- The incomparable Mike Muller's tribute to a legendary Chevy icon !
Chevrolet's Chevelle debuted 50 years ago and quickly became one of Detroit's most popular models thanks to its handsome design and versatile nature. Family car, utility station wagon, muscle machine—you name it, Chevy's mid-sized A-body fit the bill. In base six-cylinder form, with two doors or four, the Chevelle offered attractive, affordable everyday transport. Did your needs involve moving more than a couple kids around town? Station wagons were available too, as was the long-running El Camino. If you desired more power and prestige, all you had to do was trade that six for a V-8 and upgrade to the trimmed-out Malibu flagship, available with or without a top. And if your goal was to blow off the street-drag competition, you looked to the legendary SS 396, introduced in 1965, or its SS 454 running mate, which followed in 1970.
Sure, the Chevelle badge retired in 1977.
But fans simply refuse to forget....
