ORIGINAL CORTEZ SILVER CAR, NEW PAINT, NICE WORKING VINTAGE A/C, BIG BLOCK

Year-in and year-out, few cars are as popular as the Chevy Chevelle. Cars like this 1969 SS396 are consistently in demand by collectors and guys who just like speed, and with a stout big block under the hood, this car definitely delivers.

The code 69 Cortez Silver paint is this car's original color, now rendered in stunning two-stage urethane that looks miles deep. The paint job is only a few months old, so there's nary a flaw to be found, and no worries about what might be lurking underneath, because this is a car that has spent its life someplace warm and dry and one glance at the undercarriage will convince you that this car isn't from the snow belt. Good gaps, lots of extra effort on the block sanding, and contrasting black stripes that were buried under the clear all make this car look incredible when you see it in the flesh. All the right SS equipment is in place, too, including the black grille, SS emblems all around, and twin oval exhaust tips under the bumper, just in case the guy you just passed missed the other warning signs. We like that they kept it stock on the outside, which means a flat hood and only one side mirror, both of which contribute to its street-fighter nature.

Black buckets flanking a center console is how everyone wants their Chevelle configured, and with a few smart upgrades it's a first-class way to have fun on a Saturday night. The upholstery is in excellent shape, replicating the factory look, right down to the nicely detailed door panels. New carpets enhance the plush feel inside and a Custom Autosound AM/FM stereo actually sounds pretty darned good, even with the bark of the exhaust behind you. Factory gauges include an optional factory tach which is always cool and the horseshoe shifter for the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is still the best way to select gears. This is a factory A/C car, but all the hardware that chills the air is new, including the compressor under the hood and the R134a refrigerant inside, so it's quite effective. The trunk is outfitted with a correct mat as well as a full-sized spare tire and wheel assembly.

The engine says 396, but it's actually a 402 cubic inch V8 from 1971 and it runs superbly. Many of you may know that the 396 and 402 were basically the same thing, more just a numbers game played by GM to have a bigger displacement motor than the competition. There's a mildly upgraded cam inside and a Weiand intake manifold with 4-barrel carburetor up top. It looks pretty good wearing Chevy Orange engine enamel as well as factory-style chrome valve covers and an open-element air cleaner, all of which help reinforce the OEM look. Long-tube headers add torque (like this car needs more torque) and feed a Hooker Aerochamber dual exhaust system that sounds spectacular. And like I said, the underside, while not restored and detailed for show, is definitely ready to play on the street. A 12-bolt rear end means it won't be easy to break and classic SS wheels with Goodyear Eagles look great.

We sell a lot of these, and it's not hard to understand why. Great looks, lots of performance, and even a modicum of comfort for long cruises thanks to the A/C system, this is truly the kind of collector car that can do it all. Call today!
