1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396

It's not just that this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 makes a great first impression, ut with a full rotisserie restoration and date correct big block V8 under the hood, t's also a drop top that the admiration grows more the longer you spend with it.You can instantly tell there was a lot of time, are, nd money invested in getting this car into this superior condition. A full rotisserie restoration in 2007 means the body you show the public is straighter and more uniform than what came out of the factory 47 years ago. The reapplication of the code 53 Glacier Blue means this car looks correct but has an extra sparkle in the sunlight that can only come from a professional respray with modern paint formulas. And it's good that no one changed the color on this because the light blue is the perfect compliment to the pristine white top. The final coordinating piece is the correct SS396 white side stripes that emphasizes the gentle arc of the '69 Chevelle's profile. The chrome on the Super Sport is a bit more understated then on the standard Malibu, nd so that means every piece of brightwork needs to really shine to standout. That's why it's good to see everything from the big bumpers to the delicate trim around the wheel arches replaced during restoration. But as much as this convertible goes for elegance, o one will mistake it for a pushover thanks to the correct five-spoke SS wheels.Parchment/white bucket seats are what you get with this factory code 791 interior. The original center console is excellent, nd comes complete with everyone's favorite horseshoe shifter. This coupe feels exceptionally original inside with the carpets, oor panels, nd dash all looking amazing. The driver gets the three-spoke sports wheel, nd beyond that is the round gage setup that even includes a tach. All the vents, auges, nd even the heat/defrost control have that great classic GM look and feel. This one even still has the Astro Ventilation tag next to the glovebox, hich really tells you the level of detail in the restoration. While all this gets your heart racing from an enthusiasts standpoint, he practical side of you will see that this has enough room to take all of your family and friends along when you go for a drop top cruise.Under the hood is a 396 cubic-inch big block V8 filling up the engine bay. It's no surprise this one has all the details right considering the level of quality on the interior and exterior, ut what you'll really love is that this is a date-correct 1969 396 block. In fact, his car is believed to be numbers-matching but the engine block was decked at some point so we couldn't confirm it 100%. The casting number is #3955272 so it's correct for the year and leads us to believe this probably is the original engine. A major auction company SOLD this car in 2007 and they claimed it to be numbers-matching at that time. It's dressed with new wires and hoses, nd it was built to run with a four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer intake. This combination comes together perfectly every time you turn the key and hear the wicked rumble of the dual exhaust. But more than just hear those pipes, ake a look at the pipes' full path in the undercarriage pictures. That way you can also take note of this Chevelle's exceptional condition in places most people don't even see. But don't just use this for a museum piece. With features such as power steering, H400 three-speed automatic, nd front disc brakes, his SS396 is a lot of fun on the road.This is an exceptional restoration of a muscle car convertible that came with all the right features right from the factory.
