As one of the most popular classic cars, the 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle is highly sought-after among car enthusiasts. Both the coupe and convertible versions are popular. The 1967 Chevelle model had a slightly more aggressive look than the previous year’s model because of a reworked bumper. In this post, we’ll take a look at the classic Chevrolet.
Featuring 14 inch wheels and front disk breaks, this car could churn out 340 horsepower at 4,400 rpm. Reaching a top speed of 101 miles per hour, the 1967 Chevelle could go 0-60 in about 13.2 seconds- and that’s just with the smallest engine available, the 230 cubic inch six-cylinder engine. It took around 20 seconds to reach a quarter of a mile. Of course, for those who desired more power and speed, engine upgrade options were available for a price. However, with the desire to keep the Corvette’s popularity up and a distinction between the two cars, General Motors did their best to keep production numbers low of the higher performance Chevelle models.
Both automatic and manual transmissions were available, and the car offered optional power steering and power brakes- now, of course, it’s hard to imagine driving a car without power steering.
Originally, the Chevelle itself had been introduced in 1963 as an answer to the Pontiac GTO, which, like the Chevelle, still holds a great deal of respect on the road and in the garages of classic car lovers across America.
