From the American Muscle Series finished in 1/18th scale!!

1965 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 Z16



For 1965, someone at Chevy had the crazy idea to cram a 396 cu. in. Mark IV V8 engine into a mid-size Chevelle, and highly publicize it to get the Chevy brand on the muscle car map. The result was the Z-16, which denoted the option code used on the build sheet. Chevy had indeed created a monster! It was labeled their best, complete, and well-rounded muscle car of that time.

The Z-16 was far more than just a special engine upgrade. This 4-speed included a narrowed rear axle from the full-size Impala, heavy-duty power brakes, heavy-duty suspension, virtually all luxury options, a 160 mph speedometer, plus many more upgrades. Only 201 Z-16 Chevelles were made in 1965 making it one of the most sought-after collector cars on the market. Out of the 201 that were built, only 72 are known to exist today.

Auto World is proud to replicate this stunning Regal Red Z-16 with a red interior as shown at the 2017 MCACN. It’s a great addition to your Chevy die-cast collection.
