The beautiful lines of a '67 Chevelle look even better when they are painted in Marina Blue. That's a blanket statement, but for an extra treat, it also happens that it is the original color that this car was delivered in new. If you are looking for a nice cruiser, something that will turn heads wherever it goes, but with some room for friends or even luggage for a longer trip, then check this car out. It's a good one.
You can see by the way the light reflects off this car that before that pretty Marina Blue paint was sprayed on, the panels were adjusted and the surfaces were properly prepped. Up front a black and chrome grill is flanked by 4 headlights and underlined by a sharp looking wraparound bumper. There is a louvered big block hood showing off a little muscle and a 396 Turbo Jet emblem with crossed racing flags on the fender. Graceful curves flow down the length of the car leading to the Super Sport script that is spelled out on the rear fenders, and the sail panels that define the look of the early Chevelle's so nicely flows smoothly into those bulging rear fenders and also onto the trunk lid. A rectangular panel between the tail-lights is body colored and trimmed with chrome piping. A Chevelle badge sits on the right side and another sharp looking bumper underlines it all.
Open the door and you will find a very nice looking interior. It's black with chrome highlights and is perfect with the blue and chrome of the body. The door panels are simple and clean with horizontal lines cutting across it highlighted by a slash of chrome at the top and a splash of chrome on the armrest. Have a seat in the comfortable bucket seats and reach out for the deep dish, three-spoke black steering wheel which has an SS center button. The dash behind it has a long rectangular speedometer with a trio of Sunpro gauges mounted under the center to keep accurate track of water temp, oil pressure and voltage. Above them are the ventilation controls as well as an FM/Cassette stereo. The center console it dressed out in black and chrome and holds a clock at the front as well as the T-handle shifter for the automatic transmission. The headliner and the carpets are in great shape and tie the look together nicely.
Pop the hood and you will find a tried and true, 350 cubic inch motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. There is a chrome air filter housing feeding clean air to a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock intake manifold. Finned aluminum valve covers are polished up nicely, look great, and act like oil coolers too while the engine iron is all painted the correct Chevy Orange. Stock exhaust manifolds get the spent gasses out and flowing back to a true dual exhaust system. Power flows back through a 3-speed automatic transmission to a 12-bolt rear end sitting on coil springs and located with trailing arms. Control arms and coil springs get the job done at the front and the rubber hits the road through 225/70R15 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires mounted on Rally wheels with polished trim rings and a chrome bowtie center all around.
A classic '67 Chevelle in its original Marina Blue. This one could be yours. Come on down and check it out.
