The Chevrolet Chevelle was a midsize car built by the American car company Chevy between the years of 1964 and 1978. They could be considered one of the most quintessential American muscle cars of their era.
It came in a wide variety of body styles, including a 2-door hardtop, 2-door coupe, 2-door convertible, 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan, 4-door hardtop, 4-door station wagon, 2-door station wagon, and a 2-door coupé utility. First generation Chevelle cars had a wide range of available engines ranging on the small end, from a 194 cu in (3.2 L) Chevrolet I6 all the way up to a 396 cu in (6.5 L) Big-Block V8. Engines on second generation cars ranged from a mere 230 cubic inch (3.8 L) Chevrolet I6 up to a massive 454 cubic inch (7.4 L) Big-Block V8. Available transmissions included a 3-speed manual, 4-speed manual, 2-speed automatic and a 3-speed automatic.
One particular Chevelle of note was the SS 396 Chevelle. It came fitted with a massive 350 horsepower (260 kW) Turbo-Jet 396 V8. A special suspension was needed to contain all that raw power. Stylistically it had a “power dome” hood, black-accented grille and sport wheels. Though a 375 horsepower (280 kW) cowl induction version was sold, but it did not sell as well as the 454. The LS5 454-cubic-inch V8 produced 360 horsepower (270 kW) in standard form and a LS6 produced a claimed 450 gross horsepower.
Chevelles of this era are prized by collectors of classic cars and muscle car enthusiasts. Some are valued for their original parts, while other enthusiasts see it as the perfect platform for a custom resto-mod.
