One Owner 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396

1966 Chevelle SS 396

The seller of this Chevelle claims that they purchased it from the original owner and that it’s a numbers matching SS 396 car. They have replaced the tires and shocks and claim that it’s now ready for the next owner to drive while they address the issues as they come up. A rolling restoration makes  a lot of sense if you actually drive your classics. If you don’t, then things probably won’t get fixed. The seller doesn’t mention if this one has been repainted or not, but it looks like it might be a good one. It’s listed here on eBay and is located in Irvington, Alabama.

      Same car.
      Multiple editors… hard for everyone to suss out duplicate submissions?

      Nice car, but the ’69 was better in every respect. I may be biased, LOL!

    Sure looks like the same one. I know one part of the car that’s been painted. That’s the black panel between the taillights. From the factory, that was body color. So many for so long have had that panel painted black so I won’t be surprised if someone wants to argue this point.

      I won’t argue that point at all, but I will say, correct or not it looks BETTER with the back panel black.

    Alert!!! Alert!! Odometer rollback..
    At any rate, this one was a plain Jane SS and probably fast. It needs springs all around and could definitely ride and look better with radials on all 4…
    Worth every penny provided there is no hidden rust or rot.. Pin holes in the trunk us usually a tip off of something bigger in the rot department..
    Great car…

    How can it be one owner if the guy selling it is not the original owner?

    • Rocco Member

      It’s like a Chevy (OK’) used car dealer selling a trade in, advertising it as a one owner.
      The dealer is now the new owner, but hasn’t gone to church, the grocery store, or took the kids to school. The Chevy, Ford, etc. dealers are flippers also. So what’s the difference? They also buy at auctions and raise the price for consumers.

      Just saying.

      As a dealer that sells many one owner cars I must interject. The correct term is 1 registered owner. If the seller is a licensed dealer and not a curbstone flipper then he takes it into inventory but is not required to register it. We drive the cars on dealer plates and can legally sell them as 1 registered owner vehicles.

    So, a one-owner car that has had two owners…???

    • Tom Member

      exactly. that is what I have been saying all along. And Who is on first. Now you got it!

    This car shows up in the related finds at the bottom of the page.

    • Tom Member

      Now that’s funny…

  8. Kevin

    If the person who owns/is selling the car isn’t the original owner, it’s not a 1 owner.

    but…..1966 was the year I like and got the snot scarred out of me…..and it was a buddies brother’s convert !…..jezzz Louise by the cemetery and all….scary 4 speed 396 car….weeee

  12. ccrvtt

    This car in Nassau Blue with the 396/375 and a 4-speed and the slotted wheels was the equivalent of a GTO, or better, back in 1966. I know. I’m that old.

    Only a tri-power 442 was badder, provided you were from Lansing.

    I would take any of the three.

    The SS Chevelles all came with the tail panel painted black from the factory.
