1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 History The Chevrolet Chevelle was a mid-sized automobile produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors in three generations for the 1964 through 1977 model years. Part of the GM A-Body platform, the Chevelle was one of Chevrolet''s most successful nameplates. Body styles include coupes, sedans, convertibles and station wagons. Super Sport versions were produced through the 1973 model year. The 1968 Chevelle got an all-new distinctly sculpted body with tapered front fenders and a rounded beltline. The car adopted a long-hood/short-deck profile with a high rear-quarter "kick-up". Hardtop coupes featured a semi-fastback, flowing roofline. VIN 138378K206199 This beautiful Chevelle was completely restored by the previous owners friend about 12 years ago. The car was originally a drag car so the miles are low. There was a 700hp engine in it before it was restored. The car came with a 396ci engine from the factory. During restoration they added a 454ci. The car has spent its entire life in Michigan.
