1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is a real-deal Super Sport with an awesome color combo, upgraded big block heart, overdrive transmission, and an A/C interior. It makes for one of the few times you can really get your hands on a true total package muscle car classic.
We love the blue finish on a car like this. It has the unmistakable glow of quality, and so the sunshine rolls off the body evenly and really shows off the quality of the body. It gives this coupe a premium look, and so it also has premium features, like the taut black vinyl roof and mirror-like chrome bumpers. Of course, as a real-deal Super Sport, it's not just about look upper class. There's intimidation in the dual power bulges in the hood, SS mag-style wheels, wide exhaust tips, as well as the blackout of the grille, headlight side extensions, and tail panel. And the iconic white D96 stripe package signals a true '68 SS396 while also giving another reminder of the straightness of this sheetmetal.
The black interior is what we love to see on muscle machines, especially when it also coordinates with the roof color. The seats, door panels, headliner, sun visors, and dash all have a deep and dark appearance from a quality investment. Low-back bucket seats, a center console, and a horseshoe shifter are all about that great vintage feeling. Even the Delco AM radio is still in the dash. But this one is also made to be a great all-around driver. So you have upgrades like a grippy sports steering wheel, aftermarket CD player mounted in the glovebox, and a cleanly installed auxiliary gauge trio. And the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a. So it makes it easy to roll down all the windows and enjoy the look and feel of this pillarless hardtop.
This real-deal Super Sport has proper big block power under the hood. Just like the rest of the car, this era-correct 396 cubic-inch V8 has the unmistakable look of a nice investment. The bright valve covers, bold block, newer hoses, upgraded serpentine belt system are all part of a tidy package. More than just look good, the big block power is enhanced with Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and headers feeding a rumbling Flowmaster dual exhaust. It's a quality package that fires up readily and runs smooth. In fact, they even upgraded this for better all-around use. The aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans help keep you running cool even in traffic, and the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission gives you the versatility of overdrive. This anytime driving attitude is heightened further by power steering and power brakes w/discs up front.
This is well-respected SS396, and we have a decade of detailed maintenance records to prove it. So if you appreciate substance and style, this Super Sport Chevelle is a home run. Call today!!!
