This beautiful 1966 Chevy II belongs to Matt Gregoire. It’s clearly evident that when 3rd generation racer Matt isn’t at Frontier High School teaching shop (tell me he isn’t the coolest shop teacher around), or working as Owner / Operator of Damorie Construction, that he’s spending time in his garage polishing this beauty in preparation for race day. The original, all-steel Chevy II is propelled by a 406 cid Chevy engine by Tom’s Performance.
The engine is equipped with Brodix 18° cylinder heads, Hogan’s intake manifold, and dual 750 cfm carburetors. That stout piece is mated to a Powerglide transmission with a 1.76:1 first gear and torque converter, both by Competition Transmissions. The dazzling red paint was applied by Dean Galovich, who also painted Vince Gregoire’s ‘55 Chevy, which should come as no surprise considering the quality of the work. Matt has many to thank for their help and support over the years, but would particularly like to thank his mom and dad, Beth & Vince Gregoire, as well as his wife, Nora. In addition, he would also like to thank his uncle, Pat Gregoire, as well as his three children; Riley, Mckenzie, and Vinny.
