THUMPING 454 BIG BLOCK, BUCKET SEAT INTERIOR, SLICK MARINA BLUE, MEAN '66 CHEVY
This is the kind of muscle car recipe you love to see. Take a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle hardtop, add big block power, insert plenty of performance upgrades, and wrap it all in a slick blue paint body with Super Sport badging...now you have a winner.
Marina Blue is one of those defining colors for the '60 muscle Chevys. Vivid yet innocent, it made these high horsepower cars feel regal in the parking lot, but they left a speedy impression as they showed everyone their taillights. This one is particularly striking because it has been treated to a professional application of a more modern paint. Plus, the panels are so excellent that you'll wonder if that factory really ever did make them this straight. It wears its aggressive nature well with SS 396 badges on the front and rear (the big block is actually BIGGER), racing flags on the front fenders, and "Super Sport" boldly written on the rear in chrome to match the bumpers. Plus, this Chevelle SS tribute has all the details right - from the twin intake hood to the ribbed lower body panels. And of course, we all love the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels that's been a part of the muscle car culture since this car was fresh from the Atlanta factory.
The moment you open the door you'll swear it's 1966 all over again, and that's for a very good reason. There has been plenty of investment to keep this looking factory spec. All the black and bright elements on the seats, door panels, and dash come together for a tasteful and uniform appearance. Plus, bucket seats and a center console with floor-mounted shifter will always get your heart racing from the moment you hop in. You sit behind the stylized original-style wheel and enjoy the original instruments, including the cool extra wide speedometer. But as much as this feel like a 1960s time machine there is one subtle upgrade you'll love. The auxiliary gauge trio under the dash lets you know there's something special in the engine bay even before you twist the key and hear the V8 growl.
When you pop the hood, the bright valve covers, air topper, alternator, pulleys, and so much more just looks like its radiating power in that dark engine bay... and it certainly is! The decals might say 396, but this is actually a larger 454 cubic-inch big block V8. And not only do you get more displacement, but also there are plenty of go-fast goodies, such as a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Holley hi-rise intake, and long tube headers. That last one also helps create some serious thunder as the car exhales through the dual exhaust. But what makes a muscle machine like this an all-around great classic are the added driving features. For example, the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to handle the enhanced V8, and it's also smooth enough for Sunday cruising. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, and this is the coupe you'll love to drive AND show off.
This classic Chevelle hardtop is an enduring icon and a true stunner... that's why we know this deal will be leaving here soon. Call today!
