This 1969 Chevelle SS is one of those cars where you don''t need much of an introduction. I mean, just dig that massive blower sticking out of the hood-what else do you really need to know besides the fact that this car can lay down a world of hurt on just about anything else on the street? OK, so painting it bright red is an invitation for trouble, but they definitely went the extra mile to get it straight and clean before shooting the paint. Apparently someone realized that this car is going to attract A LOT of attention, so it had better look great. It''s all steel, of course, and unaltered to keep with the stock look-in fact, you could go back to a 100% original appearance just by changing out the hood, and with that in mind, this SS is nicely done. Gaps are good, particularly for a car with this much horsepower, and the nose-down attitude gives it a purposeful, high-performance look that suits the Chevelle just fine. SS badges on the nose, fenders, and tail remind onlookers that this one started as something pretty special. Up close, you''ll notice little details like the ornate pinstripe around the hood opening, a power antenna on the rear deck, and good chrome bumpers fore and aft. Inside, the blinding white interior is so new it still smells like the factory. To get everything that clean and bright means new gear, up to and including the carpets, door panels, and headliner. The original dash remains, but the gauge pods are now filled with Auto Meter instruments with white-faced auxiliary gauges under the dash. That''s a factory center console, but it''s been upgraded with a Hurst shifter for the heavy-duty 4L80E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, which is managed by the digital CompuShift controller mounted up high. With it, you can adjust for gear ratios, tire sizes, and alter shift points to get the most out of the car-ain''t technology great? There''s an AM/FM/cassette stereo in the center of the dash, but meh, who cares? The trunk tells the full story, with solid floors and a pair of Drag Radials mounted on a set of chrome wheels and a second battery with charger for weight distribution. The horsepower factory under the hood is a .040 over 1970-vintage 454 Hi-Po with a BDS 8-71 supercharger on top. Built for combat, it features an L88 crank that''s been fully balanced, an Isky camshaft, and a pair of Holley 650 CFM blower carbs. Built to BDS specs just so it could run this blower, it''s docile enough for street duty, runs cool thanks to a BeCool radiator and fans, and happily swills pump gas. The aforementioned overdrive transmission makes the 3.42 gears in the 12-bolt out back a reasonable choice, and it just loafs along at 2200 RPM at 70 MPH. With powdercoated suspension components, heavy-duty traction bars, and a race-grade Flowmaster exhaust system, it''s track-ready, too. On the street it wears chrome Rallys with spinners and 225/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials, with those Drag Radials for the track. Insanely fast and nicely finished, this is a car designed to go fast, but doesn''t sacrifice it''s good looks to do it. If it''s attention you crave, there aren''t many faster ways to get it than this. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
