#'S MATCHING 396, RESTORED TO CORRECT COLOR COMBO, FACTORY A/C CAR, NICE SS!

It's no secret that we love Chevelles here at Streetside Classics, but sometimes something unusual shows up on our door step that truly blows us away. This pretty 1968 Chevelle is a nicely restored brute-force SS396, which is awesome all by itself, but throw in the unusual color combination and it REALLY stands out. Red is great, but if you really want to make a statement, this is the car you need.

Following a recent freshening, this Butternut Yellow Chevelle started wowing crowds across the south. It's easy to see how that was possible, since it's amazingly straight and brilliantly restored to factory specs. Forget a color swap to “resale red” or something ridiculous like that; instead they gave it a glowing coat of correct code Y Butternut Yellow, a glossy two-stage urethane that has a shine for the ages. It doesn't look as fast, but I assure you that this subtle Chevelle probably humiliated its share of Mustangs back in the day, and that color was probably used like bait. Correct black SS stripes were applied around the nose and down along the rockers, and they work well with the traditional blacked-out SS grille and factory hood. Lots of fresh chrome and polished stainless was part of ... Please ask for the full description.

#'S MATCHING 396, RESTORED TO CORRECT COLOR COMBO, FACTORY A/C CAR, NICE SS!

It's no secret that we love Chevelles here at Streetside Classics, but sometimes something unusual shows up on our door step that truly blows us away. This pretty 1968 Chevelle is a nicely restored brute-force SS396, which is awesome all by itself, but throw in the unusual color combination and it REALLY stands out. Red is great, but if you really want to make a statement, this is the car you need.

Following a recent freshening, this Butternut Yellow Chevelle started wowing crowds across the south. It's easy to see how that was possible, since it's amazingly straight and brilliantly restored to factory specs. Forget a color swap to "resale red" or something ridiculous like that; instead they gave it a glowing coat of correct code Y Butternut Yellow, a glossy two-stage urethane that has a shine for the ages. It doesn't look as fast, but I assure you that this subtle Chevelle probably humiliated its share of Mustangs back in the day, and that color was probably used like bait. Correct black SS stripes were applied around the nose and down along the rockers, and they work well with the traditional blacked-out SS grille and factory hood. Lots of fresh chrome and polished stainless was part of the restoration, too, so it truly sparkles in the sun. And the look of a black vinyl top on a light-colored car gives it a lean, elegant look that's a bit part of this car's charm.

The interior was also restored to factory specs, which includes a code 766 black vinyl interior. This is a factory bucket seat/console car restored to a very high level with correct details throughout the passenger compartment. The upholstery correctly duplicates the factory stuff, and with a three spoke steering wheel and that ultra-slick horseshoe shifter, it truly looks like a far more expensive car. Of note, this car carries factory A/C that's been upgraded to modern R134a (the blower motor does need servicing) and the original AM radio has been upgraded to a digital AM/FM unit. Just below is a trio of auxiliary gauges for the temp/oil pressure/voltage. The factory gauges include a somewhat rare tachometer and yes, that's a tilt steering column, so you really have no excuse not to get in and go. And just to give you an idea of how clean this car is, have a look at that ultra-clean trunk, which includes a reproduction mat and a full-sized spare tire assembly.

The real story here, however, is the numbers matching L34 396 cubic inch big block under the hood. With 350 horsepower on tap, it's hilarious to think that this was only the middle engine in the Chevelle SS in 1968. Rebuilt to stock specs (like you need more?), it's fairly stock-looking under the hood, although it's definitely seen some use since it was finished. However, the Chevy Orange paint, freshly chromed valve covers, and an open-element air cleaner with proper Turbo-Jet decals on top make it look quite authentic. The big block is backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and 12-bolt rear end, so the powertrain is virtually indestructible. There's a Flowmaster exhaust system for that familiar performance sound that you've admired at cruise nights and while not detailed, the undercarriage doesn't look to have any surprises for its new owner. Handsome Cragar's are wrapped in staggered BFGoodrich Radial T/A's so it handles beautifully and looks awesome.

If you're a fan of the unusual, then this Chevelle should appeal to you the way it did to us. Sometimes the best way to stand out is to not do what everyone else is doing. Call today!
