1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Convertible Clone1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Convertible delivers big block power. But since it's already an update over the original, they took the time to give the right added features like an A/C interior and an upgraded air ride suspension. So dig into the details of an iconic classic that's ready with the features you want.
The 1966 Chevelle is the right car for some Super Sport upgrades. After all, Chevy updated the styling for some added aggression, including a front end overhang like a furrowed brow. So now it's upgraded with the blacked-out front end, blacked-out rear panel, full SS badging, ribbed rockers, and the faux vents in the hood to give it a speedy look. And the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels are a terrific period-correct style upgrade, but they have a large 17-inch size to accommodate better modern tires. While all this give the convertible a performance look, we also love these for the overall classic style. The wide chrome bumpers shine like new. The color was changed over to the 1966-correct Marina Blue, and with the white convertible top in place, it has all the appeal of an ocean wave.
The all-blue interior has plenty of that classic style. And this even has the right vintage features you'll love, like the bucket seats up front and a center console in-between. But you also know they took the time to upgrade the driver's experience. There's a B&M sports shifter, grippy Lecarra steering wheel, and the full gauge package has been upgraded to crisp AutoMeter units. The power convertible roof means you can quickly enjoy open-top driving, and the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input means the best in modern driving tunes. And because you have modern R134a air conditioning blowing nice and cold, you can enjoy this convertible to the fullest, even in the summertime.
Under the hood there's enough polished components on this big block upgrade that you'll proudly show it off. Plus, you'll love driving it, too, because it's a 396 cubic-inch V8 with upgrades like a double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, Holley intake, and a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. Plus, there are nice supporting components, like the MSD ignition, Optima red top battery, and a Griffin aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans to help keep you running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. As you look underneath the car, you're going to spot some more terrific upgrades, like the adjustable air ride and sway bars front & rear. Plus, the full suspension has been upgraded to tubular arms. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front, and this is a great anytime cruiser.
Complete with service manuals, this is a well-done SS tribute that's made for open-top enjoyment. Don't miss this deal, call today!
