Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This is a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS tribute that is meant to be noticed. Not only do you have vibrant orange paint on this hardtop, but also a performance-built big block under the hood. And if the custom stereo doesn't have them hear you coming, the thunderous exhaust cutouts certainly will.
The 1966 Chevelle was updated to get us into the muscle car era. A firmly ceased eyebrow up front, rear fenders bulging upward, flying buttresses on the c-pillar, and taillights hooded by the extended fenders all made a substantial statement. And this one shows it off distinctly. The attention-grabbing orange paint you see on this car is an upgrade later in life. It loves the sunshine with its modern gloss and slick clearcoat appearance. But the paint was far from the only major investment in this classic. The doors shut solid; the hood and trunk line up nicely when closed; the weather-stripping feels fresh; and the bumpers have a bright polish. So you can tell this one wants admiration for more than just the paint. It also has the right Super Sport upgrades with the dual power bulges in the hood, blacked-out grille, blacked-out rear panel, SS badging, and ribbed rockers. And those chrome Ridler wheels staggered 18/20-inch front/rear for an aggressive stance hint at this hardtop's upgraded power.
The black interior looks great against the vibrant orange, and it really gets you in the mood for speedy business. So it's especially nice that there was an overall investment here in quality. This is a great driving setup with classic features like front bucket seats and a big/grippy Chevy steering wheel that's on a tilt steering column. The tach is mounted in the correct place on the column, and now it even has a shift light. There are also fresh upgrades like a center console housing a Horseshoe shifter, cup holders, and auxiliary readouts. Plus, the stereo is a Kenwood touchscreen AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth, and it connects to a full subwoofer speaker system.
The engine bay has the tidy look of big power. It's instantly attractive with smooth inner fenders, and a bright finish on the valve covers, alternator, and more. And while the callout on the air topper says this is a 427, you're actually looking at a larger 454 cubic-inch V8. More than just added displacement, this big block has a Holley four-barrel carburetor, MSD ignition, and headers for a terrific power package. It fires up with a wicked growl, but any time you really want to bring the thunder, a toggle switch under the dash opens up the electric cutouts for a brutal sound. The motor is paired with a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission that's stout enough to handle the big power as it feeds the 12-bolt rear end. Plus, power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, rear air shocks, and a rear sway bar make this powerful machine more comfortable to enjoy, too.
Complete with the build receipts, this is the iconic hardtop built for added power and bolder style. That makes for a truly irresistible muscle car. Call today!!!
