Chevrolet obviously did a lot right in 1968. Almost everything the company produced that year has achieved a wide following that seems to transcend several generations. Among that line-up, the '68 Chevelle claims one of the largest enthusiast followings. That's why cars like this impressive Tripoli Turquoise Super Sport never stick around our showroom for very long. The beneficiary of a body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration, this fully documented A-body wraps an original L35/4-speed drivetrain in retro 2-stage that's guaranteed to stand out in the sea of Cranberry Red Chevys. So, if you love a nice, factory-spec car, but favor aesthetics that command attention, enjoy the best of both worlds by grabbing this awesome Chevelle!

CLASSIC GOOD LOOKS

Hailing from the General's stalwart Kansas City manufacturing facility, presently known as Fairfax Assembly, this stunning Super Sport is the beneficiary of a detailed, body-off restoration that was completed in late 2013. That careful rebuild was layered in correct Tripoli Turquoise base, sealed in glossy clear and accented with tasteful pinstripes. And today, mere weekend miles out of its roof-to-rocker makeover, this top dog coupe sits as one spectacular piece of iconic American muscle that's polished, unique and very appealing!

For 1968, the freshly updated Chevelle sported a brand new look that featured tapered fenders, a rounded beltline and a classic long hood/short deck profile. At the front of the car, a broad, SS-exclusive grille centers a prominent “SS396” emblem between correct T3s, a bright “Chevelle” script and a factory-fresh bumper that's fitted with amber parking lamps. Behind that grille, an SS-exclusive hood props finned louvers in front of pristine glass, a correct vinyl roof and straight stainless frames. Below that hood, traditional door handles perfectly complement a correct chrome mirror, dent-free rocker trim and classy, “396” branded marker lamps. And at the back of the car, an SS-exclusive valance centers a prominent “SS396” emblem between small taillights, a second chrome bumper and clear reverse lamps.

BIG BLOCK POWER

Toss the hood and you'll find an original L35 big block that wears a correct 3935440 casting number behind a correct ED assembly stamp and a matching 223920 partial VIN. Oxygen and fuel enter the hot mill's combustion chambers through a polished and decaled air cleaner, stainless fluid lines and a spry Quadrajet carburetor. Below that carb, a sea of brilliant Chevy Orange paint covers the block from its cast intake all the way to its stamped oil pan. At the back of that intake, a reliable points distributor shoots spark through eight Packard TV R Suppression cables. Below those cables, chrome valve covers perfectly contrast professionally restored exhaust manifolds. In front of those covers, fresh V-belts spin a rebuilt alternator and factory power steering next to a correct smog pump. At the front of that pump, a reproduction Delco battery complements a correctly decaled radiator. Those components are, in traditional fashion, seated in a slick, Satin Black frame. And the whole setup presents exceptionally well, from its insulated hood all the way to its mechanical fuel pump.

NO BOLT LEFT UNTURNED

Under this impressive A-Body you'll find a fully sorted chassis and solid floorpans that, like the car's glossy exterior panels and lust worthy engine, have been restored to very high standards. At the center of those floors, a correct Muncie 4-speed slings power to a correctly stamped 12-bolt that's finished with correct 3.31 gears. Holding that stellar drivetrain in place is a fully rebuilt suspension that mixes lucid power steering with proven drum brakes. Exhaust flows through aluminized pipes to brash turbo mufflers. And power meets the pavement through attractive Rally Wheels, which twist F70-14 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sports around stainless trim rings and turbine center caps.

PROPER CONTRAST

Open this second generation Chevelle's solid doors and you'll find a correct Parchment interior. That restored cockpit is centered on fresh bench seats. At the front of those thrones, a crack-free dash hangs rebuilt telemetry over small Sunpro accessory gauges and a correct Delco pushbutton radio. At the base of that dash, fade-free carpet floats monochromatic mats around a traditional Hurst shifter. At the sides of that carpet, stainless-trimmed door panels add a little visual pop. The driver turns a correct Super Sport steering wheel. And the passengers fill a fully restored trunk that wraps a full-size spare tire in a correct jack, a fresh mat and correct decklid decals.
