1966 Chevrolet Chevelle - 396 V8 4 - Speed Transmission


Description


The 396 badges aren't joking, under the hood you'll find a professionally built big block Chevy that has been dressed up for show duty. The block has been fitted with a 4340 steel crank, dimple high performance rods, Wisco Teflon skirted pistons, rectangular port heads, comp cams solid lifter cam with correct specs for the 375 or 425 HP 396 big block. Roller rockers, winter foundry aluminum intake, 750 proform double pumper carburetor, MSD digital ignition with rev control were also added. The inner fenders and firewall have been finished to the same high standards as the quarter panels. An aluminum radiator keeps things cool, and Hooker Headers take care of the 3 inch stainless exhaust. And it isn't just pretty, it runs extremely well with big torque that will absolutely shred the rear wheels in first and second gear. It runs cool, the power accessories work, and it simply goes about its business without any fussing or nursing. Is this the ultimate summer cruiser? I'm thinking it is.

Behind the engine is a close ratio Muncie 4 - speed transmission, which has snappy reflexes, a strong first gear for neck-snapping acceleration, and a set of Richmond 3.55 gears for when you're just cruising. Built to drive, the chassis is fitted with Hotchkis suspension components. Those Hooker headers dump into a big dual stainless exhaust system that sounds awesome. The brakes have been rebuilt to stock specifications and feature new shocks and bushings, so this cruiser rides like a brand new Chevelle. 15-inch chrome American Racing wheels wear 26X8.00R15 front and P275/60/15 rear Mickey Thompson's.

Inside the red bench seat has been reupholstered to original specifications. The perfect red door panels, carpet, dash cover, floor mats and seat belts really make this interior pop. The gauges have been nicely restored, and there is an Autogage tachometer mounted to the steering column. That wood-rimmed steering wheel is a nice touch in finishing off the interior. Under the deck lid, the trunk is nicely finished in spatter finish gray with a Chevelle black carpet in place of the original rubber mat. You'll also notice the matching spare rim and tire.
