For 1968, the Chevelle got an all-new distinctly sculpted body with
tapered front fenders and a rounded beltline. The car adopted a
long-hood/short-deck profile with a high rear-quarter "kick-up" and
hardtop coupes featured a semi-fastback, flowing roofline. The
'68's also rode a new sportier 112-inch wheelbase and tire tread
width grew an inch front and rear. Top-trim models (including the
SS 396 and new luxury Concours) featured GM's new Hide-A-Way wiper
system and the Super Sport became a series on its own.
Additionally, manual transmission cars got GM's "Air Injection
Reactor" (A.I.R.) smog pump.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this '68 Chevelle SS 396. The car originally sold new in Cleveland, Ohio. It is a 138 code true SS 396 Chevelle.

The 396 is period correct and was rebuilt in 1979 and has 2200 hours on it since rebuild.
