1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 ConvertibleThis 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 Convertible is a real-deal Super Sport with its numbers-matching big block still under the hood. Plus, the V8 has upgraded power, you have an upgraded A/C interior, and the color combo is well-coordinated. So the result is an all-around striking classic.
A Chevelle convertible is always a rarity, but to have a real-deal 138-code SS396 droptop is a true muscle car dream. The package is nicely coordinated with the red paint and white SS stripe that go nicely with the white convertible top. So this one has the kind of all-American color theme as a Coca-Cola bottle. A proper SS396 like this has a cool hint of a dark side, too. The special trim package makes the blacked-out Super Sport grille look like it flows right down to the black rockers that run the full length of the car.
The white interior coordinates nicely with the overall theme seen on the exterior. So that makes for a well-done package inside and out. Two wide rows of bench seating give you plenty of space to share the classic convertible experience with family and friends. This even has nice upgrades to keep them happy like an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input and Bluetooth, and there's upgraded R134a air conditioning. And because you really want to drive this SS396, there are handy driver upgrades like the auxiliary gauge trio and large AutoMeter Autogage tach added within a clear view.
The SS396 was its own model designation in '68, and so it's great to have the numbers-matching 396 cubic-inch big block still under the hood. But you can also see they invested in this V8 for extra power. It has upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers that feed the X-pipe dual exhaust. Plus, this has the right quality supporting components, like an upgraded ignition, billet pulleys, and an Optima red top battery. There's even a new aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans to help keep this running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. The result is a powerful package that runs strong. It makes for a good driver's machine, especially with the stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and sway bars front & rear.
This is the SS396 that has everything you want - from proper big block power to an A/C interior. That makes for a total package classic you need to get your hand on right now. Call today!!!
