1966 was the year of the first major Chevelle restyle. If you look at the timeline of the Chevelle's brief but popular run, you can easily see when redesigns like this occurred! Because of the drastic differences in each generation (and even between each year!) Chevelle enthusiasts are often looking for a very specific car.
This 1966 is of one of the most iconic generations of Chevelle and is packing lots of goodies that would make it a fine vehicle for any enthusiast looking for a REAL SS396 1966 Chevelle. That's right, this is a true 138 VIN car. For those unfamiliar, the 138 VIN indicates that this was built as a real Super Sport Chevelle and is not a clone. But wait, there's more! Under the hood sits the real, original, numbers-matching 396 big-block V8. The engine bay looks clean and correct although tasteful upgrades have been performed here and there to improve on the drivability and reliability of the car. For instance, A Mallory distributor has been equipped for a much more reliable spark to the huge engine. Also, Originally leaving the factory with a 2-speed Powerglide, This puppy puts the power to the ground by way of a 3-speed TH350 transmission and a GM 12-bolt posi rear axle will light the rear tires up for those with a heavy right foot.
The exterior is very clean and is missing nothing. The red paint is not the original color, but is very flattering on this car! This is a very presentable car that would be an excellent candidate for someone looking to own a real-deal SS Chevelle! The original floor pans are in place and in excellent condition. It has had new exhaust including mufflers installed as well as new front power disc brakes to replace the original drums.
The interior is black with buckets; the perfect match to a red exterior! Both the carpet and headliner have been replaced recently. The radio and heat work as they should and it even has the correct “Knee Knocker” tachometer! Overall, this Chevelle is in excellent condition and has all of the positive attributes any discerning buyer would want in a 138 Chevelle SS.
