For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle convertible in a fantastic triple black is already an attractive idea when you want a mean machine drop-top. And as you dig a little deeper, you'll discover that this backs up its aggressive style with a performance-built fuel-injected big block, a five-speed to control it, and an upgraded suspension w/four-wheel disc brakes. It makes for a slick restomod that's equal parts intimidation and award-worthy.

The first impression is a mix of speed and sophistication. The '66 cars blend artful touches (like the subtle Coke-bottle curves) with subtle aggression (like the intimidating overhang on the hood.) And this one really does it right. There's less than 3,800 miles on this build, and so the black paint has that instant look of quality that comes from a large recent investment. Before they even laid down the color, they made sure it had a good canvas with straight sheetmetal and good gaps all around. Mirror-like bumpers, crystal clear headlights, and an amazing fit of the convertible roof shows there's no detail that has gone unnoticed. It has an aggressive look that earns its SS upgrade, including the blacked-out grille, hood vent trim, ribbed rocker panels, and all the correct badging - right down to the Super Sport scripts on the rear fender. And the added red pinstripe loves to highlight the curves of the profile as well as go with the brake calipers. Plus, for added aggression and shine, there are the US Mags wheels done with a 18/20 inch stagger front/rear for a terrific stance.

Beneath the crisp black roof is a nice black interior. So with the exterior, roof, and interior all deep and dark, this one completes the upgrade to the ultra-desirable triple-black! And because this is a restomod, the seats have been upgraded to new units with far better bolstering and finished in supple ultraleather. You'll also see thoughtful detailing, like the red stitching to go with the exterior accents. Even the trunk is done to match. There are some nice upgrades in comfort, like the cup holder center console and an AM/FM/XM radio with USB and Bluetooth. But the moment you sit down in the bucket seat, you know this one is all about being a driver's car. You have a Billet steering wheel on tilt column, Hurst shifter, a dash dominated by AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges, and an EFI tuner in the glovebox.

Under the hood is a very clean and mean powerhouse. The exterior badging might say 396, but this is really a fully built 511 cubic-inch big block V8, custom built by Box Performance just outside of Cleveland, OHIO. And not only do you get more displacement, but also there are more go-fast goodies. It was enhanced and fortified with an Erson hydraulic roller cam, Erson roller lifters, a forged crank, Pro-Filer aluminum heads, H-beam rods, and Mahle pistons with 10.25:1 compression. It's also supported by the right pieces, like a serpentine belt setup and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. The Holley programmable electronic fuel injection system gives you the best in power and consistency. And there's long tube headers to make sure this awesome powerhouse gets to exhale with the big power and a thundering authority. Best of all, you are in firm control thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. Plus, there's power steering, the grip of modern sport tires, and a four-wheel power disc brakes package with drilled & slotted rotors.

The sale comes complete with an engine build breakdown summary, dyno sheet, and car cover. This is the ultimate muscle machine drop-top, and it can all be yours if you act fast enough. Call today!!!
