For full-sized summer fun, it's awfully hard to beat this 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle hardtop. With handsome proportions, room for five, and a thumping 427 inch big block under the hood, it is a jack of all trades in the collector car world. If you want speed, this car delivers. The spacious interior is great for road trips. And it really rides nicely. Is it any wonder that they consistently sell for strong prices?
Originally code Y Butternut Yellow, this nicely finished coupe now wears a coat of sizzling code R Bolero Red, which was also correct for Chevelles in 1967. All the body panels fit well and show a clear investment in time and money, and that bright red paint shows them off to great advantage with decent gaps, although driver's door and front fender gap could probably be tweaked a bit. There are some signs of use, which isn't unusual on a car built to run, but it grabs your attention and holds up under scrutiny. And while this Chevelle wasn't born as an SS, it is dressed properly with the right tail panel between the lights, proper Super Sport badges on the quarters, and an SS grille up front. The stock hood remains, including those ultra-cool faux vents which are so much more interesting than the ubiquitous reproduction cowl-induction hoods you so often see on these cars. This car never had a vinyl top so it has a very slick look, and all the trim still looks great and appears to be in original condition.
That tidy black vinyl interior is shockingly nice. The buckets are beautifully upholstered with deluxe seat covers, and there are no splits, rips, or cracking in the vinyl coverings, and even the driver's seat shows minimal use and only light stretching. The door panels are also very good and the dash pad shows no fading or cracking due to long-term sun exposure. New carpets and a fresh headliner round out the list of new gear, and the interior looks extremely authentic. The center console houses that cool factory clock, and aftermarket gauges have been tucked under the dash, along with a big Sunpro tach on the steering column. The original radio is still living in the dash, but it's due for a replacement and a modern entertainment system would make this one heck of a Friday night cruiser. Even better, the trunk offers a new mat and a full-sized Rally wheel and spare tire, plus correct spatter paint for an accurate look.
Power comes from a thundering 427 cubic inch V8 that was rebuilt for performance and dropped between the Chevelle's fenders. Bright Chevy Orange paint always looks great in the engine bays of these cars, and the big block fills it perfectly. Chrome valve covers and a matching air cleaner add just the right amount of brightwork, and with an Edelbrock intake and Holley 4-barrel carb, it's plenty potent. It starts and runs easily, and those long-tube headers and Flowmaster mufflers give it just the right tone of voice. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission delivers lightning-fast shifts while spinning a bulletproof 12-bolt rear end that shows signs of recent work. Cragar mag wheels give it a period-correct attitude, but the staggered 205/70/15 front and 255/60/15 rear performance radials give it a modern ride.
This is a great running Chevelle that you can show and drive anywhere with confidence. Call today!
