The Chevrolet Chevelle Ss has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you'd be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well. Additional new features for the.
In and a two-door station wagon was available in the bottom-line Chevelle series. From until two-door hardtop coupes and convertibles were produced while four-door sedans and four-door wagons were offered throughout the entire run. The two-door hardtops were called Sport coupes, much like other Chevrolet series.
The El Camino lasted longer that its passenger car counterpart and continued to be produced until Chevrolet's entry into the muscle car battle was heralded by the Chevelle SS.
From until the Chevelle's had a Malibu SS badge on the rear quarter panel and after the Malibu SS badging disappeared except for those sold in Canada. In the Chevelle SS became a regular series of its own, dubbed the SS and was a higher performance version and had its own line of engines and performance equipment.
The available performance engines included CID V8s which were rated atand hp respectively for only and hp. The SS series only lasted three year from until before is was relegated to an option status, much like a radio or AC. Nearly all of the good extras of the SS could be ordered on the '66 and '67 El Camino but unfortunately the SS series El Camino wasn't available until the model year.
All regular production Z16 Chevelles were produced at the Kansas City plant, while two prototype Z16 Chevelles were built at the Baltimore plant. The Z option came with a convertible boxed frame, a narrowed rear axle and brake assemblies from the Impala, heavy-duty suspension and pretty much all of the regular Chevelle comforts and convenience options.
The Z16 came with the standard big-block Turbo-Jet V8 which came only with the Muncie wide-ratio four-speed manual transmission. The back end of the Z featured a unique black and chrome trim panel that framed untrimmed Chevelle style taillights. To appeal to Chevelle enthusiasts craving a high-performance mid-sized car, all Chevelle models in were available with a horsepower cubic-inch V8. In all and models besides the SS this engine was also offered at a downrated form at hp.
This engine was also available in downrated form at brought with it a major restyle of the Chevelle on the old frame. Their new design reflected the 'Coke bottle' body shape with bulging rear fender lines and a 'flying buttress' roofline were highlights of the '66 hardtops, shared with other GM 'A' body models.
Only the Super Sport was available while the SS became a separate model. Produced as a regular production model, several were sold. The body was updated the following year, but a whole new variety of safety equipment became standard this year, which made this year's car a much safer vehicle to be in, in case of a collision.
When came, so did a new model that even further emphasized the 'Coke bottle' look even more. A semi-fastback roofline for hardtop coupes became extremely popular. After December 1, new Federal safety-mandated equipment included side marker lights on each fender, along with shoulder belts for outboard front seat occupants on cars built from this date onward.
All models had anchors for the belts. Adding complexity under the hood, manual transmission cars received GM's 'Air Injection Reactor' smog pump. The SS series was dropped for the model year, and the Super Sport became a performance option.
All Chevelles received an all new locking steering column; a year ahead of the Federal requirement. After January 1,headrests were required for all cars sold in the U.
The SS option was limited to the Malibu series in Before GM had a restriction that no mid-size vehicle could have an engine with a displacement over CID. GM dropped the displacement rule in at the time when the bigger engines were available as regular production options, which resulted with the addition of an SS line option to the existing SS option. Due to the factory having to over-bore the blocks.
GM mandated that all division design their engines to run on lower-octane regular, low-lead or unleaded gas for due to tightening emission requirements. This was also in anticipation of the catalytic converter that would be used on and later models, necessitating the use of unleaded fuel. All engines featured low compression ratios to permit usage of the lower-octane fuels. This change reduced horsepower ratings on the big-block engine to for the cubic-inch V8, but strangely, the LS-5 option received an 'advertised' five-horsepower increase to Early in the model year, the LS-6 option, which had been originally announced as a regular production option on the Chevelle SS forwas dropped.
No official records indicate than any Chevelles were assembled with the LS-6 engine. The base Chevelle SS engine in was a two-barrel cubic-inch V8 that was rated at gross horsepower and optional was a four-barrel carbureted version of the V8 rated at gross horsepower.
Now extra-cost options were the big block engines of earlier years, including the V8 rated at gross horsepower, and the LS-5 V8 with gross and net horsepower. ForChevrolet specifications included both 'gross' and 'net' horsepower figures for all engines to ease the transition to and later years, when Chevy only listed the 'net' horsepower ratings.
With a top engine rated at hp, the Chevelle SS conformed with GM's decree that all engines were to be rated at their net engine ratings. Though the rating was lower, there was no evidence that power had actually changed on production vehicles of that year.
All of the other engines on the SS roster remained unchanged from Halfway through and continuing through the base Chevelle Sport Coupe was offered as the 'Heavy Chevy' model that featured unique striping and other appearance items. This model was available with any V8 engine offered in the Chevelle roster that ranged from the two-barrel to the four-barrel.
The big-block was only offered with the 'SS' package and was not available with the 'Heavy Chevy' option. Since it wasn't as expensive as larger models like the Impala, and came with enough room to seat a family of five comfortable, many customers chose the Chevelle as an economical family car.
Convenience items that were incredibly popular included power steering, power brakes, AC, automatic transmission and radio. Don Yenko, a retired race car driver produced his very own line of signature Chevelles, alongside his own models of Camaros and Novas, which became the Yenko Super Cars.
While at the time the largest engine being installed in Chevelle SS's was the cid V8, Yenko chose to equip his acquired models with the Chevrolet cid V8. This was a very limited edition of Chevelles that ended up being very popular among Chevy fans worldwide.
For the model year, the third generation was unveiled, and the Chevelle underwent a major redesign that involved the so-called 'colonnade hardtop' styling now featuring frameless door glass and fixed 'B' pillars.
Now the rear windows on coupes couldn't be opened anymore, which may have been done so GM could encourage the optional AC even more. The choices of engine ranged from the I6 to the V8 engine. These engines were reliable for numerous miles due to the hardened engine valve seats and hydraulic camshafts and also allowed them to accept the increasingly popular unleaded regular gasoline.
Preventing overheating were crossflow radiators and coolant reservoirs that prevented air from entering the system. Available in ever model were swivel bucket seats and center console for automatic and manual shift cars, along with the instrument gauge cluster. Standard were power front disc and rear drum brakes.
An option from until was a power moonroof. Allowing for easier access and loading, the station wagon was available in 6 or 9 passenger seating featured a rear hatchback door. That was the plan. Aaron took a timeless survivor and carefully updated it. The end result is a car that is fun to drive while respecting its survivor status.
