 big block. Detroit Speed & Engineering did the suspension, the binders are Baer’s new “6P” brake system, power is routed through a TCI Automotive 6×6-speed 4L80E transmission, and the end result of these and about 30 other component contributors is one badass Chevelle that sold for $250,000 on Saturday afternoon.
Take a look at some pictures below to see some shots of this very special Chevy on it way to the auction and at Barrett Jackson. For pictures of the complete build please visit Route 66 Motorsports Website (http://rt66motorsports.com/projects_view.php?i=43)
