Show Car: 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle

If you are going to throw caution to the wind and drop serious coin on a classic muscle car, do yourself a favor and avoid the air conditioned tent of the big auction houses and instead head to the back pages of your local Autotrader Magazine craigslist where you can find all sorts of classics for reasonable price.  Find this 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle offered for $19,500 in the SF Bay Area, CA.  Tip from FuelTruck.

This is a lot of money to drop on a classic ride equipped with Chevy’s 327 V8, but if you want a really nice example of a classic muscle car, don’t expect to pay 1982 prices. The 2nd generation Chevelle was sold from 1968-1972 and was powered by everything from basic 230 inline-6 to monster 454 cubic inch big blocks.

This Chevelle is powered by a 327 cubic inch small block that was rated at 275 horsepower and mated to a 2-speed powerglide automatic transmission.  This isn’t the Chevelle that you take to the drag strip, but it’ll do plenty burnouts on the way out of the local drive-in.
