Chevelle SS 1968

Title Status --
Exterior Color Cranberry Red
Interior Color Black


When you can find a real-deal Super Sport 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 that has all the features you want including an amazing frame-off restoration, bigger big block, and four-wheel disc brakes. Well then, you can see that this is a shining example of true muscle car desire.

For many, the '68 SS 396 is the perfect balance of speed and sophistication, and this one showcases all of that particularly well. After all, red is a great aggressive color. And the intimidation continues on the fastback profile, dual power bulge hood, and classic Cragar SS wheels. But as people get closer, this really starts to show it's a cut-above classic. We have thousands $$$$ in receipts documenting the level of investment in a frame-off restoration. It gives this Chevelle a butter-smooth look that's an instant reminder it's one of Chevy's most handsome designs ever. This one is great, right down to the details, like the blacked-out grille extensions. They coordinate with the blacked-out rear panel and full stripe package to deliver a nice hint at this coupe's dark side.

The black interior is what we love to see on muscle machines, and it looks particularly nice here as it coordinates with the exterior accents. Also, we all love bucket seats with a center console in these Super Sports. The door panels, carpeting, seat covers, and dash all clearly see there was time and money spent to make sure it looks classic but feel fresh. Plus, there are some nice upgrades, like the Grant GT sports steering wheel (power steering), auxiliary gauge trio, and retro-style AM/FM stereo. So this is a nice place to spend some time.

When you open the hood, the glossy black fender walls, polished accessories, and overall tidy presentation tell you there was a solid investment in the engine bay. But more than just look great, this SS 396 has been upgraded to 454 cubic inches of big block power. Plus, this was enhanced further with a Summit Racing 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Summit hi-rise intake, MSD ignition, and Hooker headers that add power while also contributing to the thunder of the 3-inch X-pipe dual exhaust. The strong TH400 three-speed automatic is a stout unit built by Coan Racing and includes a 280mm torque converter. This feeds a Moser Engineering 12-bolt rear end. Don't forget to check out the undercarriage photos. There you'll see the freshness difference that comes from a frame-off restoration. Plus, you'll spot terrific upgrades, including CPP suspension upgrades, sway bars front & rear, Energy suspension bushings, and Moog coil springs. And the Wilwood drilled & slotted four-wheel disc brakes bring plenty of modern stopping power to this classic Chevelle.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, maintenance records, build receipts, and plenty of restoration photos. This is the real-deal SS 396 that's fresh with all the right upgrades. So you know you need to get this in your garage. Call today!!!
