If you’re a car person, hell even if you’re not, you know the name Chevelle. Chevrolet produced the popular muscle car from 1964-1978 with the first two generations being the most sought after in today’s market.
Searching for a clean, all original Chevelle can be one tall order, especially if you’re on a budget. These cars demand quite the premium today, with the most expensive ever sold going for 1.15 million dollars back in 2013 at the Mecum auction. That particular model was a 1970 Chevelle SS LS6, meaning it came with a 427 cubic inch engine. In total, only 20 Chevelles ever had the 427 making it the most desirable combination you could have.
This particular car was restored by Car Connection and was verified as numbers matching by the National Chevelle owners’ association. The car came with its original build sheet that actually had to be verified by a forensic analysis before deemed authentic.
Although this is about as good as it gets for a Chevelle, there are plenty of six figure examples selling every month at auctions all around the world. Considering the cheapest Chevelle back in the day sold for $1,501, its safe to say they are appreciating nicely.
