1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396

This is the kind of muscle car recipe you love to see. Take a two-owner 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle; add the period-correct 396 block; insert plenty of performance upgrades; and wrap it all in a beautifully restored body with Super Sport badging...you have a winner. Lemonwood Yellow is one of those defining colors for the Super Sport Chevys. Vivid yet innocent, it made these high horsepower cars feel unassuming, but they left an impression as they showed everyone their taillights. This one is particularly striking because it has been treated to a restoration where panels are so excellent that you'll wonder if that factory really ever did make them this straight. It wears its aggressive nature well with SS 396 badges on the front and rear, racing flags on the front fenders, and "Super Sport" boldly written on the rear in chrome to match the bumpers. Plus, this Chevelle SS clone has all the details right - from the twin intake hood to the ribbed color-accented lower body panels. And of course, we all love the Rally wheel package.The moment you open the door you'll swear it's 1966 all over again, and that's for a very good reason. The complete restoration included getting the interior back to factory spec. All the black and bright elements on the seats, door panels, and dash come together for a tasteful and uniform appearance. You can sit behind the stylized original wheel and enjoy the original instruments, including the cool extra wide speedometer. But as much as this feel like a 1960s time machine there is one subtle upgrade you'll love. The radio looks like the original knob-style unit, but it's actually an upgraded AM/FM stereo with an auxiliary jack to let you plug in your iPod. So classic cruising can now include modern tunes.1966 was the year that a Chevelle Super Sport really started to live up to its name. No longer just an appearance package, SS meant you were getting the big 396 cubic-inch V8. This big block has the correct casting numbers to be period-correct for this new revolution in Chevelles, but one look under the hood, and you know this one is far from stock. It was rebuilt with performance upgrades such as an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Offenhauser intake, roller lifters, and a Comp cam. It also shows particularly nice thanks to the brightwork on places like the alternator, valve covers, air cleaner, carb, and pulleys. But for those who don't get to see this upgraded motor, they will undoubtedly hear it thanks to the large dual exhaust. But take a closer look at this coupe, and you'll understand why it's more than just an outstanding muscle car. With an upgraded 700R4 four-speed overdrive transmission and new bushings, this one feels exceptionally solid on the highway. It also has front disc brakes and BF Goodrich tires to make sure grip is always well in hand.This Chevelle SS 396 has all the right details to win at the car shows right down to the included original warranty card, title documentation, and owner's manual. Still, this was restored to be such a great driver, you might not want to give up your weekend cruises long enough to collect the awards on the show field. Call today!!
