Another one of my favorite cars is the Chevrolet Chevelle. The Chevrolet Chevelle was a muscle car produced from 1964 through 1977. Super Sport models were available through 1973, and Lagunas from 1973 through 1976. The Chevelle basically provided the platform for the Monte Carlo, which was produced in 1970. Intentionally, the Chevelle was made to complete with the Ford Fairlane. My dad actually had a 1970 Chevelle (until a drunk driver hit them and totaled it.) Chevelles are some of my most favorite old muscle cars because they were made mean. They are quick, a mid-size car so they could fit some of the family, and they are just beautiful. They are simple, yet head-turning cars. The 1970 396 SS Chevelle (the kind my dad had) included a 350 horsepower underneath the hood. It was a pretty powerful car.Chevelles that are still around today can sell at $50,000+.
