1969 Chevelle Super Sport 396
Purchased in August of 1997 from "Hooked On Classics" in Watertown Minnesota. The body was very straight with
no detectable bondo. The paint was already done but the rest of the car needed some TLC. The interior was about 2/3
done. Front and rear suspension both needed to be rebuilt. The 396 was very tired and the rear end had been replaced with
a 10 bolt non-posi. The wiring harness was a fire waiting to happen. To date, all of theses problems have been addressed.
This has been a fun project and the learning curve wasn't too steep. There are a few things that still require attention but
this one is almost done. This page is still under construction and will be for a while. Most of the Chevelle photos are
not digital and have to be scanned in. This takes time. I will add photos of the engine swap, rear end swap, suspension rebuild
and misc other pics.
About a year and a half ago I had the chance to get a photo of my Chevelle in a new publication. It' called
"Chevelle SS 1964-1972 A Muscle Car Source Book". I'm on the bottom of page 90. There are a couple of new photos on this
page showing the book, the original photo in my front yard and the photo in the book.
