Sold for $ 91,300
The Chevelle was built in the GM plant in Baltimore, Maryland and runs with the desirable 454-cid, 360-hp V-8 LS5 engine that has a four-barrel carburetor and is mated to a Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission. The exhaust is a dual system with 2.5-inch diameter pipes from front-to-rear. The Chevelle carries its correct drivetrain with matching numbers.
Among the many features that are found on this car is factory air conditioning; uncommonly seen on convertibles of this era. Additionally there is a Cowl Induction hood, hood lock-pins, tinted glass, AM radio, performance suspension, bucket seats, center console, power convertible top and power brakes. SS wheels, dual center stripes and SS badging all contribute to the muscle aspect of this exciting car. Climate-controlled storage is another solid positive for this desirable machine.
