1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396

This is a genuine 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 that was originally built in Kansas City, Missouri. Its pedigree is identified with the correct 138 VIN code.

This car is top-of-the-line for Chevelle and with its 396 cubic inch V8 (that's 6.5 liters), she's a beautiful beast. That power is paired up with a Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission.

The front of the original brochure confidently told us, " What you'll see inside will probably bring on a severe compulsion to go driving. (If so, consider yourself a healthy, discriminating motorist.)"

Great sporty lines!

The SS 396 was easy to spot against other Chevelles with it's black accented grille with SS 396 badge, brightwork around the front and back wheel housing, simulated air intakes on the hood, body sill moldings and black painted rear cove with SS 396 medallion.

Gorgeous interior with optional Stato bucket seats.

A model in its own right from 1966 to 1968, the SS 396 then became an option package in 1969. Also, from 1966 if you wanted a Super Sport it had to be a big block V8 - no sixes or small blocks were offered right up to 1971.
