For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle convertible will always make a great first impression. After all, the factory drop-tops of this muscle car legend are rare. But what makes it even more attractive is when one has been given investments to be an SS tribute that does it better than the original. So check out the bigger big block, five-speed upgrade, and all the other details that make this a terrific and powerful classic.

Nothing but red and black is exactly how you want a muscle car to look, and so this has been prepared that way. The upgraded fiery paint is part of a later respray, and it has been responsibly enjoyed since. It shows off an attractive clearcoat shine every time you take this convertible out for a sunny day cruise - exactly what you want in a sunshine-friendly drop-top. With the black SS stripes painted on, it makes for a fantastic coordination with the blacked-out grille, blacked-out tail panel, and power convertible top. So this one really does know how to command attention. The form-hugging bumpers have a mirror-like shine, and it matches nicely with the polished Cragar SS wheels. And details like the large dual exhaust tips and twin power dome hood add the perfect upgrade in aggression.

Beneath the snug-fitting black roof is a nice black interior - so this drop-top has a great overall appearance with the roof up or down. Everyone loves to see bucket seats and a center console in a muscle machine. This convertible feels nice inside with the carpets, door panels, upholstery, and dash all retaining their deep, dark appearance. And it wouldn't be a true cruiser without upgraded driving music. So you have a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and a CD changer in the trunk. And this is built to be a true driver's car with a dual-spoke steering wheel on a tilt column, an auxiliary gauge trio under the dash, and a large SunPro tach on top of the steering column. And have you counted the gears on the Hurst shifter yet?

This is the kind of motor that will make you proud to lift the hood at car shows. The 454 cubic-inch big block is a larger motor than what was offered in 1969, and this one is dressed to impress. The clean inner fenders funnel your attention to the bold orange block paint, shining valve covers, cross-flags air grabber, upgraded pulleys, and all the other big polish pieces. If you look closer, you can spot useful upgrades such as the Optima red top battery, dual electric fans, and an aluminum radiator. It's built for plenty of muscle with upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer intake, and Hooker long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust. The Tremec TKO600 five-speed manual transmission is built stout for power and gives you an extra gear than the factory ever did. This feeds into an Eaton HD 3.90 rear end with Positraction to confidently get the power to the pavement. Plus, there's power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and raised letter Cooper Cobra tires at all four corners.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance records. Chevrolet only built 8,950 Chevelle drop-tops in 1969, making them a very rare commodity nearly a half-century later. So to find an SS tribute so nicely presented with a growling V8 under the hood is the kind of treat that doesn't come around very often. Don't miss out, call today!
