Description of 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle

When your 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS tribute car has an amazing shine, upscale appearance, upgraded interior, and the heart of a true champion, you know you're looking at something quite special. So enjoy all the details, but don't take too long, or this big block muscle machine will be gone.We love rich burgundy paint on a car like this. It shares the aggressiveness of being in the red family, but the deeper tones give it a feeling of sophistication that is heightened by the premium black vinyl roof. It looks particularly striking on this Chevelle thanks to a respray in 2011. And quite frankly, when someone is willing to make the big investment in super straight panels and a professional paint application, it's an easy (but expensive) recipe for grabbing attention. This one has much more going for it than just the burgundy. The Super Sport dual power bulging hood is a nice aggressive touch. Plus, the grille, headlight side extensions, tail panel, and iconic D96 stripes have the great blacked-out appearance that adds to this car's intimidation. Since the black also matches the roof, this car has the attraction of a well-coordinated package. Cap it off with great chrome on the bumper, trim, and iconic rally wheels, and you have a stunner to show off everywhere.The black interior is what we love to see on muscle machines, and it looks particularly nice here as it again matches the exterior accents. The seats, carpets, door panels, headliner, and dash all have a deep and dark appearance. But there are some nice elements to brighten up the whole layout, like the Hurst floor shifter, and wood & chrome steering wheel. This one has room to seat six comfortably, and you get some great features for keeping the miles worry-free. It includes the trio of auxiliary gauges and provisions for an AM/FM stereo that looks retro, but it also has the modern adaptability for Bluetooth.Under the hood is a big block 396 cubic-inch V8 that looks highly original with its Chevy orange radiating from the black engine bay. We all love the look of the shining valve covers and the factory air topper with the 396 callouts. As you dig deeper, you'll discover that this block codes to a 1969 SS396. Yes, it's the real big block performance legend under the hood. And more than just a great appearance, this one fires up with the kind of assurance that there has been the right care and maintenance over the years. The V8 inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor and Weiand intake, it exhales with authority out of long tube headers that feed a rumbling dual exhaust. So, this big block has the power you love in a nicely presented and well-maintained package. But all this V8 power needs the right kind of control, that's why you have a stout three-speed automatic transmission that connects to a 12-bolt Positraction rear end. This anytime driving attitude is heightened further by power steering and front disc brakes.Complete with owner's manual, reproduction window sticker, and original Protect-O-Plate, you're going to love the history and presentation of this Chevy. Plus, sharp coupes with great performance are always popular. So if you appreciate substance and style, this restored Chevelle is a home run. Call now!!
