$44,800

Harry's Thoughts

This is a particularly well done Chevelle. Full body-off restoration and with all the right options.

THE ESSENTIALS

This Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 is fabulous to drive. This is a full rotisserie restoration of a rust free California car. This is a muscle car that would perform as well on the show field as it would in a fun street race (just kidding, no one would race this?)

Painted in the fabulous colors of silver with the SS black striping, this is the quintessential muscle car. This has the proper 396 CID V-8 and has benefited from various performance enhancements, including a complete MSD ignition system, Edelbrock intake manifold, Holly carb, Hooker headers and much more.

The 396-cubic-inch (6.5 L) V8 was introduced in the 1965 Corvette as the L78 option and in the Z16 Chevelle. It had a bore of 4.094 in (104.0 mm) and a stroke of 3.76 in (96 mm), and produced 375 hp (280 kW) and 415 lb·ft (563 N·m). This version of the 396 was equipped with four bolt main bearing caps and was very comfortable with being operated in the upper 6000 rpm range.

Introduced in 1970, the 402-cubic-inch (6.6 L) was a 396-cubic-inch bored out by 0.030 in (0.76 mm). Despite the fact that it was 6 cubic inches (98 cc) larger, Chevy continued marketing it under the popular “396” label in the smaller cars while at the same time labeling it “Turbo-Jet 400” in the full-size cars.

Details will be forthcoming as we continue to research the cars history and improvements.

This is a fabulous opportunity to own a fully restored and sorted Chevelle for a fraction of what the costs are to restore one to this level, let alone the clean California car you’d need to buy in the first place! Whether you are wanting a car to show or for weekend touring, this is a great investment value. Please review the value guide as follows: NADA Guide

Interesting Fact: The Chevy Chevelle was in production from 1963 to 1977. This mid-sized car had three generations over those 14 years, before finally being succeeded by the Chevy Malibu; a car that is still around today.   The first generation of the Chevelle lasted until 1967 and came in virtually every model one could imagine. One of the most powerful engines that is in some Chevelle’s is a 6.5-liter Big-Block V8 engine. However, this wasn’t good enough for Chevy, so they released a Chevelle SS to get their foot in the door of muscle cars.   As the second generation emerged, the Chevelle design seemed to take more after the SS variant rather than the base. Aerodynamic builds and a low-profile design helped buyers to know what they were considering purchasing. One unique feature of the Chevelle is that it was advertised as America’s most popular mid-size car. Even though the Chevelle was replaced by the downsized Malibu, this model paved the way for Chevy race cars and future sport models. Due to this, many seek out the Chevelle in an attempt to purchase one and add it to their garage!
