This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 has been restored to get
everything right - a standout color combo, L34 big block motor,
four-on-the-floor, and the right enhancements to keep this a
street-eating machine. If you are a fan of horsepower and have been
looking for just the right SS to satisfy your needs, look no
It's time to make others green with envy with this paint. The metallic green looks quite a bit like the 1969's Fathom Green, except when the sunlight hits the sheet metal, it releases a world of metallic element that only comes from investing in modern paint and a professional hand applying it. The result is a coupe that can standout while respecting its iconic history. But the investment in this one goes well beyond the paint. The new vinyl top and bright shining bumpers means this coupe is fast with class. All the Super Sport details are right, too. This includes the dual power bulge in the hood, correct SS badging, and Mag-style SS wheels upgraded to 15-inches.
The interior gets the full green treatment, too, as the factory-correct door panels meet fresher carpeting and headliner to all have a coordinating color. We know you love the look and individual comfort of the button-top green bucket seats with a center console in-between. There's plenty of interior space to take up to four family and friends along with you. Plus, the heat/defrost and an upgraded AM/FM stereo with iPod input will keep them all happy. But really, you're the one that matters most in the muscle machine. Your right hand will just always gravitate to the Hurst shifter, and your left one will love the three-spoke sports steering wheel. It also gives you a clear view of the full instruments, including the very important tach.
All the horsepower you'll be enjoying is compliments of a thundering 396 cubic-inch L34 big block V8. This is a 1969-correct JC block, and you can instantly tell there has been plenty invested under the hood because of the quality of the newer components. It looks great with the bold block paint, shining valve covers, and matching air topper all radiating with power from within the glossy dark engine bay. Plus, there are great performance components like the Edelbrock intake, four-barrel carburetor, headers, and a performance X-pipe Magnaflow dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this big block power and its thundering soundtrack thanks to the close ratio M21 four-speed manual transmission. This sends power to the stout 12-bolt rear end. In fact, while the housing is believed to be original, it was rebuilt only about 100 miles about with Positraction and versatile 3.31 gears. While you're checking out the rear end in the undercarriage photos, don't forget to look at the front, too. There you'll spot a new upgrade to strong tubular A-arms and new bushings. This is added to other great driving features like power steering, front disc brakes, and sway bars front & rear. The total package gives you big power for the streets and all the right tools to easily harness it.
Complete with plenty of build receipts and the owner's manual, you're looking at the icon that looks great and drives even better. That makes for the perfect collectable to show off everywhere. Don't miss out, call today!
