For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

This is the kind of muscle car recipe you love to see. Take a true 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 hardtop, add in extra big block power, give it a comfy A/C interior, and wrap it all in an extra sleek body still sporting the original colors... now you have a winner.

This coupe is truly a beautiful blue. You can see there was a serious investment later in life keeping this muscle machine looking this good. Plus, the glossy shine highlights the excellent body panels. So the sunlight loves to dance across this Chevelle's fender curves. The bright chrome bumpers and nicely contrasting black vinyl roof add to this car premium look. But an SS396 is also about the performance style. That's why you have all the correct pieces, including ribbed rocker panels, faux hood vents, Super Sport badging, racing flags on the front fenders, and big exhaust tips coming out of the rear.

The sea of blue is continued inside. There was a nice investment here, so the seats, door panels, headliner, dash, and more all feel fresh. This is built to be a performance machine, and so you get all the best SS-style features, including bucket seats and a center console. The dash retains a cool classic appearance and you'll love all the details, right down to the console's working clock. But there are also some great upgrades. For example, the mahogany and billet steering wheel on the tilt column is obviously not stock, but it's exactly what you want in a driver-oriented machine like this. The pillarless hardtop is the kind of feature that will make you want to roll down all the windows and go for a drive. So they also upgraded this to modern R134a air conditioning to make sure you can enjoy this sensation even in the summertime.

This is a real-deal SS396, so you want the engine bay filled with a big block power. This is a year-correct block that has been built for both style and performance. The smooth firewall and inner fenders funnel your attention to the bright valve covers, matching air topper, and bold block in the middle. You'll even spot nice vintage details, like the decals and washer fluid refill bottle mounted to the fender. Most importantly, this 396 cubic-inch V8 is built with a Summit Racing 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a nice set of headers feeding the H-pipe dual exhaust. It's a powerful package that fires up with gusto. The TH400 three speed automatic transmission is a stout unit, and it fees a year-correct 12-bolt rear end. And it's built to be a driver with power brakes, upgraded drilled & slotted front discs, power steering, and an SS-style rear suspension with stronger boxed arms and sway bar.

Complete with owner's manual, this offers beautiful paint, big power, and the right features in an awesome muscle machine package. So don't let this SS396 hardtop slip away, call today!
