There were two cars on display at OPG’s booth this year – a 1968 Buick GS 350 and a 1966 Chevelle SS 396.IMG_1668

The ’66 was OPG’s very first personal SEMA build so we had to include it in their booth spotlight. The Chevelle recieved the 2007 SEMA design award for best restored GM vehicle. No argument there, this classic caught our eye from the moment we stepped in the booth.

IMG_1693Some quick features about it – under the hood is a 396ci pushing 375 hp. The transmission is a 200R4. Interior features include updated A/C, power windows, bucket seats, and a center console. The outside showcases OPG’s very own trim and bezel work, from the windshield frame to the badges. To top it off, Artesian turquoise was used to give the Chevelle that icy-clean look. It perfectly compliments the 2-tone turquoise interior. A definite beauty and sure-fire classic.
