1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396
Fully-Restored California Sport Coupe
Offered here is one of the cleanest Chevelle's we've ever had for sale, with a rare factory color combo. Our client restored this car from the ground up nine years ago, finishing it in factory original Tropic Turquoise (Code L) over a Medium Turquoise interior. This is a true Super Sport 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle 2-Door Sport Coupe and is powered by a rebuilt numbers matching 396ci/325hp 4bbl L35 big block. No expense was spared in the restoration and you can tell. Be sure to check out over 180 photos on our main website, including undercarriage: Garage Kept Motors.
The front license plate is a California plate because this car is originally from the Golden Coast. According to our NCRS Historic records, the car was originally sold through Lambert Chevrolet of Orland, CA. The official GM production date was February 23, 1966. It has power steering, power brakes, front disc brakes, and a 12-bolt Posi rear end. The transmission has been upgraded to a 700R4 and a brand new Vintage Air Conditioning system was just installed. The car fires on command, runs strong, shifts smooth, and will guarantee you thumbs up and waves at every street corner.
1966 is a highly-sought after year for Chevrolet enthusiasts. Finding another one this clean in this color combination will be hard to come by. An incredible, rust-free vehicle in search of its next garage to call home. It also comes with a folder of restoration receipts and the original California title. Call if interested or e-mail with questions. Thank you for looking.
