Great colors, great detail, and a great deal of power for the
upgraded big block make this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 tribute
the powerful hardtop with a great amount of appeal.
Butternut Yellow is a great factory color on a Chevelle like this.
It seems to represent its era correctly in a bright and distinct
way. Plus, it makes for a nice contrasting backdrop to the Super
Sport upgrades, like the dark grille and blackout rear. There's
even a black tape stripe running the full length of this car. The
Super Sport badging, hood vent trim, and pillarelss hardtop profile
are all part of that ideal muscle car look. Bright chrome bumpers
and upgraded Rally wheels add plenty of shining charm, but there's
nothing too overdone so that you're afraid to enjoy a big block
Chevelle like this out on the open asphalt.
For the same reason why we like the black accenting against the
yellow exterior is why we love the factory-correct full black
interior. And not only does this have the ideal color combo, but
also you can tell they made some solid investments in keeping it
fresh. The carpet, headliner, and the dash all look newer, and the
details are nice. The seats have a good feeling with insignia trim,
and the taut door panels are done to match. It feels like a true
classic coupe experience, right down to the AM/FM radio and the
1967-correct side tach with integrated turn signal.
The engine bay is filled with tidy big block power. This may be an
SS396 tribute, but the motor decodes to a true era-correct Chevelle
396 cubic-inch V8 block. It's attractively dressed with a bold
orange block, chrome valve covers, and 396 air grabber. In fact,
the whole setup is ready to be shown off thanks to everything from
smooth inner walls to a newer brake booster. The V8 inhales deeply
with a four-barrel carburetor with Edelbrock Performer intake. It
fires up readily while making a terrific big block sound out of the
dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. The three-speed automatic
transmission has a stall converter to keep you in the ideal
powerband, and that feeds a 10-bolt rear end. Plus, features like
power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front, and wide BF
Goodrich T/As make for an all-around driving classic.
Big block hardtop Chevelles are always in-demand, so you know you
need to get your hands on this well-presented true classic. Call
