1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Coupe
Like the Tri-Five Chevys that came before it, the Chevelle is one
of those cars GM aced right out of the gate and continued to
perfect. Eventually, the marque became one of the strongest brands
in automotive history; and at one point, with a full list of body
styles, options, trim grades, color combinations, and engines which
ranged from mild to outrageous, literally embodied the 'custom
built' nature that defines the muscle car era.
Over the past few years, we've certainly seen some nice Chevelle SS
Coupes. This example will have you singing the blues as it is all
buttoned up and a former California car, now residing here in PA.
It is sporting a new big block 402ci V8 and has a Holley to feed it
copious amounts of gas. Paint is great, and the interior has been
refreshed. Turn the key and make some smoke and noise and impress
your Chevy friends and make your Ford enemies frown!
As we gaze into the deep blue metal covered exterior our eyes skim
past well minded gaps, new perfect trimmings in chrome and
stainless, correct badges, dual headlights, a bumped black accented
hood, tinted windows and smooth rust-free metal. I love the back
design of this car with its flying buttress B pillars framing the
rear glass and melting into the trunk lid with wrap around rear
quarter taillights, and SS and 427 badging with a horizontal black
band just above the bumper, emphasizing the "wide trac" look. Some
glass beading has brought back the original 15-inch wheels which
now have shiny beauty rings rings and centers, all wrapped in
Swing the blue vinyl covered door frame open to the interior, and
what do you now have? The interior! Yes, its snappy, yes, its sexy,
yes, it's like new with its smooth low back vinyl buckets trimmed
with chromed edging. Give the back of the car permission to place a
bench that stretches from side to side for some extra passengers to
enjoy your driving, and mimic the buckets, and you are in...1967
heaven. Racing through the buckets is a blue vinyl molded center
console complete with a Hurst shifter. This console, ending upfront
and looking at that original dash with blue padded top overhanging
a stainless strip of applique that runs underneath from door top
door. Directly in the midst of this level in front of the driver is
the original instrument cluster level. The vintage style radio is
in the center and button for the passenger glove box in front of
the passenger seat. Then level 4 where we note a large blue metal
painted panel with 5 rows of controls from A/C to outlets to heat
to defrost to fan speed to just plain fresh air, and the glovebox.
Then the basement if you will with a hanging trio of volts, oil
pressure and water temp aftermarket gauges and a large tachometer
just to its side....bring on the oohs and aaaaahs! Also note a
factory tilt steering wheel, not often seen in this era of muscle
cars. Blue carpet in clean condition floods these floors and above
a nicely tightened blue vinyl headliner is all good.
Underneath the dual vented in chrome hood is the 402ci V8 complete
with orange painted block, a Weiand intake manifold, and a 4-barrel
780cfm Holley carb atop. On back is a 5-speed manual transmission
sporting a new flywheel, pressure plate and clutch disc and
bearing. A 12-bolt rear is now on and has 3.73 posi gears. Exhaling
is courtesy newly installed coated headers. This engine bay has
just recently been repainted and detailed, and it looks like it.
Also, plenty of chromed bolt ons add more candy to the bay, and
certainly no corrosion.
Very well preserved and restored with nicely painted black frame
and unibody, new clean H pipe exhaust and mufflers, nicely
preserved floor pans and the bottom end of the engine is spotless.
Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners, and a new fuel tank hangs
from the rear under the rust free trunk deck.
Started right up and ran like a 1967 Chevelle SS with a 402ci V8 4
bbl should. Good braking, smooth shifting, and decent cornering, it
can get a little happy on the back if you get too goosey with the
boot. All was functioning nicely and worked on demand.
A very nice example of the 1967 Chevelle SS, with all surfaces
attended to on the refresh, a powerful mill looks great within the
fully restored engine bay. A new interior and lets now belt out
