Craig R’s 1969 Chevelle SS396

Built From The Ground Up

Craig R’s 1969 Chevelle SS396

Craig R. bought his 1969 Chevelle about 26 years ago while he was stationed in Texas during his time in the military.

This 1969 Chevelle has the original number matching 396 engine as well as documentation from the original purchaser hailing from the Maryland area.

After years of driving this beautiful 1969 Chevelle, Craig recently had the engine rebuilt to fit a 454 crank, bored it out .60 and included a modified Lunati Hydraulic Cam. Craig also upgraded the suspension with Hotchkis coilovers up front and rear adjustable upper control arms.

Craig still has the original Muncie in his garage, but the Chevelle presently carries a 5-speed TKO 600 transmission to maximize the power and hold her own against the modern muscle cars out there today.

This car has been a part of Craig’s family throughout his entire military career, traveling with him from base to base except during his time stationed overseas, where it stayed with family stateside.

Ground Up SS396.com would like to thank Craig for his service to our country and his devotion to his beautiful 1969 Chevelle!
