Big block power moves this Chevelle.
In many ways, certain cars can perfectly define a generation. For the 1960’s it didn’t get more iconic than the Chevelle SS. A large displacement engine, simple but accommodating interior, and sporty style is what made the muscle car era and Chevy’s arguably most successful nameplate had everything you’d want to slide behind the wheel to experience.
Although the purist might disagree, one of the coolest features to come out of this part of automotive history was that the cars were highly customizable. This led to many examples being modified which, for the consumer, did two things. One, it skyrocketed the value of original examples and, two, it left the automotive world with some truly awesome custom examples.
Take this red and black 1969 Chevelle SS 396 for example. It goes further than even Chevy did for power with performance upgrades like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, and MSD 6AL ignition. And those long tube headers add even more muscle while also contributing to the rumble of the X-pipe dual exhaust.
It’s backed by a three-speed automatic transmission, has power steering for easy handling, power brakes with discs up front for stopping power, and wide BF Goodrich T/A tires for grip.
The bold red and black theme is seen on the inside as well, with a distinctive interior with bucket seats, center console, horseshoe shifter, and grippy SS steering wheel.
