Description

REAL DEAL CHEVELLE SS, 454 V8, TH400, COLD R134 AC, PS, PB W/FRNT DISC, GORGEOUS

A real-deal 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible in a fantastic triple red is already an attractive idea. But dig deeper to see all the best upgrades – from an upgraded big block to an A/C interior – and soon you realize just how irresistible this deal really is.

This car is quite striking from its first impression in the way it mixes speed with sophistication. The '66 cars blend artful touches (like the subtle Coke-bottle curves) with subtle aggression (like the intimidating overhang on the hood.) And this one really does it right. The deeper tones of the red paint give it some added maturity, and the clearcoat luster tells you there was a big investment here. Before they even laid down the color, they made sure it had a good canvas with straight sheetmetal and good gaps all around. The final touch of premium is the burgundy folding roof that makes this one attractive even when buttoned up to the world. This was the first year for the Super Sport 396 as its own separate model, and this droptop wears its unique pieces with pride, including the blacked-out grille, faux hood vents, ribbed lower trim panels, and all the correct badging – right down to the Super Sport scripts on the rear fender. And for added aggression, there are the large American Racing Torq Thrust wheels that are staggered 18/20 inches front/rear for an intimidating stance.

Beneath the burgundy roof is a fantastically restored red interior. So while you've heard of triple-black, the exterior, roof, and interior colors combine for a quite distinctive triple red! This handsome bucket seat interior perfectly captures this Chevelle's comfortable and performance dual-purpose nature. The seats, door panels, carpets, and headliner have that kind of fresh appearance that makes us believe there was quite a nice investment in the interior. Plus, there's plenty of great shiny trim everywhere from the long horizontal speedometer to the center console. If you were starting to believe this was the perfect vintage cruiser, then knowing that you can stay cool while looking cool with modern R134a air conditioning will really seal the deal. But this one is more than just upgraded for comfort. The new three-spoke woodgrain sports steering wheel and large Super Pro tach on the dash remind you this is a serious performance machine, too.

When you pop the hood, the bright valve covers, air topper, alternator, and so much more just looks like its radiating power in that red engine bay... and it certainly is! The badging 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 more go-fast goodies, such as an Edelbrock Performer intake and four-barrel carburetor. So while all great real-deal SS cars have a thunderous exhaust note, this enlarged and enhanced one gives an even more impressive growl. But what makes a muscle machine like this an all-around great classic are the added driving features. For example, the TH400 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 droptop you'll love to drive AND show off.

A great presentation, A/C comfort, serious power, and it's all wrapped around a rare real Chevelle SS396 convertible body. Oh yeah, this is the ultimate turn-key muscle machine, and it can all be yours if you act fast enough. Call today!!!
