The extensive attention to detail bestowed upon this 1966 Chevelle stands in stark contrast to its given name: Mayhem. The subject of an extensive frame-off restoration and build that goes much deeper than the rich, deep, reflective Brandywine paint by House of Kolor, Mayhem is one of those vehicles that proves the phrase “success is in the details” completely correct. A GM LS1 V-8 engine is stupendously well-dressed with an array of billet, chrome and stainless elements all nestled in an engine bay that’s been smoothed and painted to match the body. The engine uses a Holley Sniper electronic fuel-injection system, a CVF Racing serpentine system and custom dual-snorkel air cleaner by RG Exhaust among other performance and aesthetic enhancing items. Breathing through ceramic-coated headers leading to a polished dual exhaust system featuring X-Factor stainless steel mufflers with a built-in electric cutoff, Mayhem produces an unmistakable sound. Backed by a Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission, power is sent to a 12-bolt rear end stuffed with 4.11 gearing for tremendous punch off the line. Rolling on polished 18-inch Foose Wheels wrapped with wide, low-profile tires, Mayhem rewards drivers with responsive close-ratio steering and a Wilwood brake system. Passengers are further rewarded with innumerable creature comforts such as Vintage Air, a custom stereo system with a 12-inch subwoofer, power windows and hugely supportive front bucket seats, all designed into a beautiful custom interior. Classic Instruments gauges, stereo controls and vents are tastefully placed in a customized dashboard reimagined with modern materials. An Ididit steering column is topped with a custom steering wheel, and a screen in the custom-made and placed center stack is linked to a rearview camera.
Riding on Air Ride by RideTech suspension, handheld Air Ride fobs help control the stance. Looking at this Chevelle, it’s easy to see a copious amount of effort has been put forth to give it a distinctive look, and that effort extends to its show-quality detailed undercarriage. It’s fun to examine the car up close and find the subtle differences like the custom grille, hood and trunk lid, shaved drip rails, carbon fiber trim and much more. The Mayhem uses Ring Brothers hood hinges, clutch fluid reservoir, interior door handles, door strikes and locks, furthering the one-off look and feel. Can a car with this many delicate details really be called Mayhem? Sure, because all the details join forces to create an entire package.
