Graveyard September 2014

 
1973 Chevrolet Chevelle SS station wagon
Owned by Lyle Simons
This wagon was found sitting behind a barn in Texas in 2001 and still has not been run as you can see.
One day it will be restored and no longer considered graveyard dead!
 

This is a very rare wagon…1973 was the last time the SS package (option Z15) appeared on a Chevelle. It was only offered on the Malibu two-door coupe and (surprise!) the station wagon (the only year you could get an SS station wagon). The 350 V8 (in 2- or 4-V configuration) was the standard SS engine, but this wagon came with the optional 454, which was rated at 245 net horsepower.

The SS option cost $243, and was sold on 28,647 Chevelles. The 454 option cost another $235, and was only sold on around 2,500 of those cars. SS identification was found on the grille, front fenders, liftgate, steering wheel, and door panels on the interior. The SS package consisted of a blacked-out grille, dual sport mirrors, color-keyed lower body striping, black-rimmed instrument dials, front/rear stabilizer bars, rally wheels, and G70x14 raised letter tires.
Find another one of these some where? Not exactly the best looking car in the world, but very rare! Bear out!
