Chevelle Enthusiasts Unite!
Due to the wonders of the Internet we can now have that kind of connection on an everyday basis by visiting websites that are built around our shared interest in cool cars.
With this in mind we would like to welcome you to the Classic Chevelle Fan blog and we hope that you will return often as we continually add information about one of the most popular Chevrolets of all time.
The Chevy Chevelle became available to the buying public for the first time back in 1964 and it went on to make its mark as one of the most collectible Chevys ever built.
Ford and Chevrolet have always been in constant competition, and when one of the companies recognizes a model that is popular with the public you can bet that the other one will always follow suit with something similar in an effort to gain its share of the market. Along these lines General Motors developed the Chevrolet Chevelle to compete with the Ford Fairlane which was popular at the time.
Chevy went all out, offering the Chevelle in a number of different body styles including four-door sedans and two-door hardtops and convertibles. And of course there was the muscle car: the Chevelle Malibu SS which came with a 300 hp, 327 cubic inch engine. Chevy sold just over 67,000 units of the 1964 Chevelle Malibu SS.
1964 was the beginning, but the car remained in production through the 1977 model year. We will be taking a look at the Chevelle from every angle and we invite you to add comments and join in the conversation as a fellow Chevelle fan!
