1969 Chevelle SS396
Dull, dirty and drab, with a combination of faded silver and gray primer paint, this 1969 Chevelle SS396 almost goes unnoticed in a parking lot. But on close inspection, this is a straight, solid, and totally stock original muscle car. Spotted in a high school parking lot in Pleasanton, California, it is unmodified, with the original AM radio, bench seat, and correct 14” wheels. This appears to be a daily driver, with no attempt at keeping it clean, much less restored. I like it. A real muscle car used like a car, not a garage queen. Of the over 86,000 SS optioned 1969 Chevelles sold, not many are left with such a unmolested patina like this one.
