1969 Chevy Chevelle SS 396: A Collector Car You Can Daily Drive

  1969 Chevy Chevelle SS 396: A Collector Car You Can Daily Drive This car doesn't just have to sit in your garage! In many ways, certain cars can perfectly define a generation. For the 1960’s it didn't get more iconic than the Chevelle SS. A large displacement engine, simple but accommodating interior, and sporty style is what made the muscle car era and Chevy’s arguably most successful nameplate had it all. © Provided by Motorious Although the purist might disagree, one of the coolest features to come out of this part of automotive history was that the cars were highly customizable.

When it comes to classic cars, there are two main kinds of enthusiasts. One that likes an all original rarity and another that can appreciate a car for its individual characteristics.

Whether or not you are an Oldsmobile fan or not there is not denying the impact that the brand made on the muscle car era. The 442 was a beast of a car that could absolutely hold its own against the Chevelles and GTOs of the time. However performance peaked in the early 1970s and the 1970 model year would go down in history as one of the most capable years for the 442.

While it would be nice to come across an original 1970s 442 to add to a collection, the point of the car was not its name but more so what it could do, which was a lot at the time. Although, not so much today as modern advancements have overshadowed this classic with a large-displacement engine and semi luxurious interior. Still, it's hard to beat the muscle car style that the 442 brings to the table and that seems to be the motivation behind this 1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 clone.

While this is not a show car as it features too many imperfections for that, you’d be hard pressed to find a better driver’s car. This classic Olds look-alike features all the classic style of the 442 mixed with some modern amenities and high-performance upgrades. Kicking off the restomod treatment is an interior pulled from a modern vehicle and some aftermarket gauges in the center of the dash. Under the hood is a V8 engine with an aftermarket camshaft and a new starter mounted to an automatic transmission. While this is not an all original show car, free of rust with perfect paint, it does have that classic muscle car style and some modern features that make it a good driving car. For what it’s worth the rust is minimal, most of the body is solid, and the odometer only reads 42,000-miles.

Tested: 2021 BMW M4 Delivers What Matters .
Do whatever it takes to ignore the new BMW M4's toothy grille and just drive it. Apparently, there's something about having a highly anticipated BMW M car that alters the atmosphere in Los Angeles. Months of blue skies and shorts weather ended as soon as our M4 test car arrived. Of course, correlation does not imply causation, but we're superstitious. A few years ago, a new M2 brought a massive storm during a multiyear drought, and now the M4 brings rain? You'd be a little'stitious too.
