Chevrolet Chevelle Overview

The Chevelle was Chevrolet's mid-size car for over a decade. It came in many trims and with many engines. The most well-known of these is the SS 454, which was best known for the LS5 and LS6. This powerful engine achieved well over 400 horsepower and was available in limited numbers.

Many people forget that the Chevelle was available in trims that did not carry the "SS" in their names. Sedans and wagons were popular as well. They were large (as most cars of the era were) and seated adults comfortably.

The SS trims were impressive in how much power their engines achieved under the hood of a front-heavy car. Wheelbases remained large in true '70s style, which made turning an adventure.
