This 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 Convertible is an award-winning restoration with under 200 miles on it. The reason it earns plenty of accolades is that it has the right stock features classic features you love - everything from the numbers-matching big block to the blinker tach. Then it adds the right well-integrated upgrades, like the custom color combo, four-wheel disc brakes, and air conditioning. It all makes for the ultimate cruising classic... but if you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll wonder if it has ever even seen a mile of dusty highway.
That pride that you'll feel owning this Chevelle is upper-class confidence. This SS396 was a frame-off restoration, and you can really tell the main concern was top-quality and not the cost. It was a thoughtful build where the details are custom without ever being out of place. For example, the Emerald Green paint was not an option in '67, but it fits in with the factory color palette. It has the perfect mix of dark intimidation and a deep jewel-like luster. And the shine isn't just on the paint. There's been an investment in brightwork, too. So not only do you have mirror-like bumpers, but also the trim for the grille, bezels, door handles, and wheel well moldings are brilliant. All the best Super Sport details are in place, including the power double-dome hood, SS badging, ribbed rockers, and the dark panel inserts front and rear. Plus, this is now sitting on a modern set of wheels to make this a better driver. But the thoughtfulness in the build means those bright 18-inch alloys still carry the classic torque thrust pattern. Even the ultra-grippy ZR-rated tires look like vintage redline units.
The black convertible top looks excellent against the deep green paint, but a car like this was meant to be showcased with the roof down. After all, the green interior is the most stylish choice you can have, and there's a freshness everywhere that will make you proud to show off the full package. You'll especially love all the details everywhere from the classic redline spare tire in the trunk to the courtesy lights that greet you when you open the door. It has a true vintage atmosphere, but the upgrades are subtle. The front seats were specially ordered TMI pieces that have a vintage look but better bolstering and wide headrests for true comfort. And the door panels are a custom piece, too. And because this wants to be a comfortable cruiser you also have cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. As you slip behind the classic three-spoke steering wheel, you'll notice all the best driver pieces, including the bright shifter in the center console and 1967's unique tach that integrated the turn signal.
The engine bay needs to be this impressive. That's because when you have the numbers-matching 396 cubic-inch big block under the hood, you'll be showing it off to everyone. It's nicely dressed in a proper coat of Chevy Orange. Plus, it continues with the big-block SS tradition of chrome valve covers and a bright chrome air cleaner. The motor inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority through the dual exhaust and MagnaFlow mufflers. The trim tag even tells us this was born a four-speed car, so you are correctly in control of this powerful package. As you look underneath, you start to wonder if these cars ever even looked this clean when they came off the assembly line. And the way the green undercarriage shines brighter than some people's hood paint reminds you of just how comprehensive the frame-off restoration was. This level of freshness also means it's an exceptionally tight and confident driver. So while this restoration has hardly any miles on it, it's ready for you to enjoy it to the fullest with power steering, upgraded modern tires, and upgraded four-wheel disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, car cover, and past awards won... and we bet you're planning on taking it a few more places to pick up some more honors. This is the kind of build that requires so much attention to detail that they rarely leave their creator's hands. So if you demand the best, you require this SS in your garage. Call today!!!
