Thanks to its it's long smooth lines and faint coke-body shape the 1966 Chevelle remains arguably one of Chevy's most beautiful muscle cars. Stepping out of the shadow of its more boxy 64 and 65 siblings, the 66 offers a more elegant look while maintaining the iconic stance we've come to love about the Chevelle.
Travel to any car show across American and the first thing that demands your attention is an automobile's color presentation. During this frame off restoration the 1966 SS Chevelle was treated to a gorgeous, meticulously applied, glass smooth red paint job. Combine that with flawless body gaps and perfectly straight body lines capped off with brand new chrome badges and this rare convertible is worthy of turning heads and bringing home trophies without even firing it up. And before you ask, yes it is a real 138 VIN 1966 Chevelle SS 396 convertible
Should you decide to turn the key, roaring to life is a period correct, 396 big block Chevy engine, distinguished with an bright Chevy orange paint job and accented with stunning chrome valve covers and a matching air cleaner. Being offered for the first time in mid 1965, the big block 396 became the standard power plant of the Chevelle for the next 2 years only, this helped to cement the SS396 as an instant and highly sought after classic!
This particular 396 boasts a Mallory ignition distributor, 8mm Accel Ferro-Spiral Core spark plug wires, duel radiator mounted Spal electric cooling fans, hooker headers and a fully welded Pypes Performance exhaust system. Gone is the cam driven mechanical fuel pump, in favor of a more efficient flowing electric delivery system feeding a 4 barrel Holly carburetor.
Bolted to the back of this monster big block is another period correct, aluminum bodied, Muncie 4-speed manual transmission offering smooth transition between its gears while transferring power to a time tested and near bullet proof, GM 12 bolt rear end.
Open the door and climb into this convertible and you'll find beautifully upholstered front bucket seats and an equally stunning and comfortable rear bench seat. These are complemented nicely by new matching door panels, new carpet, chrome door handles, window cranks, air blower bezels, and shifter handle that all stand out brightly against the nicely accompanied tan upholstery. You have options when it comes to cooling yourself on a hot summer day, simply drop the top and let the wind do its work or let this car's cool A/C handle the climate control.
Power brakes and steering help the performance around town or down a busy highway. Adding to the smooth handling and clean look are four brand new Nitto Extreme Performance directional tires which wrap polished five spoke aluminum American Racing Wheels.
