For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Chevrolet's first-generation Chevelle is a timeless design that, no matter how it's built, always remains fresh and alluring. Stock, modified, race, pro-touring, whatever: the clean lines and balanced stance on these tough muscle machines mix classic swagger with a modernist look that serves as the perfect platform for a variety of modifications. And best of all, the Chevelle line's universal appeal and high production numbers mean it has one of the largest aftermarket support networks in the entire collector car hobby. An authentic Super Sport coupe that's been converted into one of the sickest rides around via massaged chassis components and a massaged 396, this red-hot Chevy is a sweet magazine centerfold that's just waiting to be discovered. Looking for a fully-sorted cruiser that puts a hot rod spin on an old school favorite? Take a look at your next car!

LIGHT THE TORCH

The beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration that shows exceptionally well, this razor-sharp resto-mod wears a clean and solid body under vivid Torch Red two-stage. At the front of that gloss, an attractive Super Sport grille centers a prominent "SS396" emblem between a mirrored bumper, small parking lamps and bright halogen headlights. Behind that grille, a chrome-trimmed Super Sport hood creeps toward straight stainless frames, which join polished wipers and painted drip rails to cage smoked glass. At the sides of that hood, familiar fender flags and quarter-mounted "Super Sport" scripts cage stylish bowtie mirrors and traditional door handles. And out back, a "C H E V E L L E" branded valance hangs vintage taillights and a second "SS396" emblem above a second chrome bumper.

FUEL FOR FIRE

Few cars fit the 'muscle car' description better than a Chevelle. Clocking in at exactly 402 cubic inches, this coupe's rowdy 396 twists epic horsepower into miles of low-end torque! At the top of that legendary mill, an aluminum air cleaner drops breeze through a coated Holley 4-barrel, which rides a polished Edelbrock Performer RPM intake. That intake floods cast iron heads, which tilt hardened seats and smooth hydraulic lifters between a hydraulic cam, trick Chevrolet valve covers and a .030 overbore. Compression gets sparked by loomed Taylor plug wires and a hot HEI distributor. A polished Billet Specialties V-Trac drive spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. A big electric puller fan plays well with a big aluminum radiator. Exhaust rolls through long Hedman Hedders. And the car's smoothed, Satin Black engine bay is dotted with choice detailing like billet tanks, trick dipsticks, a polished brake booster, a quality Wilwood master cylinder and a coated fuel pump.

BUILT FOR SPEED

Bottom-side, the monster mill spins power through a traditional Muncie 4-speed to a familiar 12-bolt axle that's finished with an open differential. That proven drivetrain rides an adjustable Heidts 4-link, which pushes a fully independent front-clip that's been thoughtfully upgraded with modern coil-overs and beefy Heidts control arms. That suspension, planting the car three inches lower than stock, gets led by a power-assisted Classic Performance Products steering box. Stops are provided by power-assisted Wilwood calipers, which squeeze a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. Large-diameter pipes breathe through welded, dual-chamber mufflers. And at the corners of the car, attractive Billet Specialties Fuelies spin 235/45ZR17 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 255/45ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs.

HEADING OUT TO THE HIGHWAY

This Chevelle's thorough restoration included the installation of an era-correct vinyl interior that's as timeless now as it was in 1966! Firm Super Sport buckets cage a factory console that's centered on a short Hurst shifter. A familiar Super Sport dash hangs slick Dakota Digital VHX telemetry next to modern audio and Vintage Air conditioning. Fade-free side panels parallel fade-free carpet that's protected by color-keyed floor mats. The driver spins a sweet Billet Specialties Draft wheel. And the passengers store essentials in a custom upholstered trunk.

Sometimes the best cars are the ones that speak softly. No blower sticking through the hood, no fat tires on a stiff chassis and no wild graphics; just a clean, classy and well-constructed muscle car that was purpose-built to look good and run great. Featuring timeless style, great performance and a great restoration, this authentic Chevelle Super Sport is an absolute blast to cruise and show. Don't miss your chance to own a powerful, well-sorted muscle car that's as timeless today as it was 55 years ago!
