For Sale: 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

With its rugged, squared-off shape and a monster 489 V8 big block sitting under the hood, and a quick-shifting Tremec 5-speed gearbox managing the gears, this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 is an absolute stunner. After just a quick look at that brilliant red paint job and sporty bucket seat interior, the choice upgrades throughout this build really put it over the top.

It can be argued that the 1967 Chevelle SS396 represented GM's first (and best) effort to land a winning contender in the muscle car wars of the 1960s. The model went through a fairly thorough updating just a year prior to this '67's debut, receiving a brawnier look, a broad track and robust front end, along with the distinctive flying buttress rear roofline that made these cars so iconic. This bright red example is a top driver-quality muscle car, and we mean that as a high complement, as you're going to want to drive it a ton just to brag. The deep, lustrous paint is fresh and carries a great shine, providing just the right bold and aggressive look for this classic, and the magnetic color serves as a very effective backdrop for the array of exterior fittings it carries. Slick black stripes were painted on the sides of the cowl hood, giving this A-body a slightly custom look, and they match the blacked-out, SS-spec tail panel. Polished chrome bumpers both fore and aft act as perfect endcaps and the rocker panel trim accentuates the killer raked stance of this prowling muscle car. Finishing off the exterior, the iconic SS grille up front, the trademark Chevy flag badges on the front fenders, and the Super Sport badges on the rear fenders all 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. Matching red paint on the dash, center console, door outlines, and the backs of the bucket seats add a little spice inside, breaking up the usual monotony you find inside a Chevelle from this era. Everything looks clean inside and the black vinyl front buckets and matching rear bench seat loom over plush black carpeting lining the floors, the black door panel inserts look practically new, and the taut headliner above proves that nothing was overlooked inside. Running between the seats is a factory center console that houses an 8-ball topped Hurst chrome shifter that's within easy reach of the driver, and the stylish analog clock just ahead is a Chevelle SS staple. A sharp 3-spoke steering wheel is joined on the column by a big SunPro tachometer, while the dash ahead features stock-style gauges augmented with a trio of auxiliary units underneath, and there are brightly polished chrome accents throughout that really make the command center pop. Options include a retro-style AM/FM/AUX radio in the center of the dash, a set of seatbelts up fore and aft, and a full Vintage Air R134a air conditioning kit that's in top form and cools the cabin as needed. Out back, the trunk was neatly finished with black spatter-paint and shows off this Chevelle's incredibly solid bones.

A powerful, professionally built 454 big block sits in the engine compartment, punched out to 489 cubes and featuring performance internals like a Comp Cams camshaft, valve springs, and hydraulic lifters, an Eagle crank and connecting rods, and ProComp heads. A billet front-runner kit drives all the accessories, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor feeds the beast atop an aluminum air-gap intake, and Hedman headers at the flanks connect to a throaty H-pipe dual exhaust system with barking Flowmaster mufflers. The engine comes decked out with a pair of black Chevrolet valve covers and matching air cleaner that blend well with the newer alternator, power brake and power steering systems, and upgraded air conditioning compressor. An updated HEI ignition system, Optima battery, and new wiring provide optimum spark, and a big aluminum radiator with a dual electric fans 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 Tremec TKO 5-speed manual transmission sitting just behind it, plus a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end filled with 3.73 POSI gears 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. 15-inch Cragar S/S wheels wrapped with BFGoodrich T/A white-letter radials complete the look of this sharp Chevy.

Combining vintage appeal and big block power, this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is one very fine ride. Call today!
