Pick of the Day: 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute

American muscle sold in Canada


There’s a hot example of American muscle for sale just north of the border: In line with our Chevelle Day, I felt it appropriate to highlight a big-block with one of the most powerful motors in Chevelle heritage.

The Pick of the Day is a 1972 Chevrolet Chevelle convertible SS tribute listed for sale on by a private seller in Sudbury, Ontario. (Click the link to view the listing)

“Full rotisserie restoration with all components rebuilt or replaced,” the listing states. This second-generation Chevelle ragtop has been remodeled as a tribute to a Super Sport, complete with a big-block 454cid V8 installed under the hood. The seller adds some context to the build and its significance:

“Has 454 big-block from a ’73 Chevelle, engine suffix code TOI24CWB, motor rebuilt .030 over, Turbo 400 transmission,” the listing states. “This is a documented Canadian vehicle; only 298 were imported for sale. Comes with GM documentation.”

Specifically, that documentation includes a certificate from General Motors of Canada that outlines some of the vehicle vitals: The car was produced on September 16, 1971, in Baltimore, Maryland in Orange Flame over White. It was originally sold through Belisle Automobiles Limited in Ottawa, Ontario, and the installed equipment list included a tinted windshield, front disc brakes, a push-button radio, hydraulic steering, power brakes, and more.

For 1972, the final year of the second-gen Chevelle received subtle design changes, including revisions to the marker lights along with concealed windshield wipers. Otherwise, the car was largely a carry-over from 1971. The 1973 model year would later bring a significant rework, and convertible models were discontinued beginning that year. (Making this 1972 model essentially the last of its kind).

Speaking of convertibles, the seller says that the black cloth top on this SS tribute has been replaced. The interior and carpeting are also new. And best of all, the listing adds that this Chevelle has been driven only 250 miles since restoration, and it is mechanically sound enough to drive anywhere.

“Very hard to try and restore a Chevelle these days for this price,” the paragraph concludes. A five-minute walkaround video is provided in the listing, along with a gallery of over 60 photos.

The asking price is $54,900 or best offer, and the amount is in U.S. dollars.
