This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle is a mixture of style and substance.
You've got a great color combo inside and out that proves you know
how to arrive on the scene. And those who don't see you will
certainly take note when you let the big block growl on this proper
SS 396 tribute.
You've got to love the sleek pillarless coupe body. The
1969-correct white SS side stripe emphasizes the gentle arc of the
Chevelle's sheetmetal. And the door fit nicely to make sure this
full-length streak continues like an almost unbroken line. It's
these kinds of details that let you know someone invested nicely in
this Chevy. So this has an attention-grabbing presence. The
factory-correct LeMans Blue is always a desirable color, and this
one was given a professional respray later in life to make sure it
continues to shine nicely. This bright blue does a great job of
contrasting some of the darker Super Sport trim pieces, like the
blacked-out grille, blacked-out tail panel, and the Mag-style SS
wheels. Plus, attention was paid to all the details - everything
from the dual power bulges in the hood to the shining chrome
bumpers - so the result is both stylish and aggressive.
The white exterior stipe look great against the exterior blue, and
it's a similar story with the bright parchment interior. Also, just
like the exterior, this has a detailed look right down to the
button-top seatbacks and SS396 badging in the door. It really has
the full classic style and feel, right down to the dash. That's why
you have the functioning heat/defrost sliders and even the Delco AM
radio still works. It also gets the Super Sport feeling right with
a wood-rimmed three-spoke sports wheel, and beyond that is the
round gauge setup that even includes a tach.
These Chevelles are known for their big block power, and so it's
great to lift the hood and see one with such a tidy display. The
bold orange block, clean hoses, bright valve covers, clean air
grabber, and correct decals are all part of a package that we know
you'll love to show off. In fact, year-correct 396 cubic-inch block
was said to have been recently rebuilt by a previous owner. And the
way this one runs strong reaffirms its quality care. The V8 inhales
deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority
out of an X-pipe dual exhaust with Pypes mufflers. So you get some
serious power and an irresistible growl when you mash the
accelerator. The stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission
feeds a 12-bolt rear end. And the boxed trailing arms and rear sway
bar firmly keep this power to the ground. The power steering, power
brakes, and front discs mean cruising is also easy in this
This is an iconic Chevelle restored to be the ideal tribute SS. So
