1969 saw what would be the 2nd and last year of the more streamlined '67-'69 bodies. This example showcases quality paint and body in beautiful Monaco Orange.
The SS hood louvers have been replaced as have the emblems and cowl vent screens.
The Super Sport was an option available on either the Chevelle 300, the Malibu Sport Coupe, or the El Camino in 1969. No longer was it a separate model as in previous years. Only the 396 c.i. engine was available with the SS package in 1969. A very limited number of Chevelles were also ordered with the COPO available 427 engine, but that is a whole other story.
In 1969 the Chevelle lineup now consisted of the 300 Deluxe and Malibu models. The Super Sport option was available on either two door Chevelle.

The front end was recently completely rebuilt with receipts totaling approximately $1,480.
The chrome grille bar across the front was a unique feature to the 1969 SS 396 Chevelle. The headlamp bezels have been replaced. The grille emblem has also been replaced as have the front and rear bumpers.
The body is straight down the sides.

Close inspection of the body will confirm exceptionally straight body panels and quality paint with a few minor flaws showing on close inspection. The car was purchased by its current owner in 2005 and refinished & updated as needed with paperwork to verify.

The blacked out rear tail light trim was an SS feature. The Super Sport option was available at a cost of $347.60 in 1969.

The white vinyl top compliments the aggressive SS features perfectly.
The locking steering column was standard Chevelle equipment in 1969.
The door undersides are in excellent condition.

The upholstery is in excellent condition.
The radiator top shroud is chromed.
Under the hood, recent work includes a chromed 65 amp alternator installed. A chromed master cylinder and power brake booster has been installed. Also a chromed Power Steering pump has been installed. The engine is tuned with AC Spark Plugs, replaced wires and filters, a recent Edelbrock 750 cfm carburetor, and recent ignition coil & HEI ignition system. The starter has been replaced as well.
The firewall, inner fenders, and core support are clean and detailed, original sheetmetal.
Few miles have been logged on this Edelbrock 750 cfm carburetor since its been installed.
The trim tag confirms this to be a Monaco Orange car with White Interior built at the Kansas City plant.
