This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute Restomod is a full build
with the paint, A/C interior, five-speed, and big block and just
about every detail receiving a solid investment in upgrading within
the last couple of years. That makes for a fresh, powerful, fun,
and all-around outstanding muscle machine.
The 1966 Chevelle has a mean look that's ripe for an SS-style
upgrade. But the Super Sport grille and badging is just the
beginning of this comprehensive build. It put a more powerful face
forward with a super scoop hood with hood pins. And modern pieces
like the crystal clear headlights and a carbon fiber front splitter
are an instant announcement that this is a restomod. The 15-inch
Billet Specialties wheels combine with some wide Mickey Thompson
rear rubber to deliver an awesome stance. Plus, the tinted windows,
496 callouts, and large dual exhaust tips are all part of this
aggressive total package. And the paint is an interesting piece all
on its own. It's actually a wrap done in a vibrant red, and beneath
it is also cherry red paint. So you're likely to keep this vibrant
style going for many years to come.
The fresh upgrades and speedy attitude. Up front is a new bucket
seat pair that have terrific bolstering and modern headrests. The
door panels, rear bench, carpeting, and headliner have the dark
presentation of a well-done total package. There are even nice
vintage details, like the working clock in the center console. As a
true restomod, it's built with upgraded comfort features such as
the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth, cup holders,
and cold blowing R134a air conditioning. But you also know they
took the time to upgrade the driver's experience. The dash has a
cool/modern carbon fiber look, and it's now filled with AutoMeter
Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges. There's also a flat-bottom sports
steering wheel, a tilt column, and a strong Hurst shifter.
There was a big investment under the hood. In fact, the total has
over $14k spent to get something that looks this fresh and mean.
This is a 454 cubic inch V8 big block that has been bored and
stroked to 496 by S&J of Spokane, WA. It has been built with
performance goodies like a Demon four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock
hi-rise aluminum intake, and long tube headers feeding a
sweet-sounding H-pipe dual exhaust. Plus, there are nice supporting
components, like the Optima red top battery, new gas tank,
alternator, HEI ignition, and a serpentine belt system. There's
even an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans to help keep this
big block coupe running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C
pumping. You have full control over the strong motor thanks to the
upgraded TKO five-speed manual transmission. This feeds a strong
12-bolt rear end with versatile 3.73 gears and Positraction. As you
look underneath the car, you're going to spot some more terrific
upgrades, like the two-inch dropped spindles in the front, and UMI
Performance shocks, and reinforced rear trailing arms w/sway bar.
Add in power steering, power brakes, and front discs up front, and
this is the powerful Chevelle that's also a solid cruiser.
We can show you all the big and fresh investments in this hardtop,
but you can already see they've done big work to take this iconic
Chevelle and turn it into the muscle car restomod of your dreams.
