1966 Chevelle Super Sport

There are some 66 Chevelle SS’s that are Top Shelf and there are others……... ABOVE the Top Shelf. Meet Misty...…. she is in one of those Above the Top Shelf cars, what I often refer to as one of the Best of the Best!!

If Misty looks familiar to you, it could be because I found her a home a few years ago with a private collector and she was featured right here on my website. On the other hand., you may have seen her any number of places across the country as she was paraded from one show to another, swallowing up multiple “Best of Show” awards, “Best Restored” awards, “People’s Choice”, Super Chevy accolades and some prestigious AACA 1st Place National Awards which still adorn the front grill. Yes, this car has been seen and it has been judged by many. I know many of the best 66 SS’s but this one I know very well, having shown side by side with her many times. The restoration was done by a well respected 66/67 SS expert who has built and owned some of the best chevelles in the country and he’s been a personal friend of mine for over 20 years.

                                                                THE DETAILS:

Painted in its factory original color scheme of MIST BLUE (code DD) with a not often seen but incredibly cool, factory Black and White Interior (code 737) with 396/360hp engine, M-21 4 speed and loaded with the following factory options:

Bucket Seats  Console  Gauges  Knee Knocker Tach  Power Windows  Power Steering  4 Speed  Rear Window Defroster   360hp Engine   3.31:1 Posi Rear   Simulated Mag Wheel Covers 

Everything on this 66 is done to the highest level of factory correctness and it shows., from it’s bare steel driveshaft with stenciled part number, to the Spiral Shocks and Inspection Markings, to its Gardner Exhaust system and Bias Ply Redline Tires wrapped around factory correct 14 x 6 JK steel wheels. One look at the paint and you know Misty is a 10, but she is not just a pretty face… she is quality top to bottom, inside and out! She don't have curves, no sir.... she has an extremely straight metal body and NOS parts were used throughout the restoration! She has it going on and everything is 110% done! No formal paper documents but as I mentioned this one has been seen and judged across the country....  unaltered TRIM TAG and VIN TAG……there are no surprises here and you can't say that about many cars today.

In summary, a Rotisserie Restored to the highest-level Real Deal 66 SS. One that is by virtue of the amount of national level awards won and all the judging scrutiny it has gone through, it is one of the BEST 1966 Chevelle Super Sports you will find in the country today. There are others for sure, BUT they are not for sale!

That all said, pretty photos, awards, magazine features and descriptions can’t tell you the whole story, cars need to be seen to fully appreciate the quality of the restoration and I have seen this car and I am here to say, it is all that! No red flags, no issues, mechanically top notch and still ready to be shown side by side with the other BEST of the BEST!! She is breathtaking! Drool Rag not included!
