1969 Chevrolet Chevelle

The 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle received new tail lights but otherwise remained the same. However, there were some changes to the powertrain offerings and the models. Now, the SS option was available on lower end models such as the 300 Deluxe and Malibu.


Base, convertible, Malibu (high decorative options), 300 Deluxe

Super Sport (SS): 325hp 396cid standard motor, 2 other 396 options (L34,L78) available, chrome wheel moldings, SS396 badges, twin bulge hood, heavy duty suspension.

Beaumont: Canadian option - essentially a pontiac styled grill and dash. Otherwise the same as and SS with the exception of the badging which stated SD-396.

COPO: A very rare but possible option for the Chevelle which is similar to the 1969 Camaro option for a factory installed 427cid motor. Basically they were built on SS396 cars but did not have any badging. These were the ultimate Chevelle!
