1967 Chevelle SS396

This is a significant purchase - I would request a serious buyer inspect the car. I am available to assist. Please contact me if you have any questions.

This is a true SS396 (vin 13817) that has been totally restored – every bolt and nut. This car won best of show at the first car show it went to – over 100 cars registered in Parkland Florida. Mileage on the odometer show a little over 800 miles – that is since restoration completion. Mileage on the title is “exempt”.

The body and chassis were separated and the body sent to be chemically dipped.

The frame was in very good shape – little to no rust – sent to the sand blaster for complete cleanup. All chassis parts that were retained (a-arms etc.) were media blasted prior to painting with Eastwood’s chassis black. Every suspension component is new. The front disk brakes and rear drum brakes are all new. All new brake and fuel lines were installed. The rear 3.55 axle was completely rebuilt. Every attempt was made to keep the car as original as possible.

The body once returned from the dipping process and placed on the rotisserie had all new metal welded in. New interior floors trunk floor rear panel behind package tray rear quarter patch panels and rear panel above bumper were all welded in and ground smooth. The body went back to the chemical dip for one last rust removal upon return placed back on rotisserie and then completely coated with epoxy primer inside and out. The fenders and doors were repaired as necessary and also coated with epoxy primer. The replacement hood and trunk lid were also prepped and coated with epoxy primer. All body work was then completed and sprayed with high build primer. After dry sanding there were more coats of primer sprayed for the wet sanding process. When ready for paint the car was sprayed with sealer base coat (Bolero Red – original color of the car) and then clear. Once cured the body was sanded and buffed.

When I found the car there was no motor or transmission installed. I was able to locate a correct date coded 396 block. The engine was built around that block. The machining was completed by the local Chevy hot rod shop. A complete roller cam lifters and rockers system from Comp Cams was installed – the Thumper cam (2500-5000 RPM) was used. Edelbrock aluminum heads Sanderson headers Holley Street Avenger carburetor and electronic ignition were all installed.

The transmission I located is a 1967 Muncie M-21 – it has been totally rebuilt and shifts like a dream with the Hurst shifter installed. The clutch is a Center Force and covered by a Lakewood bell housing. All new motor and transmission mounts were used as well as all bolts and nuts.

An all new updated wiring harness was installed.

The interior is all new from PUI. The original seat configuration was a bench up front. I converted to bucket seats welding in the floor adapters to insure proper fit. Every part of the interior is new – headliner dome light seat foam seat covers dash pad gauge cluster (including pressures and temp gauges) with the correct tachometer (with signal light) door and side panels all handles and knobs radio (front and rear speakers) carpet door sills kick panels and on and on. The console is an original 67 Chevelle console new courtesy light works with a new quartz clock installed. The seat backs are original 67 Chevelle metal seat backs.

I have photos of the full restoration process and receipts for purchases along the way. If you have any questions about the car or want additional photos please contact me through eBay.
