You're looking at a real-deal 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396, but this icon of American muscle has been enhanced with triple-deuce big block power. So it's hard not to love an upgraded monster motor with four-on-the-floor that's all contained within a premium and slick pillarless hardtop.
We're told this car was given a frame-off restoration, and it certainly has that kind of thoughtful style. The '66 Chevelle's flying buttress C-pillars make it a true sophisticate. So that seems to be amplified with premium details, like the black vinyl roof. Supers-straight sheet metal and bright chrome bumpers show more of a solid investment in keeping this looking first-class. But this is also a real-deal SS396, and so there's a sporty side. The paint balances that out well with its dark red metallic. After all, there are deeper tones than a candy apple hue, but it's still quite bold and vibrant. This was the first year for the Super Sport as its own separate model, and this coupe wears its unique pieces with pride, including the blacked-out grille, hood vent trim, ribbed rockers, and all the correct badging - right down to the Super Sport fender scripts. And this one shows off some added performance and flair with the bright racing style wheel with extra meaty rear tires.
We love it when the vinyl top matches the interior color. Not only does it make for a great uniform appearance, but also it's another sign of a thoughtful restoration. This handsome bucket seat interior perfectly captures this Chevelle's comfortable and performance dual-purpose nature. The seats, door panels, and carpeting have that kind of crisp black appearance that makes us believe there was quite a nice investment in the interior. There's plenty of room for family and friends in this coupe, but the driver is always the priority. You have a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, upgraded auxiliary gauges, a large AutoMeter tach, and that Hurst shifter is just calling out for your right hand.
You'll love lifting the hood at car shows because this special motor was made to be shown off. It has terrific details like the smooth inner fenders, plenty of polished components, and even the engine block was painted to coordinate. You even still have the classic washer refill bottle mounted to the fender! This lives up to the SS396 name with a 396 cubic-inch big block, but those three air grabbers tell you this one is extra special. It has a triple set of dual-barrel Holley carbs, and Chevy never offered the SS396 with triple deuces from the factory! This awesome big block is supported by all the right pieces, like an aluminum radiator, steel braided lines, and a full MSD ignition package. Plus, ceramic-coated long tube headers add extra power and rumble to the dual exhaust. You're in complete control of this monster motor and its high octane symphony thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. This feeds a strong 12-bolt Moser rear end. And power steering, power brakes, and front discs make it a solid all-around driver.
This is the kind of complete muscle car built that you've always loved. Now is your fleeting opportunity to go from admiring to admired. Call now!
