1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396
This 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is no aftermarket rebadging of a lesser version of the model - it's the real thing and it is awesome. This special edition Chevy wears its original shade on its exterior, harbors period-correct, big block power under its hood and has only logged about a thousand miles since its very extensive rebuild - just enough to get in some thorough road testing and tie up any loose ends. All the hallmarks of a skillful and thorough restoration are on display here. The mountain green paint this classic muscle car wears provides a great look and it's in very nice shape, with an even shade sitting under a strong clearcoat to produce a very impressive shine. This Chevelle left the shop only a few years back, where it benefitted from a frame off restoration. When it came time to put the pieces back together, it was done with a lot of precision and you'll find nice even gaps surrounding the body panels, with doors, hood and deck lid that open and close just as smoothly as when this car was new. There's clear glass on all sides of the cabin, surrounded by fresh-looking rubber seals to keep the elements out. All the exterior chrome fittings are looking sharp, from the broad front grille Chevy added just the year before this '67 came out, and the windshield and rocker panel trim, on back to the Super Sport badging that provided fair warning to its muscle car competition. What appears to be a nearly new interior is just inside the doors in factory configuration. There hasn't been much traffic venturing inside the doors, so the black vinyl surfaces of the front buckets and rear bench seat are still looking their best, showing no creasing or wear marks. The seating is bracketed by door panels in the very same condition. A trio of aftermarket gauges sits just above a great looking center console, joined by a generously proportioned tach just to the left of the speedometer, as the only add-ons inside. The dash area looks very sharp, with its assortment of factory gauges all functional and easily readable, chrome accents that are in top shape, and a straight and supple dash pad sitting on top. Factory in-dash vents are at both sides to bring air-conditioned comfort into the cabin. The trunk area is nice and clean, with a plaid liner on its floor that matches the covering over the spare tire. There's plenty of power under the hood, with a period correct 396 cubic inch V8 sitting at the center of a show-stopper of an engine bay, surrounded by braided hoses in place of their more common rubber counterparts and several other eye-catching chrome components. It's armed with an aluminum intake manifold and a Holley 4-barrel that sits underneath a properly badged chrome air cleaner, as well as a pair of chrome valve covers on its sides. A performance cam has been added to up the big block's output and it also provides a nice, appealing lope - nothing drastic, but just enough to let you know there's a serious engine on board. The 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission just behind it offers an overdrive gear for engine sparing low RPMs at highway speeds. Power steering makes this upper echelon Chevelle easy to navigate while power front disc brakes offer fade resistant stopping ability as this outstanding Chevy takes to the streets on its 16" chrome Rally wheels wrapped in redline radials. With a meticulous restoration leaving it in outstanding condition both inside and out, this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 will impress even the most experienced of car enthusiasts. Call today!
