Lot #364 - This gorgeous black Chevelle convertible is a tribute to the venerable SS 396. From its big block hood, red pinstripe matching the Firestone redline tires, SS 396 badging and beautiful bright work, this car stands out from the crowd. In the engine bay, the big block 454 V8 breathes through a polished high rise intake manifold and full-length headers. An electronic ignition system provides a reliable spark while an aluminum radiator with a 6-blade fan keeps things cool. Chrome air cleaner, alternator, valve covers, brake booster and reservoir add a bright finishing touch under the hood. The interior of this car is truly unique with the seats and door panels covered in distressed dark brown glove leather. A chrome 4-speed shifter sits between the front bucket seats while a Custom Autosound AM/FM radio with a USB iPod/mp3 hookup provide a source for music. A black manual top helps keep the elements out while the finished trunk gives you a nice place to store your stuff. Rounding out the drivetrain is a 4-speed Muncie manual transmission and a 12-bolt posi-traction rear while the 4-wheel independent suspension rides on updated polyurethane bushings, Firestone red line tires and Rally wheels.
