The 66 SS 396 Chevelle: 1986

The 1966 Chevelle SS 396 was purchased in December, 1986 in Holly Ridge, North Carolina. I have traced the car back to the second owner of the car and spoke with several pervious owners of the car, all of which had some very interesting stories to tell about the car. The car was purchased new in Virginia and is a “no frills” SS car with a 325 HP Turbo-Jet 396 and a 4 Speed.

The car was manufactured February 22 in Atlanta Georgia. The original paint color is Marina Blue (Paint Code F). Interior is Black with a Vinyl Bench seat. (Trim code TR- 761-A) The car had been repainted red and the interior had been changed sometime during it’s life.
