The 66 SS396 chevelle was ordered in the fall of 65 as a 396/360 4 speed prior to the release of the 375 HP motor. The 427/425 was ordered through Rydells and installed in the service dept. They even added the 66 full size 427 cross flag fender emblems. The car was white with red buckets.

Thanks for the update on the L72 powered '66!.
Cool car either way but do you know if Rydell's service dept did the transplant before the car was delivered new to the customer or did he take delivery w/ the L34 and return for the engine swap?.

The swap was after delivery, but not very long as I remember the details.The original L-34 motor is something I have no memory of at all as to what was done with it after the swap. Auran Chevrolet (Jim Ryan) in Minot ND had a customer (Darrel Hadberg) that did the same swap with a madera maroon 66 SS396 chevelle. The car was lettered with the dealership on the doors and raced in 1966-7.

Bigsixman, I think his name was Darrel Elberg not Darrel Hadberg. He was an employee of Auran Chevrolet. He had a lot of hi performance cars!!! He loved Chevelles. He also had ordered a L78 Nova SS and many more L78's. Thx&amp;#128512;

Outlaw68Nova, It very well may have been Elberg, the memory goes pretty foggy after 50 years. The Minot area was a good car town because of the Minot AFB and those young airmen liked nice cars.

Is Darrel still around the Minot area? He should be a wealth of information regarding the 60s Chevrolet muscle cars. My friend has one or more pictures of the lettered up 66 chevelle that he raced back when new.
