This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS tribute is sure to hit all the
right high notes with Chevy fans: Big block engine.
Four-on-the-floor. Red paint. And 100% ready to rumble.
Classic Matador Red sure looks good on the Chevelle, doesn't it? It's all about investing in a modern respray of a classic Chevy color. Bodywork is excellent throughout, with great gaps and a smooth finish thanks to even more investments into getting this coupe to look just right. Look how nicely those quarters fit, the smooth, unbroken line that runs from nose to tail, and the gaps on the doors - this car was put together very carefully. Four headlights up front frame a shiny grille with SS badging, while out back, the red SS tail panel fits in with the taillights and highlights the curve of the chrome bumper. It's one aggressive and shiny package that comes together perfectly on the 15-inch alloy wheels that have a staggered tires size for an intimidating stance.
The appeal of the interior is as clear as black and white...literally. The seats and side panels have the kind of glowing white vinyl that instantly has the look of premium. But you don't have to worry as much if your shoes are dusty before stepping in because the fresh carpeting is a dirt-hiding dark black. An intermediate size back in the 60s means today that there is plenty of room to carry family and friends in comfort. But really, this coupe is all about the driver. You slip into the bucket seat, grab the Chevy three-spoke sports steering wheel with your left hand, and your right one never wants to leave the Hurst shifter. You've got all the factory gauges and auxiliary readouts available to tell you what's going on in the engine bay, but you know that having the large AutoMeter tach prominently sitting on the steering column means there's something serious under the hood.
The callouts on the side 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, matching valve covers, and a bright air grabber. But beneath the style is the substance of an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum radiator, and Edelbrock intake manifold. This total package exhales with authority out of long tube headers that feed a Flowmaster dual exhaust with cutouts for an even fiercer growl. 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. Beyond just a dominating total drivetrain package, this Chevelle offers good control. Features like power steering and front disc brakes, give it a commanding feeling on the streets.
Clean, fast, and virtually bulletproof, this is the kind of Chevelle you've always wanted. Go ahead, indulge yourself and give us a call today!
