Good stuff, 68 Chevelle, something not that common.

I'm sick of seeing Rustangs sorry Mustangs, everywhere don't mind them, just far to common.

I don't mind seeing mustangs. Far less of them than Camaros. Any website dealing with pro-touring = 1000 Camaros, 1 of something else. BooOoOOoOOOOOOORrrrring

Chevelles are full frame cars frank

68 Is different from the 70 model, rarer - probably, not as desirable though, so if you ever need to sell, could be tricky.

Chev - You should feel more comfortable in them, they are a full size muscle car, and a fair bit larger than the camaro you have which is a pony car.

Hope to see the pictures soon.

Chevelle's are full chassis with coils front and back. And they are A-body which is mid size car.
That is why some say they are considered muscle cars as you could get a mid size car with the engine of a full size car (big block).

By today's standards chevelles are big, but yes, midsize in their day.
A full size muscle car would be something like an SS Impala or thunderbolt Galaxie.

They called the 68-70 Charger mid size.

Those cars are a foot+ longer than chevelles.

I asked "that is mid size???" Well compare to what Frank said... Those rocket wing size hot rod's - then yeah.

Guess if your comparing to a bus, most things are mid size or smaller.

Welcome to the chevelle club Goran.
Took me a while to decide too but wanted something different and the 68 hit the mark.
Finished the interior, back to factory and I'm running a 350 which is plenty for cruising around but contemplating upping the HP or dropping in a BB.....decisions decisions..
