1969 Chevy Chevelle SS 396: A Collector Car You Can Daily Drive
Take this fully restored LeMans Blue 1969 Chevelle SS 396, that is currently being offered at the OK Classics February 2021 Classic Car Auction through Proxibid, for example. Though to the untrained eye it may look pretty close to original, it is not. Under the hood is a 402-cid V8 engine that breathes deeper, fires hotter, and makes more power than the original 396. It has been fitted with a Holley 4V carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold, and a Comp Cams CB-270H camshaft. This combination of parts produces an estimated 360-horsepower. Supporting all of the newfound power is a GM HEI Distributor with MSD ignition wires, an Edelbrock high volume fuel pump, a set of Hedman ceramic coated headers, and an M20 Muncie 4-speed transmission with a Hurst shifter.
