Chevelle SS 396
EXCELLENT BIG BLOCK 396 V8, MUNCIE M21 4 SPD, FRONT PWR DISCS, NICE PAINT & INT.
This real-deal 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 is one of the meanest-looking years for the GM A-Bodies. With such an original appearance, it's only fitting that this coupe has a street-eating big block under the hood. Add in the right options, and plenty of documentation, and this is an irresistible Super Sport.
You've got to love the sleek pillarless coupe body on this SS. You would think that these cars would need big dual stripes on the hood, the hallmarks of most Chevy SS vehicles, but instead this wears the correct white side stripe that emphasizes the gentle arc of the Chevelle's sheetmetal. And let's face it, with a name like LeMans Blue, this paint has no need for racing stripes on the hood. This is not original paint on the car, but instead it has been updated with its 1969-correct color. This means this Chevelle has a much deeper hue than any of its contemporaries that have been around for over 45 years. The chrome on the cars of this year is a bit more understated. They still carry the big bold bumpers that the '60s are famous for, but everything else is used to highlight the aggressive touches, like the rear wheel arches and the bar going across the blacked-out grille. Of course this package wouldn't be complete without the special five-spoke SS wheels.
Inside, you see a clean and pristine black bench seat interior, where all the vinyl on the seats and doors still look amazing. The driver gets plenty of goodies. You will rest your left hand on the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and your right one will just always gravitate to the new Hurst shifter. Plus, there's a set of auxiliary gauges, so you always know that's going on in the engine bay. But since this A-body has room to easily carry five more people, you keep everyone comfortable with features like the original heater/defroster, and upgraded AM/FM/cassette player with modern digital tuner.
All the horsepower you'll be enjoying is compliments of a thundering 396 cubic-inch L34 big block V8, that's been properly dressed in bright Chevy Orange paint and chrome valve covers. Situated between the satin black fender wells, this classic BBC looks fairly stock, and that's because it almost is. This is a suffix code CE warranty replacement block that was installed in 1969. It gives this car an interesting lineage that is similar to numbers-matching because all work is Chevy official, but it's a much more entertaining story to tell at the car shows. This monster motor breathes nicely thanks to the recent rebuild of the Rochester Quadrajet 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, and a Dynomax dual exhaust system. All this power reliably gets to the road thanks to the Muncie M21, close-ratio, four-speed manual transmission and the stout 12-bolt rear end. As much as this is a true muscle car, there's plenty of everyday drivability features such as front disc brakes, and modern BF Goodrich tires.
