Awesome Limey. Nice find. First thing I would think of doing would be having all the rust media blasted and put a nice coat of 2 PART EPOXY on it. Morning dew and condensation will play havoc on those rusty areas if not addressed as soon as possible.
Best of luck with those.

For right now The parts car is in Richards old shop and can stay there for up to 7 months While I get the one with Turbines back on road (actually Both cars have been in that shop Since last May, Richard is a Retired NHRA drag racer from the 80's and older, then Just built a Vega to have fun with and which Now resides in Texas with his Oldest son...........

And as far as the NON Turbined one I think its destined to be a parts Vehicle and getting stripped for that Purpose, Has no drive train, driveshaft and Interior is very rough.... But time will tell, will be here in a few weeks they have to go through all the parts that are there to make sure no drag racing stuff gets sent ( not that I would mind LOL ) But they dont want it to come with

Can you tell more about the SE?

1977 Chevelle SE One of approximatly 50 ever produced from subcontracts thru GM motor division to boost sales of the Slagging Chevy Sales,  Two were made with T-Tops only one has survived, The Chevelle SE was NOT a factory produced car. The SE was created by a company in Witchita, Kansas called Special Editions, Inc.
who modified a mere fifty (yes, 50!)

1977 Chevelle Malibus with aftermarket (not factory) goodies which included a front air dam, a rear spoiler, 60 series tires on Turbine II aluminum wheels and a special orange and yellow stripe package.

All fifty cars were either black, white or silver and were optioned with a 350/4bbl engine,  these cars had a rear trunk lid spoiler that had CHEVELLE SE on the right hand end of the spoiler. The spoiler had yellow and orange pinstriping about 2 inches wide that went across the rear spoiler and down the sides of the car. Under the front bumper was a fiberglass ground effect type spoiler. One of these cars was delivered to Bill Southern Chevrolet in Newkirk, Oklahoma (no longer in business) and the car was white. I know the name of the original owner, but he doesn't know who owns the car now. The silver one was delivered to Charlie Cannon Chevrolet in Ponca City, Oklahoma (no longer under that name).

Wow, only 50 made and you have owned 3 of them. Do you have any numbers on how many SE's might still be around. Back several years ago there was one in Kansas City. I did not know they were that rare.

I personally know of 11 that I have found through different avenues and 2 of them Have been scraped (told to by previous owners of them of junked ones) One owner here has a SE spoiler on his car ( not a 77 ) but I know personally of others that are complete cars and running driving (except one of the silver ones I am getting) original drivetrain gone  SO I guess only 7 running / driving ones I have found.

Kansas City,MO was the Area my black one came from, He worked in the area and ended up living in Granite City Illinois

The one I saw around here was white. I spent a lot of time in new car dealerships in 1977. My father had to look at every dealer in town to find the perfect car to purchase. We ended up with the 1977 El Camino and a 1977 Delta 88. Never saw a SE on the lot. I was 9 years old and all I could think about were cars and I would have remembered one of those!
