2dr Coupe 6-cyl. 230cid/140hp 1bbl

Model Overview

History of the 1968-1969 Chevrolet Chevelle

More curves and a noticeably pinched mid-section made the restyled '68 Chevelle resemble a pop bottle. Flush-mounted glass replaced the tunneled window in back, and Malibu models received stylish hideaway windshield wipers. Beneath that shapely skin was a revised full-frame chassis based on two new wheelbases: 112 inches for two-door bodies and 116 for four-doors and wagons.

The Malibu-based SS 396 coupe and convertible were joined by an El Camino SS 396 in 1968. In 1969, the SS 396 was repackaged as an options group (RPO Z25), and for one year only the Z25 equipment was made available in the low-priced 300 Deluxe series, which unlike the top-shelf models featured exposed windshield wipers. Both an SS 396 300 sport coupe and sedan were available (each in quite low numbers) for 1969, making this the only time a Super Sport Chevelle appeared with a window “post.” Even rarer was 1969's COPO Chevelle, powered by the Corvette's 427-cid V-8.
