A real-deal 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 fresh off a restoration
with a terrific color, like-new interior, and serious big block
power means you're looking at an award-worthy muscle car in a
Get ready for all of your car friends to stand up and take notice
of this one. Aztec Bronze is this coupe's factory-correct color.
Not only is it a bold standout, but also Chevelle people know this
was only available in '66. So to have a real-deal code-138 Super
Sport finished this way is true rarity that's worth all the
investment. The color is part of a professional respray later in
life, and so it has a butter-smooth feeling over the super-straight
panels and a terrific clearcoat luster. And all the SS details are
correct, including the blacked-out grille, ribbed rocker panels,
faux hood louvers, and full SS396 badging. And as you look over the
details, you really begin to see the full investment in this coupe.
There was a body-off restoration completed 100 miles ago, and so
this one is fresh, right down to the window rubbers.
This freshness continues on the inside. You can instantly see how
good it looks in the pictures, and it's even more impressive
in-person! New carpeting, panels, and supple insignia trim seats
make this one feel factory fresh. Even the details were sweated in
this coupe, so the dome light woks and the clock is ticking away at
the top of the center console. But they also added the right subtle
improvements. For example, the radio has a great retro-style
appearance, but it's a modern AM/FM unit with a digital tuner.
Plus, you have nice performance pieces like the sports steering
wheel and auxiliary gauge trio - which help you enjoy the big block
This car represents a significant dividing line. 1966 was the year
that Chevelle Super Sport really started to live up to their name.
No longer just an appearance package, SS396 was a separate model
with the big 396 cubic-inch V8. So with something this significant,
it's great to see a year-correct block that's believed to be
original to the car. The restoration made sure the 396 looks
amazing as the freshly-painted orange block, bright valve covers,
and matching air topper all radiate from within the glossy black
engine bay. Within this tidy presentation is the power of a Holley
four-barrel carburetor and Holley intake. This helps the dual
exhaust give a truly fierce growl. And getting power to the
pavement is easy thanks to the strong TH400 three-speed automatic
transmission that feeds the stout 12-bolt rear end with
Positraction. There's even power steering and front disc brakes.
And as you look over everything, you'll once again see that the
right details were addressed. Everything from fresh bushings to the
large aluminum radiator make this a great cruising classic.

really let you enjoy its power and distinction. Quality and
performance like this doesn't stay long in our showroom. Call
