This week is part two of an interview with Jeff Allison about Jeremy’s 1966 Chevelle . I had intended to have both he and Jeremy on the phone at the same time – but since Jeremy was literally floating around on the ocean somewhere (really) we had to improvise! Jeremy’s interview is available in Episode 276).
Jeff told me that the build is progressing nicely but that there was more rust in the body than was initially noticed. He said that most of the rust repair is done and he is starting to move on to the modifications. One of Jeff’s sinature moves is to move the wiring to the back of the car to clean up the engine compartment.
He is now working on modifying a tube to run through the rocker panel to feed the harness to the back and not cause any undue chafing of wires on metal edges. It is this attention to detail that makes for a great car when done…..but also requires the long hours finish a car. Jeff did say that a lot of the sheet metal that was not available just a couple years ago dureing the restoration of my car is now produced and is helping make his life easier this time around.
The Chevelle is not the only project going on at Allison Customs so Jeff gave me an update on his “Rustang” project. He picked up a 2007 Trailblazer SS and many of the parts will be transferred into the Mustang, including perhaps the all-wheel drive setup! This is Jeff’s personal build so it will be interesting to see how radical he goes with it.
Thanks for the update Jeff, talk to you again in a couple months!
