TRUE 138 SS, 396 V8, 4 SPD, FRNT PWR DISCS, VERY CLEAN, GR8 PAINT, NICE INT, A+!
You're looking at a real-deal 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396, but this icon of American muscle has been enhanced with even more big block power. So it's hard not to love an upgraded monster motor with four-on-the-floor that's all contained within a premium burgundy/black color combo pillarless hardtop.
This car is quite striking from its first impression in the way it mixes speed with sophistication. It's in the way the '66 cars blend artful touches (like the flying buttress C-pillars) with subtle aggression (like the intimidating overhang on the hood.) And this one really does it right. The deeper tones of the burgundy paint make it more mature than red, and the deep clearcaot shine 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 black vinyl roof. This was the first year for the Super Sport 396 as its own separate model, and this coupe wears its unique pieces with pride, including the blacked-out grille & tail, faux hood vents, ribbed lower trim panels, and all the correct badging – right down to the Super Sport fender scripts. And of course, no sporty Chevy would be complete without iconic Rally wheels.
We love it when the vinyl top matches the interior color. Not only does it make for a great uniform appearance, but also it's another sign of a thoughtful restoration. 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 black appearance that makes us believe there was quite a nice investment in the interior. But this is far from a sea of darkness. There's plenty of shiny trim on the original-style steering wheel, long horizontal speedometer, and upgraded knob-style AM/FM/cassette stereo. Plus, you can't miss spotting the performance features like the upgraded auxiliary gauges, large panel-mounted tach, and the cue ball shifter boldly protruding from the center console.
You'll love lifting the hood at car shows because everyone enjoys seeing an engine bay stuffed with big block power. In fact, you can just tell this one was built to show off with its bright cast valve covers and overall tidy presentation. But more than just look great, this V8 has been upgraded for plenty of performance, too. Those SS badges say '396', but the truth is there's a 402 living under the hood. When it was rebuilt 2,000 miles ago, they fortified it with go-fast goodies such as roller rockers, Mallory ignition, Holley four-barrel carburetor, and Weiand Team G intake. You'll understand why they say "there's no replacement for displacement" the moment you turn the key and hear the roar of the dual exhaust. You're in complete control of this monster motor and its symphony thanks to the desired four-speed manual transmission. Plus, the Positraction rear end and front disc brakes make taming this beast easy.
So yes, this is the kind of pure intimidation muscle machine that you've always lusted after at the car shows and cruise-ins. Now is your fleeting opportunity to go from admiring to admired. So don't wait, call today!
