Lemonwood Yellow With Numbers Matching
If you have been reading Cars On Line’s new series of articles on “How To Buy A Car Online” you may have noticed how these articles go in depth into the fine details of buying a collector car through the internet. In fact, some of the articles get into how to find original numbers and what they mean. (Here is a link to the “How To Buy A Car Online” series .) Today a Chevelle collector from Pennsylvania posted his 1966 Chevelle SS 396 for sale. We were impressed by how his ad was really a primer on how to buy a 1966 or 1967 Chevelle Super Sport. Maybe we should ad his webpage to our series.
Mike Crown is a 1966-1967 Chevelle SS fanatic. The Chevelle Super Sports from these years are his passion. When you go to his www.mysterychevelle.com webpage there is a ton of interesting information about 1966 and 1967 Chevelles. The 1966 Chevelle SS pictured here is owned by a friend of Mike’s. Mike says he knows the entire history on the car so there is actually “no mystery” here (pun intended.)
With 1966 and 1967 Chevelles you can be assured that if there is a “138” in the VIN number it is a Super Sport. Mike says this one has an original “numbers matching drivetrain with the 396/325 hp “born with” engine; original “born with” M-20 Muncie 4-speed transmission; and original “born with” 12-bolt 3.31.1 rear end. He says it now shows just 41k miles.
You would think by looking at the photos that the car has been restored, but Mike says not. It was recently repainted with the original YY code Lemonwood yellow paint and highly detailed. The undercarriage is amazing. Mike tells us that the interior, which looks too nice to be original, actually is. He goes over the car in such detail on the ad page that you get a sense of confidence in the collectibility of this Chevelle Super Sport.
This car has been SOLD.
When collecting cars there is a high premium on totally original, untouched and unrestored cars. This is one you might want to consider.
