Default Black L78 1969 SS396 300 Deluxe Post Sedan Found

Wow! What a crazy car week this has been. While telling Rick Pauley (RixLS6) how to find a certain 1969 SS396 300 Deluxe Post Sedan for sale.....Rick stumbles on something even better!

I said.... "What could possibly be better?" Rick, says "I found a Real Black SS396 Post Sedan and its an L78 car" In the mean time my phone is ringing off the hook as others are finding out about this car....Fire Spreading Fast.

As I type this, Rick Pauley and Jim Hanke are driving back home with this real Black L78 1969 SS396 300 Deluxe Post Sedan Chevelle on the trailer.

Look for more pictures....and the complete story from Rick in a few days.

Special Thanks go out to Jim Hanke for driving Rick and picking up this Special Chevelle.

Congrats to Rick Pauley (RixLS6) on purchasing his third 1969 Post Sedan and his second SS396 300 Deluxe Post Sedan Chevelle.

Pics.....Obviously a drag car most all it`s life. What a shame for someone to cut open a real SS Hood.

Dan,
Im pissed off and happy all at the same time. Being this car was for sale 10 minutes from my house and I never went and looked at it. Im pissed its not in my garage but happy its in someones hands that will completely restore it correctly.. Im definitely looking forward to more pics. Whats the chances that the build sheet is behind the original door panels.

Never, say never....but highly doubtful.

Dan,
Was just thinking is there a factory tach in this car!

Nice find.

10-10, black goes so nicely with black.

I`ll let Rick answer all the questions..... I do not wish to take away his thunder and enthusiasm.

Just got home with the new addition.
If Dan hadn't told me to look at the Detoit Craigslist, I wouldn't have known about this car.
I'll post what pics I took after we first got there and then put her on a trailer.
She's had a harsh drag car life, but what a cool find. It's had at least 4 different colors on it, Black, Yellow, Red, and now blue.
I'll be putting it in my shop tomorrow morning as it's too hard to maneuver my driveway when it's dark out.
