Introduced on September 26th, 1963, the Chevelle would live a short life, only lasting until 1977. During that short run, it was offered in many different body styles, everything from a two-door coupe to a four-door wagon. Just three years after its birth in 1966, the Chevelle was redesigned and the SS model became an instant fan favorite. Only a year later, the SS was redesigned again, with the ’66 body style only lasting for a year-long production; thus, the value of the car gained traction in the collector car community and continues to grow in popularity in the hot rod and custom world.

The 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Pro-Street custom offered here was created for anyone that is looking to hit the dragstrip in a ready-to-go classic body style with modern, up-to-date racing technology. Using a fully restored Chevelle body and a restored stock chassis, this car was turned into a running threat on the track. The outside was given an all new paint job with black racing stripes and chrome finished parts that really give the car that ‘60s theme. A two-speed Powerglide transmission was placed inside, allowing for it to be driven by anyone looking to get into racing, or already experienced in the sport. With a Dana 60 differential, MSD ignition, and MagnaFuel system, the owner of this classic custom can rest assured that only the best parts were used throughout the entire build. The combination of the Weld racing wheels, and Hoosier dragstrip tires allows for a gripping take off and overall smooth ride while flying down the track.

Under the raised hood lurks a 496-cubic-inch stroker engine that was built for racing on the dragstrip. When it is fired up, the pure force and sound created is strong enough to make your heart skip a beat. Accompanying the engine are many up-to-date custom speed parts that increase the power of the car. If the roar of the engine isn’t enough to sell you on the power, the thrill from driving it will certainly push you over the edge.

The cockpit features a custom fabricated roll cage that meets the NHRA standards. The interior has been restored, with the dash wrapped in a carbon fiber vinyl and the door panels finished in a custom black and green felt. The upgraded racing seat and G-Force Pro Series harness also meet the NHRA standards. Inside, you will find many up-to-date features like a Mega 200 digital delay, Hurst shifter stick, and gauges all across the dash. Fully functioning and ready to race, the new owner of this build will be able to enjoy this Chevelle immediately on the track or on the show circuit.
