The Chevelle's eye-catching appeal is largely due to a comprehensive frame-off rotisserie restoration, a process that is said to have been undertaken without cutting corners. The claim of 'no expense spared' in the car's restoration, while a common refrain in the auction world, seems to hold water in this instance. The vehicle's immaculate condition was evident, both inside and out, showcasing the meticulous care it received.
