Chevelle is a mid-sized automobile
produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors in three
generations for the 1964 through 1977 model years. Part of the GM
A-Body platform, the Chevelle was one of Chevrolet's most successful
include coupes, sedans, convertibles and station wagons. Super Sport
versions were produced through the 1973 model year. The Chevelle SS
represented Chevrolet's entry into the muscle car battle.
The Chevelle SS 396 became a regular series of its
own in 1966.(style numbers 817 and 867 that year), was the high
performance version and had its own line of engines and performance
equipment. SS 396 coupes and convertibles used the same Malibu sport
coupe and convertible bodies with reinforced frames and revised front
suspension: higher-rate springs, recalibrated shocks, and thicker front
stabilizer bar but with different exterior trim. They also had simulated
hood scoops, red-stripe tires, and bright trim moldings. The performance
engines available included 396 CID V8s – rated at 325 hp (242 kW),
350 hp (260 kW), and 375 hp (280 kW) respectively (the mid horsepower
396 was rated at 360 hp (270 kW) for 1966 only and 350 hp (260 kW)
thereafter). The SS396 series lasted from 1966 through 1968 before being
relegated to an option package. The 1966 and 1967 model years were the
only 2 years of the 'strut back' 2-door sport coupe with its own style
1966 saw a complete restyle of the Chevelle on the previous frame
that included smooth contours, a broad new grille and bumper treatment,
and curved side windows. Bulging rear fender lines and a "flying
buttress" roofline (tunneled into the "C" pillar) were highlights of the
'66 hardtops, shared with other GM "A" body models. The new body
reflected the "Coke bottle" body shape that became the fad for American
cars in the mid-1960s. A hardtop-styled Sport Sedan joined the Malibu
series. Chevelles continued in 300, 300 Deluxe, and Malibu trim.
Available engines were a 327-cubic-inch V-8 instead of either of the
sixes, or the mid-level option, a 220-horsepower 283-cubic-inch V-8.
Judicious attention to the options list could add a tachometer,
mag-style wheel covers, and sintered-metallic brakes.
The 1967 models got some styling tweaks that resulted in a longer,
more straightforward appearance. Large tail lamps went into a new rear
end with standard backup lights. Otherwise, visible change was modest.
"What you'll see inside," claimed the sales brochure for the 1967
Chevelle, "will probably bring on a severe compulsion to go driving."
Front disc brakes were available on all models, and a new dual master
cylinder brake system incorporated a warning light. An entire host of
new safety equipment became standard, including a collapsible steering
column making the 1967 models safer cars. The SS396 continued as the
only Super Sport model, in both Sport Coupe and Convertible body styles.
The 375-horsepower 396-cubic-inch V-8 officially departed from the
options list however 612 were still built. Buyers selected from no less
than six transmissions: two three-speeds, four-speed, overdrive, and two
automatics. The manual-shift feature of the Turbo Hydra-Matic
transmission was touted in advertising. Options included Superlift air
shock absorbers, Strato-ease headrests, and special instrumentation.
Although Chevy's big news for 1967 was the introduction of the Camaro,
Chevelle offered a more traditional sort of sportiness.
