As you will notice in the photo gallery, the front license plate is a California plate, because this Chevrolet Chevelle SS is originally from the Golden Coast. According to NCRS historic records, the car was originally sold through Lambert Chevrolet of Orland, California. The official GM production date was February 23, 1966 at the Fremont Assembly Plant. This Chevelle comes with power steering, power brakes, front disc brakes, and a 12-bolt Posi rear end. The transmission has been upgraded to a 700R4 and a brand-new Vintage Air Conditioning system was just installed. The car fires right up, runs strong, shifts smoothly, and drives great. What’s more, you’ll be getting head nods, waves, and thumbs up everywhere you go. Be prepared to stun at car shows and be immersed in several gas station conversations with this beauty.
