General Motors Strikes Again With Pride
The Chevrolet Chevelle was produced in three generation from 1964 until 1977 and is regarded as a mid size muscle car. However, it has been one of the most successful nameplates of Chevrolet available in coupe, sedan, station wagons and convertible body styles. That’s a lot of choices right there. The Chevelle was to compete with the Ford Fairlane and it had the same 11.5-inch wheelbase as its previously popular 55 Chevy. Throughout the run, the car was introduced in two door hardtop coupes, convertibles, four door sedans, and station wagons.
The 1970s is considered the apex of the muscle car era and with the introduction of the Chevrolet Chevelle it is easy to see why. Two versions were offered of the 454 cu-in V8. The LS5 delivered an impressive 360 horsepower while the LS6 delivered a more powerful 450 hp. Hardly any other muscle car delivered the horsepower of the 1970 SS 454 and it would be suffice to say that that’s what make it’s a well worth American classic!The 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle came out with redesigned features to the interiors as well. It sported a more squared up body and new options included power door locks and wiper controls. When Chevelle's saw the light of day back then and it truly managed to leave behind a lot of its competition for the years that it was produced in. Its sweptback roofline and bulged hood were all part of the design that alerted passersby of the incoming beauty on the road and without doubt, it can be said that it sports special feature both inside out for a car of its time.
