1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396

This is a true attention-getter. After all, if the bright paint doesn't get all the eyes on you, the growl of the big block will. And because it's all wrapped around the iconic body of a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 with all the best features you start to realize your dream muscle machine is ready right now.
This car is quite striking from its first impression as it mixes speed with sophistication. It's in the way the '66 cars blend artful touches (like the flying buttress C-pillars) with subtle aggression (like the intimidating overhang on the hood.) And this one really does it right. The Marina Blue has a brighter shine that tells you there was an investment in refreshing the factory-correct color later in life. Plus, you can tell special attention was paid to the brightwork to make sure everything from the window trim to the chrome king bumpers have extra brilliance. This was the first year for the SS396 as its own separate model, and this coupe wears its unique pieces with pride, including the blacked-out grille, louvered hood, ribbed lower trim panels, and all the correct badging right down to the Super Sport fender scripts. And of course, no sporty Chevy would be complete without iconic Rally wheels.
This handsome bucket seat interior perfectly captures this Chevelle's comfortable and performance dual-purpose nature. The seats, door panels, dash, headliner, and center console have that kind of fresh black appearance that makes us believe there was quite a nice investment in the interior recently. But this is far from a sea of darkness. There's plenty of shiny trim on the Chevrolet sports steering wheel, long dash with long horizontal speedometer, and upgraded knob-style AM/FM/cassette stereo w/aux input. Plus, you can't miss spotting the performance features like the upgraded Hurst T-handle shifter, and the very handy column-mounted tach.
The engine bay was built for both show and go. The bold block paint, ribbed air topper, and bright valve covers with Chevy's famous heartbeat motto etched in it set off a fantastic presentation of the big block power. So while this looks highly upgraded, you'll love being able to tell people that this is a 1966-correct 396 cubic-inch block. And the tidy and fresh presentation means people can instantly spot upgrades like the Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, Mallory distributor, and aluminum radiator. This V8 fires up easily and makes a terrific growl as the long tube headers feed the dual exhaust. You're in complete control of this monster motor and its muscle car symphony thanks to the desirable four-speed manual transmission. Plus, the power steering and sway bars front & rear make taming this beast easy.
Big power and a big presence make this real-deal SS396 a true standout. So if you love driving an icon, and you love attention, hurry up and grab this turn-key Chevelle. Call today!!!
