Vehicle Description

This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute Convertible has exactly what you want. You have proper big block proper, a proper SS suspension, and the proper look of a sharply-done drop-top classic. So we bet you already know you need to be properly quick about this one.


This car is quite striking from its first impression in the way it mixes speed with sophistication. The '66 cars blend artful touches (like the subtle Coke-bottle curves) with subtle aggression (like the intimidating overhang on the hood.) And this one really does it right. The blue paint has a deep shine and even a hint of metallic. So the sunlight love this sunshine-friendly convertible. And it only gets better with a super-straight body that lets the light roll evenly across the whole package as it highlights the awesome curves of the Chevelle. It has all the right Super Sport upgrades, like the ribbed rockers, full badging, and louver trim on the hood. Plus, the blacked-out SS grille goes nicely with the clean black folding roof. And because we love the brightwork on these classics, it looks mirror-like everywhere from the window trim to the chrome king bumpers. And those upgraded REV alloys wheel add to the shine while also giving this an aggressive 18/20 inch font/rear stance.


With the flip of a switch, the crisp black roof powers down to reveal a nice black interior. So you get a striking contrast against the bright blue with the top up or down. This was an upgrade later in life, and so the carpeting is plush, the seats are crisp, and the dash is smooth. And this sea of dark black is broken up by plenty of classic bright trim. This is the kind of car that family and friends will want to take a ride, but it's also absolutely a driver's machine at its heart. That's why you have front bucket seats, a center console in-between, a floor shift, Chevy's sports steering wheel, and a tach correctly mounted on the column.


Under the hood is a very clean and mean powerhouse. The badging might say 396, but this is actually a larger 454 cubic-inch big block V8. And this one hides its added displacement well with a factory-style look, everywhere from the bright orange block to the clean GM hoses. There's even a proper Holley four-barrel carburetor on top. But what makes a muscle machine like this an all-around great classic are the driver-friendly features. For example, the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to handle the enhanced V8, and it's also smooth enough for Sunday cruising. There's also power steering, power brakes with front discs, upgraded sport tires, and an SS-style 12 bolt rear end with reinforced boxed trailing arms and a sway bar.


Here's a beautifully restored Chevelle convertible that has also been enhanced with a great-running big block. This is properly a total package classic that you don't want to let slip away. Call today!!!
