Additionally, all engine options were available with the choice of automatic or manual transmissions for the first time. Other than the redesigns present in every Chevelle model forthe and DeLuxe remained relatively unchanged in their bare-bone offerings for the Chevelle line.
The DeLuxe continued the tradition of offering slightly more options interior color, more expressive trim than its cheaper counterpart. Both offered the same models offered ina 2- and 4-Door sedan for both, while the DeLuxe had the added option of a 4-Door wagon. The Malibu continued its reign as the leading seller of the Chevelle inwith a production run ofAdditionally, it offered a wider range of interior and exterior color options.
Capitalizing on the growing popularity of the muscle car, Chevy took the Malibu tag off the SS and simply called it the Chevelle SS This, of course, resulted from the cubic inch engine that came standard with the SS.
The base engine produced horsepower, and an optional upgrade known as the L34 that could produce horsepower. The L34 had a taller cam, larger four-barrel and a stronger block.
Additionally, the SS boasted the most luxurious standard interior options, as well as other features such as dual exhaust, sport wheel covers, a tachometer and, what became known as a signature of the Chevelle SS, two simulated scoops. It was a third engine option that really appealed to budding muscle car enthusiasts, the L78which was also a cubic inch V-8, but boasted a horsepower rating and closely resembled the Z package.
According to dealers at the time, Chevy considered the powerful engine directed more toward racing activities than everyday use. Therefore, only about 3, of the L78 models were built, and became more popular as the model year progressed. Keeping the Chevelle at a lower price than the competition specifically Buick and Oldsmobile attracted a large number of buyers interested in muscle car performance on a budget.

Like many of us, he took time off to raise three kids—that is, until he discovered a bare-bones Chevelle that had laid dormant in a friend's garage for 20 years. About the only drivetrain part remaining was the original factory 3.
Sparing no effort, Miracle had the frame and control arms powdercoated. I wanted a no-hassle street driver but with plenty of get up and go, so I went for a ci Rat motor from Ateco Engine in Illinois. When the car was done, it would slow down on cranking. When you released the ignition key when it did start, it felt like a kick in the teeth.
There was a screaming sound as if you kept the ignition key in crank too long after the engine started. Sometimes it would backfire. This could happen at any time, but was worst after the car heated up.
Everything was brand new with all the good parts, so I first thought there was something wrong with the tune. The lettered callouts at the beginning of each line below refer to the photo above.

One of our go-to rescue shops, Norm Brandes' Westech Automotive, is a stone's throw away from Kenosha. When Brandes got the car, he confirmed the slow cranking and starter kick-back. Was it just a tuning issue like the owner thought? That didn't help at all, so we suspected a mechanical or electrical issue. Miracle's Powermaster gear-reduction ministarter should have had more than enough cranking torque to get the job done. Brandes first checked for mechanical interference between the starter drive pinion and flexplate ring gear.
He discovered chipped flexplate ring-gear teeth, a sure sign of a mechanical issue. Mechanical causes of drive pinion-to-ring-gear bind may include:. The starter was no longer screaming and kicking back, but cranking remained slow and lazy. Electrical gremlins like this are hard to find because they appear fine at rest or under a light load, but generate high resistance under heavy amperage draws. Powermaster engineer Dave McILvaine showed up with a handful of digital multimeters to figure out where the ignition and charging circuit was losing current.
Starting at Miracle's trunk-mounted battery, he checked the charging and cranking system for voltage drop on each side of every connector, terminal, and junction while cranking the engine. This includes the often-overlooked grounds, which are part of the full circuit. These tests must be performed with the battery fully charged to To be sure you're not just seeing a battery surface charge, turn on your headlights for 2 minutes with the engine off. Shut everything down. If the static no-draw charge is still If not, you may have a battery issue.It should be noted up front that there are no known numbers for any particular color for a particular series or body style whether it be a solid color or two tone.
