1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SSRare Canada built 1969 SS Chevelle. Less than 1000 big block cars was made in the Canada plant in 69, last I knew only 75 have been documented to still exist. I have a bulid sheet i got from Canada.
Runs and drives, but needs restored. It is originally a 396 325 horse, 4 speed car. It has a 68-69 396(3935440) . but do not know if it is the original engine or not, the last few numbers of the vin stamp on the block is not legible. So assume it is not. Someone put a automatic in it, think it is a 350 turbo, but not for sure, someone originally tried to turn it into a drag car. Engine runs good, seems to have a new intake, edelbrock carburetor, and HEI distributor.
Body needs work, floorboard has rust, doors has a few rust spots on the bottoms. Has typical body rust on fenders and rocker panels. Needs rear seat brace, that someone cut it out for a fuel cell. This car is a good running project . I know, there are a lot of Chevelle's on ebay that state this with no proof of being SS. Lucky for this one it was built in Canada and they put all the options on the trim tag so there is no disputing it, And have the paper work to prove it.
Car originally came with the 396-325hp engine,4 speed, bucket seats, rear window defogger and the outer SS 396 appearance package. Car has been in Texas most of it's life but does have some rust. Car was in the process of being turned into a race car when the person lost interest(thank God).
Exterior: Looks to have all it's original panels. Quarters are original and have the numbers stamped into the rear trunk area. They have some issues but are salvageable. Doors open and shut good. Fenders are good but need some work at the bottoms. Hood, roof and trunklid are good and just need some small dents pounded out. Floors has rust and will need replaced or patched.
Interior: Looks all original. Seat are in good condition, door panels are worn, dash looks fantastic. Car was an original 4 speed and the tunnel hump is untouched and intact. Has an automatic shifter that is on 2 blocks of wood and is just there. I would think anyone who got this car would put a 4 speed back in it anyway. All three pedals are still present.
Drivetrain: Not sure about any originally so assume it's not. Has a 68-69 396(3935440). This baby hauls butt. It idles nicely but runs rich, will need carburetor adjusted, so yes it runs drives and stops. Tranny is an automatic and the rear end looks like the original 12 bolt. New fuel pump and Edelbrock carb and intake. All in all a great car to restore. You won't be pouring money into a car you can never prove. This one was born an SS and will always be one.
