1965 Chevrolet Chevelle Overview

The 1965 Chevelle was the first true muscle car in the model. While the base engine was a 283-ci V8 rated at a respectable 195 horsepower, the Z16 trim featured a 396-ci V8 rated at 375 horsepower.

Other engines included a 283-ci v8 (220 horsepower) and 327-ci V8's, rated at 250, 300, and 350 horsepower. The Z16 remained the fastest of the set, capable of going from 0-60 in just six seconds.

Despite the speed and power behind the car, it drove awkwardly, due to 56% of the weight being over the front wheels.

In addition, the car was a bit of an anomaly: it had a muscle car engine in a sedan-like vehicle built with a convertible frame.
