1969 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport
Although this slick Chevelle's Cowl Tag says it originally wore an attractive coat of GM code 57 Fathom Green there won't be many guys who argue its sinister GM code 10 Tuxedo Black 2-stage isn't a big improvement. And to their credit the restorers did more than just spray fresh paint they got the body straight the gaps exact and the panels flat and wave-free. Of course one quick look tells us this convertible's 2012 restoration WAS more than just the 'deal of the week' treatment. And in fact c...areful examination reveals a frame-off nut-and-bolt rebuild during which no expense was spared to restore every square inch of the car's sculpted metal to better-than-new condition. If you walked into your local Chevrolet dealer in 1969 and said you wanted a Chevelle with a great combination of power and livability chances are you'd receive an engine just like the 396 cubic inch L35 V8 you see here. Wearing a correct 3955272 casting number this impressive mill utilizes a nodular iron crankshaft hydraulic lifters oval-port closed chamber heads and 2-bolt main caps to turn stout 10.25 to 1 compression into a nice round 325 horsepower. Behind the stout big block a smooth shifting Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed sends power to a 12-bolt posi-traction rear end that's stuffed with easy driving gears. That awesome drivetrain rides a fully rebuilt double A-arm front and 4-link rear suspension that features fresh coils fresh KYB shocks and a larger diameter front sway bar. Providing greatly improved turns and modern car stops is factory optioned power steering and correct fully rebuilt power front disc and rear drum brakes. And at the corners of the car correctly painted 14 inch Super Sport wheels spin vintage looking G70-14 Firestone Wide Oval tires around pristine trim rings and correct "SS" branded center caps.
