Chevelle SS 396
#'S MATCHING 396CI CHEVELLE SS, BUILD SHEET, AFTERMARKET A/C, TILT COLUMN ADDED
Cranberry Red, black stripes, black interior, 396 cubes under the hood... do you really need to read any further? Some combinations are so timeless that you can picture them in your sleep, and Chevelles like the clean '70 you see here is one of them. It's got the right stance, the right wheels and the right rumble, too!
Outside, this classic is coated with a nice quality paint job accented by clean chrome. Twin black stripes add a menacing look that few muscle cars can pull off, but the Chevelle nails it. The cowl induction hood is a must-have on a Chevelle, and this one looks great with hood pins at the corners. The blacked out grille and SS badge up front are pure intimidation in other cars' rear view mirrors and the gaps are better than most. This is a car to be proud of.
Inside, the optional bucket seats and center console are a ton sportier than the standard bench. Full instrumentation is in front of you along with the factory AM radio. The 5500 RPM rev limit coupled with the SS396 badging means this car was born an L34 car, which specializes in smooth torque and great manners. You'll see the factory heater controls are gone in favor of a brand new aftermarket A/C system, which takes R134a and blows ice cold. The dash pad and bezel are clean, and the newer door panels sport a very unusual option: power windows.
Under the hood is the original 396 engine, well dressed and lightly modified. A proper cowl induction air cleaner is in place along with new chrome valve covers. An Edelbrock Performer RPM intake adds a few more ponies. New ceramic coated headers add more than a few more. A new alternator and belts are in place, as is a Holley carb and MSD ignition components. Power steering hangs off of the driver's side below the new A/C compressor while power brakes take up residence on the firewall. The engine's orange while the firewall and inner fenders are properly black. And let's face it: muscle cars go great in a straight line, and they're pretty nice cruisers. Underneath this car, though, you'll find upgrades that you don't normally see, all aimed to make it a better handler. A pair of fat aftermarket sway bars are in place, and there are boxed lower control arms out back. A set of Bilstein shocks with custom valving by RCD are at all four corners, and at $400 a set you simply don't see them on the road all that often. Disc brakes in the front bring the car to a halt while a full 3-inch exhaust with Dynomax mufflers provides the soundtrack. Chevy Rally wheels carry BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires, 245/60/15s in front and 275/60/15s in the rear. It's a great stance that helps out the handling even more.
There's the majority of a build sheet and documentation on the motor that follows the car, which is essential since there's nothing in the VIN or on the trim tag to prove the car's SS status. It's great for peace of mind and even more important for future resale value. Head turning, great sounding and even better driving, this Cranberry Red SS reminds you why these cars are perennially popular.
