1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Restomod
You're looking at a real-deal 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396, but this icon of American muscle has been brought into the modern age with fuel-injected 572ci V8 power, an upgraded suspension, an A/C interior, and so much more. So when you wrap it all in a beautifully restored body, you know you're looking at the best of everything. 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. And with less than 2,150 miles on the build, this is basically fresh from the restoration. 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 in chrome on the rear fenders. And with upgrades like the cowl induction hood and 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with dark centers, keen Chevy fans are given some hints at the upgrades beneath the skin. Open the door, and you're greeted to handsome bucket seat interior with plenty of upgrades that perfectly captures this Chevelle's comfortable and performance dual-purpose nature. The seats, door panels, carpets, and headliner have that kind of fresh black appearance that lets you know there was quite a nice investment in the interior. But this is far from a sea of darkness. There's plenty of shiny trim on the original-style steering wheel, long horizontal speedometer, and across the stylized dash. This one gets your favorite elements right, like the center console with clock prominently in the center. But there are also a ton of upgrades. Some are subtle, like the modern R134a air conditioning running through the stock vent controls. Others are more obvious like the performance components such as the B&M floor shifter, AutoMeter water temp gauge, and large AutoMeter Sport-Comp tach with shift light. These instantly tell your senses there's something special under the hood even before you twist the key and hear it roar. Those exterior SS badges say 396, but the truth is there's something far more ferocious living under the hood. In fact, those red valve covers within the shiny and tidy engine bay do an outstanding job of announcing the 572 cubic-inch V8. So this one is award-worthy on the motor's presentation alone. This performance crate V8 is rated at 620 horsepower right out of the box. Plus, it has terrific enhancements like Accel electronic fuel injection, serpentine belt system, and performance headers. That last one feeds a large three-inch dual exhaust system, which should provide the kind of intimidating rumble you require from a big block classic. But any time you want people to know who's the king of the streets, all you have to do is open up the electric cutouts. And don't just listen to this thunderous sound; follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll spot an extremely tidy setup (thanks to low mileage) that includes terrific upgrades like tubular A-arms up front, modern springs, front disc brakes, and thick sway bars front & rear. If that looks like a great anytime driving package, then you'll love the other features, too. For example, this has a 4L85E four-speed automatic transmission that's stout enough for performance driving, and it also settles into overdrive cruising. The power steering is an upgraded Hydraboost unit, and the large aluminum radiator with dual electric fans means the whole package stays cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. Here's a real-deal Chevelle SS 396 that has been upgraded to leave you wanting for nothing. This is an absolutely awesome machine, so if you want the best of everything, call today!!!
