1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS3 Restomod Description

This 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle may have been born a real-deal Super Sport, but today it's so much more. The slick modern paint hides a 480hp LS3 V8 and five-speed stick underneath. So dig into the details on a fresh, stunning, and absolutely powerful restomod build.

The paint is the first thing that will really make you take extra notice of this hardtop. At first glance it may look like an ultra-slick black, but soon you'll really see it's a dark charcoal modern finish with plenty of clearcoat. And when the sunshine hits the metallic element, there's a hint of brightness. So the total impression looks like the midnight sky full of stars. And while the paint commands attention, they made sure the rest of the car lives up to this high standard with mirror-like bumpers, crisp body panels, and doors that close with authority. This is a real-deal Super Sport, and so it has all the right elements, like the blacked-out grille, faux hood vents, ribbed rocker panels, and proper SS badging all-around. But those large 17-inch alloys, LED halo headlights, and LS3 badging offers a few nice hints at the big modern upgrades beneath the skin.

Inside, they invested nicely inside to make sure it is fresh, dark, and ready to show off. You get plenty of great vintage details, like the center console and dual-spoke sports steering wheel. This one has been upgraded subtly for some extra comfort, like the extra padding in the bucket seats, a tilt steering column, and the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner. And just like the exterior, you get a few hints at the upgrade under the hood with the Dakota Digital gauge package and have you counted the gears on the stick shift pattern yet?

The callouts on the fenders were not lying. This one really is powered by a modern LS3 motor. The 6.2-liter fuel-injected V8 is rated at 480 horsepower. It's truly one of the most potent powerplants from Chevrolet, and because there's less than 1,500 miles on this build, this major upgrade retains a fresh show-ready appearance. More than just look great, they made sure to install this correctly, including the right supporting components, like a serpentine belt system, braided hoses, and an Afco aluminum radiator with electric fan. It inhales deeply with a Spectre air element and exhales with authority as Hooker headers feed the dual exhaust. And control of this high-performance V8 and its thunderous soundtrack is firmly in your command thanks to the Tremec TKO five-speed manual transmission. This feeds the 12-bolt rear end with quick action 4.10 gears. Plus, you have power steering, sway bars front & rear, power brakes w/discs up front, and grippy modern ZR-rated tires.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance records. This is a fresh builD with sleek looks, great quality, and a ton of power. So you know you don't want this Chevelle SS restomod to end up in someone else's garage. Call today!!!
