Chevelle SS 396
REAL CODE 138 SS, 396 L34 V8, M21 4-SPEED, FACTORY AIR & FACTORY POWER WINDOWS!!
This stealthy Capri Cream 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle is a real code 138 SS 4-speed sport coupe, and packs a burly 396, show-quality paint, and a gorgeous restored interior. Built to L34 350 horsepower specs, this is a potent A-body with a ton of style that's available for way less than the restoration cost.
Code T Capri Cream is this car's original color, and combined with the big block under the hood, it's like that the original owner was more concerned about keeping a low profile than making a statement. Restored to a very high standard, this SS hardtop is simply dazzling in person, with super-straight bodywork that emphasizes the Chevelle's long rear quarters and unique C-pillar treatment. Gaps are excellent all around, and the paint is worlds better than even the best finish available in 1967, with a shine so deep you can almost swim in it. All the correct SS details are there, too, including the blacked-out tail panel, fluted taillights, and the trick hood with simulated vents that were a Chevy trademark for years. Fresh chrome bumpers were installed, all the stainless was polished to match, and new badges and emblems were installed in the original locations. There's a black stripe running along the lower edges of the bodywork, offering just enough contrast to really make the cream-colored paint really pop.
The code 763-B black bucket seats were restored to original condition as well, with fresh foam and seat covers that replicate the original patterns exactly. The slick center console houses a chrome shifter for the Muncie 4-speed manual gearbox underneath, as well as the optional clock, which is a cool little detail. All the original gauges are intact and fully functional, with super crisp, bright restored faces and augmented by a small, cleverly-mounted tachometer off to the left side where it's useful, but not a dominant part of the décor. New black carpets, reproduction door panels, and a taut headliner give it a showroom fresh look inside. And yes, this is a factory A/C car and the system has been restored, which is always pretty cool in a big block bruiser like this. The only notable deviation from stock is an AM/FM stereo head unit and upgraded speakers, but the look is rather subtle. In the trunk, you'll find a reproduction mat and a full-sized spare tire assembly with jack.
The car was restored a few years ago and that build included a 1970-dated L34 396 detailed for show. Although the factory rated the L34 at 350 horsepower, performance suggests there might be even more on tap. Using an original 4-barrel carburetor atop a factory intake manifold, iIt fires up with a snarl, and idles in a way that lets you know there's big horsepower on tap. Externally, however, it looks ready for show, with Chevy Orange paint on the block, chrome factory valve covers, and proper decals on the open-element air cleaner. The Muncie M21 4-speed was rebuilt and spins a 12-bolt with highway-friendly 3.08s and a Posi unit that were just installed recently. The chassis is super clean and highly detailed and features a dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers that sounds awesome. Classic Torque Thrust wheels are period-perfect and wear fat 225/70/15 front and 235/70/15 rear BFG radials.
You couldn't duplicate this car for the asking price, and it's a fast, reliable, highly detailed SS that will win fans wherever it goes. Call now!
