Chevrolet introduced the second-generation Chevelle in 1967 as a '68 model. Between its launch in '68 and until the end of its production cycle in 1972, the Chevelle received minor updates and changes to its overall design in 1969 and in 1971. During its short production run, the Chevelle was available as a two-door hardtop, coupe, convertible, sedan, coupe utility, a four-door sedan, hardtop, and a station wagon.
The engine options available in the Chevelle was as diverse as its available body styles. The base engine was a 230 cubic-inch, 3.8-liter Chevrolet inline-six with 140-horsepower and the top-of-the-range engine was the LS6 optioned 454 cubic-inch, 7.4-liter Big-Block V8 with 450-hp. Depending on the engine option selected, the Chevelle came equipped with either a three-speed manual, a four-speed manual, a two-speed automatic, or a three-speed automatic transmission.
