A no expense-spared documented frame-off restoration was done in 2010. During the restoration nearly all of the original parts were restored and reused. Most of the items that had to be replaced were done with NOS parts. As a result, the car is incredibly correct and was shown for the first time at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago (MCACN) where is scored a 996 out of a possible 1000 points.
Along with the car being a true optioned L78, it has to be one of the best correctly restored 1967 Super Sports in the country. At the end of the 1966 production year, the L78 option was cancelled for the 1967 model year. However, during March/April 1967 the option was reintroduced and made available. This car finished production at the Framingham plant on April 28, 1967. Based on this information the car is currently the earliest known L78 in existence.
A savvy car collector will be hard pressed to find a more perfect 1967 Chevelle anywhere, let alone a true Sport Coupe SS396, with the near impossible to find L78 motor option.
