We know the slick black presentation of this restored 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS instantly caught your eye (and it does exactly that for others, too.) But as you dig into the details and discover the all the new components – from the four-speed stick to the monster 500hp big block – you'll soon realize that the new midnight hero is up for grabs.
If you don't like attention, then don't buy this car. That's because most of us can't resist a shiny black Chevelle – especially with chrome in all the right places like the vented hood, extra wide bumpers, and the trim that outlines every inch of glass. Everything else is covered in an intimidating darkness that highlights the super straight body. This is a real-deal code-38 SS396 coupe, and so there has been a serious restoration investment in everything that you see to make sure this is pure intimidation on wheels. But just in case some people were not taking notice to the midnight hero attitude, there are hints on every side of the car with special SS 396 badging on the chrome grille and dark rear panel, as well as the bold “Super Sport” script on each rear fender. And of course, no aggressive Chevy is complete without the cool Rally wheel package.
The interior is just as imposing as the exterior. The deep black on the seats, doors, headliner, and dash are all products of a good restoration. And at this level of investment, we all love the feel of the factory pattern and bright accents. The view from the driver's seat is amazing. You get a three-spoke SS sports steering wheel for the power steering. Its bright presentation continues on the factory dash that includes 60s-cool items like the extra wide speedometer and heat/defrost controls. You can tell no expense was spared in here because pretty much no detail was missed. But more than just look great, we know you're going to love grabbing onto the cue ball shifter and watching the upgraded tach dance as you drop that accelerator pedal.
Lift the hood and see the best upgrade of them all. The tidy presentation and bright valve covers will certainly attract a crowd. But while the badges say this is a 396, that's a bit of a fib... because this one has a massive 496 big block stroker motor under the hood. This huge displacement V8 includes all the best upgrades for speed and fortification, including Icon forged aluminum pistons, Eagle forged steel H-beam rods, ARP bolts, Clevite bearings, aluminum Pro-Comp heads, Ferrea valvetrain internals, Chevy Performance long slot rocker arms (1.7 ratio), and a Comp-Cams hydraulic roller camshaft. This custom V8 inhales deeply with a Holley 770 Street Dominator four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority out of Hedman long tube headers that feed the thundering dual exhaust. The total package is rated around 500 horsepower. And if you're going to build something as wicked as this, you need the full control that comes from the new Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. Making sure all this power gets to the ground is a 12-bolt rear end that has a 3.08 ratio and Positraction.
We didn't even have enough room to go through all the new components. But give us a call, and we'll go over all the details and receipts on the wickedest Chevelle around. Then again, with so much appeal to a turn-key mean muscle machine, you might want to also call to make sure it's still here. Call now!
