Default 1969 ss 396 old race car bought it 20 years ago

Bought this car 20 years ago. Got ss 396 emblems all over it. Appears to be old race car. Has got Frenchs starters and alternators painted on the quarter panel. Also says winter hawk 87 by rear marker light.Old roll cage and one bucket seat. Also has 12 bolt with spool,boxed rear control arms and disk brakes with 2 peice rotors. Pretty clean old car except for someone removing some of the metal in attemps to lighten it up. Yea its still sitting in the garage in this conditon waiting its turn.

Mike,

That`s a rare Chevelle. There are only a handful of 300 Deluxe SS396 Coupes out there...the Post Sedan`s are even fewer. I assume any of the original 300 Deluxe interior is long gone?

Please email me a picture of your trim tag and VIN. Glad to help.

Yea the only thind left of the interior when i bought the car was the dash pad the steering column and 1 after market bucket seat. Tried to trace its owners but went back 2 owners to a guy in lapeer michigan and he wont answer the phone or return my calls. I know hes still around ( his voice is on the recorder) but will not return my calls. Gonna have to check the rear end codes.

Was the steering column a three on the tree, an automatic or 4 speed (possibly even a 3 speed)

The steering column is for a manual trans car, also the car has a clutch pedal in it. Car also has dual piston front calipers and an ancient line lock on it with manual brakes and manual steering.

After posting this thread a YSC member ( PostSedan)started asking questions so I started digging around the car after 20 years of it sitting in my garage and not being sure if the car is really a 300 deluxe 2 door hardtop ss 396. What we found!

The cars 12 bolt is coded KF --0529f-- (3:55 posi) Has boxed lower control arms with the braces running from the upper control arms to the frame. The car has 2 peice front rotors in the front an ancient hurst line lock and the master cylinder is coded BA. The car also has the big block steering shaft. The car has all the right ss 396 emblems. The front ss 396 grill does not have the peice of trim the runs down the center that is true to the 300 deluxe cars. The car does have a clutch pedal in it with a floor shift steering column.
I gotta say thanks to Postsedan(Dan)for poking around and gettin me motivated. Thanks Dan

Mike,

Glad to help.....this is what this great hobby of our is all about [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/biggthumpup.gif[/img]

How about posting some pics of all that you found....if you have trouble posting the pics....email them to me...I`ll get them posted for you.

Another cool thing about Mike`s SS396 300 Deluxe Coupe, is it`s a Fremont Built Chevelle and has #752 Black Vinyl Bench Seat Interior.

Mike, I`m a bit bias....but I say you should restore this 1969 Cortez Silver SS396 300 Deluxe first over your Black SS396 Chevelle.

Dan
