66 Chevelle Super Sport

39th Ave and Krall Phoenix Arizona

my 66 Chevelle Super Sport with P.J. Waters driving the car at about 3 PM

This car came to me without a motor. Originally it had a 396 cu. in. motor in it. When I
bought it the car was in good shape and had been used as a bracket race car on the
drag strip. I bought a 327 with a truck transmission and installed the motor in the car. The
rear end was 456 geared so the car didnít go very fast. Top speed was probably 60 miles
per hour but it got to top speed real fast. Later on I put a 283 with a power glide 2 speed automatic
transmission and that was a much better combination with the 456 rear end. During the time I had
the car it was stolen and stripped but I got it back. After a year it was rebuilt and back on the road.

The pot metal inserts for the hood were thrown away by me because I didn't think I needed them ????
I will never forgive myself. Little did I know these inserts are impossible to find. I thought they were junk.

Nice, Jeff. I love to see old school hot rods like this. Today, it's all about tubs, tube frames, and all that high-tech stuff. I'd love to build a car like that someday, maybe a '70-'73 Camaro as a Baldwin-Motion replica.
