DESCRIPTION

1967 was a great year for the Chevelle (many feel it was the greatest), and when you find an uber-clean 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 hardtop like this, it probably makes sense to build the nicest car you can around it. Gorgeous Capri Cream paint doesn't hurt, either, because you want it to get noticed, and with a thumping 454 cubic inch big block under the hood, a quick-shifting 4-speed manual managing the gears, and a long list of top options joining the party in this recently restored muscle car, you can afford to boast and flex some swagger out on the street.



The later Chevelles get a lot of attention these days, but in '67, the car was elegant, smooth, and restrained, and in a rather subdued color like factory-correct Code T Capri Cream, it doesn't seem to be trying too hard. With a stock hood with those cool inserts to set it apart from all the cars wearing fake cowl-induction units, this very attractive Chevelle was beautifully finished for the show field just 3,155 miles ago, but still knows how to have fun on the street. The bodywork is extremely well done and the paint, while not a perfect trailer queen presentation, is pretty darned close; quite frankly it's one of the nicest we've seen at this price point in many years. No stripes or other add-ons, but it does have a proper SS grille and crossed-flag badges on its flanking fenders, both a part of the SS package that also included a big block 396 V8 engine. The badges say '396' but today there's a bit more living under the hood, but the warning is certainly appreciated. The '67s are also neat because of their exquisite chrome details, including shiny bumpers, a bright, eye-catching grille, and some of the most attractive taillights of the era. Add in the rocker panel moldings and the blacked-out tailpanel and it takes on a more formal air, although the raked stance and dual exhaust pipes behind the rear tires let everyone know this Chevelle can throw down whenever, wherever.



Black upholstery works perfectly with the cream exterior, and it's a nice break from the lighter colors we sometimes see in the 'sleeper' Chevelles of old. It has been completely restored to stock specs using a combination of new and a few original pieces (mostly found in the dash), with beautiful black seat covers on the buckets and rear bench, slick matching door panels, a factory center console, and plush black carpets and a taut headliner that seal the cabin up tightly. The bright accent parts and crisp detailing give it a like-new look inside with hardly any signs of use to speak of, particularly the 3-spoke SS steering wheel and nicely presented factory instruments just beyond it, which are joined by an auxiliary tachometer to the left. A console with a chrome 4-speed shifter looks great and adds to this car's performance credentials, and it's joined by a factory clock just ahead one of the SS's coolest factory features. Options include factory A/C with upgraded hardware and modern R134a refrigerant under the hood, although the system is still managed via the original control panel in the center of the dash, and just above it a retro-style AM/FM/Cassette stereo was neatly added as well. Even the trunk is correctly appointed, finished with spatter paint and protected via a plaid mat cover on the floor and over the spare tire.



So, like we mentioned before, the badges say '396' but that's actually a newer 454 cubic inch big block that's been dressed up like a stocker, right down to the decals on the air cleaner. The extra 58 cubes certainly help with horsepower and with a Holley Street Avenger 4-barrel carburetor, performance intake manifold, long-tube headers, and an HEI ignition system, it definitely has the moves to live up to its looks. There's correct Chevy Orange paint on the block, a reproduction decal on the stock air cleaner (showing 375 horsepower), and big block valve covers adorned in shiny chrome, just as they should be. A quick-shifting 4-speed manual transmission will take all the punishment the 454 can dish out, as can the heavy-duty 12-bolt out back, so don't be afraid to lean on the loud pedal now and then. The underside is beautifully restored with color-matched pans, satin-black painted axles, and fresh components throughout, suggesting this was a frame-off, nut-and-bolt job from start-to-finish. The stainless dual exhaust system with throaty chambered mufflers sounds suitably aggressive for fun on the street, and the gas tank is so clean it looks like it was put in yesterday. Factory 15-inch Rally wheels with beauty rings and center caps look right and are fitted with 225/70/15 front and 235/70/15 rear BFGoodrich redline radials that are exactly right for a vintage muscle car.



Beautifully turned out and only a little bit sneaky, this is a great-running big block Chevelle SS that's ready to enjoy. The fact that it was recently finished is the icing on the cake. Call to
