For Sale: 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle is the real-deal Super Sport upgraded with shining paint, a beefed-up upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, four-on-the-floor, and larger big block power. It makes for the ideal mix of iconic classic style and road-owning intimidation.

The burnt orange paint is a terrific upgrade for a car like this. It has a bigger big block and a meaner growl so then it should also have a more vibrant paint than stock to really show that it's an all-around bolder machine. The metallic luster grabs your attention, but it's the full package that really impresses. This was thoughtfully done where the blackout SS grille seems to flow directly into the matte black lower section that's separated from the orange by the full-length rocker trim. The blackout rear panel, deeply tinted windows, and a taut vinyl roof are done to match, too. Chrome bumpers, bright bezels, and the full trim package give you plenty of classic American brightwork. And the darkness and shine come together nicely on the Coys alloys done in black chrome wheels.

The full black interior goes with the exterior accents and its style is always inviting in a muscle car. It has a clean and complete look on the fundamentals, including a newer dash pad and a good headliner. There are some features you can add like a modern stereo, and this used to be an A/C car before the components were traded in for added power. In fact, you can feel there is a driver's environment in this coupe. It's a code 183 car, which makes it a real-deal Super Sport. So you have nice SS-style features like front bucket seats and a center console in-between. There's also an upgraded sports steering wheel, power steering, a Hurst shifter, and an under-dash auxiliary readout trio. And the prominent column-mounted AutoMeter Sport-Comp Monster tach really lets you know there's something special under the hood.

The callouts on the badging might say 396, but that's a bit of a lie. This one is packing a much larger 454 cubic-inch big block. The V8 looks great filling the engine bay with its big orange block, bright valve covers with classic Chevrolet script, and an overall tidy style. More than just looking good, this V8 has been upgraded with a Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake, and Hooker long tube headers that feed a rumbling dual exhaust and Flowmasters. You'll also spot good supporting components like a full MSD ignition system, steel braided lines with AN fittings, upgraded hood hinges, and a large aluminum radiator. You have complete control over the sound and the fury of this total power package thanks to the four-speed manual transmission and stout 12-bolt rear end. And as you look at the rear, you'll also spot an upgraded suspension with stronger arms and adjustable coilovers. And there's more upgraded control with a Wilwood four-wheel disc brake setup and grippy ZR-rated sport tires.

Fast, powerful, and absolutely cool, the only question is will you be quick enough to grab this upgraded Super Sport before someone else takes it home? Call now!
