1969 Chevrolet ChevelleThis listing is for my 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 I don't think its an original SS but there is no way to tell on 1969 cars. Do not have a build sheet to verify.
I have added and changed the listing a little bit so here is the information on the car:
This car was purchased by the previous owner in 1992. Upon inspection, to paint the car, he noticed that the quarter panels were filled with mud (Bondo). At that time he decided to strip the car down and put new quarter panels, fenders, 12 bolt rear with Eaton Posi and 4:11 gears, Th400 Transmission with a TransGo shift kit, Transco 3800-4200 stall converter, B+M Pro stick shifter, Moroso Front and rear Trick Spring, Air bags in rear (not air shocks), South Side Lift bars, Rear sway bar, doors, bucket seats from Late 90's Chevy Cavalier, headliner, 396cid motor, floors (floors from a donor car), Half trunk (from Donor car) Disc brakes (from factory donor car) and turn the car into what he wante, which was a SS 396 car.
He rarely drove the car on the street. Made it to run at the track. He installed a 8-point rollbar. But he retained the lights, turn signals, brake lights, dash (dash from ss396 car). Once he had the car completed, around 2005 he went to the track around 7 times (11:00's was the best he managed with a 125 shot of Nitrous.) with it before parking it for the next 8-9 years. (you can see in the picture of the rear the spider webs from sitting I took this picture when I went to look at the car) It does have power steering. Like most of us, going to the track was an expense that he couldn't afford at the time he completed the car and that's when the car just sat in the garage.
He decided to sell the car which I purchased. The car was missing the rear interior panels, door panels (roll bar was in the way), visors, dome light, arm rest, factory style bucket seats, window cranks and wiper motor. I wanted to make the car more of a nice street driver. I cut the rollbar out and added the items that I just mentioned and a new carpet and removed the nitrous system. I just had the car inspected (PA) this past month. It runs good with plenty of power. Cruising around the temperature stays around 170-180 in 85 degree weather.
I just recently took the Aluminum Radiator and electric fan's out and put a 4-core copper brass radiator with mechanical Thermal Clutch Fan and also the battery back up front where it belongs. There are several more items I am going to change while this listing is active. Mostly cosmetic clean up under hood..
It is a beautiful driver quality but it shows extremely well. I would rate it a 8.5 - 9 out of 10. As mentioned before there are some imperfections in the paint and so on. (no dings). This is the kind of build you don't mind to drive as you do not have to worry about messing up a true SS car (we think). This was and is meant to be driven!!!! The pictures of the car were taken about 3 months ago. The guy I purchased from is a mechanic and not a body guy. He did an excellent job fitting the panels and painting the car for not being a body guy. Every where you drive this car, people notice and give their nod of approval.
Block casting number appears to be: 3955272 which is a 1969 396cid, 402cid either 265, 325, 350,375, 2&4 bolt. The date code is not readable. As seen in pictures the Block casting is for a 1969 only year.
Edelbrock Aluminum Heads made for TBI Motor which raised the compression to around 10.5:1. I have been using 92-93 octane fuel with no signs of detonation. The cam is a solid lifter .580 lift or so ( he can not remember exactly) He cant find the cam specs. Team-G intake with a 750 Holley Double pumper with front and rear 50cc squirters. I do not know what piston's other than forged or anything internally where used. But the trailer I purchased with the car has all name brand item stickers all over it. I do know it was rebuilt and put together by the previous owner. Has an 8 quart pan (no dipstick) He said drain and put 8 quarts) and Hooker headers.
He installed a sump on the original gas tank with a drain. He would start the car every once and awhile. When he planed on selling it he drained and put in new fuel and a battery. the car fired right up. I haven't had to touch it other than timing increased (no Nitrous) and I installed an alternator as the one he had on it was putting out 17 volts ( was not a 16 volt set up). Currently has 28x13.50x15 Mickey Thompson ET Street tires on it. May change before sale as I do drive this car. I have put maybe 300-400 miles on it since I bought it.
I am currently driving the car. (car shows and occasionally to work when its nice out) Speedo is off by 15mph at 55 it reads 70mph. Speedometer works just not accurate for the gears installed, all dash lights work. Missing cigarette lighter and has couple holes in dash were nitrous switch and revese light switch were installed. I put reverse light back down in shifter, where it belongs. Missing dash bezels for the Astro-Ventilation. I plan on still adding to this car as I drive it but once sale is over I will park and wait for pick up.
Battery was in the truck. I have a new battery tray and plan on putting the battery back under the hood. So there are small holes in floor of truck from Nitrous Bottle brackets and from the battery tray that have been removed.
He also had an electric fuel pump (Holley Black) in the rear. I removed and installed a Holley Mechanical. I am currently rebuilding the carb as some of the Air Bleeds are clogged (From sitting the 7-8 years)and it doesn't really need the 50CC primary pump shot. I added a Lokar Throttle cable and Bracket as well. He had a rigged stock setup ( not very safe)
Also, comes with painted hood seen in picture. I do not think It will clear with the current intake and carb combination. The header panel in front of the hood he painted black to match the cowl hood on the car now. He does not have the paint code or what the paint was from. you will need a good painter to try and blend this paint if you want painted body color.
I can take any picture of the car or video that you would like just to see, just email using Ebay and I will get to you ASAP. Ask as many questions and I will try to get them in a timely manner to you.
There is no warranty with the car. I suggest viewing before you make the decision to purchase. There will be a $500 non refundable PayPal deposit due within 24 hours of auction close. Full payment due within 2 weeks of auction end. I will assist with your shipping selection but it is the buyers responsibility to arrange pick up and at buyer cost. I can deliver up to 100 miles from 18947. Car can not be picked up or delivered until the form of payment has cleared. You are purchasing the car in "as is" condition. True mileage of car is unknown. Current speedometer reads around 70,000 but not original to car. Title shows "Mileage exempt"
I do have financing on this car. Car would have to be paid off before title can be released. It is through J.J's Best Bank and I would recommend them any day for purchase of a classic car.
If you need financing or partial financing look to companies such as "J.J.'s Best Bank" who offer 5 year loans on classic cars!!
Thanks for looking and good luck!!!
