An iconic real-deal 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is always going
to be in demand. But when this big block coupe also has all the
right features - from the bright blue paint to four-on-the-floor -
then you start to see why this is the restored Super Sport you'll
The allure of this coupe starts with a more recent professional application of the legendary Chevelle color Marina Blue. The modern and super slick clearcoat highlights all the elements we love about the '67, including the crisp lines, sporty kick-up in the rear fender, and the flying buttresses on the hardtop roof. Add to that brightwork in all the right places like extra wide bumpers, within the SS dual power bulge hood, and the correct ribbed lower rocker trim. It all comes together to create an iconic classic. But more than just a beauty, this one earns its racing flags on the fender (more on that in a moment.)
Inside, the deep black on the seats, doors, and carpets are all products of a good restoration. And because there has been a solid investment inside this Chevelle, it's a great place to spend time with family and friends. But since this is a true Super Sport, it only takes a driver to have a lot of fun. Your right hand will be immediately attracted to the Hurst shifter, and just ahead of that is a very useful auxiliary gauge trio. Your left hand will love the grip of the three-spoke sports steering wheel. This factory-correct style unit is so thin that it gives you an unobstructed view of the classic ultra-wide speedometer. In fact, this one has such a great authentic feeling that even the AM radio is still on display.
The bold and big 396 cubic-inch V8 looks terrific under the hood. After all, doesn't it just look like it's radiating power from within the dark engine bay? Plus, the shining valve covers and matching air topper add even more distinction. And more than just look aggressive, you can see that there have been all the right investments in fresher supporting components, like the alternator, brake booster, belts, hoses, and much more. The V8 inhales deeply thought a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority from the dual exhaust. And you have complete control over this big block and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Also, take some time to look at the undercarriage photos. The freshness of many of the components tells you about the total quality of the restoration. And they took the time to get the SS396 details right, too, like the reinforced trailing arms. Add in great driving features like power steering and front disc brakes, you have a stellar classic that's easy to show off everywhere.
Complete with restoration photos, this is the real-deal SS396 that has a great shine and an even better growl. So if you want to be the one that people remember, hurry up and grab this Chevelle. Call today!!!
