L89!!! EARTH MOVING 2,200 MILE 1969 SS396 L78 L89 CHEVELLE FOUND!!!

Опубликовано: 23 май 2019
This unbelievable 1 of only 400 ever produced with aluminum cylinder heads 1969 SS396 L78 L89 Chevelle was recently discovered in its resting spot of nearly 40 years with only 2,200 miles on the odometer. The car was purchased new in Ohio and then sold to the current owner in 1975. The current owner stored the car in 1981 in its current location and it has never moved. The special Burnished Brown “Root Beer” Chevelle is nearly all original paint and was born with heavy duty Muncie M22 trans and 4.10 positraction.

  • What is the preferred way of removing the dirt build-up on the car? If done incorrectly, could the dirt scratch the original paint?

  • Why would someone keep a car like this in a garage virtually all its life? Cars are meant to be driven, I would have driven the heck out of this of it were mine......

  • That is one bad ass ride..

  • The way this car is set up has Dick Harrell written all over it with the sun tach, Stewart Warner gauges, electric fuel pumps, and Mr. Gasket Cool Can. Does the owner know if maybe this car was tuned at the DHPC or possibly Motion Performance? I see he has the Motion Super Car Club keychain attached to his ignition key. This car definitely doesn't look like a backyard job and appears to be professionally modified.

  • Steering wheel said Malibu....ss chevelles had a steering wheel that said SS not Malibu!.?

  • i have one just like it but I am 20years into a restoration and ran out of money so it sits unfinished some day i hope to get her on the road

  • Built proud in Tonawanda ny!

  • why do people remove the rear seat lol they don't even weigh anything.fronts do.

  • can u verity my chevelle?

  • An old friend of mine had a 69 SS 396 and I think it had a Malibu steering wheel. Didnt have the SS center emblem. His was a light metallic blue. Not having all the bells and whistles was common on those cars. It was more uncommon to have all the bells and whistles. Next time I see him I'm asking about the stearing wheel SS emblem. I have gotten old and wouldnt swear what the emblem on the stearing wheel of the car I drive every day of the week now has. But then again in the mid to late 60,s muscle cars was the most interesting thing a teenage boy thought about. WELL the second most thought of subject. As hot a topic as muscle cars was at that time. Minnie skirts was the greatest fashion statement. Barely covering the world we all wanted to win. Thanks for a rehashing of the memories. The rest of my day is runt now....

  • Your title should be: "How to make a 4 minute video last over 22 minutes."

    • Ronald Simkin your title should be “I need to get a grip and move along.” Sorry not sorry bro real enthusiasts want to see this car circled 2 or 3 times. Thanks for watching,

  • Is it me or is the clutch pedal worn a lot for 2200 miles?

  • Wow my favorite year 1969 and love the color! Would really love to see it washed and cleaned

  • I I say you should have rinsed it off, pulled it out, start her up and let us hear it run, in the very least.

  • I know people who would give up there eye teeth to own this car. A spectacular find, this beast needs to see the light of day again!

    • Brian Cle -eye-teeth, not eyeballs!

    • If you gave your eyes, you'd never be able to drive it or see it's beauty..

  • Sorry but cars are made to be driven!! Not sitting collecting dust. I don't see the point, why not enjoy driving it??

    • Tommy Hunter he probably had something better...

  • My brother in law who owns a wrecker. 20 yrs ago found a barn find Vietnam. Vet. Never came home. His mom sold it to my brother in law for $300. She didnt care what was worth. She wanted someone to redo her sons car. He got it. 67 rs/ss. Flip lights disk brakes. 302dz. With 7 thousand orig miles.

  • 💯😍😍😍😍😍😍

  • Clean n detail it. Put a new gas, oil n filter n put her in a proper garage suppose everyone know she is special.

  • This the build I've been looking for fr. 💯👏🙌👏💞👑🌟🔥🔥🔥

  • Thats something like 30k in 1969 dollars for a badass hotrod from the factory. An average house cost 40k then.

  • Phenomenal. Absolutely amazing. Thank you for posting this. To see an original authentic chevelle is indeed a rarity. That body is so straight. As a chevelle owner I can appreciate the purity of this car. Everything is there minus a couple of tweaks. Thank you again for bringing this very rare beauty to us. When I first started viewing your vids some time back I was skeptical but have come to believe your work is a passionate endeavor.

  • Beautiful. Got laid in that back seat.

  • So do you buy these cars? Or do you just document them?

  • Whats the deal with the trees and building moving in the background in the exterior views 🤔

  • malibu steering wheel ? Who would do that?

  • Look for the paper work under the passenger seat in the springs That is were mine was in my Buick Skylark

  • This doesn't appear to be what you say is a Hurst shifter...it has the factory Muncie "twist" in the lever. Hurst shifters were never produced in that configuration.

  • Is it Cleaned yet ???? Please post video of that beautiful car after a nice bath.

  • Starting with the 1969 model year, ""SS" package was no longer it's own model, but an "add-on" option package instead. Unfortunately, if the original dealer order sheet hasn't been saved, there is no way to prove that it is a genuine "SS396" car and could just as easily be a clone or specially-optioned Malibu.

  • Was watching another video the other day and the guy found his build sheet inside the driver's door. I think he had an early '70s Camaro.

  • This is a dream car for me

  • Let's start that sum bitch up, shall we?

  • Sounds like Michael Caine

  • That is sweet! Worth a 💩ton of money. But, every seal in the car is shot. And it has 3000 miles, 1/4 mile at a time, beating the crap out of it. Still 100k the way it sits

  • after watching this video, i wanna play the need for speed most wanted black edition and drive the orange Camaro ss.

  • Gorgeous looking Chevelle love it !! 😎

  • I can't believe I had one of these and let it get away. Mine was burgundy with black vinyl top and black interior with bench seat. It had optional PS & AC. It was built for a GM line worker and he sold it to me for less than $2,000 so he could order the "70 model. The only thing I was disappointed with was the fact that the rocker studs would get pushed out of the aluminum head due to the solid lifters. We tried exchanging them for screw in rocker studs. When that failed we pinned them in. Then the pins collars started splitting the collars apart so there was no way to save those heads. It's a good thing the above mentioned owner only drove it on Sundays or it would have replacement heads on it by now.

  • Makes me miss my '68 el Camino SS all the more. That was a FUN car.

  • The garage door opens @ 2:39.

  • Killer car! Thanks

  • This was the good days and now I don’t even know what these days are shit ?even today this is my dream car

  • the doc was in the old seat

  • Next video can you say *all right all right*

  • The car is a Malibu with options

    • Especially since starting in 1969, ""SS" package was no longer it's own model, but an "add-on" option package instead. Unfortunately, if the original dealer order sheet hasn't been saved, there is no way to prove that it is a genuine "SS396" car and could just as easily be a clone or specially-optioned Malibu.

  • Matthew Mcconaughey doing this video ...

  • This * feels * very 'fake-barn-findy' to me, might be the weird way the dust looks. Something just stinks about this.

  • Ohio, nothing but hoarders and pedophiles.

  • >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> SHE PRETTY

  • I actually prefer the 69 over the 70. Mainly because the taillights and the front grill and headlights.

  • A beautiful and fine example.

  • Well it's old and brown. I'll give you $500 for it. ;)

  • OK, so we have a $200K car here. Can you get the owner to let you clean it up and get it running? PS. So this kid is smart...was smart; this car could be his retirement fund.

  • Not a original SS. That's why you cant find the build sheet

  • I love the car and appreciate its originality but I had 1 and on the front fenders it said 396 turbo jet did not see that on this car

  • those rims are not original

  • im a Ford guy but a '69 chevelle WOW love it

  • Can someone with some real knowledge give me an idea on what this would sell for at auction? Thnx.

  • My father has a gorgeous matching # SS 65 Chevelle. I love the 65 body too👍🏁

  • Gorgeous chevelle, i prefer the 68/69 front end but 12 sec time slips is quick for a car like this especially then. I love the rare color👍🏁🇺🇸

  • Wonderful! 🤠 #smokefit.us

  • Does this car have 4 wheel disc brakes. It has vette master cylinder and booster.

  • Your full of shit. That guy at 16 could not have gotten a loan for a house let a lone a car. Your fucking lying and your a fucking douchebag for trying to shit everyone. Fuck you.

  • Garage is 5yrs old tops hows it been sitting in it 30+yrs ?

  • This is BULLSHIT!

  • I once owned a 1968 El Camino SS. Yet the dash, glove box, and door trim were plastered with both Chevelle and Malibu signage. ( along with SS ). I cannot remember the steering wheel.

  • dude, you sound just like matthew mcconaughey

  • It's nice to see this important piece of automotive history preserved for future generations. That's why you don't drive them all! This should be put in a museum for people to enjoy. I hope the owner continues to keep this pristine machine in its current condition. Thanks for making this land mark video for the automotive family to enjoy.

  • Whats it worth $150,000?

  • Drag 42 is still open.

  • Build sheet may be on top of the gas tank.

  • I will buy it how much

  • Beautiful car! She needs to be taken out in the sun and driven!

  • Amazing Chevy muscle......great car Patrick ....well done on video presentation thanks for sharing

  • That car is to clean and it's no mice nest in the motor ur lien to make a video dummy

  • I'm glad someone can live the dream..

  • I understand it is not for sale, however, I'm offering $40k.

    • @R Go it was only an opener in the event the owner should change their mind.

    • Dave Johnson I’m offering 41k

  • A beautiful car. A shame it just sits and doesnt get any drive time.

  • It's only been sitting for 12 months

  • So he bought a car and house when he was 16?

  • Another awesome discovery, Patrick! Keep 'em comin'!

  • What's the value of this car?? Awesome

  • If anyone knows where in ohio let me know.

    • @Patrick Glenn Nichols Musclecar Barn Finds that's too bad. Such a cool car deserves to see the road.

    • Matt B sorry the car isn’t for sale and he doesn’t want to be bothered.

  • it's missing the gas pedal LOL

  • Can the owner kindly pull it out wash it at least!Also to kindly have the interior detailed!A cover on it would be appreciated as well....

  • Would they install the heads at the factory - or it was a dealer installed option?

  • I'd like to see the car after it's all cleaned up. She's a beauty in amazing shape

  • 68-69 is definitely my favorite Chevelle SS body style. I particularly like the 69 427 COPO Chevelle's. Just looked like a base model Malibu. No stripes, spoilers, fancy wheels, or SS badges...only what was needed to make the car lighter and faster. My kind of muscle car

  • Not for sale, so he can let it sit there and rot away for 38 more years.

  • Chevy was never my favorite manufacturer but I love all the high compression, high performance muscle cars of that era....regardless of the manufacturer. Mopars we're always my favorite

  • Oh my!😲

  • Now that is proper car design.

  • Dammmmmm.. Why wasn't cleaned behand brother?? That car needs to be somewhere in a museum or driven some.. 2200 miles. Come on brother.

  • Damm Patrick what a ultra rare car! Thanks for sharing!🐟

  • Who cares if this car was "found". It's just going to waste away sitting in a garage like some forgotten purchase. After you leave its going to go back to being forgotten. Obviously the person doesn't care much about it judging by all the dust and the fact it hasn't been driven in over 30 years means the entire drive train would need a complete going over before trying to start it. Sadly another classic car left to waste away.

  • That’s factory dust,

  • 12.4 seconds with the factory 396...super respectable.

  • glad you posted this, i can't remember the number of people over the years that have told me im crazy that these didn't exist, in late 69 i put the same engine in my 63 split window coupe, i don't remember the trans being the m22 though. long story about how and why but the owner of chevelle and i did the change together, i had been watching for one of these to show up since several of the magazines were all amped up about it. this made the corvette absolutely dangerous to drive but more fun than a person deserves. what i didn''t know was it was so rare, the car itself was pretty plain looking, not a super sport, bench seat, no stripes, no alum wheels just caps and beauty rims. the times seem right , my car had stock gears and with narrow rims and 7in m&h racemasters with race tubes and screws to keep them from slipping , it ran consistent low 12s, i have a stack of time slips that vary from 12.17 to 12.23, very consistent and very scary to drive, on the street with stock tires in third gear it could get you sideways quick.

  • Wow, this car has been sitting in that garage since I was born! And this car was born to drag!

  • not for sale, that's sad. whats the owner gong to do let it rot? this car should be cleaned up! crime to let it sit like this
