Produced through the 1964-1978 model years, the Chevelle was one of Chevrolet’s most successful nameplates. Throughout all years, the 1969 Chevelles were billed as “America’s most popular mid-size car.” Our featured 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle is an SS 396 version with the most powerful engine available in the 1969 series fitted to it. This stylish two-door convertible is offered in remarkable condition inside-out and is located in Florida.
On the front, a single chrome bar is connected to the quad headlights, which became a familiar Chevrolet trademark. The exterior is finished in bright red and features SS 396 badging. Five-spoke mag wheels and BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires complete the look. The interior is black in color and spacious enough for five passengers. The dashboard is equipped with speedometer and tachometer gauges, battery/gas/oil pressure/temperature gauges, light knobs, A/C controls, wiper controls, and a radio.
Under the hood is the 6.5L 396CI V8 engine, the top-of-the-line engine in the series, and features a built camshaft. This engine delivers 375 horsepower at 5600rpm and 415 pound-feet of torque at 3600rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a three-speed Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission.
