For Sale: 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396

Drag racing seems like it's been with us forever. In truth it's a postwar phenomenon, with roots stretching back to the dry lakebed racing in Southern California in the 1930's. From those humble beginnings to modern times, when a modern Top Fueler can go 0-1000 feet in a tick over 3 seconds at speeds topping 330mph....we've come a long way baby!

For consignment, we have a one of best looking model year Chevelles to ever roll down the Chevrolet assembly lines, now a race car that has been modified to the hilt to go as fast as possible in a straight line. Even from new this car served as a race car. Competing in many less than legal street races throughout the years then tucked away in a garage in 1976 then being rescued by our consignor, the 2nd owner. Read on and get your adrenaline pumping!

Exterior
The Chevrolet Chevelle looks like it's going fast standing still, almost like the designers had racing in mind when this body was penned. Dipped in red with a pastel purple encased side stripe that starts white then fades through the spectrum before matching the rest of the body in red, this steel and fiberglass 1/4 miler means business. The hood and its integrated scoop are fiberglass while pinned in the front, use an unconventional method of retention to the hinges via bolts right through fiberglass. Nicely preserved chrome and trim very shiny and mirror-like is noted on the bumpers and all trim and molding pieces that are still on the car. On the rear of this car are corner wrap-around taillights that have a lettered black panel in between them which floats above the bumper. A large hood scoop sits atop the center rear of the hood and a body side matching stripe starts atop this scoop and runs rearward over the roof and down the trunk of this racer. This scoop is also ready to suck in all the air the engine needs along with any errant birds or small children who get too close. Weld Draglite wheels round out the package on all 4 corners. Keeping with traditional drag racing form, the skinnies are in the front and monster fatties are in the rear. We note the rear quarter panels have been radiused to accept the huge rear meats and the side to side stance is canted to the passenger's side in the front.

Interior
With a swing of the doors you are met with door panels in black vinyl which have horizontal stitched tucked roll panels, some chrome trimmings and are in very good condition. Inside high black racing buckets with black and red vinyl covers replace the former front bench seat, in the rear the seating is gone and replaced with sheet metal panels to accommodate the large rear tires. A roll cage provides a safety halo should things get topsy turvy and all this floats in beautiful black carpeting. On the center of the hump is a tall T-handle top long armed Hurst shift lever in the perfect position. The dash is all original but has been stripped of the knob for the lights, ignition, and wipers being on the top of the gauge cluster. A right side mounted aftermarket tachometer hangs on the steering column and the driver's wheel is a 3 spoke heavy metallic red plastic unit. A gaggle of switches has been installed in the dash center along with a trio of gauges below. A big howdy to the trunk which has been completely redone with large wheel tubs and now holds the fuel cell and battery box.

Drivetrain
Lifting the lightweight hood and massive hood scoop we are met with the factory engine bay holding within an era correct but not original engine. This consignor stated freshly rebuilt V8 engine weighs in at 396ci V8 now bored to 408ci of big block Chevrolet power. This massive mill is a consignor stated 4-bolt main and has had an L88 solid lifter camshaft installed. Sitting atop this block are a pair of 1969 rectangle port iron cylinder heads and feeding this mighty mill is a single Holley 850cfm 4bbl carburetor. Backing this up is a circa 1966/1967 Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission. The power is put to the ground via a Dana 60 rear axle that is equipped with 4.77 gears and Positraction.

Undercarriage
Upfront an independent coil spring suspension is on and in back ladder bars with coil overs. Drum brakes are seen all around, and we see a Holley blue pump hanging at the rear of the car. Silver snakelike headers rain down from the mighty mill and run back to stainless steel mufflers that end just behind the transmission.

Drive-Ability
We lit this candle up and it was wheels up to the test track. To state the obvious, it takes off like a rocket ship, shifts smoothly, and goes very well in a straight line. It's actually a good driver too for those non competition jaunts, yes folks, its "street legal".

A rare ride to begin with, used as a racer since day one and having only accumulated 12,821 title verified miles. With a freshly rebuilt engine and 1/4 mile looks its now time to get in, strap on the belts, and get ready for a late night of running down the competition.
