From their 1963 launch, Chevrolets A-Body intermediate models were a runaway sales success thanks to their crisp, attractive styling, extensive options, and sheer value for the dollar. Capable of accommodating every available powerplant from thrifty inline sixes to small-block V-8s and eventually Chevys hot Mark IV big-block engine starting with the limited-production Z-16 option of 1965, the Chevelle lineup offered literally something for everyone. Chevy stalwarts including Malcolm Durham, Dick Harrell, and others immediately modified Chevelles for the dragstrip and the mid-size Chevy became a fixture in NASCAR competition. On the street, the performance-oriented Super Sport remains without doubt the most desirable Chevelle model through and a high-performance icon with a formidable performance reputation that continues today.
A major redesign for 1968-model year brought a sportier new look courtesy of a three-inch reduction in wheelbase length and long-hood, short-deck styling with crisply tapered fenders and a rounded beltline adding further appeal. The Chevelle and its upscale Malibu counterpart was available in virtually every conceivable body style, including convertibles, coupes, hardtop coupes, sedans, and station wagons, plus the highly popular El Camino car/pickup hybrid. The basic design theme continued through 1972 and it remains the most popular among todays enthusiasts, with legions preferring the 1969 models as the best of the breed. Internally coded Z25, the Chevelle SS396 unseated the revered Pontiac GTO as Americas most popular muscle car, selling an all-time high 86,307 units including the Malibu hardtop and convertible, 300 hardtop and sedan, and El Camino body styles.
