For Sale: 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

With its rugged, squared off first generation shape and strong-pulling 396 V8 big block power sitting under the hood, this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Tribute has been carefully configured to mirror the world-famous, upper crust Super Sport representatives of its model. With over $37K in receipts (which includes the rebuild of that fantastic drivetrain) it's obvious this restoration spared no expense, and the dialed-in red paint job, supremely comfortable bucket seat interior, and choice upgrades throughout highlight the success of the build. And although it may not be an original SS396 car (on this one it's a little tricky to verify without a build sheet), quite frankly this restored beauty will give any one of those stuffed-shirts a run for their money.

It can be argued that the Chevelle in its SS396 form represented its manufacturer's first intentional effort to land a winning contender in the muscle car wars of the '60s. The model received a fairly thorough updating just a year before this '67 debuted, receiving a brawnier overall look, and the broad track and robust front end, along with the distinctive flying buttress rear roofline featured here, are evidence of Chevy's handiwork. It's a top driver-quality muscle car, but we mean that as a pure complement, as it's so darn nice you're going to want to drive it a ton just to show it off. With that being said, it's not so over-restored that you'll be dodging birds and rain puddles every time you take it out, although any imperfections that can be found upon closer examination are very minor. The deep, red paint carries a great shine and provides just the right bold, aggressive look for this classic, and the magnetic color serves as a very effective backdrop for the array of exterior fittings it carries. Polished chrome bumpers both fore and aft are perfect endcaps, tight body lines throughout the exterior add to its vital, road-ready appearance, and the wheel well and rocker panel trim accentuates the raked, lowered stance of this prowling muscle car. The iconic SS grille up front, the trademark Chevy flag badges on the front fenders, the jet-black taillight panel with its clean SS396 emblem and the Super Sport badges on the rear fenders provide fitting callouts to this Chevy's Super Sport inspiration.

Inside, the black vinyl interior has a largely factory configuration that's accented with just a couple minor aftermarket touches, and it all works great together to help provide a perfect environment in which to put this Chevy through its paces. Everything looks clean inside and the black vinyl front buckets and matching rear bench seat loom over black carpeting lining the floor that's ornamented in front with a pair of matching vinyl floormats. Running between those floormats is a factory center console that puts the automatic shifter within easy reach and features a stylish analog clock just ahead. A sharp 3-spoke SS-badged steering wheel sits atop a factory steering column ahead of the driver, while the dash ahead features stock-style gauges along with chrome accents found throughout. Options include a stock-style Delco AM radio that remarkably still works, a set of seatbelts up front, and aftermarket R134a air conditioning that's in top form and cools the cabin as needed. In back, the super-clean trunk area is spacious and a lay in plaid mat tidies it up a bit.

A powerful, rebuilt 396 cubic inch V8 sits in the engine compartment decked out with a pair of black Chevrolet valve covers and matching air cleaner (complete with factory-style decals) that blend well with the newer alternator, power brake and power steering system, and upgraded air conditioning compressor. A polished Edelbrock intake manifold crowned by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor help extract the most from the engine's substantial displacement, an updated HEI ignition system and wiring provide optimum spark, and a big aluminum radiator with an electric fan up front keeps operating temperatures in check. The Chevy Orange powerplant runs strong and sounds great through its set of long-tube headers, and with a rebuilt 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission sitting just behind it, plus a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end in back, this Chevelle is well-geared for both serious off the line exploits and long-term cruising as well. Power steering makes for easy navigation, while power brakes that feature discs up front provide low-effort, fade resistant stops. The undercarriage is very solid and clean, with upgrades found throughout, while the Flowmaster dual exhaust system sounds wonderfully throaty and deep - the perfect soundtrack for a Chevrolet big block. 17" US Mag alloy wheels wrapped with 225/45/17 front and 285/45/18 rear performance radials complete the look of this sharp Chevy.

Combining vintage appeal and big block power, this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Tribute is one fine ride. Call today!
