Collectible Motor Car of Atlanta
1750 Enterprise Way, Suite 109
It's no secret that we love Chevelles here at Collectible Motorcar, but sometimes something unusual shows up on our door step that truly blows us away. This pretty 1968 Chevelle is a nicely restored brute-force SS396, which is awesome all by itself, but throw in the unusual color combination and it REALLY stands out. Red is great, but if you really want to make a statement, this is the car you need.
Following a recent restoration, this Butternut Yellow Chevelle started wowing crowds across the south. It's easy to see how that was possible, since it's amazingly straight and brilliantly restored. Forget a color swap to "resale red" or something ridiculous like that; instead, they gave it a glowing coat of correct code Y Butternut Yellow, a glossy two-stage urethane that has a shine for the ages. This color doesn't scream fast, but I assure you that this subtle Chevelle probably humiliated its share of Mustangs, and that color was probably used like bait. Correct black SS stripes were applied around the nose and down along the rockers, and they work well with the SS grille and factory hood. Lots of fresh chrome and polished stainless was part of the restoration, too, so it truly shines in the sun. And the look of a black vinyl top on a light-colored car gives it a lean, elegant look that's a bit part of this car's charm.
The interior was also restored, which includes a black vinyl interior. This was restored with custom bucket seats/console with Chevelle SS correct details throughout the passenger compartment. The upholstery correctly duplicates the factory stuff, and with a thick three spoke steering wheel and that ultra-slick horseshoe shifter, it truly looks like a far more expensive car. Of note, this car carries Vintage A/C that's modern R134a and the original AM radio has been upgraded to a Retro Sound digital AM/FM with AUX cord. Just below is a set of auxiliary gauges for the temp/oil pressure. The factory gauges include a somewhat rare tachometer and yes, that's a tilt steering column, so you really have no excuse not to get in and go. And just to give you an idea of how clean this car is, have a look at that ultra-clean trunk, which includes a reproduction mat.
The real story here, however, is the 454 cubic inch big block under the hood. With around 400 horsepower on tap. Under the hood you get a bad to the bone look that matches the exteriors aggressive look. As you look closer you will notice a few go fast upgrades on this big block, such as a Holley carburetor, Edelbrock intake, long tube headers, and aluminum radiator. The big block is backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and 12-bolt rear end, so the powertrain is virtually indestructible. There's a Flowmaster dual exhaust system for that familiar performance sound that you've admired at cruise nights and while not detailed, the undercarriage doesn't look to have any surprises for its new owner. aggressive 18in black Coye wheels are wrapped in Nitto tires so it handles beautifully and looks awesome.
If you're a fan of the Bad to the bone and unique, then this Chevelle should appeal to you the way it did to us. Sometimes the best way to stand out is to not do what everyone else is doing. Call today!
