Restoration - Car History 1987
The 1966 Chevelle SS 396 was purchased in December, 1986 in Holly Ridge, North Carolina. I have traced the car back to the second owner of the car and spoke with several pervious owners of the car. The car was purchased new in Virginia and is a “no frills” SS car with a 325 HP Turbo-Jet 396 and a 4 Speed. The car had changed owners several times during its life and ultimately the original big block had been replaced.
