The Chevrolet Chevelle is a mid-sized automobile that was produced by Chevrolet in three generations for the 1964 through 1978 model years. Part of the General Motors (GM) A-body platform, the Chevelle was one of Chevrolet's most successful nameplates. Body styles included coupes, sedans, convertibles, and station wagons. The "Super Sport" versions were produced through the 1973 model year, and Lagunas from 1973 through 1976.

After a four-year absence, the El Camino was reintroduced as part of the new Chevelle lineup in 1964.

The A-body Monte Carlo, introduced in 1970, also used a platform that was based heavily on the Chevelle platform, although it was lengthened ahead of the firewall.

The Malibu was the top of the line model through 1972 and completely replaced the Chevelle nameplate starting with the redesigned and downsized 1978 model year.[1]
