Chevelle 1966

Title Status --
Exterior Color Silver
Interior Color White


This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute Convertible has exactly what you want. You have upgraded big block power, a bright/inviting interior with an awesome sound system, and an upgraded driving experience featuring a five-speed and four-wheel disc brakes. It makes for the kind of classic that you just know is perfect for you to get up early for cars & coffee and then just spend the rest of the day cruising.

This car was given a frame-off restoration only about ten years ago, and it may have gone as few as 5k miles since then. This mix of modern investment and good care is instantly noticeable. For example, silver may be a timelessly attractive color, but this application has a deep gloss and smooth feel that is unmistakably a modern high-quality application. There was the right attention paid to this one where not only the chrome bumpers were made to shine brightly but also the little details, like the vent windows look terrific, too. And the white top is an inspired choice to give a premium appearance. It's upgraded with the right Super Sport pieces, like the full badging, backout grille, blackout rear panel, ribbed rockers, and the vent trim hood. This car is a looker, but it also makes sure you know it's a driver. The upgrade to Coys wheels is a great example. They have an awesome shine and an intimidating stance with the 18/20-inch front/rear stagger. And these also allow you to fit better brakes and tires for real use out on the streets.

With the flip of a switch, the crisp white roof powers down to reveal a nice white interior. So you get a striking contrast against the bright silver with the top up or down. This upgrade was also mindful, and so high traffic areas like the carpet and door tops were done in black (another reminder that this is thoughtfully done to be a car that wants to be enjoyed.) There are plenty of vintage details, like the bright trim in the seatbacks, sporty wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a clock in the center console. But as a true driver, there are also the right upgrades to let you enjoy this to the fullest. The vintage radio is on display, but neatly installed below it is a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. It's your gateway to a fully upgraded speaker system, including the subwoofer in the trunk. And when you see the column-mounted tach and extra great on the Hurst shifter, it gets you ready for something special under the hood.

Under the hood is a very clean and mean powerhouse. The badging might say 396, but this is actually a larger 454 cubic-inch big block V8. And this one proudly displays its extra power and plenty of upgrades. This includes Edelbrock aluminum heads, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, cast Chevrolet valve covers, and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. You'll even spot good supporting components, like the MSD coil and an aluminum radiator. And the headers add even more power as they let this freely exhale into the dual exhaust and Dynomax mufflers. Best of all, you are in firm control of the power and soundtrack thanks to the upgraded five-speed manual transmission. Plus, there's power steering, a rear sway bar, the grip of modern sport tires, and a four-wheel power disc brakes package with drilled & slotted rotors.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, build receipts, and restoration photos. This is a beautifully restored Chevelle convertible that has the power and poise to make you love the drive. This is a total package drop-top classic that you don't want to let slip away. Call now!
