Built V6 Thing: 1984 Chevrolet Chevette

This next car has a shockingly optimistic asking price for a Chevette that wasn’t owned by Elvis — but it might have enough added value with its custom built engine…oh..wait, its got a 4.3 V6? Yikes. Not sure I’d drop this much coin on a V6 powered Chevette, but it is still an interesting build. Find this 1984 Chevrolet Chevette offered for $23,000 in Batavia, OH via craigslist.
