Chevelle SS 396
BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED '69, BIG BLOCK 454 V8, AUTO, FLOWMASTERS, FACTORY A/C!!
This 1968 Chevelle SS is sure to hit a few high notes with Chevy fans: Big block engine. Red paint. Factory A/C. And 100% ready to rumble.
Classic Matador Red sure looks good on the Chevelle, doesn't it? Chevy's intermediate got a big facelift that started what is arguably the most popular line of muscle cars, and there's no question they got it right. Bodywork is excellent throughout, with great gaps and a smooth finish thanks to a lifetime spent someplace warm. Look how nicely those quarters fit, the smooth, unbroken line that runs from nose to tail, and the gaps on the doors; this car was put together very carefully. The black vinyl top is surely a recent addition, because it's just too nice to be original, and there's no rust or signs of trouble underneath. Four headlights up front frame a shiny SS grille, while out back, a blacked-out tail panel with correct SS emblems highlights the bumper. The emblems say '396' and that might be what this car was packing originally, but today there's a burly 454 under the hood. I don't care what you're driving, you're going to think twice when a big block Chevelle rolls up next to you.
Inside, this one looks fantastic thanks to a set of beautiful black buckets with a factory console featuring the coolest shifter ever invented. The original gauges are in great condition, more evidence of an easy life, and the center console offers a horseshoe shifter that's still the coolest way to pick a gear. The back seat also sports new seat covers, and fresh black carpet was installed throughout the passenger compartment just a few years ago. Factory A/C is a great upgrade, but it shouldn't be too surprising considering where the car came from, and the big block doesn't seem to mind turning the compressor. The radio is a new AM/FM/iPod unit feeding speakers in the package shelf. In back, the very clean trunk offers a replacement mat, a jack assembly with full-sized spare tire on an original steel wheel.
The original engine is gone, replaced by a 454 cubic inch big block, although you wouldn't know it by looking. Nicely detailed, it shows almost no signs of use, and will show very well at the local cruise night. Chevy Orange covers the block, while original-style chrome valve covers and open-element air cleaner with proper decals provide a little eye candy and help complete the illusion. As I mentioned, there's factory A/C with modern components, including a March accessory drive system that looks pretty slick. That potent big block is ably supported by a TH400 3-speed automatic turning a durable 12-bolt rear and the chassis is the reason why this car will be your favorite. The Flowmaster exhaust system makes that unmistakable big block sound and terminates in chrome tips under the rear bumper. The suspension is stock, the brakes have been rebuilt, there's a new gas tank out back, and it rides on a set of great-looking 15-inch SS wheels wearing 235/60/15 BF Goodrich T/A radials.
Clean, fast, and virtually bulletproof, this is the kind of Chevelle you've always wanted. Go ahead, indulge yourself and give us a call today!
