The Chevrolet Chevelle is not called the American classic muscle car for nothing. Introduced in 1964, this model enjoyed an impressive market reception, which was also responsible for the Chevelle\'s success across three generations. This model competed with the star models from Ford and Plymouth, but it held its ground excellently, churning out good points that helped make it stand out from the crowd. The glory days of the Chevrolet Chevelle, however, ended when the American automaker decided to drop the line, making the 1977 model year the last Chevelle to have graced the market.
Chevrolet\'s bid to make a statement in the automotive world was further established with the launch of the Chevelle. The first-ever model saw action in 1964, and was slated to grab its right share of the market from Plymouth Belvedre and Ford Fairlane. The first-generation models of the Chevrolet Chevelle were in production from 1963 to 1967, and these included a combination of a two-door and four-door hardtop, coupe, convertible, sedan, and station wagon. These models were paired with either an I6 or a V8 engine that both came in various specification. When it comes to the transmission, owners had the option to choose among a two-speed automatic, as well as a three-speed and a four-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
The Chevelle also came with the Super Sport package, which later became known as the Chevelle SS. A set of upgraded features became the highlight of this package, with a big-block engine adding more appeal to the 1965 model year.
By 1968, the streets welcomed a redesigned Chevrolet Chevellesome would even regard the new body worthy to be called modern. The second-generation models of the Chevelle saw the 1972 model year as the last before Chevrolet went to introduce the next batch of the same model. It was in 1970, however, when the Chevelle SS was improved with the addition of the LS6 option. This enabled the SS to feature upgraded specs that gave it more power. This upgrade, however, came with a rather high price.
Despite the changes in design, the Chevrolet Chevelle still came with a hardtop, a coupe, a convertible, a sedan, and a station wagon. The only addition to its body style was the coupe utility. In terms of the engine, there were more types to choose from. Also noticeable was the variety of small-block and big-block V8 engines that could be paired with a manual or automatic transmission.
The third-generation offerings were met with challenges, but Chevorlet did not falter in featuring significant improvements that pushed the Chevelle to the next level. Marking this model\'s 10th year on the market, the American car manufacturer gave it an overhaul: new body frame, improved suspension system, wider wheel rims, and large rear axles, among others.
Similarly, the trim levels were modified and equipped with better hardware and technology. It was also in this generation when a Chevelle station wagon became available for a Super Sport trim. The 1973 to 1977 model years, however, were the last few that bore the Chevrolet Chevelle nameplate.
