Dave Hoptak’s rare 1969 Chevelle SS396

Dave_Hoptak_69_Chevelle SS396

Dave Hoptak’s Fathom Green 1969 Chevelle is one rare SS. See that B pillar? The 2-door sedan body style only available in the Chevelle 300 Deluxe series, and 1969 was the only year you could get the SS396 package on the 300 Deluxe.

Since Dave’s car is essentially the most basic of Chevelles, it’s pretty Spartan inside: black bench seat, rubber mat flooring and a radio delete. But where it counts, it’s got all the right stuff: a numbers-matching L-78 375-HP 396 Turbo-Jet, Muncie M-22 4 Speed and a 4:10 rear. Dave has added a chambered exhaust with original-style rolled steel exhaust tips.

Dave’s Chevelle was a barn find that took seven years to restore, but it was certainly worth it. He says it’s a great car to drive. Only one problem: it’s always thirsty!
