Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is a sleek blue hardtop with its numbers-matching big block V8 under the hood. Best of all, you get to enjoy this full muscle car package from the comfort of a well-presented A/C interior.
This was born a Marina Blue sports coupe, which is a color with an instant appeal. A good investment in professional respray later in life means this retains a very sleek look in the sunshine. And that's exactly what this special car deserves. The straightness of the sheet metal lets you see the Chevelle's muscular lines, and it also highlights the respect this car has commanded over the decades. The VIN code-138 reminds us this is a real-deal Super Sport. So it earns aggressive features like blackout SS grille, matching rear panel, ribbed rockers, and vent-style hood trim. Speaking of trim, a true American classic has brightwork that's in all the right places like wide chrome bumpers and the clean edges outlying every inch of glass. The finishing touch to this vintage yet aggressive SS396 is the retro wheel covers that show off redline tires.
The black interior goes well against the blue exterior, and the trim tag says this was born with this attractive combo. The panels, carpeting, SS floor mats, dash, and all the other fundamentals show the right mix of care and investment you really want in a car that you'll share with family and friends. After all, the classic bench seats with premium Malibu trim are the ideal way to have a car for everyone. You can even keep them all cool with cold-blowing factory air conditioning. There are more great factory details, like the Delco radio and working dome light. This is even a great authentic sports coupe with the thin/grippy dual-spoke steering wheel, floor shifter, and correct column-mounted horizon tach.
This is a real-deal SS396, so you want the engine bay filled with a big block power. This is a numbers-matching 396 cubic inch V8 motor that has nice details we love seeing, such as bright orange block, shining valve covers, and air topper with callouts. It has been treated with care so that it fires up eagerly, idles smoothly, and runs great. It makes plenty of throaty sounds out of the dual exhaust. The classic three-speed manual transmission puts you in control of it all, and that feeds a stout 12-bolt rear end. This also gives you good driving features like power steering, a rear sway bar, and a modern tread behind the classic redline tire style.
This one really loves to be a sharp-looking true classic. That's why it also comes with good paperwork like the dealer invoice, original bill of sale, original warranty card, owner's manual, and title documentation. It's a special SS396, so don't let this sleek hardtop slip away. Call now!
