1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Additional Info:

This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is the real-deal Super Sport that has been restored with an accurate eye everywhere you look. So if you not only love a detail-oriented classic, but also serious big block power, then you know you're looking at the right muscle car.
Madeira Maroon is a great factory color to have. You get a similar boldness to red, but there's also a deeper and more sophisticated tone. It seems like the right quality to have, because '66 was one of the few years for the flying buttress on the hardtop that gives this an upper-class look. This whole coupe has a well-done presentation because it was given a frame-off restoration in the early 2000s. And when you pay for quality, it endures. As a real-deal SS396, you also get the right sporty pieces, including the correct hood w/simulated vents, ribbed rockers, and Super Sport badging. So the whole car looks correct, sophisticated, and respected.
The interior continues the restoration's eye for authenticity. You have a factory-correct black bucket seat setup that looks nice, right down to the bright trim on the seatbacks. There are great classic details everywhere from the desirable center console to the AM radio that's still on display. And the driver especially gets a true vintage experience. The dual-spoke Chevy sports steering wheel gives you a clear view to the crisp gauges. This is a correct replacement set, so you have a clean look but all the right pieces, including the desirable oil pressure readout. And the correct knee-knocker tach as well with that bright shifter that's just calling out for your right hand.
Filling the engine bay is big block Chevy power. You'll love how this has a look of correctness with bold block, shining valve covers, and matching air cleaner. This 396 cubic-inch V8 was carefully rebuilt to L35 specs, and there has only been about 1,000 miles on it since. So the fresh look is more than just skin deep. The Holley 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke and HEI ignition means this big block fires up readily and inhales deeply. Plus, the long tube headers add power while making a sweetly subtle tune through the Dynomax dual exhaust. And you have full control over it all with the M20 four-speed manual transmission that was rebuilt at the same time as the motor. This feeds a 12-bolt Positraction rear end with versatile 3.08 gears. The suspension and steering was rebuilt during the restoration for a confident feeling on the road. Plus, there are desirable performance features, like the boxed trailing arms, rear sway bar, and power brakes w/discs up front.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, build receipts, and restoration photos. The original 3.31 rear gear, drive shaft, fuel tank, and other components are also available if desired. This is the SS396 with the right look, features, and investments. So you don't want to let this deal slip away, call today!
