1967 Chevy Chevelle SS 396

This is a genuine 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 that was originally built in Kansas, MO. This triple black beauty has its pedigree verified with the correct 138 VIN code.

This car is top-of-the-line for Chevelle and with its 396 cubic inch V8, she’s a beautiful beast. That power is paired up with a four-speed manual transmission.

The front of the original brochure confidently told us, “What you’ll see inside will probably bring on a severe compulsion to go driving. (If so, consider yourself a healthy, discriminating motorist.)”

A model in its own right from 1966 to 1968, the SS 396 then became an option package in 1969. Also, from 1966 if you wanted a Chevelle Super Sport it had to be a big block V8 – no sixes or small blocks were offered right up to 1971.

Standard for the Chevelle SS396 was the mighty 396 cubic inch Turbo-Jet V8 that came with a 3-speed manual transmission and output 325 horsepower. However, this car was chosen with the optional L34 396 that output 350 hp and would have cost an additional $105.
