A 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle that's a real-deal SS396 and still has its numbers-matching big block V8 under the hood is a wonderful thing. So when it also comes with other desirable features like four-on-the-floor and shining paint, you know this is the complete hardtop with the exactly what you want.
The paperwork file show that this was a local boy. It sold new only about an hour from our showroom, and it's even an actual mileage car! But it's more than just history that has you attracted to this one. When looking for a real-deal SS396, you're probably the kind of person who makes sure the details are right. That's why this one retains the correct grille (with blackouts that wraps around the corners,) dual power bulge hood, SS396 marker lights, and blacked out rear panel. You even have the proper SS striping package for the year. Plus, the paint does a terrific job of letting this coupe really stand out. It's a couple of shades deeper than the factory Grotto Blue, so there's an extra hint of aggression. And the modern clearcoat luster really highlights the crispness of all the body panels.
Inside, these might have been the intermediate-sized car in the '60s, but today that means plenty of room for family and friends to spread across both rows of wide benches. It has a fresh feeling in the carpeting and headliner. But you never lose that vintage attitude, thanks to details, like the button-top pattern on the seats. Of course, this hardtop is great for solo cruising, too. The factory three-spoke steering wheel feels grippy in your hand and has power steering. The added tach on the column goes great with the Hurst shifter. So while this one has a nice upgraded retro-style AM/FM stereo, we really know your favorite soundtrack starts in the engine bay.
This SS396 has its numbers-matching 396 cubic-inch big block V8 still under the hood. We love the way this one looks with its Chevy orange, bright valve covers, and racing flags air topper radiating a powerful message from within the dark engine bay. The V8 inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and that allows the dual exhaust to exhale with a rumbling authority. And you have complete control over the power and its thunderous sound thanks to the Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission.
This comes with all the right paperwork, including the original warranty card, title documentation, reproduction window sticker, owner's manual, service manuals, and maintenance records. So it has the numbers-matching pedigree and plenty of docs to really tell the story. That makes for a true muscle car of distinction. Call now!
