With the ponycar business entering high gear by 1967, the muscle car race was not far behind. Chevrolet’s entry in the latter was Chevelle’s SS 396, just like this example!
Just three years before 1967, General Motors unveiled its new line of mid-sized cars to slot between the traditional full-sizers and the compacts revealed in 1960 (Corvair) and 1962 (Chevy II).
Made in GM’s Atlanta, Georgia factory (VIN code A) during the first week of June 1967. It came with the following options – a Muncie four-speed, wide-ratio manual transmission (code RPO M20), a tinted windshield (code A02), center console (code D55) and rear antenna (code U73).
The car is dressed in correct Bolero Red (code R) and the paint and trim are in overall excellent order. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, there’s an AC Delco battery and the chrome bumpers are in great shape and fit tightly to the body.
This SS Chevelle rolls on Red Line radials, size 215/75R14 at every corner. Each tire is mounted to an original Rally wheel. The wheels are in excellent order while the tires are in very good condition.
Under the hood is the SS 396 CID V-8 paired to an original four-speed wide-ratio Muncie manual transmission (code M20) and 12-bolt Positraction rear end with 3.36:1 gearing. Driver convenience features include vintage air-conditioning that blows nice and cold.
Inside, the car’s correct red interior (code 750) is in overall excellent condition, with the low-back front bucket seats and a rear bench. The matching red carpet and headliner are in similar shape. A correct three-spoke steering wheel with the SS in the hub faces the driver and looks great. The dashboard, with its strip-style speedometer and ignition switch plus the inner door panels are all in excellent order. The car’s correct center console, with its shifter, clock and a trio of aftermarket gauges help round out the interior, along with a factory AM radio and air conditioning vents.
The 1967 models received a facelift. Large wraparound taillamps went into a new rear end with standard backup lights. “What you'll see inside,” claimed the sales brochure for the 1967 Chevelle, “will probably bring on a severe compulsion to go driving.” Front disc brakes were available on all models and a new dual master cylinder brake system incorporated a warning light. Chevrolet also added 14-inch wheels. New safety equipment became standard, including a collapsible steering column. The SS396 continued as its own series with both sport coupe and convertible body styles.
This is a well sorted out and honest ’67 Chevelle SS with exceptional road manners and tons of integrity. If you’re even remotely interested in a classic American Muscle Car, then what’s stopping you from visiting MotoeXotica Classic Cars? Stop by today!
