Overall the car somewhat resembles Tom Cahills 1973 Baldwin Motion Phase III Chevelle.

copo9566aa,
You are coming up with some period pictures--
You don't happen to have any period pictures of Racquel Welch with stripes

Hi there, I'm a new member and I joined because of my curiousity with this 1973 Nickey Chevelle. I own a 1973 SS Chevelle (not a Nickey prepared version). I'm involved in another Forum for 3rd Generation GM A bodies (1973-1977) and I came across another photo of a 73 Nickey Chevelle SS. Looks very similar to the one above, might actually be the same car, I can't make out all the digits on the front licence plate. But this newer photograph shows the hood plain with no arrow stripe.

Well here's an update: I actually found a previous owner of one of these 1973 Nickey Chevelle SS cars and I have learned a lot about them. The cars were available with 3 optional engines: a 370hp 350 sbc, a 430hp 427 bbc, and a 450hp 454 bbc. For more details please see this vintage magazine ad:

I have some cool photos of a Nickey Chevelle taken by a previous owner. This owner was not the original owner, so some things are still unknown, for example what wheels were used originally. But here is what we know that made them unique beyond the drivetrains:

-front spoiler that was underneath the front bumper
-large arrow painted on hood
-hood tach
-hood pins
-unique side striping
-rear spoiler similar to Camaro
-Nickey sticker on lower right of trunk lid
