1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 - Muscle Car For Sale (Click Here)


Lemans Blue SS, impeccably finished top and bottom, with a four speed behind the 396—sounds good, doesn’t it? Add in black side stripes, a black vinyl top and a black interior and it just gets better. We get Chevelles in here on a regular basis and they just keep getting nicer: This one continues the trend!

There’s no way to document a true ’69 SS without the build sheet, which unfortunately did not come with the car. For some unknown reason, when GM decided to make the SS a package instead of its own model they dropped any mention of legitimacy from the trim tag and serial number. In other words, Chevy’s most valuable and desirable muscle cars ride solely on their often lost or never included build sheets. What we do have is the original Muncie transmission underneath with the VIN stamped into it, a 12 bolt rear out back and a CE (counter exchange—warranty block) ’69 396 engine with the proper 3931067 cast iron, oval port intake with a Q-jet carb intake and correct exhaust manifolds. Correct hoses route coolant while correct battery cables transfer power from the battery. New chrome valve covers and a new chrome air cleaner sit atop a freshly painted orange motor for a factory fresh look. There are new brake components in here too, and the wiring from the harnesses to the battery cables to the paper tags are proper reproductions. Ink splotches and grease pencil marks are where they are supposed to be, and the gloss black engine bay is too nice to complain about the extra gloss. This is an engine compartment that draws attention!

Pop under the car to view the super nice undercarriage. The floor pans are not only painted Lemans Blue, they’re clear coated! The frame’s a beautiful gloss black. Brake and suspension components such as fuel lines, a new tank, new brake hoses, lines, rotors and drums, all new bushings and steering components are all new. There are inspection marks and stickers on the suspension, axle, transmission, starter, brake disc shields, sway bar and more. A new exhaust with correct reproduction mufflers and new reproduction tips set you back right at 1969. Brand new five spoke Magnum 500 road wheels with brand new with brand new trim rings and center caps, wear brand new Goodyear Polyglas F70x14 tires to finish off an excellent chassis!

The interior is factory fresh with all new seat covers on the bench, new door panels, a new headliner, dash pad, carpet, window cranks, door handles, armrests, visors and mounts, seat belts and trim—this is a top notch interior! Fortunately for collectors you don’t have to go scrounging around swap meets to find iffy interior pieces, but few cars go as far as this one does! There’s a Ken Harrison cassette deck in the dash and the original owner’s manual in the glove box. The gauges and lights all work as they should and the Hurst shifter feels right in your hand.

New liquid blue paint covers the gorgeous body work. We have pictures of the car during restoration showing it was torn completely down before going back to color—this is no quick job! New bumpers shine up the front and rear, a new grille and headlight bezel set are up the front, new reveal, wheel lip and drip rail moldings add sparkle to the sides and balance out the black stripes. All of the chrome from the marker lights to the emblems to the taillights is new. The black vinyl top is the final piece needed to add a ton of class to an already stunning car!

New, even splatter paint over perfect sheet metal describes the trunk. There’s a new trunk mat, a brand new Magnum 500 spare wheel and tire setup and the jack, and it’s all done to an exceptional level. You’ll feel bad about putting your car show chairs in here!

To recap, this is a gorgeous, fanatically detailed car with a date code correct engine and original transmission, proper SS gear from nose to tail and a gorgeous color combination. If you were waiting for an immaculate SS in a very cool color, this is it. If you’re looking for a completely rebuilt, four speed Chevelle, this is it. A #1 car from any distance this car’s a blue chip keeper!
