This is the kind of muscle car recipe you love to see. Take a genuine code-138 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport hardtop, add big block power, bright red paint, stout suspension components, and a ferocious growl. It creates the kind of coupe that delivers the power and presence you want from an SS hardtop.
The red paint is an application from later in life. Today that means a nice shine that sets the tone right for a good-looking car that\'s also meant to be a driver. Plus, you can instantly tell this is an upgraded machine. The 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels have a meatier rear set for a speedy stance. Plus, the upgrade to the cowl hood lets everyone know there\'s a beast under there. And, of course, a real-deal Super Sport like this has the correct SS details, such as the blackout grille, full badging, and ribbed rockers. More than just a powerful style, there\'s a nice overall impression thanks to details like the well-fitting doors and quality shine from the big chrome bumpers. It is a driver\'s car that also knows how to impress everyone it passes on the road.
The interior has the proper classic SS feel with low-back front bucket seats, a center console, and a speedometer as long as the horizon. Plus, upgrades like a Grant GT wood-rimmed steering wheel and AutoMeter AutoGage readout under the dash for oil pressure and coolant temp. You may want to do some easy upgrades like the radio and carpeting if you\'re going for an all-day cruiser kind of car. But the vibe it has now feels like a powerful car that\'s good for any time enjoyment.
This may have callouts for a 427 big block on the outside, but you\'ll discover the engine bay is housing a LARGER 454 cubic-inch V8. You get a bigger big block, and go-fast goodies like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, and Hooker long tube headers add even more power while also contributing to the thunder of the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. There are also nice supporting components like shining Moroso valve covers, an Accel super coil distributor, and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. The TH400 three-speed transmission has a reverse manual valve body to give you firm control over the big block\'s power. This is a setup that was made to own the blacktop. You have stout components like a 12-bolt rear end and boxed lower control arms. But there are also features like front discs that are part of a solid cruising package.
