1968 Chevelle SS

As the American people began demanding more power and speed for their vehicles during the 1960s, Chevrolet responded with the Chevelle Malibu SS. The vehicle marked Chevrolet’s entry into the world of muscle cars as they fought to stay relevant in an ever-changing market (sounds a lot like today, right?). Though the Chevelle itself was produced from 1963-1977, the SS (Super Sport) was only produced through the 1973 model year. The Super Sport option was available for $162.

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.
