For Sale: 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

A mean blackout style, four-on-the-floor, an upgraded suspension, and a well-built big block are the kind of recipe for muscle car success. But this 1966 Chevrolet Malibu Chevelle also seems to appreciate its classic side, especially inside. The result is a proper power car that doesn't lose the vintage atmosphere.

The black paint has a glossy finish that gets noticed. It's a mean attitude furthered by a cowl hood, dual exhaust tips, and aggressive sport tires on the upgraded Ridler 17-inch alloys. But the piano-like black also adds sophistication. The clean-looking sides, flying buttress rear pillars, and upgraded black vinyl top all extra emphasis to this classy impression. But what we like most of all is how nothing Is overdone. There are plenty of improvements and upgrades, but it's all done tastefully so this proudly remains a Chevelle with a tidy black and chrome style. So this is an iconic year for the Chevelle, and this hardtop respects that level of style.

The interior furthers the idea of good upgrades while keeping a vintage feeling. After all, the bench seat style always feels like classic American cruising. But the full red package is an upgrade late in life. So it has a nice updated feel that also looks terrific against the exterior black. Everything from the look carpet to the dual-spoke steering wheel has the ideal 1960s feel. Even the Delco AM radio is still there as a display. And the bright floor shifter is there to remind you that the appeal of this is more than just its time capsule style.

The dark inner walls of the engine bay really make the bright orange block pop with power, and it also adds emphasis to some nice polish on components like the air topper and valve covers. So it's easy to show off this big block with pride. This is an era-correct 396 cubic-inch V8, and they even gave it the right upgrades. This includes inhaling deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, better cooling with a large aluminum radiator, and headers that add power and dignified rumble to the X-pipe dual exhaust and Pypes mufflers. It's a powerful package that loves to run, and you get to fully harness it with the Muncie four-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath, you see the clean look of a proper restoration investment. You'll also spot plenty of suspension upgrades like the tubular front A-Arms, tubular rear four-link arms, newer bushings, and thick sway bars front & rear. And the power steering, power brakes with discs up front, and grippy ZR-rated tires are part of a stout performance package.

This Chevelle has the right mix of classic style and upgraded driver's power car appeal. So you know it's the one you're going to love. Call today!!!
