In 1967, a man bought this car for his daughter's 16th birthday and special ordered it with power bench seat, automatic and air. For her coming graduation, he gave her a Corvette. His brother had a car lot where I lived and the car (Chevelle) ended up there to be sold in 1969. The car had 17,000 miles on it. I was just turned 18 years old and had been driving dad's old '4-door '62 Ford Galaxy. I talked him into helping me get the Chevelle and traded the Galaxy on it (gave it away). As I did be a teenage boy, I did drive too fast and did get it taken away. My sister and dad drove it several years and I got it back right after graduation. In 1981, I sold it right before getting married. It was factory original, no rust, new arm rests front and rear added and factory original bumper guards added. Keystone Klassic wheels. The 396 came original with the Rochester Spread bore 4-bbl. I had put the Holley version Spread bore on it and had the original Carb and hub caps in the trunk. When sold, it had never been wrecked, no rust, paint shinned and vinyl top looked brand new, too. PERFECT inside and out. 80,000 miles on original engine and had never been touched besides regular maintenance done. 8 months after being sold, it was stripped down, bucket seats, 4-speed added and painted red with vinyl top removed.
Automatic with 396 4-bbl 325 hp.
Special order Power Bench seat and Air.
