Best Years of the Chevy Chevelle SS Muscle Cars
The Chevrolet Chevelle is one of the most iconic classic muscle cars ever produced. The Chevelle is often cited and compared with other legendary muscle cars such as the Pontiac GTO, Plymouth Hemi Cuda and Shelby Mustang GT500. Many muscle car enthusiasts go so far as to declare the Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 as the king of muscle cars. Other Chevelle fans would debate that designation, however, and insist that the ’69 Chevy Chevelle COPO is king. Either way, few Chevelle aficionados would disagree that the model steadily improved from its inception in ’64 to its pinnacle in ’70. 1970 also marked the highest Chevelle production volume at nearly 634,000 units, while in 1964 it sold the least at just under 371,000. After 1970, it suffered a slow decline until the model was discontinued.
Today, the performance-oriented Chevelle Super Sport models are considerably more collectable, thus this list of the best Chevy Chevelle muscle cars was limited to only SS variants. Since the Chevelle was such a muscle car icon, it’s naturally a model that many enthusiasts wish GM would re-introduce. If they do, then Chevy’s big powerful coupe would possibly dethrone the reigning Hellcat Challenger.
