This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is a real-deal Super Sport with proper big block power, four-on-the-floor, and an awesome factory-correct color combo. So if you want a muscle machine and a standout presence, this is the hardtop for you.
Matador Red is an ideal factory color to have on a real-deal SS396. After all it has a bold look and even a name that feels like it's prodding this bull-like muscle car. Like a good classic American icon, this has nice brightwork in all the right places, including the form-fitting chrome bumpers, full trim package, and Mag-style SS wheels. But what's especially appealing is this one feels like it has a special attitude where it mixes a sporty and premium style. After all, you have that ultra-cool white SS stripe package that runs across the front of the hood before dipping down to the sides and running the full length of the car. And on this one, it coordinates with the upgraded white vinyl roof that draws extra attention to the iconic pillarless hardtop profile.
All that white accenting on the exterior also gets you read for the full parchment white interior. This is the factory-correct color, and you can tell they have made a solid investment in a combination of preservation and restoration. That's why its looks complete and clean from the SS 396 door panels to the button-top finish of the seats. Even the AM radio is still cranking out tunes! And because the high-traffic areas of this bright white interior are finished in black (like the steering wheel and fresh carpeting) it means you don't even think about dusting off your shoes before going for a ride. And this one is really meant to be enjoyed anytime. Bucket seats, a center console, and that Hurst cue ball shifter are the kind of features that make you always want to go for a drive.
The engine bay has more of that well-respected look. Tidy wires, clean hoses, and an overall fresh appearance really lets you see the big block in the middle. This 402 cubic-inch motor respects the factory look with a bright block, shining valve covers, and a matching air topper with callout. It fires up readily as the proper Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor lets the V8 inhale deeply. And the dual exhaust exhales with a deep, but respectful, tone. The four-speed manual transmission gives you full control over this big block, and the power steering and wide BF Goodrich T/As give you control over the full driving experience.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the SS396 that defines a big block with an awesome attitude. So don't miss you chance at powerful distinction, call today!
