The Hulk-ish car is also a time capsule, sporting most of the original equipment and features it had on back when it rolled off the assembly lines. Under the big block hood sits a 350ci (5.7-liter) developing 355 hp, sent to the correct Firestone Wide Oval tires in controlled bursts through a 4-speed transmission.
The car has been improved a bit compared to its stock condition, receiving aluminum heads, a forged crank, and updated Hotchkis suspension rocking upper and lower control arms.
The interior, hiding under a white vinyl top, comes in a perfectly contrasting white, features bucket seats and a center console, Rally-style gauges on the dashboard, and an upgraded air conditioning system.
That definition perfectly fits the 1969 SS we have here. It went under the Mecum hammer last week, selling (with no reserve) for $60,500, and we bet one of the main reasons it got there was the Rally Green paint that was abundantly used on its body and factory steel wheels.
