Chevrolet marked its introduction into the muscle car arena with its first generation of Chevelles, which debuted in 1964. Its nimble size and crisp styling were the perfect complement to its ever-more-powerful engine lineup. And when equipped with the “Super Sport” option, its top of the line Malibu sported bucket seats and center console, among other unique styling cues.
This stunning 1966 Chevelle SS clone is finished in Regal Red. Its gorgeous finish has a mirror-like luster that is further enhanced by chrome and brightwork that is in excellent condition. Its simulated hood air scoops, brand new BF Goodrich red line tires and brand new American Racing Equipment mag wheels provide just the right amount of pop.
Its new interior shows equally well with its Black Strato-bucket seats and center console, featuring a fully integrated clock. Its tachometer and full battery of auxiliary Summit gauges will keep you informed about what’s going on under the hood, and its Hurst shifter will show that you mean business. Its modern AM/FM stereo with CD player is a welcome addition.
Under the hood is a newly rebuilt 396 CID V-8 bored .30 over which generates 375 horsepower. The engine is mated to a newly rebuilt Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. Other optional features include power steering and power front disc brakes. You’ll also appreciate this Chevelle’s many performance upgrades, including the following:
Having less than 5,000 miles on the rebuilt powertrain, this car runs and drives as well as it looks.
Minor imperfections in the glass do not detract from the overall appearance of this car. It should also be noted that the horn is not currently working.
If a gorgeous Chevelle with the looks and performance of a Super Sport is what you desire, this is the car for you!
