When you can find a real-deal Super Sport 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle
SS 396 that has all the features you want - including a big block
and a unique color combo - and has an overall quality presentation,
well then, you already know how great of a deal this is.
For many, the '69 SS 396 is the perfect balance of speed and
sophistication, and this one showcases all of that particularly
well. The factory-correct Olympic Gold is a more sophisticated
color than a red or a black Super Sport, especially with the level
of gloss and shine seen here. And the white vinyl roof just adds to
the premium tone. Of course, the dual power bulges in the hood,
blacked-out grille, blacked-out rear panel, and proper SS-mag
wheels all make sure it has the right intimidation factor. In fact,
while it's sometimes difficult to prove a real-deal Super Sport
from this year, we have a copy of the original window sticker that
gives us confidence that it has earned those SS 396 badges.
Another great premium feature is when the roof color is a preview
of the full interior color. Besides, white interiors always have an
upper-class kind of look. It all looks particularly nice, clean,
and correct inside - right down to the button-top seatbacks. So
you'll proudly leave all the windows down on this pillarless
hardtop just so people can get a good look inside. Not only is it a
quality interior, but also they took the time to keep it looking
very stock. So the Delco AM radio still powers on, and this a
factory air conditioning car (it will need servicing to blow cold
again.) As a Super Sport, this is also a driver-oriented machine.
That means great features like a high-back front bucket seats, a
center console in-between, the iconic horseshoe shifter, and even
an added tach on the steering column.
It's always great to lift the hood and see an engine bay stuffed
with proper big block power. In fact, this is a 1969-correct
JE-code 396 cubic-inch V8 block, and so it's believed to be the
original motor for this coupe. The polished valve covers and air
topper give it a little flair, and the Holley four-barrel
carburetor and rumbling dual exhaust add extra substance behind the
V8. Plus, the way this one fires right up lets you know its eager
to hit the road. And features like a stout TH400 three-speed
automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up
front, it's easy enjoy this SS all weekend long.
This is the big block Super Sport that has been kept correct to
give style and vintage distinction to all that big block muscle. So
don't miss you chance at something that grabs this much attention.
