Now for some Serious Sixties Muscle!

This magnificent genuine 13817 code 396 SS Chevelle has just recently undergone an extremely extensive long term full rotisserie restoration which has been carried out to a very high standard by its long time, and very passionate owner.

This is one of those rare examples that has been restored by someone who truly loved the car, and the time invested and financial cost was completely irrelevant, this quite clearly shows throughout the entire vehicle, and also ensures that the lucky new owner will get a completely sorted and fully fettled proper Muscle Car at a fraction of its replacement cost to this standard today.

Every aspect of this stunning Chevelle is either fully rebuilt or brand new, starting from the bottom up with the fully powder coated chassis, all of the mechanicals are completely new including the fully rebuilt 454 engine, running early 396 heads, with Harland Sharp roller rockers, and a new 750 carb, through into the perfect fit (no cutting) 5 speed Tremac gearbox, and on into the 12 bolt 3:3.1 possi rear, with the entire package basically being just "run in" having cover approximately 5000 kms since its completion.

The chassis has also been equipped with power disc brakes, and is fitted with power steering, front and rear sway bars, and a full Tru-Fit vintage A/C unit.

The body which has been stripped right back down to the bare metal, is beautifully laser straight, with panel fitment and lines far better than when it was new back in 66, and after being fully dyna matted, the gorgeous body has then been repainted in a stunning Blueprint Blue to a very high standard of finish with an exceptional glass like appearance.

The interior has also been fully and sympathetically restored, and everything is just as it should be from the neat two spoke sports steering wheel to the old school swept tach, and full centre console with the Hurst shifter splitting the factory buckets, to correct camera finish on the dashboard, along with a fully integrated high quality sound system, and the all new glass throughout, this car is simply stunning.

This very special car has a very interesting history.....it has been here in NZ since it was two years old, still has its original old paper ownership papers, and still retains the original black licence plates, which it can be seen wearing in the accompanying December 1970 NZ Hot Rod magazine road test carried out by Rob Campbell!

The driving experience is one not easily forgotten.. this big Coupe covers the tarmac at an alarming rate yet returns a truly pleasant feel back to the driver with excellent road manners which is very refreshing for such a serious piece of gear.

Inspection will impress a genuine buyer for a true Sixties Big Block no nonsense Muscle Car.
