Take a look at this, Best of CHEVELLES at the DRAG STRIP!!!
For many, the sixties were the best times for the American automobile industry and this is why the cars that have been built in this period are considered the best of the classic American muscle car.
Amongst the best of them surely is the popular Chevrolet Chevelle, a mid-size car that was engineered to compete against the Ford Fairlane which was released by the blue oval company back in 1962.
The Chevrolet Chevelle is a mid-sized automobile that was produced by Chevrolet in three generations for the 1964 through 1978 model years. Part of the General Motors (GM) A-body platform, the Chevelle was one of Chevrolet’s most successful nameplates. Body styles included coupes, sedans, convertibles, and station wagons. The “Super Sport” versions were produced through the 1973 model year, and Lagunas from 1973 through 1976.
After a four-year absence, the El Camino was reintroduced as part of the new Chevelle lineup in 1964.
The A-body Monte Carlo, introduced in 1970, also used a platform that was based heavily on the Chevelle platform, although it was lengthened ahead of the firewall.
The Malibu was the top of the line model through 1972 and completely replaced the Chevelle nameplate starting with the redesigned and downsized 1978 model year.
Introduced in 1963, the car was sold in nearly 340 000 units, proving that Chevy did well when they decided that there is room for one more car between their full-size Chevrolets and the small Chevy II.
Interestingly enough, this car was actually the only all-new automobile in the entire American car industry for the year, something that we cannot even comprehend in today’s standards as each manufacturer produces a vast variety of vehicles.
Over the years Chevy brought us three different generations of the same model, and some of them had truly unique variants, like the famous Yenko Chevelle, a car developed by a racer turned car salesman which had as much as 430 horsepower, in the early seventies.
There is no doubt that the public loved their Chevelles and this is why we have so many of them on the streets and at the track even today, almost sixty years after they first left the assembly line and hit the showrooms.
This is why today we are bringing you something special by the famous YouTube channel named “URBAN HILLBILLY VIDEOS” who has decided that they will collect all the videos that feature a Chevelle in the last 7 years and turn it into a compilation which brings us the best races from the drag strip.
So check out these fast Chevelles and see why people still love them so very much.
