’64–’65 Chevelle Malibu SS
The Chevrolet Chevelle that we have all come to know and love was first introduced for the 1964 model year. General Motors put a lot of stock in the Chevelle lineup and there were Chevelles offered in many different body styles including a four-door sedan, a two-door coupe, a convertible and even a four-door station wagon.
However, 1964 was a time when the true muscle car era was starting to take shape. So Chevrolet wanted to have a player within the Chevelle line, and to this end they included the Chevelle Malibu SS or super sport package.

The decade of the 1960s was one of the most memorable ones on a number of different levels. There was a great deal of societal change underway with the civil rights movement going forward, and of course much of the nation was polarized over the Vietnam War. Rock and roll music was reaching its full stride and this was the soundtrack that was always present during this interesting period.

GM Muscle: The 1967 Chevelle SS
Muscle cars were all about relatively light weight coupled with a powerful engine, with the emphasis being placed on performance rather than appearance. This is not to say that muscle cars were necessarily difficult on the eyes, but the point was to keep the cars affordable to everyday people without sacrificing performance. As a result, some of the bells and whistles were kept to a minimum.
