Default 66 Chevelle SS convert.

I got lucky at Mecum and scored this car from my friend Marty Nelson. Canadian built 66 SS 396 convert with GM of Canada paperwork. Optioned just about perfectly and a stunning restoration. 360 hp, 4 speed, knee knocker tach, power windows, wood wheel, headrest seats etc.


Fun seeing the different stuff on a Canada built car. Look at the 1/4 panel emblems, trim tag, parking brake light ahead of the shifter.
Pics don't do the car justice.

Congrats on the score Charlie!! The Canadian versions of the Chevelle and Beaumonts have always stirred my curiosity, fueled by my friends who own them. It's really cool that they call out the engine/trans combo on the cowl tag.

Really nice looking car. I'm also wondering about the wheel covers. Those are '67 and later mag styles. The documentations says P01, no listing of N96. I'm guessing the blue bowtie is a personal touch. Don't get me wrong, I love the mag styles! I have them on my Caprice.

Very nice. Is the silver panel between the tail lights a Canadian thing? Also, not knowing any better, I would have called a 136 car a Malibu, not SS. Also Canadian?
