Welcome to the new 66 SS 396 site! The purpose of this site is to document the restoration of my 1966 Chevelle SS, share information that I have learned on the way. As you will see, a restoration is a sizable investment in time, so I don't advise this unless you are prepared to spend a couple of years working on your car! If you are, then I hope this helps you. For those not inclined to do this much work, you might want to continue reading if for no other reason than to have an understanding of the work that goes into such a job.

    The site is continuously being updated so keep the site watched for updates.
