Chevrolet Chevelle is a representative of the golden age of the American automobile industry, when three bodies of three adjacent years were actually three completely different cars, and a sedan, station wagon and, say, a coupe were strikingly different from each other even within the same model year. Designers in those days were given full carte blanche for creativity, for which, in fact, we love the US auto industry of the 60-70s!
Nevertheless, the sedan was once considered the most uninteresting bodywork, and buyers preferred Chevelle coupes and hardtops, which were more catchy and extravagant. However, today, in the era of inexpressive “soap” cars, even the most modest guest from the past looks like a daring and stylish muscle car.
Chevelle in Tuxedo Black with wide-eyed and gleaming slightly tarnished chrome muzzle, with a profile a la “Cola bottle” and stylishly bumping into the roof pillar corners of the rear doors is very cool! A rather rare interior trim color is olive. The upholstery of the seats is combined, vinyl-textile, although there are no chairs as such: there are two solid sofas in front and behind. However, separate front seats were available if desired.
The steering wheel that is on this instance was considered luxury – the basic steering wheel is very simple and looks like a three-spoke wheel from an old UAZ. At that time, passive safety had just begun to bother: the Chevelle dashboard is already soft, but the steering wheel is still all metal, and the column does not fold upon impact. The car was equipped with air conditioning, but over the years of operation, it was, unfortunately, lost. The owner has yet to restore it.
Between the two dial gauges (speedometer on the left and combined on the right) there is a square plug with the inscription “Chevelle”. In some modifications, in its place was a “tape” tachometer, the arrow of which was motionless, and the scale, designed in the form of a movable tape, rose with a set of revolutions, like a float. The solution is very beautiful and unusual, and the current owner plans to find such a tachometer and install it. Seat belts are the simplest, yet without inertial retractable mechanisms. Therefore, brackets are installed on the ceiling so that the belts do not create a mess when not fastened.
The engine of this Chevelle is the most modest available: the features of a departmental order and payment at the expense of the treasury, apparently … An inline six with a volume of 3.8 liters 230 CID is a classic cast-iron lower engine, which was also called Turbo Thrift. The engine, despite its “basic”, very successful and famous. Actually, this motor, slowly modifying, existed from the 30s to the 90s of the twentieth century, being installed on countless cars, commercial and agricultural vehicles, as well as ships. And in Brazil and Argentina – until the mid-2000s! On the basis of it, Toyota made its first Type A motor.
Chevrolet was produced from 1962 to 1988. Its power is 140 hp. The power system is a single-chamber Rochester Monojet carburetor with automatic suction on a bimetallic spiral. By the way, after the fuel crisis of the early 70s, “Turbo Thrift” was also valued for its efficiency: now “an economical engine with 17 liters per hundred” sounds ridiculous, but at that time it was perceived that way against the backdrop of voracious V8s …
The engine is aggregated with a simple three-speed manual transmission with a shift lever on the steering column connected to the backstage with rigid rods. Through similar rods and hinges, by the way, the force from the left pedal to the clutch fork is also transmitted.
