1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Coupe
Like the Tri-Five Chevys that came before it, the Chevelle is one
of those cars GM aced right out of the gate and continued to
perfect. Eventually, the marque became one of the strongest brands
in automotive history; and at one point, with a full list of body
styles, options, trim grades, color combinations, and engines which
ranged from mild to outrageous, literally embodied the 'custom
built' nature that defines the muscle car era.
Over the past few years, we've certainly seen some nice Chevelle SS
Coupes. But this vivid 1967 Chevelle, with a 396ci V8, smooth
Muncie M21 4 speed manual and muscle car stance underpinned with
new front shocks, and new rear upper and lower control arms, is
definitely one of the hottest. With a complete restoration 12 years
ago, our current owner and consigner has done a lot of recent
wrenching on his own to "upkeep" that restoration. Fully sorted and
ready to hit the road, this awesome Chevy combines its racy engine
with vintage Detroit style that's classy enough to lead a parade.
And today, it is a reliable and exceptionally comfy place to spend
a few days behind the wheel just driving, it's also an authentic
piece of Americana that'll be welcomed at virtually any car show in
Riddle me this captain...What happens when you take the body off
the frame, remove all rust, sand panels down meticulously then re
hang them on to a restored frame, and as you are hanging them, mind
their gaps perfectly. Bathe them in a coat of deep end of the pool
driver's quality Hugger Orange paint, polish all the chrome
trimmings and hang that on top of the painted steel panels, throw
on some sexy polished Cragars and Mickey Thompson rubber, and front
the entire thing with an SS badge?? You have this car and the
potential to have it sitting in your driveway, and gracing your
garage, that's what. How about those oranges??
Swing the black vinyl covered door frame open to the interior, and
what do you now have? The interior! Yes its snappy, yes its sexy,
yes it's like new with its smooth low back vinyl buckets trimmed
with chromed edging. Give the back of the car permission to place a
bench that stretches from side to side for some extra passengers to
enjoy your driving, and mimic the buckets, and you are in...1967
heaven. Upfront look at that original dash with black padded top
overhanging a wood applique that runs underneath from door to door.
Directly underneath this level is the original instrument cluster
level with an added in tachometer to far drivers left. The vintage
style radio is in the center and button for the passenger glove box
in front of the passenger seat. Then level 4 where we note a large
panel with 5 rows of controls from A/C to outlets to heat to
defrost to fan speed to just plain fresh air, and the glovebox.
Then the basement if you will with a hanging trio of amps, oil
pressure and water temp aftermarket gauges and the chronolog clock
embedded into the center console. Also, in the console what to my
wandering eyes does appear? A Hurst Shifter...bring on the oohs and
aaaaahs! Black carpet in clean condition floods these floors and
above a black vinyl headliner with some wrinkles and slight low
hanging areas (it's not tight but still right).
Underneath the dual vented in chrome hood is the 396ci V8 complete
with orange painted block, and Edelbrock intake manifold, and a
4-barrel Holley carb atop. A Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission
sporting a new Centerforce clutch (4/1/2020) is strapped to the
back of this mill, and a 12-bolt rear is now on. Exhaling is
courtesy Sanderson headers, and this engine bay has just recently
been repainted and detailed, and it looks it. Also, plenty of
chromed bolt ons add more candy to the bay.
Fairly well preserved with nicely painted black frame, new exhaust
and Magnaflow mufflers, nicely preserved floorpans and the bottom
end of the engine is spotless. Power brakes are on all 4 corners,
discs for the front, and drums for the back. Consigner states discs
have been upgraded. All looking good underneath.
Started right up and ran like a 1967 Chevelle SS with a 396ci V8 4
bbl should. Good braking, smooth shifting, and decent cornering, it
can get a little happy on the back if you get too goosey with the
boot. All was functioning the consigner also states that an A/C
unit will come with this car, but is not installed.
A definite driver quality paint job that has some battle scars, but
still looking like it just came out of the booth overall. A
wonderful presenting and running 396ci V8, and snappy interior
looking mostly original, and we have a fine driver example of the
1967 Chevelle SS. Orange you now interested too??!
