Muscle Car Drive

1965 Chevrolet Chevelle

1965 Chevellle Convertible

This would be the year the Chevrolet Chevelle matured from its roots. Forget the small block screamers - now these cars were available with big block power. It was now the muscle car leader for General Motors. There were minor exterior changes to the vehicle this year. A new grill with a horizontal chrome bar replaced the relatively plain 1964 grill.
