Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
Flash AND substance... that's what this 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 427 tribute truly delivers. With slick paint, a sharp-looking interior, an upgraded suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes, it has all the right features you want in an impressive hardtop. And the monster 468ci big block has a show-worthy shine and the power to let this upgraded classic rule the streets.
The slick silver is a modern application that went on with a professional hand. The clearcoat luster has an instant look of quality that comes from a large investment. It really radiates as the sunlight shows off the iconic body lines. Before the first drop of the paint went down, it's evident they took extra time on the body to give it a smooth look with excellent panel fit, which allows for the doors to shut with confidence. And the only thing to shine brighter than the silver is the chrome of the bumpers and trim. And while the overall execution is award-worthy, you're also going to love it for its full aggression. It has SS details like blackout grille, power dome cowl hood, and Super Sport scripts on the rear fender. Plus, for added aggression and shine, there are the alloy wheels done with an 18/20-inch front/rear stance. Because this one is so powerful, and those ultra-wide Mickey Thompson rear tires provide so much grip, you also have a wheelie bar in the back when it's time to be a quarter-mile king.
When you open the door, you're greeted with a custom red interior. There's a premium feel with the well-bolstered TMI bucket seats finished in leather. And the carpeting, door panels, headliner, and dash all have the look of quality, too. There are even upgraded comfort features including a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, a cup holders center console, and provisions for air conditioning (it will require hookup to function.) But as comfortable as this is, you also know it's no out to coddle. It's a performance build. The rear seat was eliminated to make room for the reinforced rear subframe. There's a Billet steering wheel, a tilt column, B&M floor shifter, fire extinguisher, and AutoMeter Pro-Comp gauges mounted under the dash.
The engine bay continues the award-worthy style. You have smooth and clean color-matched inner walls that funnel your attention to all the polished components on this V8. While you'll be in awe of the style, there's substance behind it, too. The 454 motor was bored .060 over for a total of 468 cubic inches. And the power upgrade doesn't end there. This V8 has been enhanced with Comp Cams "Thumpr" camshaft, gear-driven timing gears, fabricated aluminum valve covers, an Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum intake, and topped with a ProForm four-barrel carburetor. The long tube headers add power to the power while feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. Plus, if you really want a thunder from this motor upgrade, just open up the electric cutouts. The full package is supported by the right accessories, like HEI ignition, a billet belt drive setup, a BeCool aluminum radiator, and dual Optima red top batteries placed in the trunk for better weight distribution. The motor is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission that feeds a stout narrowed Ford 9-inch rear. The reinforced rear end includes a ladder bar suspension with adjustable coilovers. And you also have power steering, Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes, and modern sports tires. It makes for a seriously solid performance driver.
This is an all-around awesome build for those who have always wanted an iconic hardtop and a big power package all in one. So don't let something so complete slip away. Call today!!!
