Description
 
The Chevelle was an all-new introduction for the 1964 season, slotting into Chevrolet's line-up between the compact Chevy II and its traditional full-size models such as the Impala. Boxily styled like the Chevy II, the Chevelle could be ordered with inline six-cylinder or V8 engines, while at the top of the range there was the Malibu 'Super Sport' (SS) iant. The Chevelle arrived just as the 'muscle car' era was dawning in America and by mid-1964 it could be ordered with GM's 327ci (5,360cc) V8 engine in either 250 or 300bhp versions. Several re-styles later, the Chevelle arrived in the '70s decade billed as 'America's most popular mid-size car.' Like most American cars of its era, the Chevelle could be ordered with a bewildering iety of extra-cost options, including engines of up to 450bhp, in which configuration the Super Sport version was one of the fastest muscle cars ever built. The introduction of unleaded gasoline and increasingly tough emissions legislation saw power outputs fall during the mid-to-late 1970s, making the 1970/71 Chevelles the last made when it was only performance that mattered. Finished in blue metallic with white upholstery and dark grey carpets, this 'matching numbers' Chevelle Coup(c) was supplied new via Rumsey Chevrolet of Swarthmore, Pennsylvania. Built to special order at GM's Baltimore, Maryland plant, it boasts an impressive specification encompassing the following extras: tinted glass; Strato front bucket seats; 'SS' door rim pad emblem; recessed windscreen wipers; special performance suspension; Positraction rear axle with 3.31: 1 ratio; front disc brakes; '396' - actually 402ci (6.6-litre) - 4-barrel carburettor, L34 code V8 engine rated at 350bhp and 415lb/ft; four-speed manual gearbox; dual exhausts; power steering; instrument package; AM pushbutton radio; and special bonnet with Cowl Induction. Having covered just 1,000-or-so miles since the completion in 2008 of an extensive restoration, this iconic mid-size muscle car is an extremely attractive motor cars and turns heads wherever it goes. It is accompanied by restoration invoices, current MoT/tax and a framed copy of its original build sheet.
