Hey guys! Just picked up a 66 chevelle ss! Can't wait to get started on it. I've tried doing some research on what features are rare etc. I was decoding the body trim tag and it's a black bucket seat imitation leather car with a two speed potatoe glide and a center console in mareida maroon. I purchased a 396 out of a 66 impala as well as a 4 speed Muncie to put in the car. I'm Just curious if these options are common because I was unaware that ss cars even came with the power glides(slides)! Thanks!

Sounds just like mine, except the color and you did well there. Always liked maroon. Mine could have been a 360hp SS as it has the correct radiator for it, but I'll never know, and it was originally a power glide car with the console. Enjoy the project and post up some pics, we all love them.

don't have a 66 but my 67 came with a 396/325 powerglide, a/c and 3.55 rear gears... guess you could "burger king" these cars back then.
now a days a 496/607 and a 700r4 with 3.42 gears are in it. guess I "burger kinged" it myself !! Enjoy !!
