Vehicle Description

This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 Tribute is a sleek blue hardtop with a monster big block crate V8 under the hood. Best of all, you get to enjoy this full muscle car package from the comfort of a well-restored A/C interior.

The trim tag tells us this was born a Marina Blue coupe, and the way it radiates in the sunshine today signals a quality investment in a modern clearcoat finish. So it can make a great first impression as people can spot the glow from blocks away. As this one gets closer, you get to show off the Super Sport upgrades, like blackout SS grille, matching rear panel, ribbed rockers, and hood vent trim. Bright chrome bumpers, good body lines, and complete trim show that this one gets the fundamentals right. Plus, the large dual exhaust tips and upgraded 17-inch alloys are the kind of things that signal this one is special even if people don't see the 454 callouts.

The black interior is factory-correct, and the total presentation has the appearance of all the right investments. The seats, door panels, carpeting, and headliner all have a deep color and look of quality. It all makes for a nice coupe to share with family and friends. There's even more ways to keep them happy with an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner with aux input and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. But this one was really made to keep the driver happy. Bucket seats and a center console are great classic pieces. This is joined by upgrades like an auxiliary gauge trio, Bosch tach, and a wood and chrome sports steering wheel mounted on a convenient tilt column.

The engine bay was made for you to showcase this motor. The clean inner fenders and firewall can't help but funnel your attention to the ZZ454 performance crate Chevy V8 in the middle. This beast of a motor is nicely dressed with the finned black valve covers, a matching air topper with 454 callouts, and tidy block radiating power from within the dark engine bay. These crate motors come right out of the box with nice features like aluminum heads and a performance intake. Plus, this one inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with power as Hooker headers feed the Flowmaster dual exhaust. So while Chevy rates this at 469 horsepower when new, there might even be more ponies in this one! This has quality pieces surrounding it like a large aluminum radiator, TCI three-speed automatic, and a stout Auburn Positraction rear end. And while you have beastly power, it's also easy to tame with power steering, power brakes with discs up front, modern performance tires, and upgraded adjustable coilovers in the rear.

Complete with build receipts and service manuals, this Chevelle is both serious sleek and seriously powerful. So when it's also loaded with the best features, you know this is the ideal all-around muscle machine. Call now!
