This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 tribute is impressive well beyond just the first impression. With its sleek appearance, awesomely distinct color combo, powerful big block under the hood, and upgraded control of a five-speed, this coupe enhances everything you love about this muscle car icon.
Maroon is a great color to have. You get a similar boldness to red, but there's also a deeper and more sophisticated tone. The upgraded paint has a glossy finish and metallic element that .....
gets noticed when you drive in the sunshine. In fact, it's such a smooth look that they deleted the panel badging to really make sure the good body lines are showcased by the sleek finish. So yes, this is a car that people are going to remember. The bright chrome bumpers, good seals, and clean glass is part of this coupe's unforgettable presentation. And this is not only sleek, but it's also mean with well-done Super Sport upgrades like the dual power domes on the hood, mag-style SS wheels, a blackout grille, and the wide dual exhaust tips. Plus, the later model dual SS stripes are done in black and silver for extra distinction, and they were painted for permanence. So this is the kind of coupe where you can tell they invested extra time and money to make it awesome.
Black interiors always look great on these Chevelle hardtops. This one shows recent investments in the carpeting, door panels, and upholstery. So you'll happily leave the windows rolled down on this pillarless hardtop to showcase everything inside. The setup has the right level of vintage style, right down to the Astro Ventilation tag above the glovebox and two wide rows of bench seats. But there are the right upgrades for the kind of car you want to drive in modern times. The dual-spoke SS steering wheel is on a tilt column, and have you counted the number of gears on the shifter yet? Plus, there's a full set of AutoMeter Cobalt readouts, including a large speedo and tach in front of you as well as an auxiliary gauge trio under the dash. They even upgraded the stereo to a retro sound AM/FM unit so that you can have your favorite driving music, too.
Under the hood is a period correct 396 cubic-inch big block motor upgrade. It's a tidy setup with the right level of flair with plenty of polished pieces. You can even spot nice supporting components like the aluminum radiator, electric fan, and an electric vacuum pump. Of course, the best investment we love to see on a big block are the ones that give us more power. This has Promaxx aluminum heads, a Weiand intake, and topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. Hedman long tube headers add power while feeding the X-pipe dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. This big block Chevelle fires up eagerly with a nice rumble, and it warms up to be a strong runner. And control of this enhanced big block and its rumbling soundtrack is firmly in your command thanks to the Tremec five-speed manual transmission upgrade. As you look underneath this build, you'll spot suspension upgrades, including QA1 tubular front A-arms, boxed steel rear arms, thick sway bars, and adjustable coilovers all around. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, and front discs front to make sure this powerful Chevelle is also a nice hardtop cruiser.
