1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Additional Info:

This is a real-deal 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 with big block power, hardtop appeal, and a terrific color combo. So you can dig into the details, but you already know this is the muscle car icon you're going to love.

Butternut Yellow is one of those defining colors for the Super Sport Chevys. Vivid yet innocent, it made these high horsepower cars feel unassuming - but they left an impression as they showed everyone their taillights. This one is particularly striking because it was given a modern clearcoat respray. It looks fantastic under our showroom lights and even better gleaming in the sunlight. And not only do you get the quality look of a proper investment, but also it makes for a great contrast to the darker features like the SS grille, blacked-out rear panel, black lower rockers, and premium vinyl top. Plus, as a true classic American, you get brightwork that's in all the right places like the extra wide bumpers and the trim that outlines every inch of glass. While this has the look of an iconic SS hardtop, right down to the dual power bulges in the hood, there was also room for well-done custom features. The SS badges in the front and rear are finished in red for added aggression. And a set of larger 17-inch torque thrust style alloys were added, but they look almost like Chevy made them thanks to the SS center caps.

We love it when all the black exterior accents are a preview of an all back interior, but as you look closer, there's even more appeal here. The upholstery looks fresh from a big investment. So while the interior follows a stock style, those button-top bucket seats never had that much bolstering or looked that supple from the factory. New door panels and plush carpeting complete a package that feels terrifically fresh. The Chevelle might have been Chevy's intermediate size coupe in the '60s, but today that means plenty of room in the back to comfortably carry family and friends. And everyone stays entertained with the upgraded AM/FM/cassette radio. But while all of this seems like the perfect coupe to share, the Chevelle saves its best treats for the driver. The classic wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel feels great in your left hand, and your right one will love resting on the horseshoe shifter. Plus, you have a commanding view of the gauge package and the auxiliary readouts under the dash.

This true SS has proper 396 cubic-inch big block power. Not only does it look great filling the engine bay, but also it has the right upgrades, like the Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, MSD ignition. It fires up nicely and makes a sweet rumble out of the dual exhaust. Chevy's TH400 three-speed automatic transmission can handle this big power as it feeds the stout 12-bolt rear end. Plus, you have great anytime driving features such as power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and modern performance tires afforded by the modern wheels.

This coupe has been given all the right investments to be a head-turner. So if you love big power and plenty of poise, call today!
