Pros: its a chevelle, 307 gets some gas mileage, automatic good for when u just wanna cruise, has that muscle car sound

Cons: non-powered drum brakes are a thing to get used to
be nice if it was a 396 SS or a 300 Deluxe

Timeless — Used this car on my wedding day, then 35 years LATER we used this same car for our daughters wedding day ,thats what they wanted ,a special day for all. Each time I drive my chevelle it's like going back in time, gress it keeping me young. I purchased this chevelle ss from a used car lot in 1974 ,payed 2,100 dollars for it, was driving by in my 1962 2 door nova witch had a small block in it. first thing that caught my eye was that color ,

Pros: Nice clean chevelle, about 350 +HP.gets lots of thumbs up each time it out on the road

Cons: Not a good highway car with the 410 rear gear

Sexy, Fun, And Classic! —

This is a 1969 Chevelle 300 Deluxe 4-Door Sedan with what is likely a Turbothrift 230 Inline-6 engine producing 140 horsepower from the factory. Despite the lack of having a competitive engine, the inline-6 can still make this 4000 pound all steel car hop around, and it can even surprise those who work on high-performance cars all day... but only when there is about a quarter-tank of gas (lowering the weight the engine has to push around). While crowds may not form around the car at shows, it is quite the rarity these days. There were only 74,902 Chevelle 4-Door sedans made in 1969; 9,399 of those were the 300 Deluxe with an Inline-6 engine. Exact numbers cannot be told, but with the car as old as it is, only time knows how many of these still exist, and of those, how many can actually still run. Despite being one of the best things your grandma could buy in 1969, getting about 18 Mpg in town and about 21 Mpg on the highway, it still has some of the sleekest and most appealing lines of any car from the muscle-car era. Though it is still a 4-door, the car's length is no longer than a coupe, but it does ride on a special frame only used with the 4-door model. Combine those lines with the gold-flake emerald green paint on the body that glimmers in the sun, it always leaves the ladies with responses like "it's pretty" or "it's sparkly." Neither the engine bay, nor the interior are in pristine condition. The engine bay looks almost bare with the I6 in it, and it is clear that there is a lot of work that needs to be done, with none of the original orange paint left on the engine itself. The interior is in a much better condition, with a few cracks here and there and a few screws missing, leaving the dashboard to shake and rattle at highway speeds. Though this is a good-ol' American car, and engine maintenance is fair, it is certainly harder to find parts for the I6 engine than it would be a V8, and it is extremely hard to find replacement pieces for middle, 4-door section of the car. This car is in essence, a road yacht. The weak springs the car has that could easily have come from a toy, cause the car to rock and sway in the wind. When ignoring traffic laws and putting the petal down across a mile from one stop-sign to another, this car feels like it is about to take off as the front end lifts and the hood and dash shake with you as though you are in a speed-boat. Although in that mile it is impossibly hard to get past 95 Mph while still giving yourself enough stopping distance for the drum brakes the car has, the oldness of the car makes you feel like you are going much faster than you actually are. Even on the highway in situations where there could be a need for speed the car still has some impressive "get-up" when going from 60-90 Mph. The car really can't go much faster than that, but I don't know why you would want to, as even going 80 Mph with the wind blowing hard makes you feel like death is impending on you. Despite this Chevy's quirks, I will always take pride in its beauty and uniqueness. It would be hard to imagine a car that would be more fun and one that I would have preferred owning and driving throughout high-school as my every-day car. While this gear-head may have some qualms about how original he wants to keep this 1969 Chevelle 300 Deluxe 4-Door Sedan, a definite Resto-Mod is in-store for this project car somewhere down the line.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Both quirky and unique, this car is outstandingly attractive, and just as fun to drive.
Even though the car only came with the most basic package that was offered at the time, it feels like it has everything it needs, even though this project will eventually be turned into a "Resto-Mod".

Cons: The age of the car and its uniqueness makes finding parts for the car hard and sometimes expensive. The fact that the car is all original means that the old engine tends to ask for maintenance somewhat often.

Bought mine in 1990 after leaving the Army. Paid $3000, It was red with a black interior. It was a Malibu with bucket seats, SS hood and it had the 307 with a powerglide. I loved it! It was originally that light green and green interior. Of course I would have loved to been in the position to have bought an SS, but hey, for a 22 yr. old straight out of the service I was more than happy with her! My G.F. let her 15 yr. old brother drive it around the block in 1993. He turned the corner, stomped the gas instead of the brake then drove over the sidewalk, completely through an empty lot, across an alley, then into someones living room.....HEARTBREAKING! One of these days I want another one!! Preferably Black or blue and of course a SS! When my dad was young he had a 68 SS..In 1970 he got a 69 GTO Judge in carousel red. I wasnt old enough to remember but the pictures were always great to look at! With 2 boys to raise he spent the next 30+ years in more family oriented vehicles. He recently bought a 94 Vette, red/red with a set of chrome touque thrust rims and a sweet sounding set or magna flows..You go dad!!

This car is a gem. Its an absolute tank compared to every other car Ive owned made in the 80s and beyond. I know fuel economy is why things are made so cheaply now but theres something to be said about my old Chevelle Malibu ❤
