1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396

To start with, et me first say that I understand that there is a lot of information in my ad. I also understand that this may be boring to the person who is just looking and not buying. However, or the person who is looking to buy and spend their hard earned money, feel that there is never too much information.

As to myself, am not a dealer, ust a (65) year old kid that loves muscle cars. For my work, recently retired from managing a Correctional Facility here in Maine and had worked for the Maine Department of Corrections for (40) years. I am also a respected member of my community. I mention this only because of the value of this car and so that prospective buyers will have some idea as to who they are dealing with. Also, lease check out my eBay feedback which is 100% with (1,136) transactions.

INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS ARE WELCOME WITH A DOWN PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL AND THE BALANCE VIA WIRE TRANSFER ONLY.

I ALSO HAVE INTERNATIONAL BUYER REFERENCES FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO CHECK.

Hypothetical question: If you were to visit your local weekend car show, hat’s the most common mid-size muscle car you would most likely see in attendance? The answer: Chevelle, nd there’s a very good reason for that. The Chevelle was one of Chevrolet’s most popular models it has ever sold, t was one of the best selling cars of its era, nd it remains to be a model that is coveted by hot rodders and collectors alike.

Introduced on September 26, 963 and built between model years 1964 and 1977, he Chevrolet Chevelle was available in a wide array of body styles; everything from a two-door sport coupe to a four-door estate wagon. Chevrolet, fter realizing that their Impala model was seemingly growing by the foot, eeded a mid-size model to fit in between it and the recently-released compact Nova/Chevy II.

Chevrolet, anting to get their point across that this was a driver’s car, nd not a stripped-out racer, ncluded every comfort and convenience Chevelle option available, ncluding a tachometer, o the driver could keep a close eye on his revs that the L37 provided, 160mph speedometer (presumably to help keep Johnny Law out of his or her rear view mirror), nd deluxe front and rear seat belts to help keep occupants safe and in place, n the event that the vehicle’s owner ever decided to go crazy and engage in any extracurricular activities. An AM/FM radio, added dash, nd a remote driver’s side mirror came as standard equipment as well.

1968 delivered a whole new redesign for the Chevelle and its A-body cousins. Featuring a shorter wheelbase, he immensely popular long-hood, hort-deck styling, long with a sculpted body and tapered front fenders, he new body style gave the Chevelle the muscular appearance that it rightfully deserved.

What would become the final year for the Chevelle, 977 added up to a miserable year. The sole “performance” option was a 170horsepower, our-barrel 350, hile a Chevelle SE (Special Edition) offered front and rear spoilers, urbine II wheels, pecial graphics and decals, ront and rear sway bars, 41 sport suspension and a deluxe interior, esulting in 50 of these being built.

As GM downsized its intermediate models for 1978, he Chevelle name was dropped, eaving the Malibu as the nameplate for all models. Today, he Malibu name is synonymous with Chevrolet’s desperate attempt to compete with the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, ot exactly the platform to bring the fabled Chevelle back with. Today, he Chevelles of the past are the greatest symbol of Chevrolet’s strength during these tumultuous years.

Although it existed a mere 13 years before it morphed officially into the Malibu, hevrolet’s Chevelle remains a beloved muscle car. The Chevelle SS was the carmaker’s high performance version of the Chevelle. Featuring its own line of performance products and engines, he Chevelle SS boasted the most powerfully rated engine of all the muscle cars.

For your consideration is this beautiful 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 4-speed replica convertible. Excellent body paint with black vinyl bucket seat interior. If you ever wanted a real Chevelle SS convertible, ou know that they are pretty much out of reach for the average person. This replica is as close to the original as you can get at considerably less money. Look closely at all of the photos as well as the video and see if it might be right for you.
