Classic Chevelle History
The Chevrolet Chevelle is a mid-sized automobile which was produced by Chevrolet in three generations for the 1964 through 1978 model years. Part of the General Motors (GM) A-Body platform, the Chevelle was one of Chevrolet's most successful nameplates. Chevelles were made available in coupes, sedans, station wagons, and convertibles. The SS (Super Sport) was produced through 1973 model year, and represented Chevrolet in the fight for the great American Muscle Car. The Lagunas were produced from 1973 through 1976, and the El Camino was released a few years later. With the classic Chevelle for sale, Chevrolet answered Ford's Fairlane and Plymouth Belvedere, and was a return to the size and concept of popular models from 1955-57 Chevy. The Chevelle’s 115-inch (2,900 mm) wheelbase was the same as that of the 1955-57 Chevy. Chevrolet succeeded in their attempt to leave their mark on the American Muscle car.
By mid 1964, Chevy already swapped out it’s top engine from a 220 horsepower 283cid to a 327 that made 300 horsepower instead. With that, GM had made a power move in an effort to fit into the performance niche. In the ‘65 model, Chevy raised the bar again giving the Chevelle a boost to a 350hp L79 engine for the Super Sport (SS) trim model. This was one of the key components that marked the beginning of the muscle car era.
