For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our Houston showroom is this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute. This particular Chevelle started life as a Malibu V8, as indicated by the "36" in the 2nd and 3rd positions in the VIN. The black interior looks well-cared for; showing little signs of its true age. Under the hood you will find a rebuilt 454 CID V8, mated to a rebuilt GM TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. Only a little bit of chrome is needed, as the monster 454 will draw attention all by itself. The 454 has a mild cam, which helps provide some additional grunt without being too difficult to tame for street use; plus it adds a nice lope to the idle. When all 4 venturis on the big Edelbrock 4 barrel carb are mixing air and fuel at full throttle, the sound of the exhaust will bring back memories of the good old days. Hooker competition headers evacuate the spent fossils through a full dual exhaust system that will wake the neighbors if you want to. The GM 10-bolt rear houses a 3.08:1 ring and pinion gear set; so the car has been kept highway friendly - this Chevelle will cruise around town and down the highways with ease. Inside, the interior has been kept simple and clean with only the addition of 3 gauges and a small tach. The bucket seats, center console with "His 'n Hers" shifter, and rear bench are intact. Depending on which direction you are looking to take, whether you're looking for a driver to hit the local cruises with, or just go for some weekend drives in a classic, then this Chevelle is an excellent choice. Recent enhancements to this Chevelle include new Moog 454 springs, new KYB Gas Shocks, and a new alternator. Options on this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute include digital retro-style AM/FM radio with Aux capability, vinyl interior, seat belts, Power steering, Power Brakes, Factory Rally Wheels with chrome beauty rings, and BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires.
