But there is no need to take our word for granted, as what we have here is an original, first-generation Chevelle SS 396 that might serve as a great case in point. And it does so courtesy of Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Garage Kept Motors, where it currently resides so proudly in its inventory. It does so while dressed up in a classic, subtle shade of Granada Gold and this two-door Sport Coupe also lays claim to a cool, contrasting atmosphere by way of a black vinyl top.
Inside, the serious allure prevails once more, complete with matching-black upholstery and a minimal amount of creature comforts, such as powered steering and brakes, among others. Back outside, additional highlights include the Rally wheels with redline tires, a measure of the attention to detail that befits a professional show-and-tell restoration project.
Under the hood, there is more good news, with the L34 V8 sporting the appropriate, matching numbers for a 396ci engine of the period. And that 350-horsepower stable (at the time of original manufacturing) is properly sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed Muncie stick shift transmission.
Last, but certainly not least, the ’67 Chevy Chevelle SS 396 shows a mere 31,909 miles (51,353 km) reading on the odometer – though we have no information if that is also original or of the nasty TMU (total mileage unknown) variety. Alas, we do know this to be a rather pricey grab, as the asking quotation stands at exactly $89,900.
