Vehicle Description

This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 maximizes all the reasons why you love this classic muscle coupe. After all, with the best color combo, bucket seat interior, and a fire-breathing 396 motor, this one can make your dreams of a powerful hardtop icon a reality.

The updated red on this car has the right luster in the sunlight that can only come from a solid investment. Adding to the cool factor on this coupe is a taut black vinyl top and coordinating black SS side stripes. The SS grille, rear panels, and even the Mag-style wheels add to this correct-style dark accenting. This carries more of the correct Super Sport look with the bright dual exhaust tips, SS badging, and dual power bulge hood. The chrome on the Super Sport is a bit more understated then on the standard Malibu, and so that means every piece of brightwork needs to really shine to standout. That's why it's good to see everything from the big bumpers to the delicate trim around the wheel arches giving a mirror-like glow. And beneath all these details is a complete and clean classic, with panels that align nicely, a smooth style, and doors that close with confidence - giving you a quality feel in the fundamentals.

Black interiors always look great in these Chevelles, especially when they coordinate with all the exterior accents. Lovers of vintage style will appreciate the smooth dash, classic dual-spoke steering wheel, and how everything has the classic GM look and feel, right down to the heat/defrost sliders. Even the Delco AM radio is there for display. This is a driver-oriented setup with bucket seats, a center console-in between, and a horseshoe shifter making for a great place to rest your right hand. While all this gets your heart racing from an enthusiast's standpoint, the practical side of you will see that this has enough room to take all of your family and friends along for a ride.

Under the hood is a 396 cubic-inch big block V8 filling up the engine bay. It's dressed to impress with polished valve covers, matching air grabber, and bright orange block radiating power. It even has good fundamental with good belts, correct GM hoses, well-done wiring, and metal fuel lines. So it has the look of good car, and the way it fires up reaffirms it. The big block inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority as long tube headers feed the dual exhaust with rumbling Flowmaster mufflers. TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout and smooth setup, and it's the numbers-matching unit. This feeds a proper 12-bolt rear end. Power brakes and wide BF Goodrich T/As also contribute to make this a solid driver.

Bold looks and the big block power to back it up make this SS396 a true muscle car icon. So if you're ready to own the dream, call today!
