AMD, CCR and AMC punch out another winner
Don’t worry if those acronyms went right over your head, as you read the following article on this stunning ’67 Chevelle, they’ll click. Chop, Cut, Rebuild is a television program where host Dan Woods follows the build of a classic American car; check it out on MAVTV. The premise behind this Chevelle was to find the rustiest ’67 around, have Auto Metal Direct replace the sheetmetal to bring the carcass back to OEM standards, and then ship it to American Muscle Cars for final assembly.
A crusty hulk was located outside of Atlanta, and the AMD crew went to work. It’s refreshing to see a high-end build like this start with a truly rough car; too many times we’ve seen a so-called ‘rusty hulk’ located in the desert get all new sheetmetal while those of us in the rust-belt look on with a stack of grinding discs and dust in our lungs. When the A body was torn down, everyone in the shop looked at one another in surprise, as the Chevelle was in worse condition than previously thought. Craig Hopkins and his crew at AMD got to work cutting, welding and replacing the vintage tin with high quality replacements, and in no time, the body was in like-new condition.
