1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 for sale
This car was sold new by Don Steves Chevrolet dealership in La Habra southern California on 08-05-1968.Always has been a california car. I bought it a few years ago from the original owner.Only 96K miles on the working odometer.
It's a real SS 396 with the original motor. The car was originally a 4 speed manual, but the previous owner changed it to a TH400 3 speed automatic sometimes in the 80's. The car still has the clutch pedal, its pulled up against the fire wall.
This Chevelle is a proper muscle car with well thought out and executed period correct modifications from the era.

The body:Rust free, accident free. The color is dark gray metallic. It shines nice and looks great. There are some minor imperfections and small scratches.The floor are original and rust free, solid frame and clean trunk area. The car has always been garaged and rarely driven.All the trim and chrome is in nice condition with the right amount of patina.The Landau top is in perfect condition and it looks great.The rally wheels were color matched to the car and its from a Corvette, they're wider therefor fits wider tires and it just make it look so much better in my opinion.
