1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Additional Info:

When a car is right, ou can tell just by looking at it. Given the predatory stance on this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396, here's no question the guys who built it did their homework. It is a potent big block car, acking a thundering 396 cubic inch V8 and a flashy restoration with a few upgrades that make this one stand out from the pack. It's not the original color (that would be code 57, athom Green), ut this Chevelle now sports a coat of basic black that emphasizes the gentle arc of the Chevelle sheetmetal, ot to mention the super-aggressive rake. It's deeper and shiner than any factory finish ever was so it seems a shame even to call it Tuxedo Black, ut whatever its name, t looks fantastic. This Chevelle looks like it's had its skin stretched tight over its chassis, nd the excellent fit of the panels and professional prep give it a high quality appearance that'll show well on Friday nights at your favorite hangout spot. There's a correct blacked-out SS grille up front, roper SS 396 badges on the flanks, nd brilliant chrome bumpers fore and aft. We like that they left off the stripes and the cowl-induction hood, hich helps give it a low-key look that's quite deceptive once you see how well it runs. Overall, he look is extremely impressive.The black bucket seat interior has been restored using new seat covers, resh carpets, ew door panels, nd a replacement headliner, ot to mention all the other small detail pieces that are so tough to track down. A correct SS dash with round gauges strongly suggests that this is a real SS, lthough '69s are notoriously difficult to authenticate. The center console proudly carries a horseshoe shifter for the TH400 3-speed automatic underneath, nd the steering wheel is in good shape. Even the original AM radio is still in the middle of the dash, o you know where this car's priorities lie. There's a reproduction trunk mat in back, nd a glance back there tells you how thorough the paint job was, ecause there's no trace of Fathom Green. Oh, nd there's also a full-sized spare should worse come to worst.Horsepower is delivered from a period-correct 396 inch V8 that has been properly dressed in bright Chevy Orange paint. Situated between the satin black fender wells, t looks fairly stock, lthough a few upgrades including a Holley high-rise intake and 4-barrel carburetor, inned aluminum valve covers, n HEI ignition system, nd long-tube headers that surely add a few extra horsepower. Everything was rebuilt not that long ago and runs great today, ith loads of big block torque available at any speed and in any gear. The TH400 3-speed automatic transmission handles the massive torque and there's a 12-bolt hanging out back. Power disc brakes provide sure, onfident stops, nd the large diameter exhaust system dumps out through Flowmasters and big angled tips out back. The suspension has been tastefully modified using drop spindles and re-arched springs to give it a low, ean look, nd someone definitely did their homework when it came time to stuff the wheel wells, ecause this one wears shiny Torque Thrust wheels and 205/70/15 front and 255/70/15 rear performance radials.Freshly restored and modified just enough to catch your attention, his big block Chevelle puts a unique twist on a timeless classic.
