1966 was the year of the first major Chevelle restyle. If you look at the timeline of the Chevelle's brief but popular run, you can easily see when redesigns like this occurred! Because of the drastic differences in each generation (and even between each year!) Chevelle enthusiasts are often looking for a very specific car.
This 1966 is of one of the most iconic generations of Chevelle and is packing lots of goodies that would make it a fine vehicle for any enthusiast looking for a REAL SS396 1966 Chevelle convertible. That's right, this is a true 138 VIN car. For those unfamiliar, the 138 VIN indicates that this was built as a real Super Sport Chevelle and is not a clone. Although the original 396 engine is long gone, in its place sits a 402 Chevrolet big block (suffix code CKN) out of a 1970 Chevelle! The engine bay looks clean and correct but ""Day Two"" cosmetic upgrades are in place including valve covers and air cleaner. A 4-speed manual transmission is in place, as it should be in any classic SS Chevelle!
The exterior is very clean and is missing nothing. The Butternut Yellow paint is an iconic and flattering color on this car! This is a very presentable car that would be an excellent candidate for someone looking to own a real-deal SS Chevelle! The body itself is clean and straight, leaving this car in great overall cosmetic condition. The black convertible top is the perfect contrast against the yellow, and a modern set of 17"" wheels are a nice touch.
The interior is black with buckets; an ideal match to a yellow exterior! This car left the factory with black vinyl when it was built in Baltimore, MD the first week of June 1966. Aftermarket gauges mounted under the dash ensure accurate readings for important engine information. Overall, this Chevelle is in excellent condition and has all of the positive attributes any discerning buyer would want in a real-deal 138 Chevelle SS.
This car is turn-key and ready to be enjoyed as-is! If you're looking for a perfect candidate to put back to looking 100% factory stock, this Chevelle convertible would be the perfect starting point. This deal won't last long!
