The Chevelle was a mid-sized motorcar of which three generations were manufactured between 1964 and 1977. It proved to be one of Chevrolet's most successful models and could be purchased in Coupe, Saloon, Convertible and Estate car guises. As one would expect of such a General Motors product, it came with a myriad of trim and performance options, one of which was dubbed the SS 396. At various times this was a model in its own right, but by 1970 the SS 396 package could only be had as an add-on to the Malibu Sport Coupe, Malibu Convertible and El Camino Pick-Up versions of the Chevelle. It now included what was officially described as a 'Power Dome' bonnet, black-accented grille, resilient rear bumper insert and Firestone 'Wide Oval' tyres on five-spoke Rallye wheels.

Finished in Blue Metallic (colour code 28) with White upholstery and Dark Grey carpets, this particular 'matching numbers' Coupe example was supplied new via Rumsey Chevrolet of Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. Built to special order at GM's Baltimore, Maryland plant, its impressive specification encompassed the following extras: tinted glass, Strato front bucket seats, 'SS' door rim pad emblem, recessed windscreen wipers, special performance suspension, Positraction rear axle with 3.31:1 ratio, front disc brakes, 396ci (actually 402ci) 4-barrel carburettor L34 code V8 rated at 350hp / 415lbft, four-speed manual gearbox, dual exhaust, power steering, instrument package, AM push-button radio and special bonnet with Cowl Induction. Stated to have covered just 1,000 miles or so since the completion of an extensive restoration, this iconic mid-size muscle car is offered for sale with UK V5C Registration Document (still in the process of being issued), current MOT certificate and framed copy of its original build sheet.

PLEASE NOTE: The registration document and MOT certificate for this vehicle are currently with the DVLA.
