FULLY RESTORED, BIG BLOCK 396CI POWER, 4 SPEED MANUAL, SUPER SLICK PAINT, NICE!
This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle coupe adds some flash to its sleeper image, but the performance-built big block, upgraded suspension, four-on-the-floor, and custom roll bars makes this a seriously ready to run pro street machine.
You're instantly drawn to this coupe because of how different it is. The SS hardtops feel a bit boisterous about their power, and instead, this one wears its Chevelle 300 badges and blue-collar attitude with pride. But it also has something else. You can see it in how there was a clear investment in a professional application of that deep black paint. This model doesn't have all that excess trim, so the mirror black luster flows uninterrupted over the whole body, and it has the kind of shine that makes the chrome bumpers melt right into this highly reflective bodywork. Add in the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels and redline tires, and this Chevy is subtle intimidation on wheels.
The interior immediately gets down to business. The front bucket seats have racing lap belts, and the rear has a fuel cut off switch and part of the custom roll bar that adds structural strength. There's a full set of auxiliary gauges to go with the large horizontal speedometer. Plus, the large column-mounted AutoMeter Elite tach is the perfect companion to the stick sift on the floor. But as much as this is built to be a true speed machine, don't forget to appreciate how nice the medium blue interior looks and feels. The door panels, carpet, headliner, and dash all have the kind of appearance you'd want if this were just purely a show car.
Open the hood and see it filled with big block power. The 396 cubic-inch V8 has a show-worthy shine that comes from nearly everything, including the polished components to the nicely painted fender wells. But as you'd expect from a car like this, there is some serious substance beyond the flash. The big block has been professionally built to inhale deeply though a Holley four-barrel carburetor and a performance intake. It exhales with added power and authority thanks to long tube headers that feed the Flowmaster dual exhaust. The total package is rated at 375 horsepower, and you've got full control over this monster motor thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. It connects to a stout 12-bolt Positraction rear end for the best in reliably getting this power to the ground. But more than just a big power package, this is backed up by trustworthy components like an aluminum radiator, steel braided fuel lines, and an AC Delco clutch kit that was added in 2015. But to understand the full story on this Chevelle, take a look at the undercarriage photos. There you'll spot the upgraded front suspension with CPP upper and lower control arms, Sensa-Trac rear shocks, and slotted front disc brakes. There are plenty of more upgrades to this race-ready Chevelle, so call for all the details.
Complete with restoration photos, this is the perfect classic for both show and go. It's a unique muscle car, and there's only one up for grabs, so call today!
