1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 TributeThis 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Tribute gets the Super Sport attitude right in everything you see from the desirable factory-correct color combo to the big block power under the hood. So dig into the details of a powerful and iconic hardtop.
This car is quite striking from its first impression as it mixes speed with sophistication. It's in the way the '66 cars blend artful touches (like the flying buttress C-pillars) with subtle aggression (like the intimidating overhang on the hood.) And this one really does it right. The Regal Red is the factory-correct color, and this one shows that they made a solid investment later in life to keep it shining. And a standout color like this just begs for the added intimidation of the SS396 package. Faux hood louvers, ribbed rockers, full SS badging, and bright Rally wheels all look terrific here. Plus, there are some nice added details, like the half moon headlights and the black vinyl roof that draws even more attention to the distinct hardtop style.
Not only do we like the added sophistication of the vinyl top, but also it makes for a nice preview of the factory-correct black interior. The seats, door panels, dash, and headliner all have that kind of deep and dark look that lets us believe there was quality investment in the interior. But this is far from a sea of darkness. There's plenty of shiny trim on the Chevrolet sports steering wheel and long dash with long horizontal speedometer. It's even to spot shining upgrades like the retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo and Sunpro auxiliary gauge trio.
A proper SS396 tribute means a 396 cubic-inch big block filling the engine bay. It looks nice with the bright block, as well as the bright valve covers and air topper both with 396 callouts. Plus, your big block power is enhanced with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and long tube headers that feed the newer H-pipe dual exhaust. There are nice supporting components to make this a nicer driving machine, like the electric choke and newer brake booster. In fact, this has some nice all-around driving features, like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front.
This is the sharp-looking and big power SS396 tribute. So if you like a true muscle machine, call today!
