Real SS. Incredible fit and finish. Frame off restored.

Real SS 396 as verified in the vin #. Only 3,145 miles since body off frame restoration. Ilncredible fit and finish.

EXTERIOR: Stunning body and paint. My hat is off to the bodyman that restored this car. It is laser straight and the body gaps are amazing. I followed all the gaps, each is square, tight and flush. Doors click shut with your pinky. Beautiful red metallic paint is laid out like glass. Even the jambs are slick. All the chrome and trim un the front and back is new. Windshield, weatherstrips and fuzzy widow seals are replaced. Has white convertible top with glass window, in excellent condition. Dressed up with polished 15 inch wheels on BFG tires (little beefier in back).

INTERIOR: Very nice inside. The upholstery, door panels and carpet have been replaced. Cushions feel good in the seats. Restored dash- new pad, instrument bezel with chrome trim, gauge cluster with tachometer and a new retro stereo. Glovebox liner and mirror are new. Original SS steering wheel has typical crack at the top. Looking up at the convertible, the frame is clean metal with smooth satin black paint. Has matching white boot.

MOTOR COMPARTMENT: Detailed very nicely. The 396 engine has a nice clean coat of Chevy orange paint, new air cleaner and decals on top. Stock manifolds. The jambs are painted real slick. Inner fenders, bottom of hood, firewall are clean satin black. Has new splash shields stapled in. Very tidy and proper. Correct hoses and clamps, has hood insulation, new fan shroud, spring clamp battery cables, Delco battery topper etc. Brake booster and master, hinges and core support area are detailed. New alternator.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very clean metal with nice coat of gray spatter paint. Has mat, rally wheel spare and jack. Jamb and under trunk lid painted real slick. New weatherstrip.

UNDERSIDE: Body was removed from the frame during restoration. The floors are spotless metal with a smooth semi gloss black finish. Clean inner rockers and lower 1/4s. Chassis is also clean metal painted black. Front end is rebuilt, new shocks. Has sway bar. In back it has boxed control arms, new shocks and springs. Bottom of motor is spotless, has new fuel pump. Turbo 400 automatic, driveshaft is detailed with factory paint markings. New gas tank and dual exhaust with correct tips. Emergency brake cables are hooked up. Exceptionally nice underneath.

138 code is in the vin for SS. Starting in 1969 it was no longer in the vin which makes cloning a 69 or 70 very easy. This and the fact they only made 2,286 SS Convertibles in 68 makes this a very desirable car. Again, I am very impressed with the fit and finish. Gorgeous big block convertible!
