"Survivor" is not a term we take lightly at Streetside. So when we tell you that this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 is a real-deal 138 car that appears to have its original paint and interior, and has the numbers-matching big block under the hood...well then, you should get as excited about this true original survivor as we are.
You see how great this coupe's code-A Bolero Red looks in the pictures, and so you can imagine just how amazing it is to have it looking like this nearly a half-century since leaving the Kansas City factory. There are the usually touchups and blemishes of a lifetime of being enjoyed, but for paintwork that is believed to be original from Chevy, it is probably the best looking survivor you will ever take out into the sunshine. Being around to see eight U.S. presidents take office, and look this good, takes a meticulous level of care. So when you see a Super Sport with super straight panels like these, you tend to believe that the low 70,179 miles on the odometer is accurate. But beyond just a terrific surviving example, it's the kind of muscle car the draws attention and makes others jealous. Against the deep red is brightwork in all the right places like extra wide bumpers, inside the dual power bulges of the SS hood, rocker panels, and the trim that outlines every inch of glass. The shine on this one looks quite bright right down to the iconic 15-inch rally wheels.
The interior is just as striking as the exterior, which is amazing considering we believe it's original inside, too. The deep black on the seats, doors panels, carpets, and dash are all looking fanatic on this survivor. You hop in and slip behind a three-spoke SS sports steering wheel. Its black and chrome brightness perfectly matches the factory dash that houses items like the AM radio and provisions for factory air conditioning. You get an extra-wide speedometer that's flanked by a fuel gauge and a factory clock that's still ticking away!
Beyond just being a survivor, this car is a true 138-code SS396. So when you open the engine bay, this Chevelle is filled with big block power. The original numbers-matching 396 cubic-inch V8 looks amazing, complete, and honest. So while you might expect people to marvel at the surviving paintwork, we bet you'll be surprised at how many enthusiasts check out the V8 first. Because this survivor has also been enjoyed on the road over its lifetime, you'll be happy to see all of the right maintenance. This ranges from little details like belts and hoses, to bigger picture items that cannot survive a half-century and have been replaced, like the new KYB shocks and the dual exhaust. That's why this Chevelle still fires up nicely and makes a terrific big block rumble. It feels great on the road, and with features like power steering, Powerglide automatic transmission, and front disc brakes, we know you won't be able to resist driving around town showing off this ultra rare gem.
A rare surviving example of an ultra-desirable SS396, this coupe truly offers everything you could want (there is even a redline tire and factory hubcap package that come with the sale, too!) You know how special this Chevelle is, and you also know you may never find one this exceptionally original again. You know what they say...they're only original once. So hurry and call today before it's gone!
