1966 Chevrolet Chevelle
Super Sport SS-396

Model Year History Overview:

In 1966 Chevrolet’s top-of-the-line model was called the Caprice.  Next in Chevrolet’s size hierarchy was the intermediate Chevelle, introduced in 1964 to compete with Ford’s Fairlane.  The Chevelle was conventional:  front engine, rear drive, coil springs in front, leaf springs in the rear.  It provided almost as much interior room as the Impala, but had more sensibly sized exterior.  In effect, it was a revival of the ideally proportioned, middle-wheelbase “Classic” Chevrolet of 1955-57.  Sales went nowhere but up, from 328,400 units in its first year to nearly 440,000 by 1969.  The addition of numerous performance options and its own Super Sport variations it greatly enhanced Chevelle’s appeal.

Because it is equipped with a Borg-Warner M-13 RPO Heavy Duty 3-speed manual transmission it is considered to be a rare car.  Most 1966 Chevelle’s were built with the optional Muncie 4-speed transmission.
