First introduced in 1964, the Chevelle was a perfect fit to fill the gap for those people who didn't want the small, lightweight Novas or Corvairs, or the full sized vehicles either. An attractive and very cost-efficient car, the Chevelle would eventually blossom into what many people consider the greatest supercar of all time; the 1970 LS-6 SS454 Chevelle. This photo gallery is dedicate to Chevrolet's mid size muscle, the Chevelle\Malibu, as well as the El Camino, the small-pickup version of the Chevelle.
This triple black 1970 LS5 454 Chevelle convertible was nearly impossible to photograph! The black paint is so shiny and mirror-like, I had a hard time getting my camera set on the right exposure. It just refelcted too much light! Beautiful car! Never got a chance to talk to the owner, but they are one very lucky person to own such a jewell.
The Chevelle on the left really caught my attention at a recent 2005 cruise night. Oh sure, there were more powerful big block cars there, but nothing catches my eye quicker than a car with as much attention to detail as this beauty has. A very clean Chevelle indeed. Middle and far center pictures are of a 1969 L-78 that is a real eye catcher as well.
On the left a nice 1968 El Camino, followed by a pair of mid-60s convertibles.
To the left and middle are a couple of nice cars I spotted at Iola, WI.
To the far right, a 1966 Super Sport that's a full frame off restoration to factory original,
right down to the final inspection marks and paint dabs. It's backed by a
396/360hp, M-20 Muncie 4 Speed, and 3.31:1 posi rear. This beauty was recently featured in
the all new Chevelles 2002 calendar as the April Feature car.
Here are a couple of really nice 1969 SS396 Chevelles followed by a vintage El Camino
To the left a nice Butter Yellow 1968 SS396 sport coupe followed by a pair of blue 1969 SS396s
Now here is what is often considered the quintessential American muscle car - a red 1970 LS6 Chevelle. This one was spotted at the Mecum collector car auction in St. Charles, Illinois.
Also making an appearance in St. Charles was this green 1970 LS6, M22 bench seat Chevelle.
These three rather rare Chevelles were also spotted in St. Charles. On the left is a 1969 Yenko SC and in the middle a 1969 L-78 375 horsepower SS396. To the far right is a rather unusual 1969 post sedan ordered with the L-78 375 horsepower variant of the SS396.
