1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS

Is it a race car for the street or a street car with race car DNA? Either way you look at it, his 1966 Chevelle SS 396 is a formidable performer with some serious hardware under its gorgeous bodywork, articularly the 540 cubic inch big block. This is the kind of car that will appeal to everyone no matter what you're doing: driving, acing, r showing.The way this car looks is no joke, nd the investment in time and money is obvious everywhere you look. If you're a fan of the early Chevelle look, ith its beautiful flying buttress C-pillars and simple, nadorned body, hen this car might ring all the right bells. Nothing was modified or deleted, ut it received a lot of care during the build with straight quarter panels, ood gaps, nd, f course, hat vivid bright red paint job that was completed just a few months ago. With a brilliant shine, he car simply glows in the sunlight, nd it's set off by the towering cowl-induction hood that gives it that race-ready look. All the correct SS gear is there, oo, rom the blacked-out grille to the '502' badges on the front fenders, o the tail panel with its own way of reminding you what just passed you. Unfortunately for anyone hoping to get the better of this particular Chevelle, ven those 502 badges are just false advertising, ut we'll get to that later.But first, ave a look inside where there's a handsome bucket seat interior that perfectly captures the Chevelle's dual-purpose nature. The seats, oor panels, nd headliner are nicely restored and look quite stock, nd there are recent carpets on the floor to tie it all together. The original instrument cluster is now full of big Auto Meter dials gauges that offer a high-performance look that seems right at home inside the vintage Chevelle. A B&M shifter stands proudly between the seats (it was born a 4-speed, hich is why the clutch pedal is still hanging there, ou know, ust in case), nd there's a bank of rocker switches in the center of the dash that really help with the competition look. However, here's also an AM/FM/CD stereo that actually sounds pretty good with the big block rumbling away up front. The trunk has been neatly refinished, oo, ith spatter paint, reproduction mat, nd a matching spare tire assembly.OK, ow about that engine. Not only does have a mere 400 break-in miles, t's actually a 502 punched out to 540 cubic inches and built for combat. With an high-rise intake and 1050 Dominator carburetor, ou know there's some serious horsepower underneath that chrome air cleaner. Blacked-out valve covers, rodix aluminum heads, nd Chevy Orange paint add to its no-nonsense look, nd you'd better believe it runs right, ranking out more than 700 horsepower. Thundering to life easily and barking through a set of long-tube headers with Flowmaster mufflers and pipes that feed subtle tips under the rear quarters, here will be no mistakes about this car's intentions. The built TH400 3-speed automatic from Performance Automatic can handle the torque, specially with a 4000 RPM stall torque converter. There's a custom chromoly driveshaft feeding a 12-bolt full of 3.73 gears multiplies the torque so well it'll wrinkle pavement. The floors are solid and it has been upgraded to four-wheel disc brakes for a lot more stopping power. Tires are 245/60/15s up front and 295/50/50s out back, itted to vintage-looking aluminum wheels.Not subtle, ut a wonderful blend of hardcore performance and show car glamour, his Chevelle delivers a new twist on an old theme, nd it really is insanely fast.
