During the 1960s, smaller-sized car segments were gaining a fair bit of popularity thanks to their ease of drivability and maintenance. It prompted the American "Big Three", GM, Ford, and Chrysler to decide it was time to dabble in the class. For Chevrolet, success came in the form of the Chevelle, which began production in 1963 and saw three generations become one of the most iconic nameplates the American automaker ever made. The second-generation SS, short for ‘Super Sport’ was Chevrolet's champion in the muscle car segment. The SuperSport in discussion is a carefully-preserved machine that is up for sale in the lone star state with a mere 1000 miles on the road.
The Champaign Gold on this SS is its mostly original paint and comes with a pair of black racing stripes that run along with the extended hood of the car back to its short deck rear end. The second-gen model inherited some of the features from its predecessor such as the emblematic quad headlights, but sheet metal revisions in the 1970s models specifically gave it a coke ‘bottle design’. This specific example has aftermarket wheels wrapped in Goodrich Radial tires that are connected to RideTech suspension along with a set of Wilwood disc brakes. The full black leather interior of this Chevy looks to be in decent condition, with two aftermarket bucket seats up front, and subtle white trimmings on the gear knob and door panels. The ride includes reportedly new carpets as well as new wiring that’s concealed under the dash. What you’ll also find inside the cabin of this car is a new set of gauges and a Vintage A/C unit. The sale is coupled with its original set of wheels, steering wheel, and front bench-type seat.
Under the hood of the Chevelle sits a 396ci 6.5L engine that is equipped with aluminum heads and radiator. It features electronic fuel injection along with electric fans for reliable cooling. Also included is a stainless steel fuel tank and a recently installed battery hydraulic clutch that supports the Tremec 6-speed standard manual transmission.
