1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396

History Overview:

The Chevelle was next in Chevrolet’s size hierarchy after the full-size Impala. It was introduced in 1964 to compete against Ford’s Fairlane.  The Chevelle was conventional:  front engine, rear drive, coil springs in front, leaf springs in the rear.  It provided almost as much interior room as the Impala, but had more sensibly sized exterior.  In effect, it was a revival of the ideally proportioned, middle-wheelbase “Classic” Chevrolet of 1955-57.  Sales went nowhere but up, from 328,400 units in its first year to nearly 440,000 by 1969.  The addition of numerous performance options and its own Super Sport variations greatly enhanced Chevelle’s appeal.
